Whew! I'm almost done. I was blessed with a long-napping baby, so I was able to complete most of the baking by dinnertime. All this counterspace is luxurious after last year's baking. I had so much trouble with consistency, though--the very same batter would bake high and firm sometimes, soft and fallen the next, not to mention the two pans which came out only as "muffin tops." I saved those in a Ziploc. What do you think? Gingerbread trifle for Christmas eve?
God give me the strength to bake these last few batches without yelling at my family or having an accident. Let me be a credit to my husband at his workplace. Let him be respected at the gates. AMEN!
