MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

In an effort to learn more about fellow MilSpouse bloggers, Wifey from Wife of a Sailor started this weekly meme;  here are this week's questions. 

1. What do you see your life like in 10 years?

Captain Husband and I would like to have three kids if possible, so 10 years from now I see myself sending the youngest off to preschool and re-entering the workforce; my future plans include becoming an accredited appraiser of antiques so I might be working on getting that business underway.  CH will still be in the Army (although retirement would only be a few years away, woot!), so who knows where we'll be living at that point but as long as we're all residing in the same time zone, I'll be happy.

2. What do you like most about your job? 

I like that I get to spend so much time with my son during this formative time of his life.  Everyone always says the first year goes by so fast, but I had no idea just how the quickly the time would fly by.

3. What are three things you do every day, no matter what day it is? 

Go to Dunkin' Donuts for my caffeine fix (seriously, if I ever just up and disappeared one day, the cashiers at Dunkin' Donuts would probably be the first to report my absence to the police); Skype or talk on the phone with Captain Husband; and last but not least I wash diapers and baby bottles every. single. day.

4. What would you do with an extra five hours in your day today?

I would probably try to catch up on some sleep.  I've been burning the candle at both ends this week.

5. What is your favorite Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate) cookie recipe (please share!)?

Is it horrible that I don't make Christmas cookies?  However my favorite ones to eat are gullets; my grandma and my uncle used to make dozens of them every Christmas.  Don't know what a gullet is?  It's a French-Belgian waffle cookie--kind of like a pizzelle, but thicker...here's the recipe (for more info on gullets, click here).

1 pound butter
3 cups light brown sugar
6 eggs
7 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch salt

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and beat. Add remaining ingredients. Roll into 1-inch balls and place in the center of Belgian cookie iron for about one minute or until golden brown.
Yield: About 7 dozen.

I just popped in from the Friday Fill-In, and those gullets are making me wish I had a waffle iron. :-)
