GUESS THE SECRET WORD AND WIN NADDA... ALA M48ORTAL !

Michael, aka m48ortal, was asked if he would select a secret word for this round...he willing obliged. If you recall, Michael was asked to develop a game for the workplace office party. He sought help from his fellow Sploofusers and received tons of great ideas. Now, without further ado, Michael kicks off this round of "Guess The Secret Word and Win Nadda", with the following blurb -

"If you've followed the "Help! Ideas Needed" thread, then you know that I'm preparing for my workplace office party. The secret word is something that I know I will see there. Thanks to Bobolicious and Summertime for creating these threads. Merry Christmas."
Michael

While I'll probably see everything named so far except Judy/Fudy's (we've rented a meeting room and it has no copier), so far no one has named the item(s).

Nope. I don't believe I look like Santa from that view (but then, I've never seen either of us from that angle.) Here's basically the set-up for this gathering:

We are part of a multi-county education co-op, each county having its own crew of instructors. At Christmas, the director (his secretary actually - we know who does the real work) reserves a meeting room large enough for all of us, with some spouses, to gather for a pot-luck dinner and ornament exchange. Last year we had 50-some attendees. For more details on this, see the "Help! Ideas Needed" thread. The main office provides the meat entree, and each district group brings whatever they're assigned. After lunch we have some entertainment and do the (wrapped) ornament exchange. To use a regionalism, it's a time to pitch a real founder.

Concentrate on this piece of information as stated by Michael - "A meeting room large enough for all of us, with some spouses, to gather for a pot-luck dinner and ornament exchange."

Oh you are so warm! I just heard the exact word on the USPS commercial for flat-rate shipping. The mailman says it right before the lady in pink says "Okey-Dokie."

Ta-Da! Yes, it was Snickerdoodles!

A woman I work with was selling cookie dough (that her child was supposed to sell), so I told her to mark me down for some. "Some" turned into snickerdoodle dough. So when I was told to bring a dessert, there you go!

Congratulations! You really do a great job of following up on hints.

According to a Wiki definition - A snickerdoodle is a type of sugar cookie made with cream of tartar and rolled in cinnamon sugar. It is characterized by a cracked surface and can be crisp or soft depending on preference.

My granddaughter makes these cookies and I enjoy them way too much.

Wanna see a picture? The Snickerdoodke recipe is very easy...one of the least expensive to bake. Here is a link to the Betty Crocker site with an excellent picture and the no muss, no fuss recipe. OBTW Michael....how did your batch bake up?

They are cookies that you feel like you're chewing granulated sugar and want to get to your toothbrush and toothpaste as fast as you can! Yuck! Ha ha

I still don't think I ordered them, as I'm much more of a peanut butter/oatmeal raisin/chocolate chip person. However, when parents in the office bring in their fund-raisers, I always take something. When I taught in public schools, I knew when the fundraisers started and I always ordered from the first child to ask me. Then I could honestly say that I'd already ordered.

I didn't even get to finish the dough. Friday night the snowstorm came through, and we lost electricity and phone service for the past four days. See my photos on my Sploofus page. We ran a small gas heater, with a window slightly open, until we went to bed, then took turns getting up to warm the house again in cycles. We set our milk and other refrigerated stuff outside in the snow, but lost everything in our freezer. The temp was too warm to keep it frozen outside, but not warm enough to melt off the snow.

We've decided to check the after-Christmas sales for a generator.
