FFAF-Christmas Cheer-Blak Rayne #adult #fun #holidays #gay

Christmas Cheer!

Welcome to BRB, everyone! Can you believe Christmas is next week and then New Years the week after? I don't know about you, but as I get older the days just seem to fly by. I remember my twenties, when it felt like everything took forever, and I thought I'd never age. Now it's all down hill. lol Not really.

Honestly, even after fighting illness, the loss of loved ones, and enduring some difficult times, I have enjoyed my life thus far. Because, in the end, the good has always outweighed the bad. For instance, the laughter, the quirky moments that just happen without rhyme or reason and, the lasting friendships, I've cultivated over the years. And, our crazy families that we can't seem to live without. Those are things that will never be forgotten. 

It's during the holidays, I find myself overcome with nostalgia for my childhood, especially Christmas. It's fun to share memories, mix the old with the new, and keep family traditions alive. My three favourite activities during the holidays are listening to the music and adding to my already large collection of CDs, baking and decorating the Christmas tree.

Today, I thought I'd share a recipe, a little holiday humour, and a few others tidbits, that I hope will make you smile. Have a great weekend!

First the smexy pictures....

Well, jingle my bells.... *big grin*

Now for the humour!

And, a yummy recipe!

Rolled Sugar Cookies
        1 1/2 cups butter, softened
        2 cups white sugar
        4 eggs
        1 teaspoon vanilla extract
        5 cups all-purpose flour
        2 teaspoons baking powder
        1 teaspoon salt
    1.    In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
    2.    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on non-greased cookie sheets.
    3.    Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Happy Yaoi Hunting!
