First Day of Winter

I had planned on writing a post this morning, but, got busy and the day got away from me. The hour is late, but it's still the first day of winter. Happy Winter Solstice! 

I spent yesterday cleaning up after baking, packaging, and delivering approximately 35 dozen cookies on Monday and doing laundry.  The kitchen was my biggest mess. Usually, I clean up as I go along, or, at least, before going to bed, but that night I was so tired that I just couldn't. Flour, sugar, molasses, and other sticky ingredients were everywhere!

Today Carla and I had a nice visit after having lunch at Mary's. The afternoon and evening were spent making the filling and putting together the Christmas Eve lasagnas. The baking dishes are full, wrapped, and sitting in the fridge, allowing the flavors to meld, while they wait to be baked.

Now, it's nearly midnight and, if I don't get this post out soon, the first day of winter will be over. I'll talk to you again soon! Good night! 💗

Until next time...

    1. It was a lot of cookies, Jean! I sure glad when rolling that last ball of dough! Did you find the sugar cookie recipe okay? If not, give me a holler and I'll FB message it to you. Yes, a great first day of winter and, now, snuggled in and enjoying the storm. I hope all is well on your end, too. Have a great rest of the week and a Merry Christmas, my friend!
