Bake Cookies Day!

Always on December 18th, today is “Bake Cookies Day”!!!  And it couldn’t come at a better time!  Arriving amidst the major December holidays this day serves as a reminder to bake holiday cookies, if you haven’t done so already.

Everyone, no matter your age, can and should celebrate this day by baking their favorite cookies. Make a party of it, and bake cookies in groups with family, friends, kids and grandkids. Don’t stop at baking just one kind of cookies.Plan to bake a number of cookies. Try a new recipe, or two, or three, or….

If you bake more than you can eat, good for you! Wrap up gift trays filled with cookies for friends and neighbors. Most cookies freeze well, too.

On another note, I couldn’t find a “Eat Cookies Day”, which in my opinion should be tomorrow…but maybe eating cookies is an everyday thing and so no one wanted to limit the eating of the cookies to just one day!

Clean Out

Today is National Clean Out Your Fridge Day ~ I wish it fell closer to our trash day (Tuesdays for us) but what a great time to look at the expiration dates of all of that stuff in your refrigerator and decide whether or not you feel lucky! And if no date is stamped on the container, use the sniff test! Remember, while it started out as apple juice a few months ago, fermented cider is not the best choice for your children or grandchildren! Or is it???
