JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 355 joy is family recipes

23 Dec


Today my joy was making Christmas cookies. I mean, c’mon, it’s hard to get more joyful than Christmas cookies! But for me, it was joyful for two reasons: 1) We made Justin’s Grandmother Ruth’s cookie recipe and they taste amaaaaaazing! and 2) I used my great aunt’s KitchenAid mixer.

The KitchenAid mixer is probably as old as I am, or close to it. But it still works great, practically like new. If the electrical cord wasn’t yellowed from age it would be hard to tell just how old it really is. And from the taste of the cookies, you wouldn’t know the difference. Sometimes new isn’t better. And most of the time, joy comes with memories. 

And that’s a great family recipe, at least a recipe for joy.

More tomorrow…
