I've been meaning to do my holiday baking for weeks now.
Oops! Suddenly Christmas is only two days away and I haven't even started!
Today my agenda calls for finding a recipe online and collecting three others from the files. Hitting the grocery store for missing ingredients is next on the list. I WILL make the dough for the cookies I promised my brother back in December 2009. (In fact, Dec. 25th, 2009.)
Tomorrow I will bake two cakes and the cookies.
Saturday I will bake a pie before the turkey goes into the oven. (And I have to prepare the veggies, too.)
Why, oh why, didn't I do my baking before this?
Well, Christmas, which seemed so far in the future, suddenly snuck up on me.
I love to bake, but because of extenuating circumstances I had to give up my daily aspirin and now standing for longer than half an hour is a major pain--literally. Therefore, Mr. Bar Stool is my new best friend. Yes, I will sit and mix ingredients. We will have cake. We will have cookies. We will have pie.
I've got that computer-generated calendar going now, so next year I'm scheduling baking a LOT earlier. Please hold me to it.
What last minute prep is on your list of things to do for the next couple of days?
