How to reduce the normal pre-Christmas stress? Well, I’ve had the clever idea — since I haven’t had time for homemade cookies — to buy a package of dough at the supermarket so that I would at least bake the cookies myself. Sounds like a good plan? Well, I spent the afternoon cutting out cookies, shoving four backing-tray loads of cookies into the oven, and then decorating the cookies. The cookie-decoration ended up looking rather brilliant and professional and wonderful (if I may say so).
… the cookies themselves taste like crap.
So now my kitchen is filled with the usual cookie-baking smell that always makes me feel sick after a while, my tee-shirt is stenched with the cookie-baking scent, and I’ve got four baking-tray loads of cookies that look brilliant but don’t taste it.
Oh yes, and I wasted a whole afternoon for a useless cookie-baking-spree.
Somebody please hit me over the head.
