Wait... I started this post to talk about what I was going to make today. Here's what I should be doing instead of blogging:
- 6 pie crusts for 3 pies (sugar, apple and the tourtière for our réveillon dinner tonight)
- An enormous batch of pain-in-the-ass sugar cookies (that's not the actual recipe name, it's just that they are an actual pain to cut out and frost)
- Bacon jam
- Make a triple batch of egg nog
- Cinnamon rolls for our traditional Christmas breakfast.
If you say to yourself "Hey, Karen, that's only 5 things, it should only take you a couple of hours!", I'll respectfully invite you to bite me because, add to this list that I'm a mother on Xmas Eve which means I also have to clean, do laundry, pack bags for our trip to Montreal tomorrow, get Audrey's bangs trimmed and still wrap presents. So I'm predicting a 3 hour "sleep" tonight in a pile of tape and wrapping paper, aided by 4 or 5 glasses of butterscotch schnapps laden egg nog.
And you wonder why I prefer to sit here blogging instead of getting right on this? So what are your plans for today?
