Week 39 Thursday (10/9/14)

Recipe Review        
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Chocolate Chunk Cookies
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 151 calories per serving, if 36 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I can't imagine how I ever made cookies without Silpat liners

Look at those chocolate chunks. Mmmmmmm Good!

       I really liked these cookies, but I don’t think I added all of the flour, which made them a little too buttery, (if that is even possible). I realized that I forgot to add the three Tablespoons of extra flour the next day. I did love these cookies enough to make them again. The people at school must agree, since I came home with no leftovers. They are a wonderful gauge at what is good and what isn’t. Try these gems.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden       

Scabiosa Columbaria “Butterfly Blue”

Isn't the flower beautiful?

The plant is new and fragile

I love these fragile looking flowers. The color is so pretty and it adds a soft touch to a hearty garden. The tag says:
         They are also called the pincushion flower. The pretty bluish color makes this perennial a must for the garden. I have mine in the backyard gardens where there is no shade. If watered occasionally, these flowers are happy in full sun. My flowers bloomed in late April and are still blooming now. Any frost will do then in, however. These are pretty easy to grow and I just love the actual flower. The biggest positives for me are the color and all of the butterflies that this flower draws to the beds.

Irksome Ideas and Images

         Today, I was reflecting on the word irksome. I thought you might enjoy some synonyms for this unique word. A few other choices might be aggravating (like when you ask your child to put something away for the third time), bothersome, exasperating (how I felt in a 62 person line at Comcast), nettlesome, pesky, rankling, and vexing. Here’s a golden opportunity to increase your vocabulary!
