March arrives in five days and I thought it might be appropriate to put away the last of the Christmas decorations before we say goodbye to Winter. Hold on, hold on! It’s not like we still have the tree up or anything. Just, uh… the lights on the front of the house.
And a big ol’ Santa Claus cookie jar.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that the cookie jar has held only crumbs for the past month-and-a-half. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was being used as a receptacle for scrumptious, chocolately, gooey (D: all of the above) treats that I’d whipped up and then amazed you with.
But all that was left was the stale scent of last year’s holiday season. So I washed it, packed it up and put it into storage.
Does anybody have any good recipes for St. Patty’s Day treats? All this talk of Christmas cookies has got me thinking I should cook up some more holiday spirit. (And it takes a lot of advance thought on my part to get anything done before the holiday is passed.) Considering I’m not a big fan of corned beef and cabbage, I’m thinking something involving green sugar would be nice. 😉
