How to make cookie dough from scratch - Consumer reports slow cooker reviews - Download david cook permanent
Okay. So, for 14 years now, I have over various times attempted to introduce small family rituals from MY family into the in-laws family. All have met with rejection. I know this sounds crazy, but all I am really asking for is one small ritual (either from my family or even a brand new one) that is well, mine. Something small that is my part of the holiday season (or really, even part of one of the big four-Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas,or New Years). For heaven's sake, I married into the family, and they really don't have super-strong traditions, is it too much to ask to include one little thing for the poor girl who is 2000 miles away from her clan? FOR EXAMPLE: Attempted: My Aunt Linda's "divided" eggs at East (LOL, Aunt Linda never could spell): rejected the first year. Christmas Sugar cookies (HUGE Christmas thing in my family--I made cookies and icing from scratch): tried at least twice, ignored. Christmas Morning cinnamon rolls (made by me, prepared bread dough rolls, icing by scratch): tried at least twice, ignored. Again,a HUGE tradition in my family. Christmas Eve/Day/ETC (whenever the fam celebrates Christmas) movie, paid for by me: tried once, failed any time after that Halloween pumpkin seeds: unmitgated disaster, don't even ask. New Years' Eve? Sometimes Games and Alcohol (dear lord, help me); tried to declare it an evening for just Carter and me with various activities--ALL failed miserably (I guess I should note that apparently, heavy drinking and board games are a family tradition on New Years. It should be noted that this evening generally ends up in fighting over stuff that happened 40 years ago and no one really cares about (EX: who melted whose toys in the Betty Crocker oven, etc). In fact, the only holiday tradition that has taken root at ALL (because generally in the in-laws household, there ARE no traditons--some years, there's a tree, some not. Sometimes we do Chaunnakah (I misspelled that, I know LOL), some not, some years Christmas is on Christmas, sometimes it's a week later, etc, etc) are the goddamned mother f&cking Chrismas socks that--you guessed it--I knit (Carter? he does nothing for Christmas. It's MY job do do all the family gifts--mine and his--make sure they're shipped on time, wrap, buy, choose, etc--ALL MY JOB). I wanna make this clear, here. My younger brothers have grown from LITTLE boys to young MEN and I haven't been there. I have a 10 yo niece I have NEVER MET. I am sad. I am lonely. I am isolated from my family. Anyway, after 14 years of MY family and MY family's traditions (or even my attempts to create a new one) being shunted aside and irrelevant. . .BOYS AND GIRLS, I FUCKING GIVE UP. You read that right. I GIVE UP. I knit the goddamned Christmas socks, I will wrap them and send them off (er, I DO work in a shipping place), but I can't do it anymore. I am tired of the fake cheer, and pretending that the little things of my childhood don't matter. I am tired of being guilted into spending more that I can afford on people who won't give me ONE OR TWO LOUSY HOURS OF THE YEAR to observe even what they consider fuckin' stupid ritual for the holidays. Is it so much to ask that I want to gather THREE people together to put stupid frosting on stupid homemade cookies for a half an hour ONE time a year so I don't feel quite so sad about my family being 2000 miles away? To eat my aunts "divided" eggs on Easter instead of "deviled" (honest to god people, they're just deviled eggs from a slightly different recipe) ONE time per year without complaint (for the love of all that his holy, they don't even have to EAT them, just not complain!)? Or even just go and see a damned movie at some point in December without begging off? I swear to GOD, all I am asking for (and HAVE asked for) over the past DECADE is one little ritual to make the ONE AND ONLY displaced inlaw feel just a little less lonely, displaced, and pariah-esqe. I have not been pushy (maybe I should have); just suggesting that this or that might make a nice family tradition Anyhow. . . I GIVE UP. I don't think there is anything I can do to make these people understand what one tiny ritual will mean to me. Hubby doesn't get it; tonight ended with sobbing over this issue (as it has for the past 5 years), swearing he will make sure that "the family knows this is IMPORTANT to Meg". . . . and a lack of knowledge that I have broken down in tears over this every December a minimum of 3 times every year for. . .oh, probably the past 10 years. Honest, I am NOT a high-strung, high-maintance person. If I could get a little acknowledgement from the hubby that I AM REALLY UNHAPPY, and a REAL promise that i could go visit my family ('cause every year about this time, Carter promise that NEXT year we'll spend Christmas with MY family. . . ), I'd be a happy annoying little elf this time of year. But, neither of those things seems likely, and combined with my lack ofSnicker Doodles
I was making snicker doodles for some people in my class and decided that I should take a picture because not everyone makes snicker doodles from scratch so they don’t know how it’s done -- now you do! Lol Mix ingredients together and refrigerate dough. Turn the oven on to 400 degrees F, and then roll the dough into balls and place them into a bowl filled with cinnamon sugar. Roll balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture until covered completely, then place on cookie sheet. They bake for 8.5 min.
