Guess what? I did more baking on Monday. Surprise, surprise. We were going to have some Christmas dinner with a few friends on Monday night so I decided to make presents for our friends.

When your husband’s grandma asks you to trim her rosemary tree and to take all the extra rosemary, you do it.

His grandma has a magical green thumb, where she is able to throw seeds anywhere and they pop up healthy and happy. She also had a big rosemary bush that she asked Russell to trim. He trimmed it and we kept all the “scraps”. We left with two giant bags of rosemary which we lugged with us our entire trip. We’re not complaining since it kept our car smelling nice. (more…)
