My husband made the comment the other day, that I haven't been baking very much lately; no cookies or muffins... 'Gee, I wonder why? It's only 112 out...' I said. Can you believe the nerve of him!? ;) He said 'Yeah but we have air' Ugh... he got me. Soooo.... guess what I have been doing a lot this week? Baking. In the 112 degree weather. First, I made some French Breakfast Puffs. (A picture I took of some I made before...) Those didn't even last 24 hours. I had to save two for the 17 yr old, and two for my husband, with little notes 'Do Not Eat These Evan's Muffins', and so on... :P (Serious!) My husband said the next day, 'Those are my favorite muffins.' Then, I made some brownies. Those lasted a little less than 24 hours. (I didn't get any comment on those, except from the six year old, he loves everything! :P) Today I made these. Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. We'll see how long these last. I couldn't find the exact recipe online, but this one is exactly the same (I added one cup of raisins): Famous Oatmeal Cookies. The 17 year old came in the kitchen while I was baking them and said, 'It smells like a coffee shop in here.' :0 I guess that is a compliment, especially when it is coming from a teenager who hates me.
Yesterday I made (okay, suggested) my six year old write a thank you letter (he likes doing it, sometimes...) to his Aunt who sent him a box of (her son's old, but...) clothes. One of the shirts is just like one he already has. (But, in a size bigger, which is awesome! It will fit him later.) Anyway; I said, "That was nice of her to send you the clothes. Do you want to write her a little note to say thanks? Or draw her a picture?" Well, he did both! I thought the picture he drew was so cute, I scanned it and sent it to everyone. ;P
