She’s sending Cookies! My sister is sending COOKIES! I am so excited. One of my favorite holiday traditions is Christmas cookies. My mom had this great recipe for no-bake fudge-oatmeal cookies, I can’t make them – no talent – but my sister makes them great every time. Last night she called to find out where I might like my cookies sent. Life is good.
Now I know you are thinking, why can’t you make these? I have no idea, I’ve tried and tried, but it’s kind of like Jello for me, I can’t make that either. I tell people I’m Jello challenged, because it’s true. Jello has a special place in my heart, I’ve only ever had it at my mom’s house, so I associate it with her memory.
I’m a pretty good cook, most days, or at least the days that I have a kitchen to cook in. I make killer fish tacos, a Thanksgiving dinner to write home about and Jambalaya to die for. Most days we live in our RV, my kitchen is non-existent , we have cupboards to hold the dishes, pots and pans and a small sink, but nothing else. I have no refrigerator, I have no oven, but I can make some killer meals. I have a cooler and a Camp Chef. The Camp Chef we set up outside when we park, it has two burners hooked to a propane tank. I can fix just about anything on it. Now, it is not without challenges, but one of the things we discovered is that everything we eat has to be fresh. No boxed anything for us, it just doesn’t work on a Camp Chef and with only a cooler to keep things in, I have to buy fresh. Since I have a great set of knives and a cutting board or two, everything comes from the produce and meat section. It’s an awesome way to live and eat. But man do I miss my sister’s cookies! Merry Christmas to me!
