Over the weekend we missed two important days. December 17 was National Maple Syrup Day. We are talking about the real stuff – not ordinary pancake syrup – but real maple syrup.
December 18 was Bake Cookies Day. That’s an easy one to celebrate this time of year. I challenge you to make a homemade batch – that your mother or grandmother made. My all-time favorite recipe was my mother’s recipe but was usually made by my grandmother. It is a terrific recipe for soft molasses cookies. Not only are they fabulous, they bring back so many wonderful memories of “helping” my grandmother in the kitchen.
Today is Look for an Evergreen Day! When only a real tree will do…today is the day to go looking for it. Many people have their tree up but if you don’t this might be the day to do it.
