It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Christmas!

Posted in Journal tagged , , , , at 4:01 pm by Jenn

I’m baking cookies for the exchange this weekend and it sure does smell good in my house today.  One of the writing prompts for Holidailies 2008 is:

Describe the top three scents or flavors that always evoke holidays for you.  I thought this would be a good one for today.

1.  I love the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree so I guess the first scent would be pine.  I only like the fresh pine scent though, I don’t enjoy pine candles or those car christmas trees…only fresh cut pine or fresh pine wreaths…I wish I had a fresh pine wreath.

2.  The second scent/flavor – APPLE CIDER!  There is nothing better that a glass of hot apple cider, or cold apple cider or spiced apple cider…you get my drift.  I love the smell of apples in any form pie, cider, candle, etc.

3.  The third is hard…off the cuff I’d say peppermint.  I don’t really care for peppermint candies on a day to day basis, but there is something about a peppermint mocha, or peppermint mocha cookies, or the smell of a candy cane that just says “holidays” to me.

Ok, all this talk about food and me not having eaten lunch yet is NOT a good thing with all these cookies in the house!  : )

    My three are: (1)PINE-fresh or candles.(2)SPICE-clove, cinnamon, pumpkin…any combination like that, yum!
    (3)CANDY-my mom makes homemade hard candy every year. It’s a tradition in our family. I am not a huge fan of some of the flavors-once added to the hot candy mixture- but it is surely a sign of the holidays in our family!

    Gingerbread…I forgot about gingerbread. That’s a good one too.

    The hard candy sounds interesting Jen. I’ve never tried to make it. Scott and I are going to tackle buckeyes here in the next week or so.
