Gah! Gah! Mmm, sweet things…

I feel crabby and useless today (to quote Lorelai Gilmore – I have also just woken up from a Lindsay Fünke-esque angry nap), which is is a shame because today was Big Christmas Baking day. I am having seriously bad baking karma, exacerbated by a bad week, lack of sleep, and through-the-roof stress levels over Christmas (for which, as yet, I have no plans – yay for orphandom and singlehood?)

ANYway, today had to be baking day because tomorrow is the work Christmas party and I needed a few bits and pieces, including fudge (which turned out a bit  funny, but edible – my younger brother usually makes this), cookies (one batch of one variety burned, another kind was so sticky that I couldn’t cut out shapes very well),  and Cointreau truffles with toasted almonds, which look like this (apologies for camera phone shots):

Ill drag out the camera for proper food porn later.

I'll drag out the camera for proper food porn later.

Yes, my dining room table is that untidy.

So I’ll leave you to drool over those for a bit while I attempt to finish writing the pub quiz for tomorrow’s party.
