On Tuesdays, I post a picture and just a few words.
So said Zoe when I brought home a gingerbread house kit, purchased on clearance at Aldi.
She’s right. I’m not sure we’ve ever bought one of these in December since I can only be convinced to pay for rock-hard gingerbread when its marked down to just a few dollars after the holidays.
I know homemade gingerbread would be way more delicious. But the odds of me making the time to do from-scratch gingerbread houses are very low, so after-Christmas clearance kits it is around here.
And like Zoe says, it’s kind of a tradition now anyway. It would feel sort of wrong to do this in December.
(By the way, do you notice the muted colors on the candies? Aldi has phased out artificial colors on all of their private label products, which is pretty cool. I mean, not that candy is ever exceedingly healthful, but I’m always up for taking artificial stuff out of food.)
