I've been feeling ________ lately. You fill in the blank and I'm sure it would describe an emotion my little heart has been experiencing. There is nothing traumatic happening in my life, just life happening in my life. There are days that I feel like I'm doing a million different things, but not excelling at any one of them. Like I'm running and running and running, but going no where. I bet on some level you understand what I'm talking about, right?
In an attempt to overcome this funk, Owen and I baked our favorite cookie recipe while Miss Audrey oversaw the process. She was also the official "Cookie Tester." Would you like to try the recipe? Here goes:
Grandma's Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/3 C. butter
1 C. sugar
1 C. b. sugar
2 t. vanilla
3 C. + 6 T. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 C. chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugars; add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix in flour, soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
They are delicious. Sugar and hugs and chubby little babies fix everything.
