Spaghetti-orzos, Fresh baked bread, Great Gramma Pauline’s Molasses Christmas Cookies

Heat sauce to simmer. Add box of orzo and stir frequently until al dente. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Slice bread. Toast for dipping in soup. Add loads of butter.

The cookies don’t need a thing. Except more icing. Traditionally these cookies aren’t frosted. I’ve never frosted them nor known my family to frost them. I got the hankering for the lemon icing and decided they’d be good iced. I was right. And I even found an online recipe for molasses cookies w lemon icing so I’m not crazy or making it up, didn’t use that recipe, just confirmed the idea.

I hope this meal makes up for its lack of protein with what it offers in comfort!
