Got your attention? He he...
I was just describing the biscottis I made-- Honey Nut Biscotti (ok... so I couldn't part with my cocoa- shoot me later; I have 7 more baking days to go)
Again I found this recipe at Food Network from Ellie Krieger. She used pistachios, but of course, i didn't have any of those, so... it's got pecans and walnuts in it instead which makes them NUTTY. Each loaf had to be sliced and double baked (STUBBORN), and dipped in bittersweet chocolate that was rather tedious by the time I was done with most of the slices (DIFFICULT).
Tonight is our Aunt Kate's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The biscottis are in her honor and hopefully, we can send some to her also.
That is if the kiddos, don't eat it all first! :-)
Tonight was also rather like all of the above-- we had moments that fell into those categories, but our story, "The Little Match Girl" who tried to warm herself with the matches she was selling but died in the attempt showed us that sometimes we forget just how good we have it and that outside of our cozy though bouncy bubbles, there are true sufferings out there; hidden by our rushed ways.
This Christmas season, may we be slowed down enough to reach out to those in need...
