Happy Time for Ducks

The rain is back, and the wind with it. I enjoy a nice, blustery night. Of course, it helps that I don't have to be out in it. I can sit in my warm (except for the room Sluggo lives in) house and listen to the storm while drinking tea and munching a cookie or two. Which reminds me, it's time to buy my annual package of pfeffernuesse cookies. Or perhaps I should give Stella D'Oro a miss and make my own. I'm sure there are recipes to be found on line.

Later: While searching for a recipe, I used the Google automatic translation feature to view this German page and found its Engrish delightful. If features both "first-class prescriptions" an "mad prescriptions," as well as some questions submitted by people having difficulty with the proper preparation of featured dishes. My favorite; "assitance my roast does not succeed to me which is I to do?" A desperate cry for help, if ever I've heard one.

But I grew weary of searching through sites trying to find a pfeffernuesse recipe that looked as though it would produce something similar to the commercial cookies with which I have long associated the season. So, Stella D'Oro it will be.
