Sightglass Coffee, best coffee in San Francisco

On a trip to San Francisco today, my friend suggested that we should stop by a coffee shop on 7th St on our way into town. My friend sure knows her coffee so I took her advice and we pulled up in front of  Sightglass coffee. I discovered what is now my favorite coffee shop in town :) 
High ceiling, industrial rough concrete, dark wood, burlap and 
very good coffee. 
Love at first sight. Sigh!

Oh, and long after, when I reached home in the evening, after dinner and clean up etc. I made my first spun cotton mushrooms
here are two in progress.

Early bird gingerbread baking

First day of Thanksgiving break today. We enjoyed every minute of it. Cookies were baked and friends came over. Great start of the school break!

IKEA sells frozen cookie dough this year. The dough is ready to roll out after defrosting for one hour on the counter. Roles out easy and tastes great. I am going back for more after Thanksgiving :)
