The children and I baked cookies all day yesterday! Gingerbread, peanut butter blossoms and Chocolate Chip! Yum.
We would have had more as I had planned to bake all day Saturday. Well the best laid plans yada yada yada.
I put in the first batch of PB Blossoms and as I did a stinkbug flew in, unbeknownst to me of course. 3 minutes later and the house stunk to high heaven. Chocolate, peanut butter and stinkbug spray DO NOT MIX WELL. Yes, I swear I almost turned inside out. I tossed that first batch of stinkbug infused cookies and had to put the oven on clean mode. It was like 35 degrees outside but I had the front door, sliding glass doors and kitchen windows open and I still couldn't stomach the smell.
I am now waging a personal war on stinkbugs.
On a happier note, it has decided to snow just a lil bit today. The kids are so happy! Snow for Christmas on the Eastern Shore of Maryland is rare.
Merry Christmas to all and may God bless you!
