Rolls for My Rolls

I haven't done one bit of baking for the Christmas Season. I know me...and I could easily gain weight during this time of year IF the goods are available. I have zero ability to resist and can justify or ignore just about any indulgence.

We finished up school for the calendar year, yesterday. Essentially, we have two days of "flux" until the official shin-dig on Christmas day. I'm down to one daycare sweetie this time of year, and his Mom has tomorrow off. So I figured that today would be a great day to do some...

BAKING!!

Think I'll try my hand at some Parker House Rolls - my great grandma was pretty good at those. A few sugar cookies couldn't hurt either. ;o) Everyone can put something in the bowl, and after nap time, we can roll, cut and bake.

And eat.

I have speed work on the schedule for today, hopefully that will burn off the rolls and cookies. I've decided that sugar and simple carbs are the enemy and need to be vanquished from my diet. I'll get right on that, after the new year. Having my long run day be my "free carb" day should make it a little easier to stick with. I hope.

  1. You are so awesome to be cooking! I cooked nothing this year. Luckily my daughter is a culinary artiste and took care of it. =D Merry Christmas!
