I have just finished making cookie dough to bake tomorrow. I find that cookies are easier to bake and hold their shape better if the dough is chilled thoroughly first. I fixed old fashioned oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip dough. The recipe for the oatmeal cookies is on my recipe space, the chocolate chip recipe is on the Nestle chocolate chip package. I have tried many recipes for chocolate chip cookies and I haven’t found one yet that beats the recipe on the bag. I will put some of the cookies in the freezer and share the rest with my daughter and son in law.
This has been a pretty miserable day weather wise. A severe thunderstorm woke me up this morning at 5:30. Lots of lightning and loud booms. I turned over and went back to sleep for another hour and a half. The sun tries to come out every now and then in between rain showers.
I have been out today, paying a bill and going to the grocery store. I settled in to watch the trial which was recessed ASAP till tomorrow morning at 8 AM. No verdict on the Blagojevich trial yet. Trials fascinate me. I sat on the jury in a federal drug case quite a few years ago and on the jury of a drunk driving case in my county. That is the extent of my jury experience. I wouldn’t mind doing jury duty again if it was in town here. I sure don’t want to have to drive to Peoria,
I hope you all are having a sunny day. Stay safe and be happy!
