LONDON COOKIES!

I seem to be stuck in/on London figuratively if not literally...
I can't get these London images out of my head, like the cookie glasses in ZARA's windows...
Or the cookie necklace to beat all cookie necklaces.
If you have a better one do tell...
Cookies to shield you from the sun or snow?
Or from popcorn-eating dogs?
I hope popcorn is not deleterious to hounds...ahem
Here's a non-edible hat in ZARA's window that is pretty delicious non?
Back to British biscuit tins...
And REAL British cookies - Gingerbread in fact!
And what about Christmas cake?!
Well if it's British, I suppose it should be Christmas Pud!
I insist on some British Seville marmelade...sigh
Is it snowing out where you are yet?
We got a light dusting in New York. No, I am NOT in London :(
I went out and 'swept' the snow away this morning with a broom. I saw my neighbor doing it and I could not resist :)
These London doggies are missing their woolly coats mufflers.
Mittens? Heavens, Button up doggies!
BONJOUR LONDON COOKIES!

I like the biscuit tins, too, Carol--we always had them and recycled homemade ones to our friends/neighbors every year at holiday time. And grandma made homemade marmelade jam constantly: I can still smell her kitchen now. Sigh....

Don't you just love taking pictures of store windows? The cookie glasses are a kick!

Oh, my, the Christmas cake and pud bring back memories! My family is English and, when I was a kid, my mother actually made her own cake and pud. It was a lot of work, but very yummy!!

Christmas pudding.
I've always heard about it and never tasted it.
I guess it makes you drunk as a skunk - all that brandy stewing for a year inside.

I LOVE making English christmas pudding though I don't know why they call it a pudding.
Nothing about it shakes

Oh my. I'm afraid I want to eat my cookies, not wear them!

SO appropriate...I fell down my icy front steps and after I lied to my neighbor and told him I was ok and then came insidea and cried, I opened up my Danish Butter Cookie tin and ate half of them.

Cookies. Them's good medicine.

London is the perfect place to be at christmas- just think of Dicken's Christmas Carol! Amazingly, we have an inch of snow- rather early for us. When I finish running around like a madwoman, I must make marshmallows!
