I made a few dozen chocolate chip cookies this week and put walnuts in half of them.
Some go in the freezer. Some don't make it there.
One bowl cookie recipe
(a very soft cookie)
1/2 cup soft butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mix above ingredients
Drop by teaspoonfuls on sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cool and place in tupperware to keep them soft.
Now it's time to put some loaf cakes away for the holiday season and pull out the gingerbread recipes.
My kitty Christmas banner was a gift from a fellow blogger, Judy from http://judyatgoldcountrycottage.blogspot.com/
Judy is such a nice lady and last year I told her I admired her cute little Christmas banner. She wrote back that she had two of them and would like to send one to me. Before I knew it the banner was at my door wrapped in pretty Christmas paper.
Don't you just love this world of bloggers?
It's one of my favorite Christmas things now. Thanks again Judy.
I've been quite 'under the weather' the last week (actually I feel like a bus full of elephants hit me) and have been drinking loads of tea. Mostly ginger and chamomile with organic honey. The honey helps my sore throat. This bug is a bad one and wants to hang on for dear life. I found a new tea; apple cinnamon chamomile that is like heaven in your mouth. I really don't have time for illness. I am starting with two more 'stay at home kitties' tonight who I have not seen for awhile. I so look forward to spending time with them. They won't care that I look like something the cat dragged in.
It snowed today
and I can't wait to get out there and enjoy it.
Thank you all for your sweet, caring comments on my previous post.
We are all saddened by the loss but realize that it sometimes just happens.
I'm really counting on everyone's good thoughts and prayers to get the eight kittens through the next week. They will be three weeks then. I will give you updates as I hear from the rescue.
