82 days to go till Christmas. This is what woke me up this morning. Am I to panic? Even as my father emailed that he is sending his gift for his beloved grand child, I cannot help but think that I don’t have that much time left to do my Christmas shopping. So long to the former plan that we will do it real early this year.
Although I can very much catch some more items on sale still, I might not be able to enjoy the whole idea of gift wrapping and stuff. I am actually considering just baking chocolate chips and stack them in these pretty recyclable containers that recipients could make use of when the cookies ran out. 🙂
For those who will receive those cookies, be assured that I am the most careful baker. You won’t believe what the hubby and I witnessed in Auntie Anne’s Pretzel shop in Glorietta. This lady who was handling the dough with her bare hands is also the one handling the cash register! Could you imagine!?! Okay, that deserves an entry of its own. Besides, I never touch my dough mixture with my bare hands. All is done with the use of spatula, whisk wand and spoon. That’s about it.
Now, the quest is on for those trendy lil cookie jars. The design and size should just be right. An air tight container would be ideal- it will keep the cookies fresh. This would be a lesser task than to go buy a particular stuff for each person. 😀
