Gingernuts for a Gingernut (Blood-Orange Gingersnaps)

Blood Orange Gingersnaps

Blood Orange Gingersnaps

Artist has a gorgeous copper coloured mane that falls to her waist in a silken cloud when she allows it to escape its customary braid. Kids are cruel however, and during her school years she was the butt of much bullying. Her hair earned her nicknames like “Ginger” , “Bloodnut” and the despised “Ranga”; a corruption of Orang-outang that implies her colouring makes her less than human. It fairly made my blood boil to see her distress at these stupid taunts.  When I get upset or angry I either clean the house within an inch of it’s life, go for long bracing walks .. or cook comfort food. This is my not-very-subtle reply to those little jerks, a very warm comforting treat (especially with a hot cocoa) for the days that life sucks, we lost the Soccer or I-am-sorry-I-shouted. Gingernuts for my very favourite Gingernut 🙂
