Take 324

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
We did it. We bought a Brötchen toaster! Brötchen here is a staple of life. Try as we might, it just simply doesn't fit in a toaster... and now we can have them warmed! Lovely. (And it's smaller than an American Toaster oven... and my counter space thanks me.)

I fell for cookie cutter madness. I bought these cookie cutters thinking, "cute!" In reality, they're so intricate that the cookie dough basically doesn't come out of them once they've been pressed into it. So disappointing.
We got a couple of cars and unicorns out of the deal, but not really without major surgery and care. lol.

We were watching a show and it was *killing me* how much I couldn't place an actress. I went on to look up her history of films and no go. I recognized nothing. And the list wasn't long... And then Brian figured it out. Sisters. In the "Good Wife" there's this amazingly annoying and cheeky lawyer... a blond. And she's the sister. Mamie Gummer. And! They're Meryl Streep's daughters. Go figure.

I have 3 settings for my windshield wipers: Off, On, and Spray. SO. Many. Times, I ended up spraying when I only wanted them to be turned on... and I felt like I was so ridiculous. Well, I finally figured out that when you turn the car off with the wipers in the On position, it doesn't turn back on when the car is restarted. So... Voila! Turning it "On" was actually just moving it from On to Spray, because I hadn't turned them off. 

I haven't cleaned my windshield in the rain in weeks! Go me.

With the latest update, the iPhone can now measure. I've seriously wondered when this would happen... Haven't used it, yet, but I'm curious.

Did you know the Advent Wreath originated in Germany? Me, neither!

Alright. Cookie update: I'm two batches in: Chai Spice cookies (in the photo above) and Smitten Kitchen's Confetti Cookies. More are coming! To a freezer... well, probably not near you. Sorry!

Happy Friday!

And enjoy your holidays! I'll see you in the new year!
