Wow, it’s already the week before Christmas…and I still don’t have nearly all of my tasks done! There are my world famous Rosemary Shortbread cookies to make, pack, and ship, and yummies to buy for my own personal holiday snacking stash like the amazing and tasty Edel-Marzipan Stollen from Trader Joe’s–oooooh, yes! My husband never saw it (hey, I am not above hiding good food!) until I toasted him a thick slice from the very last of it. Sorry sweetie!
Even though I love to bake (hey, just so you all know, that Culinary degree wasn’t bought online from a Diploma mill–I baked hard for that!) there are time constraints and limitations, and heck, I’d rather spend my time at the torch! The instant gratification from all those trips to TJ’s is quite apparent in my hips, but geez, life is short! In fact, according to the Mayan calendar, we only have 4 days left….or some such crazy prediction!
So being the responsible and totally connected to the outside world person I am (yea, right) I did purchase some End of the World beer, and am planning to do ……….absolutely nothing in preparation. Ok, maybe I’ll stock up on some more bars and mixes of good dark chocolate, just in case. But that’s just a normal item to stock up on, so I’m not sure if it really counts.
And propane–I’ll fill my two small b b q tanks with propane, but only because I know I have been using a ton of it lately making all the cool Wishing Stars and goofy fun Dog Head beads on my website, and I still have more glass goodies to make for family and friends for the holiday. But I guess it won’t hurt to have another fuel source in case the world does end and I need dinner.
See you (or not) on the 21st!
