A decade of friendship
Yesterday, the girls and I gathered together last minute for a belated Christmas dinner and called forth the long needed girl talk. The night consisted of priceless laughs (which goes well along with inappropriate comments), delicious food, white wine, secret Santa gift exchanges, and board games. More or less sick of seeing food after binging on homemade guacamole, quesadillas, pasta, mash, smoked salmon rolls, Dulce de Leche peanut butter cookies, and a strawberry meringue cake all in one night. I’ve never been more blessed to have such a closely knit group of girls where I can just freely speak without first putting my words in thought. Definitely not a night I expected to have turned out so well since it was pretty last minute, but we did a pretty decent job at preparing all the food within a little over two hours.
The Dulce de Leche peanut butter cookies that I have been tempted to bake for months now has finally been successfully completed. I didn’t think it would turn out too fine and dandy, considering the ultimate cake failure my mom and I encountered the night of Christmas. Long story short, we over-baked the cake (with sparks of flame streaming out of the oven and everything – it was epic) and Santa left us with a black cake.
The recipe for the cookies was snagged from here. Enjoy!
