Thank you so much for all your prayers and well-wishes! After lots of rest, hot tea, and Tylenol cough syrup I think we are over the worst. The arguing over toys this morning was another good indicator things were getting back to normal. ;0)
Yesterday, I dusted the bedrooms and gave them a good airing out. Luckily, it was warm outside.
The beds got fresh, clean sheets.
As requested, here is the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookies I made the other day. It's from Nestle Tollhouse and the other thing I do differently is take the cookies out before they are completely done, and let them finish cooking on the cookie sheet.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE in preheated 375F oven for 9 to 11 minutes (6-7 in my oven) or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
We have been spending alot of time in the livingroom these last few days. Last night I sorted my scrapbooking supplies and made a few cards.
These last two are for Valentine's Day.
I put a dozen of those cookies in the freezer the other day, I think I'll go bake them for a little snack. :0)
