I've been baking lots and lots of sugar cookies the last couple of weeks. I prefer gingerbread, but the kids are addicted to these buttery little men, cut with my tiny gingerbread boy cookie cutter. They are difficult to decorate, but fun to eat.
I baked bread last weekend, for the first time in the new oven, and it was so well received you would have thought I had spun gold. Such a simple thing--flour, water, yeast, a little sugar--and yet so satisfying. We each had a buttered slice when it was warm from the over. Later, I served the rest of the loaf with soup for dinner.
