I'm really going to miss my Friday afternoon post. I like it. A Friday morning post will suffice, and give me something to think about when I am sucking in the Western sky from my tent tonight.
I made heart shaped ginger bread "cookies" today. The "cookies" are much more bread-like, or cake-like than I had intended, but the dough was too sticky to press out, so I added more flour, since it was too late to add more butter. They taste good, BUT they are not the dense, soft delightfulness that I was hoping to make. I am officially on the hunt for a new recipe. The one I used for this batch is from my Better Homes cookbook. I call it the cook book for non-cooks. It tells me how long to cook asparagus, and how to make butter cream frosting. Usually I am quite pleased with the food I brew up out of the potions in that cook book, BUT... i gotta go else where for my ginger cookies. Oh! I should look up ginger cookies, or soft ginger snaps, instead of ginger bread. NOW I figured it out. Hmm...should I mention there is zucchini in my cookies? Because we just have a lot of zucchini so it is added to everything possible? Nah. I will keep that my little secret.
So. Are you missing my kids? You are, aren't you! Well, if you insist, I'll post another adorable photo, okay, two adorable photos.
Sunday supper outside.
Enjoy the weekend and here's hoping for a real live starry night!
