Hello. It’s been a while. I have been entirely focused upon a new job, but I have been missing you. It is December 1st, and true to December’s nature, the clouds opened and dumped upon us. From floods to whiteouts, we’ve had it all today. And the trees and hills have been transformed into a picturesque winter wonderland. I didn’t even mind driving 30 behind the snowplow on the way home from work. At least it cleared a nice path, like a carpet rolled out before me.

Because the snow was piling up so quickly, I was dismissed from work early. I decided to prepare a simple and easy dinner to warm our tummies on a cold day: breaded chicken, buttered noodles, and spinach. Quick and easy. Warm and delicious. And to top it off, Boyfriend stood up, cleared away the dishes, washed, dried, and properly shelved everything. What a day!

Dear December,

Hello, old friend.

Thanks for springing me outta work early. Wanna arrange a snow day for me tomorrow?

I’d be ever so grateful.




P.S. Those Chewy Coconut Lime Cookies I posted about yesterday (recipe from My Baking Addiction) are amazing! Unlike me, make sure you have sugar on hand BEFORE beginning to make the batter. I brought these into work today. Reviews ranged from: “Wow! These taste lime Blue Light Lime!” to “I’ll pay you to bake for me. Seriously.” I think we have a winning recipe here. If you like citrus and buttery soft, melt in your mouth goodness, try these!

I’m hungry. I usually am. I read about food all day. I think about what is and should be in my cupboards, and I wonder who will eat the other 37 cookies that come out of the oven when all is said and done at the end of this Thursday.

Today, it’s dreary again. Wait……….. sun….annnnnnnnd gone. The air is thick and heavy with humidity, and I almost hope for another storm to clear the air. Anyways, the gloom has me thinking about cookies for some reason. And sweets. Any kind of sweets, especially ones with coconut. I found two amazing sounding recipes from My Baking Addiction: Chewy Lime Sugar Cookies and Magic Bars. Both contain coconut, and I wish I was home so  I could start on these immediately. And I think I’ll double everything so I have plenty to take to a party tomorrow evening and to a picnic party on Saturday. Will they keep that long? In the meantime, I’m  still hungry and thinking of cookies.

Dear Clock on the Wall,

Please let me go home!

Pretty please, with a cherry on top? I’m so hungry. For cookies.

With love,
