Pfeffernusse

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Sun Nov 19, 2006 4:10 am

Today was not a busy day at the library so I got a lot of books moved around and cleared all the carts in the workroom. I even managed to get the books in the 800 (Dewey Decimal System) straightened out. It was driving me bats everytime I had to shelve a book in that section. Put some books in for repair. Books just don't last as long as they did. It was dry and dusty in the library today. My lips are cracked and dry tonight. I kept putting lip balm on them. I will put some vitamin E on them before I go to bed. That helps a lot. We stopped at the I-HOP for a sandwich on the way home and I tried to drink all the iced tea. We were home about 5:30. I checked out the stew and then went and made Pfeffernusse cookies. I always make them for Thanksgiving and until Christmas. That's it until next Thanksgiving. They are a hard little round dunker, spicy with anise, cinnamon and cloves. German peppernuts. I think the Swedish people have a version, too. Pepperkakor, maybe. I always have trouble getting them the same size but last year my youngest son told me he uses a small melon ball maker. I don't have one of those but I found a half teaspoon measure and used it and now they are about the same size. I put them in a covered jar with half an apple. I cleaned up the kitchen and made a pot of tea and finished the banana coffee cake that I made yesterday.
Tomorrow we are going to install the flooring in the kitchen. DR has to fix the gate to Chance's little yard. The bottom hinge is off or something. I had to tie it shut tonight. She pushed it out at the bottom and was having fun running around the big yard . She paid no attention when I told her it was time to come inside for supper. So, no cookies for her tonight. The Petco store sells dog cookies that look like people cookies. She likes the sandwich cookies best. They have a filling that looks like frosting. DR says it tastes like pork fat. Yuck! She likes animal crackers too.
I pulled a beef roast out of the freezer to cook tomorrow. Maybe I will try out my new Rival electric roaster before I need it for the Thanksgiving turkey. Need to remember to get that turkey out of the freezer, too. One year I remembered it on Thanksgiving morning and spent a couple of hours running cold water on it trying to thaw it enough to cook it for dinner. We ate late that day. I only have to work four days this coming week. Mon, Tues, Wed and Sat. We get Thursday off and Friday is my usual day off. The library is closed on Thursday and Friday so everyone gets those days off. The library is at the Civic Center. They've been putting lights up all over so I guess they will start lighting them after Thanksgiving. I usually get our Christmas things out after Thanksgiving. Our neighbor has his up already. He likes to do it before it gets cold so his fingers don't freeze while he's doing it. He goes overboard. He has lights enough for the whole neighborhood. DR bought a santa and reindeer for the roof this year. He got it at a yard sale. We have a big 5 foot star for the shed roof. I guess we have to figure out how to rearrange our living room, too. But first the kitchen floor and then we'll think about the rest of it. I think it's time to think about sleeping late in the morning. Dooley

Good luck on that kitchen floor, Dooley. I must go back to bed now after reading what you have planned for your day.

I've heard of Pepperkakor (pepper cakes) in passing here Dooley but I have yet to sample one. Not much of a cookie/biscuit person I'm afraid.

Hmm, those cookies sound good. I love anything with cinnamon & cloves & such, though I'm still hunting up a good cookie recipe that doesn't involve butter. DH has high cholesterol, I have high blood pressure, sigh. Hope your new floor goes down successfully!
