Was talking to MiHwa, our DIL, today. We have plans to bake lots of cookies when she and Mark come to visit.
When the sons were young, we always baked sugar cookies and decorated them. One year I made a double batch of dough (lots!!!) so each would have lots to work with. We just started rolling the dough when friends called asking if they wanted to go tobogganing. Ok, Mom now made the cookies!
Also, think of Mom at Christmas. She would make an armies worth of cookies, cakes and squares. Each of her 3 got a loaded deli tray of goodies. Bless your heart, Mom!
