Your virtual Advent Calendar
Apparently too much singing didn’t give me a sore throat, afterall.
It’s called a cold, Cara.
(that’s a great word, by the way).
I’ve been struggling with not feeling achy and exhausted this weekend.
So far, the cold has the lead.
But in my tired state,
I will still find the energy to sing with gusto.
It’s what I was born to do.
I have fond memories of eating
from my childhood.
of course I do.
In particular, I especially loved eating Snickerdoodles.
But not just any kind–
it was a tradition while my mom, sister and I were at the mall
that we would stop by Mrs. Fields
and pick out several of our favorite cookies
and eat them to refuel before we passed out from too much shopping.
(That should never happen, not on my watch!)
I was always fond of the cinnamon and sugar cookies
because of their chewy texture.
None of this crispy cookie business.
I wanted my cookies to melt in my mouth.
So when Brooke had Snickerdoodles on the
“12 Days of Christmas Cookies” recipe list,
I felt swept away into my childhood immediately.
The only thing missing was a shopping spree.
Who wants to take me?
