SHHHHH I played hooky today!!

And baked all day!

With all the happenings with my company being sold and the inevitable layoff headed my way a few months from now, I just wasn't feeling that "Let's go to work and give 110% today!". So I didn't, I played sick and baked all day.

I found out yesterday that my 2 bosses both already have new jobs and will be gone shortly after the new year. So that means more work is headed my way since I plan on staying until the very end. Unless of course something better comes up!

Bad thing about baking all day, is tasting all of the finished products and forgetting to drink my water because I was busy all day long. Also forgot to take my vitamins and basically forgot to actually eat. I had a shake this morning and green chili with a tortilla for dinner but that was about it.

Anyway, totally bad for the waistline but something I have been doing every year for the holidays is baking some italian goodies.

This is how my day started...Nice and clean!
And it ended up like this....

And the results of this mess!?!?!? Yummy!!! I am taking these all to work so they can be eaten there!
Almond Crescent Cookies!
Chocolate Chip Cookies & Lemon Almond Biscotti!
Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti!

Pizzelles & Canoli Shells!

Hopefully this will conclude my baking for the season! We have fondue planned for New Year's.

My goal for the next 10 days?!?!? Not to gain ANY weight over the holidays!

Happy Thursday! So glad tomorrow is Friday followed by 4 days off!
