Day 350: GingerBread Cookies

Maybe a little too much ginger. I may be the only one who likes eating these :)



Just a view out our windows. . . this does not even begin to capture the dominance of the blizzard out there! I read today that we live like kings. . . that with indoor heating, we can live a comfortable life even in the midst of life-threatening conditions, something completely out of reach of most of the people on the planet even now, and certainly in the recent past. Indoor heating AND internet connection!

Love the snow and the gingerbread. However...I cannot for the LIFE of me get gingerbread to work when I make it, although I do love it so.

I don't know what looks more delicious...the cookies or the snow. I don't know what it is about snow, but it always makes me want to cook!

The snow looks so beautiful, fluffy, and white. We have get to get a nice storm like that here in Maine.

My dd is literally screaming about your cookies- she wants them so badly! LOL! That snow out the windows does look ominous, thank goodness you were indoors! I love that bit of perspective on just how good we have it nowadays, we take it for granted but we are very pampered when you really think about it!

Gorgeous GORGEOUS shot out the window.

Yummy looking cookies! Do you have a recipe to share? I promised Annie we could make some this week, but I've never made any. We like a lot of ginger in this house. :)

Michelle said...

Brrrrr!!! Definitely looks like indoors with the heating is the place to be. The cookies look yummy too.

They look yummy. I tasted ginger bread cookies for the first time this week. I just wanted to see if I could make them,and they tasted good. Its snowing here to no where near as much as yours.

Ooohhh...those cookies are making me very hungry for gingerbread cookies! They are the perfect thing to eat during a blizzard!

Jeanne said...

Great cookie photo! They look yummy! As for the other photo, it is very beautiful to look at, but I definitely wouldn't want to be in the midst of the weather. I've been hearing about it on the news. 'Course, we are having our own arctic freeze in my neck of the woods...I like your scene better than mine, though!

Stay safe and warm!

The cookies look wonderful! Just remember ginger if very good for you.

We are having an ice storm this morning in Texas. It's going to be 70 on Friday so you still can't feel sorry for us.
