Since I am now eating gluten free, due to the discovery of a pesky gluten intolerance, and there aren’t any local gluten free bakeries, we had to bake all our own Christmas treats this year. Tonight, I baked brownies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and blueberry muffins. We won’t know how they taste until Christmas Day, but they sure SMELL good.
I work tomorrow, but the husband has the day off. We will start the morning with our Annual Christmas Eve tradition: breakfast at a random diner before work, where we’ll leave a huge tip for our unsuspecting wait person. Then hubby will drop me at work, but he’s coming back to have lunch with me. It remains to be seen if I’ll return to work or just head home after…either way, I look forward to a quiet Eve at home with the decorations aglow, cuddling with the hubby and the dogs, watching our favorite holiday specials, having cocktails and wondering if Santa will bring us anything while we sleep.
I’ll leave him out some milk and a gluten free cookie, just in case.
