I had been wanting to bake chocolate chip cookies for the better part of the past week.
This afternoon I finally made a half a batch of gluten free dairy free cookies, and they turned out great.
Wanting cookies is definitely a sign that I am feeling better. While this cold is taking it’s sweet time to fully go away, I am definitely improving.
Winter is time of year when Cold and Flu season is at it’s peak. Over I started coming down with my first cold of the season on New Years, and it had cleared up in a week, then I had a busy weekend and had caught another cold along the line and have been sick with that for a week and a half now.
Between having been laid off from the seasonal job I had for the holidays, being sick, and getting older it has given me a chance to reevaluate my long term goals for my life.
What I know is that the City life isn’t for me, and I want to continue doing more of the Homemaking and Homesteading / urban Homesteading stuff, I want to be able to spend more time writing posts for this blog and having content to write about.
I would love to settle down, get married, have a home of my own, have a family of my own. I would love to live I some property where I could have a good size garden, raise some chickens (layers and meat chickens), maybe some pigs and goats. I also would love to be able to be canning each summer and put up meat for the winter.
Last night I had decided to mix up a batch of gluten free vegan shortbread cookies. They turned out amazing, and I had used my Scottish Thistle cookie stamp.
I enjoy cooking and baking. I enjoy being out in the kitchen and making things that taste good.
