Baking Cookies

Just taking it easy this Sunday afternoon and making some cookies for family night that we'll have later. We like doing FHE on Sunday's instead of Monday Nights. It just works for us. Thought I'd share the recipe for our yummy cookies too. Many of you who share our last name already have this one, but for those who don't... ENJOY!

Bodily’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 ½ Cup Brown Sugar
1 ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Cups Shortening
4 Eggs
2 Tsp. Vanilla
2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tsp. Salt
5 Cups Flour
1 Cup Chocolate Chips - mini
1 Cup Mini M&M's

Beat sugars, shortening, eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, salt and half of the flour; mix well. Stir in remainder of flour and chocolate chips/M & M's. Roll into balls the size of walnuts, place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes or until light brown. Makes 6 dozen.

I was reading the Sunday paper and came across an article about a mom who blogs who's name is Dawn. My friend Jen had sent me an email a while back about how this lady sold some Pokemon cards on Ebay for a good sum of money. Anyway... this lady is now being offered book deals, being asked to write a TV series for Nickelodeon, and even a movie screenplay. Who knows what she'll actually end up doing, but it all started from her blogging and ability to write in humorous ways about family life. I went to her site today just to look it over and will probably visit there once in a while for a laugh. Here is the link

And as promised... (grocery deals) as I was reading the paper I saw that Fred Meyer has petite sirloin in thier ad for $2.99/lb this week. I think I'll try to color all text related to grocery deals in RED. Hope that helps.

I made these last Sunday, Luke was in charge of treats at school. The teacher asked for the recipe, would you like a copyright on this. They are so good. And you do need to post your gingersnap for everyone because they are just as GOOOOODD!

I think it's hilarious that you and I both spoke a few weeks ago about how we thought we were too busy for a Blog. We got hooked, because I have mine up and going too. I love it. I will be checking yours for sure, especially the good deals. I don't buy anything full price, so this will be great for me.
