I did some baking last night. I made corn bread. I am preparing some more baked items today. I know most of you don't need it, but if you do, please call me if you need a cup of sugar, flour, eggs, baking soda, salt or milk. I know how you can forget something or be out of sorts due to the holiday rush. Email me back or call me at 703-421-4599.
