cookie swap cookies
I used the recipe for the cream cheese cutouts that I posted around this time last year. I figured they make a whole bunch of cookies in each batch, and they're SOOO good, why mess with a good thing?
No sooner though had I gotten two batches of the dough mixed up, than I found my first ever flour weevil in one of the batches of cookies! Gross!! Needless to say, I threw out both batches, and a lot of flour, pulled out a new bag and carefully sifted every last ounce of it to check for more bugs before sealing it up in an airtight container. And then I started all over again from scratch. While trying to hurry so I could be the living pin cushion once more and finish off the last bit of my dress.
Today, I am reclaiming Sunday as the day of rest it should be. I'll get a couple things that are weighing on my checklist sorted out this afternoon, but this morning I'm being a lazy slug-a-bed, and I think it's well deserved.
