> I’m not sure what ended up doing the trick, whether it was the good wishes you sent our way, the sweat and tears we’ve been putting into cleaning up the house, or whether it was just a case of the real estate stars lining up in our favor, but we now have an offer! It’s not a done deal, so please keep your fingers crossed, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
Today, we celebrated by getting the kitchen a little dirty with some cooking with the kids. Flour spilled all over the floor and it was incredibly liberating to just let it fall and just live in the moment.
I love to empower the kids in the kitchen, to give them free rein to make their own creations and experiment to develop their tastes. Today we made what I called Kitchen Sink Cookies. We whipped off a batch of the classic Toll House Cookie recipe base and divvied it up onto three cookie sheets. Then I presented the kids with a multitude of bowls of yummy toppings. It was a struggle to keep them from eating them all!
I was amazed how different the cookies came out. Bella kept hers very plain with just a dash of colored sugar. Jack implanted big chunks of Hershey’s chocolate in most of his cookies, while Juliette adopted a more thorough approach, her cookies can probably be described as chocolate with a little bit of dough to bind.
