Wednesday Menu: Lunch: Ham and Cheese Pockets, Chips and Carrots
Dinner: Red and Green Kabobs, Baked Beans, Veggies and Christmas Cookies Galore (Gingerbread Men, Sugar Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies)
I could feel the vultures circling today; I was baking Christmas cookies. I make a dessert every week, and generally they don’t bother me much unless they happen to be in the kitchen when I’m taking the dessert out of the oven. But, there must be something special about Christmas cookies. As I pulled the first tray of sugar cookies out of the oven, I heard a voice behind me exclaim, “Ooo Christmas cookies! It just smells like Christmas!”. Then, later as I pulled the gingerbread men out, another came in and was helping himself to the sugar cookies (I put a stop to that). He also wanted to decorate a few; so I let him. Another came down and complained that he could smell them in his room, and to make up for it, I had to let him have a cookie. Then last of all, my brother came bounding down, “I came as soon as I heard…” Then he looked rather disappointed. He was hoping to help decorate the gingerbread men. I had already decorated those, and was half through the sugar cookies so I let him help with those. If I had known decorating cookies would be such a draw (hahaha, me and my hilarious puns), I wouldn’t have decorated any cookies, and would have just left them the icing to decorate their own.
