No apologies, no excuses, thank you Madame Child. It’s January 19th & after quite some time, Sweet Hearth is back in action. Happy 2011! December was a blur of red & green M&Ms, car rides with Betty White (my car, not the actress, though the two are not entirely dissimilar) & Mariah Carey, & snowsnowsnow. We just got dumped on again last week, & then again yesterday, & now it’s nothing but cold rain. But I’m not complaining.
I considered digging Betty White (the actress) out of her igloo (just kidding), before the snow-turned-freezing rain formed an impenetrable force field of ice that will last until Spring, but then I reconsidered, because what better way to break in the 2011 Sweet Hearth than to make a back-to-the-basics-with-a-twist salted butter chocolate chip cookie?
There is no better way, of course. Trust me. Sure beats shoveling snow.
