A Betty Crocker Kind Of Day
Just wanted to share a couple of photos of Madeline and me making cookies this afternoon. I didn't feel like heading to the grocery store so I was limited to bake with ingredients that I had at home. I thought that would leave us with the "Oatmeal Raisin" option but, no, I did not have raisins. Therefore, we improvised and made "Oatmeal Craisin" (dried cranberries) cookies. Madeline enjoyed sniffing the various spices before they were added to the recipe and also passing judgement (solely on looks) on what was being added by stating "I like this" or "I don't like this". With EVERY ingredient added Madeline exclaimed, "I wanna taste!" but I was successful in holding her off until I was done mixing the batter and she was able to have her own beater to lick (of course I had the other one). Now, I must say that the *last thing* I needed was a huge batch of cookies sitting around the house however Madeline and I enjoyed the together time in the kitchen.
