I feel good today and this is the first day I have felt good in weeks. Thank you God!!
I have been out and about this morning. I stopped by Food Depot which is a supermarket that has name brand food plus the County Market brand at really low prices. Today I got some really good bargains. The most impressive ones being Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk (fat free) for 25 cents a can, Pillsbury family size brownie mix for 88 cents and a 5 lb. bag of flour for 89 cents. I had my cart full and the total price was $19.71. Then on to Kroger where I bought the necessities. Kroger is my favorite store even though they are a bit expensive.
Yesterday afternoon the urge came on me to try something different. I roughly crushed peppermint sticks and decided to make peppermint cookies. I made up the recipe and they turned out to be delicious. I was just thinking what I usually use to start a cookie recipe. Most cookie recipes start basically the same. One thing I did differently was to use all powdered sugar (sifted) in place of regular sugar. I think an addition of crushed walnuts or pecans would have been nice and a bit of white frosting topped with a miniature cane would make them look festive. Now to try them on my official taste testers, my daughter and son in law. If they like them I will put the recipe on my recipe space.
It is getting time to think about lunch, the cleaning will wait until tomorrow. You all stay safe and be happy.
