What I Did During the Storm (or Ginger Cookies)

November 14, 2012 | Filed Under Cookies 

I wasn’t very prepared for the storm.   I didn’t have enough food or other essentials.  On the second day of the hurricane, I started to become a little concerned.   With the storm raging outside, I felt like eating something warm and comforting.  I had just enough sugar, flour, baking soda and molasses (to my surprise), ginger, cloves and cinnamon spice to make some ginger cookies.   My friend Sara had given me a simple reicpe. So,  around midnight (I’ve found that I like baking late at night.  That’s another story.), I baked my ginger cookies.   I love chewy ginger cookies and mine came out that way.   Perfect!  It was a good thing I was able to go food shopping after the storm, otherwise our meals would have consisted of ginger cookies — for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.  I’m very grateful the storm is over.
