A Christmas Tradition

Christmas 2010

Apparently, George (and his family) and I were having so much fun we forgot to take a picture. I know we celebrated together, but I can’t find any evidence.

Christmas 2011

My mom is a teacher and receives all types of gifts this time of year. I don’t think I’ve ever seen something so “healthy” as this particular gift she brought home this year. It seemed like the perfect gift to share for dessert with George and Jaimie. Our typical meet-up location is a local Red Robin, and this year we tried a new one where we will not return. They were out of fries (!), our waitress stole our pepper, and after she left for the night, no one checked back in on us during the last hour we were there to refill our Diet Cokes.

While we still had Diet Coke in our glasses we gave the chocolate chip cookies a try. With apologies to C, I don’t think any of us will have them again. We noticed an interesting scent to them, and unless we were biting into a chocolate chip they were very dry. Dipped in milk, or covered in ice cream, they might be tolerable.

Gluten or no gluten, I love my DOC holiday traditions. I can’t wait until next week when I attempt to meet a new friend while I am at my brother’s!


My mom and I are now in the midst of baking treats to take to my brother’s house, and they will be filled with wheat, gluten, and dairy!
