Good Day Sparkfam! Its been one with the holiday coming on & all the preparations & things I need to do. So I made time for my grandson & I to decorate cookies. I wanted to make some butter cookies but didn't have the time. So I bought sugar cookies from the refrigerator section of the grocer & frosting & made them. He loved that I had cut outs of a star, cane, tree & stocking. We made one of each but anyone who bakes knows that sugar cookies aren't the same for shaping as butter cookies. That came out okay but they weren't shaped nicely. You couldn't tell my grandson this cause he loved them! They are pretty sweet but it was fun just letting him think he can cook. Oh, he's making pancakes for breakfast. lol
This weekend, I bought some land o lakes cinnamon butter hoping it would help fill the void of my beloved cinnamon toast. Guess what? It did! It was so deliciously good. Quite surprising too. I can now have a cinnamon toast without loads of guilt. So its one of my new go to snacks but I need to start eating it upside down? What does that mean? Well I was reading an article where they were saying that sometimes we overload our bread & toast with too much jelly or butter. So they suggested that we eat the bread upside down. Doesn't that make sense. I mean, our palate is where on our tongue not root of our mouths! So I tried it & it was so right! Instead of putting more calories on our food why not eat the right way? lol
God bless & enjoy everyday!
