It is snowing! I am torn between childlike enthusiasm and the desperate hope that it will turn to rain soon because tonight is the night we have tickets to the Revels
. The Revels are my favorite thing that we do outside our house during the holiday season and if we can't go because of snow, I will be so sad. It is supposed to turn to rain later though, so fingers crossed. I took today off because of the Revels, so at least I don't have to drive in the snow.
Today is cookie day. Mom is making dough for the sugar cookies and gingerbread, and later I am going to make lemon crinkle cookies
, because it seems to me that yellow lemony cookies are appropriate for the solstice. So they will be my Yule cookies. Except I am not going to roll them in powdered sugar (because I don't like powdered sugar) but am instead going to mix together all the different colors of sparkly sugar we have in the house and roll them in that. So my Yule cookies will be multicolored! Everyone loves sparkly and multicolored!
Also, I recently found a recipe for bacon jam empanadas
. That is amazing
. I mean, bacon jam by itself would be a thing that I would have to make, but I am ridiculously excited about pretty much any recipe that involves meat wrapped in a pastry crust. So I have to make those as well, though not today. I think those are going to wait for the weekend. I will let you know how it goes.
Oh, hooray - it looks like it stopped snowing!
