I can’t even believe I’m about to say this: I’m sort of tired of cookies.

I feel like I’ve been baking cookies and cakes and more cookies for a week straight, and although I haven’t eaten them all myself, I’ve eaten enough that my teeth want fall out and look for vegetables.

Which, by the way, that basil up there totally counts as a vegetable. Right?

Okay, an herb. But those onions down there…for sure vegetables.


I just can’t eat any more dang cookies. I could probably bake them. Making pretty Christmas themed cookies doesn’t really get old, but I’ll need a taste tester.

And until I find a reliable one of those, I’m making Christmas themed pizza, instead. Heeere ya go.


Red, White, and Green Pizza
