Today was election day so we got up a tad earlier and went into town to a new polling place, cast our votes and were on our way.
I have still been planning for Christmas and doing a little bit of shopping and some crafting. Since we are not going to be home for Thanksgiving, I am going to start taking down the fall decorations and bringing out the Christmas decorations. Last weekend was warm so we did hang the lights on the outside of the house. Just the ones around the top of the house and the roof of the front porch. That way we don't have to worry about it being as cold as it has been in the past when we were hanging them. I plan on doing more decorating this year than have the last few years as both of the grand girls will be here for Christmas.
Here is my recipe for Icebox Cookies. We all really love them.
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
Soften & cream butter, add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla mix well. Add dry ingredients that have been sifted together. Mix well, add nuts. Roll into rolls in wax paper & refrigerate. Slice and bake at 315 degrees for 12 minutes.
