Gingerbread Cookies will infuse your home with the smell of Christmas. Just a couple of ingredients and a couple of minutes to make!
So there’s been silence from our part in the past couple of days. I wish to say it was due to Christmas holidays and gathering with the family… because this would have been just so much better than reality. In reality, on Thursday evening I finished with work, sent out the last email and was looking forward to Friday because I took a day off from work. And just when I sent out the last email… I suddenly didn’t feel so good anymore. As the evening progressed and turned into Friday morning it became obvious, that I have fallen ill. I will not bore you with unpleasant details, but there was a lot of sneezing and coughing involved, as well as a high temperature and runny nose. Saturday and Sunday were even worse. On Monday I could barely speak anymore and we were discussing a visit to the doctor. I don’t usually go to the doctor for things like a severe cold or influenza, as I firmly believe leaving the house in such a miserable state, driving for an hour to the doctor and then the wait in the waiting room would do me much worse than if I simply remain on bed rest. So I drank my share of honeyed tea and ate chicken soup and was on a complete bed, well, couch rest. It was horrible waking up every 2 hours in the night to cough, sneeze repeatedly and the like, but even worse…. we fear it now may be Mitja’s turn.
So we’ve been keeping indoors and cultivating germs in our house for the past few days and it was miserable, especially because outdoor the days are simply splendid with plenty of sunshine, which is a bit unusual for this time. So much for nice holidays.
Lucky for us, by the time illness stroke, we have already baked our share of Christmas cookies, including these delicious, though a bit crooked, Gingerbread Cookies, to keep us company in our miserable times.
Today is the first day that I am feeling a bit better and on the road to recovery and this is also the last Christmas recipe for this year. I think we can safely say there was more than enough indulging and it’s time for some healthier and more nutritious food again 🙂
