Not today! Today, with the warm vibes from Sylvia, our oven took to the heat, and hasn't slowed down! We are so thankful, and so busy. I've made quick bread, and gingerbread, and I am gearing up to just go ahead and get the turkey in there, too. Gotta make feast, while the iron's hot. Err... something like that.
I decided to roll the cookie dough in a chocolate dusting, instead of white flour. The chocolate is Spicy Hot Cocoa from Trader Jose and not only did it keep the gingerbread dark, and stop it form sticking, it added a wonderful flavor, without drying out the dough. Muy bueno.
Oh, and by the way... one of the cookies broke, and we had to have a mercy sampling, you know, to put it out of its misery. Trader Joe's makes a good gingerbread mix, and sprinkled with their Spicy Hot Cocoa... Tasty!
Goats, I tell ya! Gingerbread Goats, and when Maria comes home from school today, and I tell her we can decorate them with a little white icing, she is going to leap with joy, like a Gingerbread Goat!
I love that image of Maria leaping with joy, just like the goats! And I hope Tasha's doing her own share of leaping?
"Thermafail 2000" *snerk!* Which one of your clever boys came up with that one?
Cocoa powder--what a brilliant idea! Very stealable. :)
Salivating here. I love gingerbread. Sadly we do not have Trader Joe's. :( Boo hoo for me. Whenever we get to Washington state I try to race in and stock up. So much goodness in that place.
