Glad to see a post from you, Pingo, and totally understand you've no time nor energy right now to fill us in on the shower details. A picture is worth a thousand words - so hoping you are able to post one your son took.
My water heater is installed. Son brought cookie baking GD over with him and she and I scoured a cookbook from OLA for a cookie recipe using the limited supplies (1 egg for instance) that I have on hand. Found a cinnamon sugar cut out cookie, which, as it promised, was ready to roll and cut after half an hour's chill in fridge. We, she, father and me, all critiqued it, she rating it she'd want to make again and "good", her father "good", and me "don't bother." Had it been chocolate, I'm sure my rating would have been higher. Sort of like a shortbread, but it was a nice change from the regular ones we make. We did add our own touch, that of the crystal sugar sprinkles on top! Guess that will be her and my signature touch on cookies. Made a gingerbread man running, a star, a small christmas tree, 0h, wait - - - -
