I find the older I get, the more joy I find in the holiday's. A fresh sip of holiday blend coffee. A home-cooked supper. A lovely treat. Maybe it's the fresh Texas breezes or the chilly nights. The chance to stand barefoot in the kitchen never alludes me on those pre-holiday nights. The same can be said for this past week. Each whisk of my spoon another memory made.
I still remember the first time I tried my hand at homemade peppermint anythin'. It was a creme cheese peppermint frostin'. I still have the broken hand mixer to show and a heck of a story to boot. But this time, yes this time was much more well received.
Grandma, always did love Nestle. From her milk to her bakin'. So, I suppose it was en-grained in me. I suppose at the holidays I did, too.
