You may be familiar with "The Freshman 10." You know, the ten pounds you gain at the dining hall freshman year of college.
Well, we here at The Little Red Hen have discovered "The Holiday Ten." That is the ten pounds gained from the time school is out for winter break until the new year. This is a list of what we have baked and consumed here since winter break started.
peach blueberry pie
strawberry rhubarb pie
chocolate pound cake
banana bread (twice)
raisin/currant filled cookies
double chocolate muffins
Add to that the bag of hershey's truffle kisses purchased for making chocolate kiss cookies but eaten before the cookies were made... and a couple of bags of holiday m and m's for the Santa candy bowl - well it can't just sit there EMPTY can it?
Today, I have made a batch of chocolate chip pumpkin muffins. B is making apricot filled cookies.
M has requested brownies.
And B told me that I need to make ginger bread cookies with P.
I think it's time to go for our afternoon stroll.
