Kinley and I got our three errands finished and got home to start the task of cooking and baking. I like to pretend that I enjoy cooking, and I really do, but I get so nervous that what I make won't be liked by others. Richie always enjoys what I cook, so I need to learn to just chillax on that.
We made homemade orange cranberry sauce, pureed butternut squash and then toffee cookies. I worked my tush off! But I really enjoyed it. I had the Christmas music channel on the TV and it was just nice. Me and my baby girl and the kitchen... I look forward to the days that she can hop on the counter and help.
The cranberries, zest, OJ and brown sugar. All in it's yumminess.
The start to the toffee cookies. Yes, those are saltines.
My assistant is keeping the lids in order.
Boiling now....and will be for the next several hours. Smells so good.
Tell me you don't want one....really.
