Icing

Dough can be formed
it’s just sugar and flour
that needs to be warmed
with a little raw power

vanilla mixed in
plus butter (yum yum)
with a moppet’s grin
is where love comes from.

I'm going to bake now, as soon as I wipe the drool from my chin;)) I'll post a picture later so you will know I kept my word;) I enjoy this 'off the cuff' creation!

Sounds like sugar cookies in the making, except no eggs.

Just ordinary ingredients like sugar, flour and vanilla can be very yummy when served with love. Lovely message.

Shortbread, my fav, inspired by current rituals with my grandson, but also when I was the moppet helping my mom (as explained in todays post)

Baking rituals are always comforting to me. Thank you for sharing.

And I thank you for whipping up memories, precious and loved, of the days when my little ones step-stooled at the counter to help. Wondrous!

I baked today...but nothing I was very proud of, and certainly nothing picture-worthy:)It tastes good though..all that butter and sugar.

If you want the run-down on why I didn't bake it is on my 'rambling' blog Janet's Journal.

I think that's amazing if anyone can make a rhyming poem of his/her activity. This is a nice rhyme.

There's nothing that says home and love like cooking together, thanks my friends.
