Ahhh, holiday time. It's here! A and I are so looking forward to eating delicious food, ice skating, watching movies, baking cookies and taking walks.
I leave you with a yummy ginger cookie recipe from the November/December Vegetarian Times. Until next year!
3/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1/4 c crystallized ginger, chopped
1 tbs. blackstrap molasses
1 tbs. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
4.5 tbs. lime or lemon juice
3 c confectioner's sugar

+ Drop spoonfuls of dough, 1" apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool 3 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
