Ginnie BakerIt’s just two days before Christmas and I’m almost ready for the big day!

The annual Audubon Bird County day was on Saturday and I had a good count even though it was warm for a December day and no snow. Bad weather really brings the birds flocking in to the feeders.

I baked a big batch of cookies to take to the Bellville police officers. I do volunteer PR work for the department and I always say “Merry Christmas” to the officers, thanking them for the job they do for all of us.

I also baked an old favorite, Hobo Bread. It’s like a Boston Brown Bread but on the sweet side. It’s easy to make and bakes in small coffee cans.

Ginnie, baking always takes on a new dimension during the holidays. Favorite recipes are brought out and baked with some being the only time of the year enjoyed. I'm not much of a baker but many of my friends are which gives me much pleasure to sample their traditional holiday goodies. I never go without many different kinds of holiday candies and cookies. ***** Have a great post Christmas day.
