Mmmm...yummy!

I made ginger cookies yesterday...they are so good! They remind me of Old Salem...they taste like thicker Moravian spice cookies. I got the recipe off of here, but for some reason you can't print off of that page, so I'll type up the recipe here.

Cure All Ginger Snaps

1 3/4 c. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cloves
1/2 c. butter @ room temperature
2/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1 egg
2 T. molasses
sugar to roll the cookies in

Mix first six ingredients. Beat brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in molasses & egg. Beat in dry ingredients. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 325'. Form dough into small balls, roll balls in sugar, and flatten with glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

This recipe makes about 3 dozen...next time I make it I'll probably make a double batch. They are best the first day though, so it might be best to keep the dough in the fridge or freezer and bake however many you want when you want them.

In other news, I got my ceiling spackled around the edge and sanded. I took today off from painting, I woke up this morning all stiff. So I cooked dinner tonight instead of tomorrow which is my usual day.

So the plan is that I get up on time tomorrow, get two coats of primer painted, and hopefully get a coat of paint on the ceiling as well. Then I guess I'll put another coat up on Friday, then it has to sit for a while before I can put tape on it. And I'll have to tape before I do the walls, so I guess I won't get to the walls till, hmmm...Monday - Wednesday. Oh well, I never have time on the weekends for much extra anyway...at least not for painting!
