OT-- am I an idiot?
« on: December 10, 2011, 09:08:20 PM »
Today, I spent my post-guitar lesson day making fudge, cookies, and banana bread.  A ton of it. And I have more to do tomorrow. Am I an idiot, or do people still appreciate homemade baked goods?

I appreciate home baking, and I love bananna bread! One of my fondest memories from childhood was helping my Mum and Sister's bake all sorts of stuff at Christmas time, I just wish I had more time to dedicate to it but I still bake now and then when the notion takes me [:)]

Do you have fun making the goodies or is it nothing more than a drudgery for you that others expect?

Do others enjoy your goodies?

Hmmmm....really it doesn't matter what the answer to question #2 is so long as you have FUN and ENJOY making the cookies.  If it's nothing more than an expected drudge that gives you nothing but a tired and aching bod.....then I guess an are you nuts? tag may apply.  [;)][;)]

CB, I love eating them and I enjoy making them too.  I'm the cook in the house, so it usually ends up being up to me anyway.  As long as you're enjoying the work, that's its own reward.  Its icing on the cake if everyone enjoys what you make too.[:)]

Oh how I miss those Christmassy baking smells penetrating every cubic inch of space!  No CB, you are not an idiot, it would take an idiot to not appreciate this marvelous part of Christmas tradition!  Shiner's a lucky guy!

You guys are sweet. [:I]

I made the mistake a couple of years ago of taking leftovers from my Xmas goodie baskets for my counties up to the office... And my guitar teacher... Etc... And before long it got overwhelming, a bit.

I quit two batches of butterscotch fudge short.

I quit to make a calzone and enjoy my evening doing NOTHING... [:D][:D][:D]
