Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been inspired to make iced sugar cookies. You know the ones - they come in cellophane bags and cost like 1 mill per cookie....
Here are some pics of my first attempt:

(This guy actually lost his head and neck, and had to be surgically attached)

A better shot of them on a black background:

They were a huge hit with the Thanksgiving crowd. What do you think?

Do the math

What is (17 + (14 x 3) ) x 13?
767, or the number of steps I climbed on a cook day this past Monday, a 5th floor walk up.
From floor 1 to 2, 17 steps, and 14 steps separating the other floors.
First flight was empty handed, second was with all the groceries, third was with one of my equipment bins, approximately 40 pounds (maybe more) and ditto for the fourth.
The descent was equally as painful.
THANK GOD for my legs of steel. HAH, just kidding.
But, really, thankfully I am in shape, or else I'd be crushed.
My legs were like jelly at the end of the day and felt like I had never worked out before in my life.
It was a good cook day, however, and so I was glad to endure the pain.
