The week leading up to Mother's Day..Jacques had an appointment very close to our Costco..
I had been saying..:"they should have kept their tulips under $10.00"..
That mind set of $9.99 and they would sell more..like they used to be..
they are $11.99 now..and I have not bought one bunch yet..since..
but Jacques did that day..there are 2 bunches in the package..and they are quite spectacular for tulips that are not French or Parrot:)
I have a big vase ..like a big goldfish vase..and they love it in there♥
I had a big one..and it slipped out of my hands a couple of months ago..in the workshop..(cement floor)..shattered..I was quite taken aback by the fact that my fave vase was no more..
then I found another..but huge..r..
these double pack tulips love it.
I look..ed at them so many times every day:)
So so pretty in pink.
And I saw Isabelle's post about the PERFECT chocolate chip cookies..
I HAVE 10 Perfects..:)
But we had guests..Littles..and I thought : "try hers.."
and maybe they are not THE BEST..But they are in that top 10 THE BEST..so I guess they are part of THE BEST:)
I ♥ them..and so easy and delicious..
and I love them more the next day!
For 2 dozen cookies,courtesy of Isabelle@Les Gourmandises d'Isa~
1/2 cup unsalted butter,room temp..(I use salted)
1/2 packed brown sugar
6 tbsps sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract (I use paste)
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 cup choco chips.
Pre-heat oven to 350
In your KA mixer w/ the whisk attachment beat butter and sugars 2 minutes
Add egg and vanilla and beat at low speed until homogenous
Change to the large beater and incorporate the flour,bs and salt that you have sifted before,and the choco chips.
Using a tbsp make dough balls about the size of a large nut..I used my scoop.
Place on your baking sheet (I use Silpat) and leave 2 inches between.
Bake 13-15 minutes until the egdges are lightly golden.
Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack
~ Spring is finally surfacing w/greenery...slowly.. but surely..and the trilliums are just beautiful this time of year..Pulmonaria ,aka ..lungwort(what a name)..ferns..scillas,vinca,forget-me-nots,magnolias,peonies ..all surfacing..it really is a pretty pretty time of the year!
The porch ferns are bought and hung..another basket..some geraniums..at one point it should all come together..I'll be acclimatizing plants I seeded indoors..to get comfy enough for the big move..
..chaque chose en son temps~
