I am in the process of getting ready to make holiday goodies. This is a stressful time for Mr. Dave. His regular routine of returning home from a hard day of work to relative calm and quietness is continuously being disrupted. There are boxes arriving via UPS every other day containing the stuff I ordered for my goodies projects. Additions have been made to the weekly grocery list for the last few weeks that leave Mr. Dave scratching his head and rolling his eyes as he searches the grocery store isles seeking out unfamiliar ingredients.
I’ve never hosted a cookie decorating day, so I’m scurrying around trying to anticipate what needs to be done and gathering the ingredients I need for baking my share of the holiday goodies. I will be making a number of items ahead of the day we meet to decorate our rolled cookies and that’s keeping me busy and driving Mr. Dave nuts……..
My kitchen is cluttered with cardboard boxes containing essential ingredient stuff. I had to perform a serious hunt for the cardboard box containing all my candy making tools. It got moved from its original storage place to somewhere else. I huffed, puffed, and swore to the Gods of Brutal Vengeance that I am going to do major bodily harm to the next person who relocates stuff I put in one place to another place they consider more logical.
Anyways, I eventually found all my goodie making tools, and have acquired the necessary ingredients. I’ll be sure to share pics of some of my efforts as I progress………..
