Every year, we attend a fun family-and-friends outdoor curling event organized by my sister and her hubby. What a blast these events are – the last 2 years a Polar Blast! The temperature after the sun
set, dropped to -24°C and and the entertainment had only reached the quarter finals. Yet the extreme cold is part of the charm of the event as people bundle up and congregate, chat, drink and entertain themselves to stay warm. During and afterwards, a massive spread of the most delicious hors d’ouvres, food, drink and desserts welcomes the guests back inside where tales of everyone’s successes and dissappointments are traded over a tasty cookie and glass of wine. This year’s spread was a variety of most of my maintstay cookies with a vintage Valentine card printed cookie as the centerpiece. Check it out, and Happy Valentines Day!
