Peril at the North Pole

Headlines on the local newspaper are reporting rumors that there has been a disaster at the North Pole, and the Christmas is in jeapordy, as Santa my indeed be unable to make his annual trip!  Apparently there has been an explosion in the workshop, which sent all of the Christmas items the elves had been working on, raining down over the entire area - basically an explosion of Christmas debris! 

There have been no formal statements as of yet, by any North Pole spokesmen, however an intercepted email sent from an elf to family, states that every where you look, is a blanket of debris, on every flat surface in and around the workshop.  It continued to state that Santa, Mrs Clause, all of the elves and reigndeer, are well, despite the current disarray. 

It is the position of this reporter, that we must all make an extra effort, to bake home made cookies in a bundance to leave out on the 24th, so that Santa might stockpile milk and cookies, to take back to the North Pole, to share with all of it's residents, including the elves and reigndeer, allowing Mrs Clause to concentrate on the clean up of the area, while Santa is making his rounds.  I have already picked out a few of my favorite holiday recipes, including Snickerdoodles, Peppermint Snowballs, and of course the all time favorite of most of us, Chocolate Chip! 

Once the children are bedded down for the night, it has been suggested that we all remain on "standby" to watch for the sleigh, on the off chance that Santa and the reigndeer might not land on your roof, in which case it will be up to all parents to "act" as Santa, in his absence. 

So all, be well, and be prepared, should Santa not stop by this year...

Cute story! I have made my Christmas Cookie List and even bought most of the ingredients. But that's as far as I got with it. I plan to start the baking once I'm on break from work, which starts next Friday. Is the Peppermint Snowball recipe on this site? That sounds like one I might want to add.

Steve, That was very creative. Just wondering if any kiddos around you are worried? I would have believed you! And what are peppermint snowballs??

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
