Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen
Monday, December 06, 2010
Today was a perfect day to bake in the Christmas kitchen. Snow fell lightly and softly all day long and the wind gusted from time to time. In the midst of the usual Monday tasks of laundry and other housework, I took time to bake 2 kinds of Christmas cookies -- macaroon kisses and gingerbread men. Both are now stored in tins in the freezer, awaiting gift-giving time.
After supper -- a beef pot pie, mashed winter squash, and coleslaw -- I spent some time working on a handcrafted gift and working a bit in my Christmas notebook. There are still a few items I need to buy for further Christmas baking!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
