Chilly winds arrive

Yesterday the temp was 80 degrees, sunshine and calm breezes; today we awoke to the return of the chill, the strong winds and a promise of a frigid start to the work week.  But, before we head into the promise of a cold January, it is time to take an inventory, and with that, attack some of  the clutter that comes from the hustle and bustle of the much too hectic holiday season.

I opened the baking cabinet and saw all the remains of Christmas, and New Years, not yet spent.  It lay there before me;  the chocolate bar, bittersweet and smoldering, those confectioners and brown sugars begging use, and all those lovely and dear spices.  This is when I realized Valentines and Mardis Gras celebrations sit upon my baking horizons and, that sweet prize in February when the kids come to visit.  ‘Tis lucky for me that the expiration dates follow later, but who am I kidding?  If I take the time and effort, the last thing I’d do is use the discount of an expired treasure. 

I never bake for the enemy.
