Hey, maybe it's the Tylenol that turned me into Betty Freaking Crocker. I baked yesterday for about 7 hours. It was another late night. The boys and I made a couple of batches of choc chip cookies. OMG... So, much for what you see on t.v. or in commercials. It's sad to say, but I hadn't baked with them for a while. I now know why. They are all over the place, trying to dump stuff in before it's ready, arguing over whose turn it is (even though they each had their own bowl). When we finally got them in the oven, it was then, "Can I have one now?" Again...just as they've gone in the oven. Usually I actually have pretty decent patience with the boys. Weird, huh? I've really never had patience w/ anyone, until I had them. And my patience level got a million times better, after Cal's diagosis. Well, actually, with everyone. Anyway, baking was a bit of a disaster. So, why am I about to do it again, when I'm done w/ the blog? Lord, only knows... This time I made the sugar cookie dough earlier, so hopefully it will just be them using cookie cutters. Really, hopefully that's the extent of it. I hope the turn out.... It's the first time I've done sugar cookies without buying the dough in a tube. True fact. I've never been great in the kitchen. However, 'tis the season. I've already made a couple batches choc chip, brownies, pumpkin cake w/ cream cheese frosting, and oatmeal w/ butterscotch cookies. It'll be another late night of baking, too. Lots of people to bake for. It's a small town, you've got to do these things. I took a big thing of baked goods to the post office people today. This town is like Mayberry (except there's a lot of bitches here, have yet to run into Aunt Bee).
I must pay a quick homage to my dear friend Caity. She's the first of us to hit the big 4-0. Yesterday was her birthday. I hope everyone has a friend like Caity in their life. She's the one that you know, 100% of the time will have my back. It's a genuine friendship, with a mutual love and respect for each other. I can't wait to celebrate in person, along w/ a few others in March for our group bday celebration in Vegas. It's Vegas. What could possibly go wrong? LMAO.....
Hope you guys are nearing finishing up on your shopping, etc. I'll finish up on Friday. Tomorrow will be pretty busy, as we're having an Ugly Sweater party at our house. Yep, all few of our friends will be here :)
Miss you guys,
P.S. I hope you are eating better than me....I keep trying the baking. I haven't made a bunch of this stuff before, and I need to make sure it turns out. That's logical, right?
P.P.S. Those of you that know about the inappropriate pictures a group of us tend to take w/ statues, etc. I did a good one today. If you want it, let me know, and I'll text it to you. But it goes no further than that. Santa has a rep to protect.
