This post is brought to you from Idaho! Our trip is going swimmingly, and I am snapping many pictures to share with you.
But first, I have to say how much I am loving your comments on my Ann Clark giveaway. The things you do with cookie cutters and the cookies you make and eat have me inspired. I am thinking of launching a full-on kitchen experiment to find a good chocolate sugar cookie recipe. It is going on my must-do list along with making this skirt, mussels, and artisan bread (I updated the post on making these magnificent loaves with a few details you may need if you’re missing the book). I’d better get busy.
But first, something I promised long ago. Remember when I shared every last thing in my gift and wrapping closet? I told you I like to keep $5 and $10 gifts on hand to mix and match as gift emergencies require. Well, here are a few favorites (with more to come). Do you have any favorite emergency gifts? I’d love to hear.
A ball on a band. Kids will be busy outside for hours, making this a good gift for mom too.
The bilibo mini.
Bath crayons,for little ones whose best ideas come in the tub.
Lollipops! Really, if you’re going to eat pure sugar, isn’t this the way to do it?
Binoculars. Of course.
Brain food. Fun for hours.
