Gingerbread Christmas Ornaments

EAT, holidays, snacks By December 11, 2010 Tags: , , , No Comments

When I was a student, I felt quite strongly about having a grown-up household on a low budget – especially for the holidays.  In decorating my Christmas tree, I discovered gingerbread ornaments and white bows.  Combined with tiny white lights, it was the most beautiful tree I had ever seen.  (and the anatomically correct gingerbread people made great conversation at parties).  Because we at UrbanMommies love the environment, and also feel that you can be stylish too – you might want to bake these with your kids.  I kept mine for over 10 years.  (Two tips: a)  they don’t taste great after a few years.  b) don’t let your dog eat them.)
