For the last few years I haven’t made any Christmas goodies to spread around to my family and friends.
Perhaps it’s because I’m always baking bread or sweets for our home use all the time that I just can’t get into the mood.
Or perhaps I’m just too lazy.
Don’t get me wrong, I would love to get back that seasonal passion of spending 20 hours of doing nothing but bake up some wonderful holiday morsels and then collapse in a baking coma for 3 days.
Did that come out a little harsh?
Actually, we have some wonderful friends that stop by each year with calorie-laden trays of cookies, breads and cheese, enough to pack on the Christmas pounds for a couple of weeks.
I love those people.
And some day I hope to be able to return that favor. Maybe that will be my New Year’s Resolution: Bake Christmas delights for those that have been so kind to us over all these years.
And I wont have to worry about
breaking it fulfilling it for 11 months!
