Hi my dear friends!
How`s everyone?

I am sick. 
I might have shingles, I don`t know yet.
I spent most time of the last 3 days sleeping.
I hate it. I know everyone hates to be sick, but I hate to be so lazy and unproductive.

I managed to bake something this morning, which made me feel a little bit better.
I just love cookies.
Baking cookies is the best medicine and I think cookies are my favorite thing to eat!
So, try them out.
Here we go:

Ginger Cookies:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup molasses/agave/maple syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the  2 tablespoons of vanillasugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Speaking of ginger, I dyed my hair again, the color is called "flame red" , it`s henna.I`m really obsessed with red hair, my dream is to have long, red hair...

Sorry, that was kind of a weird post.Well, I`m off to my bed again, just watching movies, reading and knitting.
