Tips to get ready for xmas
Buy/Build a gingerbread house
Pre-made cookies are not the only sugary good that define the Christmas season. Gingerbread houses also make for a fun family-bonding event. To clarify, I do not mean full-sized gingerbread houses. If you have the patience to attempt such a project and the self-control not to eat it along the way, then props to you, but I tend to go for the smaller, more manageable gingerbread structure. Even if the frosting does not mix right and the walls do not stay up for more than 2 seconds and in the end, you end up staring at a pile of gooey gingerbread panels that looks more like a stack of logs than an edible treat, you can say that you tried and thats all that matters.
