I baked the ginger nuts today after eaten a really simple dinner. I’m glad I downsized the recipe to half of what the originally was, or else I would still be in the kitchen rolling out the nuts. It took quite a while, but it was fun :)
In between the baking and watching the oven, I finished the label that are going on the jar. I used some ‘glue-paper’ to attatch it to the jar. The label says ‘homemade ginger nuts’. This is how it came out:
250 gram butter
250 gram sugar
2 dl full cream
1.5 tea spoon ginger
1 tea spoon cinnamon
1 tea spoon pepper
0.5 tea spoon cardamom
0.5 tea spoon baking powder
1 tea spoon baking soda
500 gram flour
Stirr the butter and sugar until it’s ‘white’. Add the full cream, spices and flower mixed with the baking soda. Mix it well together.
Put the dough in the frigde over the night. Roll the dough into finger-thick lenghts. Cut in small pieces and make the ball-shaped. Bake them in the ove at 190° in 12-15 minutes.
After I finished work at 16.00 I went downtown. I had to go to the post-office to send the slutbook to Chantie. It’s now on its way to her. I hope she’ll get it soon. At the post-office I also sent some office-mail, bought some stamps and envolopes for my christmas cards. I have to finish those soon. Not sure when I got time for that though…
Tomorrow I have to make Gro’s birthday card. I guess I’ll be stuck with that for a while. I really have to do some cleaning too, because I get a friend over on saturday. My apartment looks like a mess. Sigh. On thursday, me and my colleague G*Star, we’re going on a christmas party arranged by the company that collects the money from people who won’t pay their bills. (Don’t kow the name for such companies…) It will last all evening.
On friday it’s Gro’s birthday dinner. The girls are meeting at Santinos downtown for dinner. Will be fun. Now if I only could find out what to wear….
And on saturday Bjørg is coming. We’re going shopping. First at IKEA and then maybe a big mall in Sandvika, right outside Oslo. She’ll stay until sunday :)
So maybe sometime on sunday I can finish the cards. I thought about asking Ellen over for dinner, but I’m not sure yet. She’ll be away for most of the weekend I think and I’m not sure when she’ll be back on sunday. Maybe I also would like the sunday to just relax all by myself too. Hmm. I would have to think about it. No need to settle any plans right now.
