This might be a little late to post, but since we are still in the midst of all of these winter storms and harsh cold winter weather, I decided my “day during Juno” is still apropo. Last week, here in New York and in a lot of other areas as well, there was a major panic over the weather forecast (as there usually is when a big Blizzard is expected). Meteorologists were predicting this to be “record amounts of snow”. You can imagine the mayhem going on here. The mayor of New York was urging people to work from home the day BEFORE the storm to keep as many people off the roads as possible when the snow would start to fall. Mass transit was halted. People were rushing to all supermarkets to stock up on enough food for the big 2-3 day hibernation while the snow would come “pouring” down. Of course, the record storm did not happen, and Juno would go down in the books as just another would-be potential snow storm of the century.
So, you want to know what I did at home the one day that I did not go out during Juno? What else to warm the house and fill the yummy bellies? I baked!
My kids are a bit spoiled. Since they have a mom that loves to bake, I usually send them with my baked goods to school as a snack instead of the store bought cookies, little bites, brownies, etc. Their friends usually drool over their homemade treats and beg for my daughters to share some with them. It is a good thing that I know how coveted my “snacks” have become in their school, so I always make sure to send them with a little “extra” so there is enough for them, and some to spare for their friends.
This is what I baked during Juno (all nut free):
Chocolate chip brownie brittle
Oatmeal dried cherry, white chip, chocolate chunk cookies
“Zebra” (Crinkle) Cookies
Stay tuned for recipes to be posted on future posts!
