Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and welcome to January 28th, 2013 …..

I had a great weekend and was especially grateful to be feeling better again.

I started the weekend by having coffee with one of my friends followed by the usual laundry and cleaning.

Alvin and I were able to take a nice long walk and then after supper I watched a movie and baked cookies.

I have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe on the planet.

It is so easy and they always turn out great.

You can add whatever you want in the way of extras like: raisins, cranberries, nuts etc.

I took some into the store and they were a hit.

Just wondering how many people bake these days especially with most grocery stores having a bakery.

I will always love homemade baking.

I remember whenever I would go to my Grandparents farm and the smell of my Grandma’s baking would waft through the air ……

I am certain that even the farm animals were licking their mouths from the scent.

She baked the most amazing items:  jelly rolls, fresh brown bread (even before the popularity of brown breads), all sorts of cookies, and cakes.  She made the best orange chiffon cake I have ever had the good pleasure to eat.

My Grandpa made fudge …. that was his speciality and it was yummy.

My Mom made fudge as well and it was great …. whenever the chance she made the best pumpkin tarts and angel food cakes.

It is so funny how food can invoke such wonderful memories …. I can see Grandma in the kitchen, Grandpa walking in the barnyard and my Mom smiling.

I hope that you have wonderful memories …. you never know what “a good brownie” will remind you of …….

Well time to go and finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Always dream and use your imagination …… it works for you.

Special Hello to: all those bakers ……

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
