New Year’s Eve can go in room 101. Halloween just needs to go back to Samhain.
I approve of everything in this comment except for the Cold Duck. I had to google it to discover it's a sweet red and white wine blend. Such things ought not be, but by the gods I could go for some baklava and I wish we'd import North American maple trees here to obtain less costly syrup. The love of tins is felt as well. Every confectionery tastes better when packaged in a pretty tin, with bonus points if some old-time imagery is imprinted upon it.Okay now we're talking. When I drank I drank Grey Goose around Christmas, but also around every other holliday and weekend, it wasn't because it tastes good though, for that I had Andre's Cold Duck. Because if you must drink, it must be birds, or things named after birds at least.
Now for food, backlava, fruit cake, and honey ham with maple syrup. Baked beans with bacon, grilled onions, and melted cheese chunks. And of course the cookies. Sugar cookies with decorative frosting goes well from October through Christmas. The colors change but the cookies stay the same.
Now we get into bought cookies, always buy them in tins because tin is magical and adds flavor. You can have your plastic packaged cookies. Also the fruitcake must be in a tin.
This year, my friend bought me a huge tin of cookies. Now if I could only fit them in my already meager calorie restricted diet. Nope. Why'd she do that to me? I can't eat them or throw them away so they sit there mocking me every time I pass, but it feels good to have them, so I thanked her.
The fall-spring also means nights below 55F and the mosquitoes can't come out to play anymore so I can do my morning walks. I had my first this morning since May 1st. Damn you global warming! We didn't have mosquitoes at all just three years ago. At this rate there'll be more mosquitoes than air molecules in a few short years. We'll be breathing mosquitoes. When will they eveh learn when will they ev-ah learn...
