We got back from all our trips except the smokehouse. Too snowy, and it is too out of the way to want to try the roads. We probably already have another 5-6 inches on top of the foot from yesterday. The ham will just have to wait until tomorrow.
So, library, bagel and grocery shopping done. Today is now football and baking day.
I love cookie dough, probably more than the baked cookies themselves. We are doing 4 kinds of cookies: gingerbread, chocolate topped coconut macaroons, florentines, and nutmeg logs. Darn if that gingerbread dough isn’t the best stuff ever!
I foresee the little snail turning around this week. I am totally craving sweet stuff, so today is going to be a problem. It’s not the end of the world, and a few hundred extra calories won’t make the world stop spinning. This is why I don’t bake in quantity much – I try to do just single servings of things.
I might have to post some pictures when we get the cookies all done.
