The worst gingerbread house ever made.

Worst. Gingerbread. Ever.

I think I am in contention for the worst gingerbread house ever made.

The worst gingerbread house ever made.

See, I lack the two qualities necessary to succeed in the gingerbread house making world: patience and precision. My dough was too crumbly. I didn’t bother to try to make even, straight pieces. I didn’t bother trying to make a slanted roof. I burnt the gingerbread. The icing was too runny.

The melted Jolly Rancher windows came out surprisingly nicely.

Trying to put my gingerbread house together I just kind of held the pieces in place and dumped as much frosting as possible over it in hopes that something would stick.

I just spent my entire day on this damn thing because the weather is too crappy to go anywhere and someone cancelled the ski trip I was supposed to be on right now.

If this thing survives until tomorrow I might try to decorate. Might.

Stay tuned for gingerbread watch 2007…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
