homemade cookies

November 29th, 2006 at 08:28 am

I just made homemade cookies for the first time in ages. Mainly because there are just the two of us, and we are always watching our weight. But my husband is really getting too skinny. So I made these cookies for my bridge ladies today, hoping my husband and not me, will eat most of them.
I ran to the store this morning to get the cookie mix, some eggs and some food for my little puppy Holly. why is it, the only food she will eat, cost $1.75 a tub? Talking about expensive dog food.
Oh well, she is worth it.
I used my store car and saved $3, plus I walked a mile and had a no gas day. So I have $5 to add to my challenge money.
Prev. total $18,687.00
today 5.00
new total $18,692.00

    I so love warm cookies! I taste test the first one out to make sure it is done. Then I eat the last one out of the oven while it's hot.

    I think paying yourself for walking is a great idea. Maybe it would motivate me to do the same!
    I didn't know cookie mixes existed. What kind of cookies were they?
    I am also over sixty, and my husband is seven years younger. However, he does not clean! He can cook well, but rarely does. How do you do it?

    At first I didn't know if I add a $1 for a mile walked, but you are right Nance, it is a good motivation. We do everything else to cut corners and save money. HuH! Maybe, I can talk my husband into paying me a dollar for every mile I walked, because he is on me about that all the time. Maybe it's time that he puts his money where his mouth is. Ha Ha

    And yes, Broken Arrow, I think that Jeffrey is probably putting smellavision here for the cookies because I can smell them too. Makes me want to go in there and bake some.

    Here I am debating between making cookies and brownies, now cookies sound better...I really shouldn't make either since I'm trying to avoid white flour and sugar. Sigh. But I can smell them, Ima...
