Really. Who needs a cold right now? Or any time, for that matter? Nose is running, I get chilly really fast, even though I have what seems like a gazillion layers on. And too tired to do all my planned baking.
I got some biscottis, which normally aren't at all in my repertoire, made. They're my son-in-law's favorite, and shhh, don't tell him, he'll get a box for Christmas.
I been meaning to bake more, I even splurged and bought almond flour - holy moses, I had no idea it was THAT expensive - to make Spekulatius, a German spice cookie, recipe found on this website. I also made the Pfeffernuesse from her recipe, I'd never seen a recipe for those, I for some reason thought you could only buy them. Oh, and they really are really peppery! I will, however, skip her recipe for the Dominosteine, since they are my favorite, and I know I would overindulge!
By the time I get home, I have no energy left. Yesterday I dragged myself to the grocery store, bought some baking needs, and then was too tired/sick to do much else. I was in bed a little after 8 PM. But I'm determined to finish my projects, and I will do it.
Of course, now that I'm concentrating on getting my Christmas together, work got busier. Btw, that is NOT a complaint!
Maybe tomorrow I'll bring some baking ingredients to the children, and we'll bake something together.....
Happy preparations, everyone!
