My MOM and "CHERRY WINKS"
I have Mary Jane's calendar and for today is says "Bake cookies today". . . so I am. I decided to stir up some memories of my childhood Christmases on the farm, of my mom in the kitchen and "Cherry Winks". These are a yummy cookie that my mom traditionally made every year at Christmas. So, with my Christmas CDs playing selections from Vince Guaraldi, Johnny Mathis, Neil Diamond, Mannheim Steamroller and Celtic Christmas, I'm baking my cookies, whispering "thank yous" to my mom (she's been in heaven since February 1994) and relishing the fond, sweet memories of Christmas on the farm . . . and look out the window at the farmhouse I grew up in. It's just down the road! And our world is white with snow . . . hallelujah!
