now that i finally dug out the holiday decorations, and put up the tree, i can feel that christmassy joy flowing through me. so much that all i want to do is eat all our yummy homemade gifts and stocking candies.
last year we made cookies for some gifts, but since i dont plan ahead for things like that, i realized after all the stores were closed that i didnt have vanilla. resourceful as i am (ha) i saw i had three bottles of peppermint extract… and in they went. must have been fate because they were the best cookies ever — and now a new tradition. we have already made two batches….
… of which i finished off at breakfast. seems i better start the january workout mania now.
but first.. back to the kitchen.
