Baking in the cold.


It's mid-winter break for school this week. It's been hard to get motivated to do anything but relax. Isn't that what break is for? It's the third day of break and I worked less today. It usually takes me a few days to decompress and step away from the crackberry! Today I got a few small things accomplished. The most delicious accomplishment? I baked "THE Chocolate Chip Cookie" from www.notwithoutsalt.com - 36 of them to be exact.

They turned out even better than expected. Ashley knows what she's doing. I then let the 9 year old man of the house choose dinner. He chose nachos. Who can blame him. A lightly salted chip, cheddar cheese and the perfect amount of seasoning plus sour cream? I made mine with Swiss, a major treat and I wouldn't have them any other way except with onion and black beans...


All the while it's snowing outside. Let's hope it keeps coming down for a cozy day indoors. The week keeps getting better and better.
