This one might be a little scary. The compost bucket gets filled and emptied once a day with what ever scraps there are left. I must say my chickens love me.
I started with the almond cakes as I could double the recipe and they could cook for 50 minutes while I assembled the other dough. So after I had them in the oven, I made up a batch of Peppekakkor( a flat ginger cookie that will be rolled out, cut and decorated) this is my favorite cookie. I also did a batch of ginger rounds which is a cookie that is made into a ball and then baked and dipped in chocolate, much like German lebkucken. I also made up a batch of Kokkokasser a refrigerator sliced cookie.
I am happy to say that I started a little after 7 p.m. and a little before 9p.m. the kitchen was spotless.
Do you see this open cupboard? That is points off. Oh and the open jar of molasses? Points off? Dirty counter? Contaminate,points off? I don't think I will ever learn. I just need a keeper.
I guess my mind is just onto the next thing and I figure if I will need an ingredient again it should just stay out and open. Right? If I constantly wiped the counters they wold be wet and then where could I flop things, like my cell phone and diet coke? If you could see the condition of my recipe cards (or I should say mom's) you would be shocked. But that is just me. I am a work in progress mess.
I am going to run pick up the great nephews and take them to get Sunday dress shoes. Why do they grow so fast? Little monkeys become big monkeys. They will of course be starving so we will stop for a burger and then to the shoe store. I hope to be home a little after 7.
I would like to get Sucra citron kasse (lemon sugar cookies) and Swedish sour cream cookie doughs done tonight and put in the fridge. The other cookies are made on irons or the dough must not be refrigerated. So if I can get all these in the fridge than I can lay out my parchment paper and start baking. I will do the ball cookies together and then the rolled and cut cookies. The sliced refrigerator cookies go very fast.
I also need to take the ingredients for the meatballs out of the freezer to thaw. I am careful about meats. So not quite as messy:)
I have 9 hems to do today and I want to get started on a wedding dress alteration. I must also run to the store for real margarine and Albertsons has butter 1.99 limit one. I will go back several times.
One of the stores was advertising butter on sale for $3.49. I laughed. Really?
Yesterday I paid the house payment and added $300.00 of the extra $1000.00 I will try and pay this month. Anything above that will go to Christmas. It was a very enjoyable, rather relaxing day for me.
I am still suffering the side affects of the new medication. I really dislike the constant headaches. Like my head is in a vice or there is a tight rubber band around it all the time. Sometimes it makes me queasy. I hope it passes soon, not liking it one bit.
Tomorrow is pig day! I am excited to see how much I saved this year!
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
