Good Thursday morning! So, it’s that time of year when you just feel the need to bake. Since hubby is diabetic, I’m careful to do sugar-free goodies mixed in with the sugary confections.
Every year I have certain things I bake for all my family. Of course, everyone has their suggestions. So, I always have rice krispy treats, haystacks, sugar cookies, brownies, lemon pies (recipe is at the end of A Christmas to Remember) and cakes. Oh, did I mention that I’m also on a diet, soooooo, yep, this is hard.
Hunter, my son, usually helps with some of the baking, but once I finish his favorites, he leaves the kitchen with a plate of goodies and lets me finish the rest on my own. But he shows up in time to lick the spoon before I toss it in the sink.
So, what do you bake during Christmas? Do you have traditions?
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
It was the Night Before the Night Before Christmas and all through the house everyone was stressed. The Christmas tree was almost bare of needles and the Angel on top was leaning. Dad was rared back relaxing and mom was busy cleaning. The air was filled with the smells of baking. Presents were piled all under the tree, while the kids giggled and smiled with glee. In a little over 24 hours Old St. Nick would be making a visit. It was almost too much to bare.
Well, it’s been a couple of days since my last post, but I’ve been busy catching up with Christmas errands. I’ve finally finished with shopping and wrapping. Was going to finish with the baking tonight, but forgot to buy extra eggs at the store, so I guess tomorrow will find me baking and cooking.
Friday night was our traditional get together with my two step children and step grandson. We do this every year. It’s a time of lots of sweets, hot chocolate and Christmas movies. I always make a loaf of homemade bread that I time to come out of the oven at just the right moment. It was a lot of fun. Our son always enjoys this time with his step siblings and nephew.
Hope all is well with everyone as they gear up for Christmas Eve!
As always, good writing and May God Bless You!
