Home again, home again

After two and a half days of sin and debauchery, we flew back home yesterday afternoon.
Look how close the airport is to the strip, you can see the Luxor pyramid on the south end. Thankfully we were smart enough to leave enough food in the house so that we didn't have to go out anywhere when we got home. Instead we could lounge on the couch and enjoy the incessant jack-hammering from the water company who had our whole front yard tore up (we have the water valves in our yard) while working on pipe leaks in both our road and the side road next to us. Good times!

While killing time at the airport I ran across a recipe for coconut macaroons on a food blog that I wanted to try when I got home. Well, today was as good of day as any so I whipped up a batch of gluten free Pumpkin Spice Coconut Macaroons.
I really liked them (though not as well as Face's macaroons), but the boy acted like I fed him poison. He made the WTF face, violently squirmed around and looked for the nearest thing to spit it out on to. Granted, I fed him a bite of the uncooked dough (there's no eggs in it), but I thought it was actually tastier than the final, cooked product. I blame it on his busted up taste buds since he brought home a cold from Vegas. On the bright side, he said there's no worries that he's going to eat all my cookies!

Mmmm macaroons. After I survive my deadline for the book -- I'll bake you some and ship them for your birthday. I've just been swamped.

Well crap, if I'd known it was that easy I would have said something sooner!
