I had to go to the grocery store a second time today after work because I always forget my list when I go to the store. Well, I forget things when I go to the store without my list. Therefore, if I forgot something again, we are not having it! OK. Fine. I will go back, but I will stomp my feet doing it. Being out among all the masses of people almost blew my fuse. My road rage was on point.
Today I am going to congratulate myself and celebrate for not cussing at anyone from inside my car. Wine Wednesday for me! I am treating myself to a mimosa with cranberries and pomegranate…or several.
Tomorrow I am going to get a few things done at work and then get a quick visit out to the farm to see all the horses…possibly fit in a ride. Can I just bring them back and hide them in the back yard???
I have finished my gift shopping and wrapping. I usually get great joy out of wrapping presents, but this year it just is not the same.
I am hoping that the cooking and baking will give me the final kick in the bum to get into the spirit. Speaking of cooking and baking…here is what I am doing for our Christmas celebrations!
1. Cranberry sauce for Christmas Day. I am going to make that right now and will add a green pepper this time for some intrigue.
2. Peppermint cake for Friday dinner dessert when my dad’s side of the family gets together. I have never made this one before and I am excited! This picture is from the site.
3. Pumpkin bread for my farrier. He is coming out the day after Christmas to do everyone’s hooves. This is a tried and true family recipe that we make all year long.
4. Pomegranate cake for Christmas Day. I love this cake. I made it for one of our celebrations last year and I have to do it again. You could easily use any fruit as opposed to pomegranate, but the pomegranate is really good. The picture is from the site. I can not find the pic from last year’s cake.
