Happy Birthday, Dad!!!!!!!!!!!
We had Grandparents’ Tea tonight at the center and it was a success. Usually we have it during the morning and it’s quite hectic – the children who don’t have grandparents come are a little confused and sad, there are way too many people in that little room, and when the grandparents go – the children are sad, and we still have the whole day to deal with. This was much, much better to have it in the evening.
I’m too tired to post a picture. We made cookies for the event, and I was quite pleased with how the oatmeal ones turned out. Using Craisins is key!! Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup crisco
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 t. vanilla – mix all that
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1 T. cinnamon
- 1 t. salt – mix all that, add to wet stuff
- 3 cups quick-cooking oats – add that to the above
- a big handful of delicious Craisins
Scoop onto cookie sheet, bake 10 – 11 minutes at 350. Healthy and yummy!
Ok, Karla, cough up that banana bread recipe. Everybody else, tell us how to cook something, too!
