I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!
Some dinosaurs have stomped into the Little Amaryllis shop. Get one today before they are gone off the earth again.
I think I finally finished our wedding scrapbook! After figuring out how to add all the cards, I just added a few more embellishments and treasures to complete it. Now it has all the little love notes and sentiments from family and friends, as well as tokens from our big day that we’ve been keeping for years.
I used the scrapbook as a guestbook for our wedding, and our guests wrote little notes on notecards that I added to the book. We have some pretty precious drawings from our younger guests.
The album is 12×12, but I added some different sized page protectors to accommodate some larger keepsakes, like extra wedding invites. I also just hole punched some things, like our wedding programs, to add them in directly. I count this as a very successful scrapbook project!
We went to the farmers market downtown on Saturday morning. We had a very sunny taco and cinnamon roll breakfast, and then wandered around the vegetables. We were pleased to see that our cucumbers rival even the best local farms, and that we could sell the weeds that grow abundantly in our driveway for $2 a bag. We decided our imaginary farmers market stall would also have sage, rosemary, spinach, and loaves of sourdough bread.
We might go back next week just for more of those super cute little onions.
Its almost the weekend, which is a good excuse to eat cookies for breakfast! There are a lot of “breakfast cookie” recipes popping up, so they might be worth a try!
