I’m not the neatest person in the world. I’m probably the messiest person I know. Today I made 14 dozen hot tamales and then I started a batch of springerle cookies. When I finished with all the cooking and looked at my kitchen, I almost ran away from home.
What a mess . . but it’s worse in other areas of the kitchen.
This is when I wish I had someone to come behind me and clean my messes.
Every square inch was a disaster!
For a brief moment, I thought . . I’m too tired. I’ll clean it later. But, I knew if I sat down, I’d never get up and finish it. So, I started with this corner.
That didn’t take long!
This is the section of the countertop where I work most all the time . . unless this area is already full of clutter and mess and then I move on to another section. But now it’s clean too.
Even the stove is sparkling . . buttons taken off and cleaned. The pot sitting there is going to be used for dinner so I just left it there after I washed it.
8 dozen hot tamales delivered to Vince’s co-workers. 6 dozen in my freezer.
I hadn’t planned on making springerle cookies but when Vince was home at lunch, he asked if I wasn’t going to make them and I said I didn’t have time. He looked at me like . . what do you do all day? So, I made them . . darn it!
Can you see the designs? They’re so cute . . and they taste so good! They sit out overnight and get baked tomorrow. I love these cookies! I love all cookies . . except chocolate! 🙂
