The wonderful scent of Gingerbread

Years ago, in the land before time, I was on a college choir tour. We gave a concert in a remote part of western Nebraska, during a very harsh winter. After the concert, we were divided up into groups of three or four students and went to host homes. For my group the ride to the house was long and cold. The winds were howling and the snow was blowing across the road and the visibility was nearly zero.

We finally got the the remote farmhouse, and when we walked in, we were greeted with warm gingerbread cake with lemon sauce. It has been so many years, and I still remember that home and the thoughtful people who made us welcome on a very cold night.

There's always a place for gingerbread. These ornies are available at:

Looking forward to that wonderful time of year.
