12.30.09 = Traditions – Baking
Cookies, bread, cake, candy….this time of year is a diet killer! No wonder we all swear we are going on diets the first of the year! But through the years what I have discovered is that, it’s not just about the end result, it’s about the process and the memories you create during that process. Over the years my sisters and I have gotten together to bake Potica bread. Sure, everyone loves the end result but it’s the fun memories of getting together that we remember most; the flour fight we had one year; the year we drank a little too much Captain Morgan; the year Kim had kidney stones and somehow managed to have the Doctor release her from the hospital…. We all have a job to do in the process of this bread making and when one of us is missing the others just stand around going, “I don’t know, Kelly always does that part.” Great times and memories with my best friends; my sisters. I love you Kelly, Kim and you too Kasey!
“In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips!” Unknown (but it sounds like something I’ve said before.)
