It's no secret that I like to eat. Especially sweet stuff. Cookies, cake, candy, I like it all. The problem is, I eat it, I wear it, and who wants that.
But tis the holidays! You're supposed to overeat. You're supposed to bake, Bake, BAKE! (The Pop-n-Fresh Doughboy said so!)
My excuse this year NOT to bake (and I'm really clinging to it) is I HAVE NO TIME. Now, we all know this is a lie. I used to work 40 hours a week, AND put in my time at the co-op and I still managed to find time to bake for the holidays. I'm desperately trying NOT to find time to bake because I keep seeing my butt in the full-length mirror and thinking, "I really need to go on a diet." (Can you say New Year's Resolution?)
There's a box of brownie mix on the counter that's saying, "Bake, me, Bake me!" I recently found Eva Wiley's (God bless her soul) peanut butter fudge recipe--the BEST in the universe. And I came across Ruth Megan's peanut butter cookie recipe that I thought was lost forever. *Sigh* in the same league as the fudge recipe.
Cut-out cookies are just too much work, what with decorating and all...so the above are my choices for Christmas goodies. Then again, maybe I should just buy them.
But that doesn't solve the butt problem.
(That's part of last year's production on the right.)
