Another milestone passed in our most exceptional household. Someone went to the store recently and bought a bag of sugar. Hmmm, when did I last do that? I really can't remember, but I think it was over a year and a half ago, when I bought baking supplies for a Christmas cookie party. The party was postponed so I ended up not making the cookies, and then I used that bag of sugar all year long. I made a pile of traditional Christmas bread to take as hostess gifts here and there, and a chunk of it when relatives made a couple of pumpkin pies at Thanksgiving. No cookie party in 2011 so I made no cookies at all or traditional holiday foods. I did hand out chocolate bark to many friends, no added sugar there.
Lately, my husband has added a teaspoon of sugar back to his coffee, so we have been going through it faster. First, the granulated sugar, then I went to the back of the cabinet and pulled out that old box of crusty confectioner's sugar, and someone found a small bag of brown sugar hidden somewhere way in the back.
