The kids and I decorated gingerbread men today. We used Martha Stewart’s Gingerbread Snowflake recipe, which cooks up firm and peppery & perfectly delicious. There was music on the radio. The family gathered round. For all intents and purposes, it was a typical family Christmas activity. At least, it was until we decided that our plain-old gingerbread men needed a bit of boom-boom . Traditional looking gingerbread girls wouldn’t do, either. After all, we had bacon in the fridge and ‘Bad Romance’ blaring from the speakers while 8-year-old, Jacob, pop-and- locked some rock-awesome moves on the linoleum. Straight up.
So, we gave our dang cookies some serious style. Those gingerbread people turned into gingerbread ladies–Gingerbread Lady Gaga’s–that is, each one inspired by some of Gaga’s most memorable looks throughout the years. Which, I happen to think makes them freaky adorable. I’ve been keeping an eye out for paparrazzi. We wouldn’t, after all, want them to chase down our gingerbread gals. As it turns out, we’re already k-kinda busy (eating them up.)
