Week 17 Monday (4/28/14)

Recipe Review                   

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Quick Candy Cookies
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 124 calories per serving, if 24 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Here's the prebaked cookies

The final product.  They were a hit at school and in the neighborhood

         This is a fantastic recipe if you are in a hurry or if you need something marvelous for kids. The word quick doesn’t even begin to say it. I used the peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough roll from the store. By the time the small pieces had melted, I had unwrapped all of the candy and was ready to insert them into the dough. The entire process took 7 minutes.  Whaaaaaat????? 
         The cookies were moist and so wonderful that I had to have two of them to reassure myself of their goodness.  Okay maybe it was because they were so amazing that I just needed two of them. This is a recipe I will keep close at hand for last minute parties or when I need to take something sinfully wonderful!

         One of the things that makes creating your own cards faster and easier is to create an entire box of blank cards. My friend, Donna, and I went to a scrapbooking session at a hotel in Aurora. It is a marathon scrapping event that is for the entire weekend. We just went for one day, which was enough for our aching backs. My goal for that session was to make as many blank cards as possible.

         The next step is to look through the card files and make a list of needs. I love the sessions where all you do is create wonderful sayings and front decorations. This is great because it is the artistic part of card-making.

Wants and Wishes

         What I would really like, is to have a normal week with reduced stressed. In the past couple of weeks, we wrapped up the Willow dilemma, dealt with the death of three people, and finished up my work evaluation. So if I could have a wish for the next few weeks, it would be to have a regular week with little or no stress. I understand that life just goes on, but I am ready for an uneventful week or preferably a calm month. We are nearing the end of school and I am truly looking forward to summer.
