Three days before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse ( ok, the hamster may be up, but they are nocturnal , you know).
I sat in my chair , computer in lap ( along with three chihuahuas)
While everyone else was deep in a nap.
The dogs all piled up, sighing and snoring.
My cats were elsewhere, they found me too boring.
I studied and looked , over recipes I pondered.
"What to send to Bristol?" I sat there an wondered.
"Send me a recipe"....I wrote on my pad.
Maybe this way, it won't turn out bad.
I need something simple, easy to haul.
It has to be packable, not too big or too small.
I have in mind cakes and other delights.
At the rate that I'm going I'll be up all night.
So send me some ideas to look at and savor,
Then when you are in need, I'll return the favor.
I'm serious....I need ideas for tried stuff that is easy to carry on a 9 hour car ride. I am thinking this rules out any thing with frosting or whipped cream ( dang it) and I just am NOT baking a bunch of cookies. Cookies make me jumpy. Too much timing involved.
Anyway, if you have a favorite that would be easy to pack up and could stand a ride on the chuckwagon for 9 hours, send it to me. I need all the help I can get.
