Goal round-up and People catch-up

This Week’s Goals:

  • Learn how to do links – Done!
  • Post every week day – Skipped Friday, but posted Saturday instead

Not bad. I’d give myself a B.

Next week’s goals are learning how to create a blog roll and a side bar. I want to include the various topics I’ll be writing about: School and different Women’s Ministry events.

On Wednesday, July 2, Lori sent me her infamous recipe for . . .

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 Cup chunky peanut butter
3/4 Cup butter
3/4 Cup white sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 Cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • Heat oven to 375 F.
  • Cream peanut butter, butter, and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Blend in flour and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Drop cookies on ungreased pan and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I’d give these an A. Lori brought these to a CNC’s women’s retreat we had years ago at Santa Cruz. Thanks, Lori, for sharing your memory and recipe.

K and I made these cookies yesterday for a Sing Thing at her parent’s home last night. We also made chocolate covered strawberries. I wish I had my camera because both were works of art. And it was so much fun spending girl time with my 10 year old niece.

Lavender and Old Lace is part of a Summer cookbook challenge to cook all the recipes in a cookbook. Check out her site for more on this. I love this idea, but I am not so ambitious.

So I would like to propose a modified challenge. I’d like to cook all the recipes from one of my magazines like the latest one from Martha Stewart (especially the strawberries-and-cream cheesecake) or one from a past edition of Taste of Home.

I bought a whole collection of magazines (Taste of Home and Quick Cooking) at our annual Women’s Ministry Silent Auction. Thanks K!)

I have fallen into the bad habit of not cooking for myself. And I want to actually cook the recipes I collect. Plus, eating my home cooking will probably be healthier than eating from the MacDonald’s Dollar menu or raiding the pantry for staples such as popcorn and/or cereal.

Anyone care to join me? I’ll be starting next week.
