It's been a long week
Our tree this year is light and airy, or as the nursery we bought it from said, "uncultured." So we have an uncultured tree. The ornaments hang freely, the fresh fir smell wafts from the branches, and it speaks to me of light and simplicity. I'm looking forward to quiet evenings of knitting or reading (or wrapping presents) accompanied by twinkling tree lights and a crackling fire.
We disagree over the best gingersnaps. I like the ones that actually snap, with a bit of crunch to them. He, and the children prefer the softer ones which we call Ginger Sparklers. I alternate between recipes, and I notice that it doesn't matter which one I make, they all disappear. And it's not me eating them all (in pairs.)
I hope to put up the recipe on my recipe blog today. (Edited to add, here's the link to the Ginger Snap recipe)
