Let the baking begin…

Dessert Goodness, originally uploaded by in2jazz.

I am ready for the holiday baking season when locals will host a baking contest as you can read in these news, halifax news, contest blog posts.  Although, it is a lot of work over these next few weeks, I look forward to this time of year. I have stocked up on all of my baking supplies. The sales have been decent but you have to be careful not too buy too much? How much brown and powdered sugar are you going to use after the holidays? Butter prices creep upward every year. I can remember when you could buy a pound of butter for $.79 around the holidays. I picked up 8 pounds of butter from Costco for about $2.00 per pound. That is about the best deal around plus I do not want to burn up a tank of gas to save a few pennies.
I am staying local for the holidays this year. Of course, my family was not happy about this decision but I really wanted to just take some days off from work, relax, and work on projects around the house. I will attend church on Thanksgiving morning and spend the rest of the day visiting friends that I have not seen in awhile. Good food, good family and friends, and good music are what make my holidays special. We all have so much to be thankful for.
Hope you and yours have a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

  1. Oy!! I think I gain a few pounds every time I stop by one of these posts. Hoping to make it out your way one of these holiday seasons to share in the good food, good music and great company.
