This Monday the ladies of the IFA, along with a few other guests, gathered at my home in picturesque southwest DC (sadly, my home lacks the adorable names so many IFA abodes have–any suggestions for remedying that?) to exchange a wide variety of delightful homemade Christmas cookies. Deliciousness, gossip, and a whole lot of wine drinking naturally ensued. And of course, we documented our baking accomplishments for posterity and IFA blogging. Above is by far the most boring and unambitious entry of the evening: my green, Christmas tree-shaped rice krispie treats. Yes, I know it’s violating at least 14 tenets of the foodie gospel, but if you haven’t figured it out yet from all my candy posts so far, my views on food are about as far from foodie fundamentalism as Christopher Hitchens’ theological views are from Rick Warren’s. Besides, colored, holiday shaped rice krispie treats are a tradition in my family. And if you claim you don’t think they’re tasty, you’re a dirty rotten liar.
Anyway, stay tuned for more proper holiday cookie swap photos, with recipes, over the rest of the week!
