I hear an echo


Saturday, December 22, 2012

Spark has slowed way down and seems like everyone is on vacation. I miss reading everyone's blogs. New years resolution ppl will be here soon!

I am actually having one of those rare times of year when I am not hungry, very very very rare. I baked up a storm on Thursday night. I was gonna take a Honey bread to Christmas dinner for Scott's family. So I thought I would make one ahead of time, thank goodness I did cuz it did not turn out and it was way toooo sweet. Then I made a bunch of cookie dough. Made a ton of cookies. After tasting everything I could only stomach 1 cookie and I sent the rest on their way. Sent Scott to work with some. Packed up a bunch and mailed them to my dad for his dialysis ppl. Then gave the rest to my favorite postal workers. I like baking it's fun as long as whats being made has a home to go to. I have some cookie dough still in the freezer, might just put it in the deep freeze try to forget about it. So new plan for Christmas dinner dish. I am gonna make this, I heard it's amazing and I always love utilizing whats in season or was not long ago. I am interested in exploring the savory side of winter squash as opposed to the sweet side which i am already drowning in.

We got snowed on Thursday and the temp outside is 11 yuck! I am already missing my dog walks and my running. Oh well sometimes it's good to be forced to find new exercises to do. That way once the sidewalks aren't sheets of ice, it will all be new and exciting again! I got 4 days off to spend with my husband and dogs. Ahhhhh I don't know what to do with myself. Why does this time off only come when it's dangerous to travel, too cold to exercise and stores are packed with shoppers. Maybe this is why there's so many September babies..

    I'm waiting for the blizzard to arrive. Hate cold weather, snow, and ice.

I am also already sick of sweets. Next year we will have less.

    That squash dish looks good! And not too many weird ingredients to go searching for.

I agree about SP, very slow lately. It bums me out a little. :/

    Ugh to the cold! But at least all that baking is keeping you and the kitchen warm!

    Have a nice holiday!

It was about 32 with snow here, so icy sidewalks for sure. Streets are clear now so I think I'll run outside later this afternoon, hopefully it will be safe!
