Where did the weekend go?
It flew by~ Work.. garden.. birthday party..
and a bit of cooking..
6 week muffins..that we now always have on hand but with addded flaxseed and wheat bran and plumped raisins..I like them with my coffee and so does J..
I also made my daughter's Oatmeal cookies.. kinda like the CCSC cake..everyone has a recipe..I have..(many;))..but you know how good something tastes when someone else makes them for you?The taste just stuck to me..
You just have to make them yourself:)
Lots of raisins again:)
We have a stocked cookie pantry..my dear neighbour decided to bake yesterday afternoon..it was cloudy and raining.. she brought us chocolate chip cookies.. so we are set here for a few days~~
My Daughter's Oatmeal Cookies
12 tbsps butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
1 1/2 cups raisins
Cream butter and sugars..add the egg mixed with the vanilla..add remaining dry ingredients..Mix well.
I rolled mine into 1 inch balls and flattened
Baked at 375 for ap 12-15 mins..
The directions here are quite general.I wrore the recipe on a tiny piece of paper:)
Speaking of daughters.. another made 2 very delicious HD's this weeekend..one is from Mary:)Her Shrimp Blossoms.. disappeared dans le temps de le dire!
And the other is from Epicurious..I will make them soon and share.She added a twist to the original recipe and they became perfect HD's..instead of a tea sandwich:) You'll see!
Dinner there was divine as usual with Chef Frédérick serving Mussels and fish w/ a wonderful salsa and rice..
A delicious meal.. and our 3 little boys there:)
