Christmas Cookies, Kendall Culinary …. and Jane !
The holidays are upon us, Christmas being the one I love and celebrate. Christmas is also a time to look thru the crystal with the eyes of a child. The excitement of Old St Nick with bags and bags of toys for all. But what is the perfect gift ? the sled, the scarf, the outfit, the ring ? No, the true gift is a memory to last a lifetime… The excitement in the eyes of the gift giver, watching with intent to catch the delight on the face of the receiver. The smile, the giggle, the all out laughter. Well, that was my gift to my mother Jane this year. Jane is the richest person I know, rich with the love of family and friends. So, my gift to my mother was a new memory … Kendall College Culinary School….we baked Christmas Cookies ! Now you see, ‘cook’ is a four letter word to Jane. Utter it once, and she will let you know. It may have been 20 years since she has purchased sugar, heck who knows, maybe she never has ! So, if you can, try to visualize the fun we had. So much fun, that at one point I had to leave the room, fast !
