We decided to brave some traffic and very wet streets and go out to dinner. After my 12 mile run I had a hankering for fresh pitas and hummus, and Jacob was kind enough to join in the Mediterranean craving and take me to Pita Jungle for gyros and hummus.
Last year we made my Mom's amazing soft sugar cookies (recipe and post HERE), and we decided those needed to happen again this year!
We assembled ingredients (picture above) and got to work rolling and cutting out cookies. I sure love that this boy knows how to bake, such a bonus quality I had no idea I was getting!
There was plenty of joking, talking, flirting, planning Christmas travel, and quality time while we frosted a whole bunch of cookies.
(heart shaped J+C cookie)
We couldn't have been happier with the final product, and couldn't have had a better treat to enjoy while laughing our heads off watching Elf!
Anyone else have a favorite Christmas treat you enjoy creating together for a date?
