"Can't Catch Me. . ."

"I'm the gingerbread man!"

Currently, Ben's favorite book is this story (our version has great shmaltzy pictures by Elfrieda).  And Genevieve's favorite book is Little Mommy by Sharon Kane, in which the little girl bakes "cookies and ginger cake."
As I read bedtime stories one evening this week, I realized I needed to use up or freeze the soured cream in my fridge.  So I took advantage of a cool evening and made gingerbread (from More with Less). 

We ate it with peaches and vanilla ice cream.  I would have preferred plain whipped cream, but alas, the occasion for the gingerbread was the sour cream.  The combination of spicy, earthy gingerbread, vanilla ice cream, and sweet sweet juicy peaches was still fabulous, something to repeat for sure.

More with Less -- is this a book by Doris Janzen Longacre? I want to investigate this at my library - sounds interesting and useful!

Kay, yes it is. Sometimes I link to it on the web - I'll try to be more consistent with that. It is a wonderfully useful, instructive cookbook - let me know what you think!
