So, I haven’t gotten my boss a Christmas present yet.
If you’re a regular Carina Press blog reader, or if you follow Angela on Twitter (@angelajames), you will know that she lives in the U.S. And you might know that the office where most of the Carina Press staff work is in Toronto, Canada. So at Christmas this year, we put together a box of presents and shipped it across the border before the holidays. I had planned to give Angela a tin of homemade Christmas cookies, because I love baking and I am good at it. (Ahem, no ego here, hahaha.) Plus, I tweet about baking a lot and it’s kind of cruel not to share.
The problem comes when you try to ship homemade food over the border. It’s just too much of a hassle. So, I thought, that’s fine, you can reserve a bunch of cookies in the freezer and bring them out when you see Angela in January.
You can probably guess what happened next. I forgot. I gave most of the baking away and left the rest with my family when I came back to Toronto after the holidays. And now I’m left with a choice: bake another batch of Christmas cookies even though Christmas is long over, or do something completely different and hope she doesn’t care that they’re not the same delicious variety of cookies that everyone else got at Christmas.
I’ll probably do the Christmas cookies, because come on, Christmas cookies are delicious no matter what time of year it is. And there are bound to be some left over for me to eat, right? Hey, maybe I will even put on Christmas music to get in the January-mas spirit.
Any bakers out there? Are you all baked out over the holidays, or are you ready to get started again?
[P.S.: Hi, Angela. Guess what you're getting for belated Christmas?!]
