We need some Christmas around here. Yes, we had some snow but – snow on Halloween was/is not my idea of Christmas.
We don’t have the tree up nor do we have anything else up/out/on display. It’s terrible.
We’ll get there, hopefully this weekend.
Meanwhile, I’ve decided the h*** with it and I’m baking cookies this year. I haven’t made Christmas cookies since 2005. (Ummm, 2005, “You have diabetes…”) It sucks. There’s just the two of us so it’s not like I need to make tons and tons. Just enough so I can have a few, and remember the “old” days when eating a frosted sugar cookie didn’t involve math.
Is there a website where you can put in recipe ingredients and get a carb count? Or do I have to do the math? If there’s not one, would one you math whiz people develop one?
A favorite story. Many, many years ago when the boys were little and would help with the cookie cutting and frosting at Christmas, we had a rule that you could only snack on the broken cookies. My mother-in-law was visiting and there weren’t too many broken cookies to chomp on. So I took a tray of cooled, unfrosted cookies and dropped the tray on the table. They broke. The boys were delighted (so was I), the mother-in-law confirmed that I was nuts. I can still see the kids’ faces when I said, “Oops, guess we’ll have to eat those now!”
And I’m NOT going to use Splenda! So, there!
(Lab work will be done next week so A1c will be out of the way for 3 months…)
