It's that time of year again - cucciadati making with Alan's mom.
Every year we get together to spend hours making hundreds of Sicilian fig cookies that Alan's mom has been making for several years with her family. A few years ago we started our own tradition of doing our own and this year Alan's brother Mark joined in on the fun (this meant I didn't have to do as much work so this was a very good thing).
When we were done baking cookies & Alan's mom and brother went home we rested for a bit and then finally made our way to see Harry Potter 7. We both thought it was really good in that it gave you the same feeling of hopelessness and despair that the book did. That said, that's not really something that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. I can't wait until July 2011 so we can see how the final chapter turns out cinematically.
