Today has been a very strange day weather wise. We got well above freezing today and the sun was shining all morning. At about 2 the clouds started to move in. We are still above freezing, but now there is a greater risk of that lovely freezing rain..... Which means driving to work on ice covered roads come Monday morning when the temperature drops once again.
Considering what is happening in New York State this really seems minor. My thoughts and prayers are with those that are stranded, or buried under snow.
Since I managed to finish my to do list early today, I decided to do some more baking.
First off I made these....
Then I moved on to some Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Then I made those perennial favorites. Unbaked Chocolate Cookies.
Unbaked Chocolate Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
2 1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
Mix butter, milk, sugar and cocoa in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add oatmeal. Drop by tablespoonsful onto wax paper. Cool and store. You should get about 2 dozen. Work quickly as the mixture hardens very fast.
After baking for most of the day, and doing the usual Friday chores, I did something I normally do not do. About a month ago my grocery had a BOGO free event. Taking advantage of it I bought these.....
Made them tonight just to save time and really they were not too bad considering they weren't homemade (I think we might be a touch spoiled here on the old homestead). Still have part of the bag left and some leftover from our dinner. Don't think I would make a habit of buying them, but if the opportunity arises I think a few packages for emergencies would be quite okay.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
