So it’s December? Or should I say it’s almost 2013?! Not like you need me to state the obvious, I’m just reflecting on how much of my “life” seems to be under different categories. I’m obviously not able to keep up with every thing (this blog included) but I’m not quite willing to let it go. I really enjoy posting recipes and more times than not, I’m thinking about what I’m making as a blog post (after the fact) but then I never get a chance to catch my breath or write it up. Ah, but there are such worse things in life.
After a soon-to-never-be-released comic strip on Mommy-Plans-Gone-Wrong marathon of errand running yesterday and bath time, etc, I did manage to not only make the cookie doughs but I rolled out the roll out cookie and gingerbread between pieces of parchment (4 large pieces each) and slid them into the fridge. That way today I merely had to pull the pre-rolled dough out and put it in front of the kids for them to cut out shapes; decorate and go. Honest to goodness, it was the best choice ever. What two or four or forty-three year old has the patience for cookie making? Not me, I tell ya. But thanks to my kids, I don’t think all of my Christmas cookies will be naked from here on out. Today we made three different kinds of Cookies: roll out cookies, GF Joe’s Gingerbread Cookies and PB Kiss Cookies (the no flour version).
Not too shabby.
Tomorrow, me/myself/I will attempt to gather 3 toddlers and a wonderful 8-year-old around a table for the royal icing to decorate the gingerbread men. I think I will lose my mind. Or not. It could be the messiest fun I’ve had in days!
Hope that life is treating you well. May you have many messy happy moments this season.
We could all certainly use them.
Merry Christmas, All.
