Make Our Own (then scoff the lot) part 2

Can you darn well blasted believe it!??? After the last number of weeks with the flu I was finally getting back on my feet. First there was the tree surprise (that was truly wonderful) and then yesterday I surprised my hubby again by making gingerbread for the first time in this new house - the first time I had really used the kitchen in a creative flurry : ) Those of you who have been with me a while shall know the terrible shame that I am not the cook in this house - my hubby is. But boy I can bake! :)

Anywho before I show you the joy that was gingerbread making I must inform you that I have been struck down again. Blasted, accursed, bloody, confounded, damnable, despicable, detestable, doggone, execrable infernal, loathsome lousy reprobate of a this flu (NO 3 little letters is not enough to describe this beast)  Influenza has attacked once more without fair warning.  I am merely an unarmed pacifist!  Have pity on me dear reader - I feel like a beached whale (odd comparison but true)...  

Okay, the gingerbread..... :)
I have a secret ingredient but no amount of tickling will ever get it out of me and don't come looking for my recipe book - like a cheeky monkey I haven't written it down either, hahahahahahahahhahahahaha *cough*

  1. That's awful Carrie - the flu not the gingerbread which I'm sure was wonderful. Yours is the non VAT version - apparently if you ice a little face and buttons on it you have to charge VAT - how daft is that?

  5. Simon - I am shocked! Such cheek you have, to say you are sorry about my flu but then use it against me for your own gingerbread - y gains. Maggie is so innocent - don't taint her pure heart, she's a sucker for a treat.
    WHY Simon, why???

    I've escaped colds 'n' flu this year, being cooped up. But a 'healthy visit' for Physio has left me achy and sniffly -Boo!

  13. Hope you feel better soon Carrie. We are all under the weather here but not bad enough to stop work, just lingering lurgy. I'll have to get Rach on to baking gingerbread again, it looks good!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh no! I wondered where you'd gone. Sorry to hear that the lurgy won't leave you alone. Kick it into touch with more gingerbread and get well soon.

  15. ha! to have a sense of humor whilst in the middle of YET another bout if influenza is admirable.
    Maybe someday you'll decide you love us all enough to share the secret ingredient (*innocent grin*)

  16. Oh, hon, it's terrible to have the flu twice in a row. Sending you a hug and get-well-quick wishes.

    But gingerbread must be surely be the best food for combating a flu. You sound in wonderfully good spirits in spite of it all. :)
