In Which I Prepare For Snow And Valentine's Day

We're due for about two feet of snow this weekend. It's supposed to start tomorrow and last through Saturday night and I AM SO EXCITED! I love snow. This has been a very snowy winter indeed and I couldn't be happier about it.

Forseeing a possible snow-in, I'm going out tonight to pick up shoes for the romantical Valentine's evening Mr. Marzipan and I have planned supplies to make Valentines for AlmondGirl's classmates. I also signed up to make cookies for their Valentine's Day party, so maybe we'll bake cookies this weekend too. They freeze well. I use this recipe from Epicurious for my cutouts, and I think the subtle nutmeg flavor really adds a lot to the standard sugar cookie experience. I've also heard good things about this shortbread though. Perhaps two batches of cookies are in order...

Frosting-wise, I'll probably do standard royal icing. I like do to a piped edge and then flood the center before letting the kids decorate with various sprinkle.

Cookies! Snow! Arts and crafts! I'm such a child.


  1. I'm wishing we were going to have snow so I could do cookies and frosting. Yum!

  2. You can have some of ours if you like! I love snow, but this is insanity.
