About this NaCoBakMo Thing

I am a jealous and competitive woman. When my husband, the highly efficient Unfocused Me, successfully completed 50,000 words of effort for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) I sought solace in a batch of cookies: “Hey, it ain’t NaNoWriMo, but at least I got my first batch of Christmas cookies done.”

The dangerous suggestion which followed was really a joke: what about a National Cookie Baking Month? Could I really make a new cookie every day through Christmas Eve, during the most hectic month of the year? Starting with that first batch of cookies on the day after Thanksgiving, I decided to find out.

But 28 days of baking makes for a lot of cookies, and I have no desire to go shopping for larger clothes. As a result, I am giving away these cookies to those of you who make a $25 minimum donation to the Irving Park Community Food Pantry, a great organization in my neighborhood dedicated to serving the hungry. (The trick to making a successful donation: do NOT type a $ in the box before your donation amount. It makes the shopping cart freak out.) Send me your e-receipt to sirensyncopated at gmail dot com along with your shipping address by no later than Christmas Eve, and I will send you a nice assortment of the results of this project in the week after Christmas.

Anyone in the mood for some cookies?
