Today will be mainly sunny with a high of -10C(14F).
Tonight will remain clear as the temp drops to a normal of -19C(-2F).
Yesterday I made a small batch of brownies. I guess today I'll have to make cookies again as the last batch has disappeared as have the brownies. Today I'm going to change the cookie recipe and make chocolate oatmeal cookies with small pieces of dried cherry. It will be a miniature black forest cake. :)but first I have to move snow. We never had much snow but with the wind it seems to collect n the driveway beside my house.
For Alley, yep that was Kramer in yesterdays blog. Since his 3 month excursion a few years back he's learned where to fill his tummy and never strays far from home but has become an outside cat and likes to go outdoors and look around. it's funny that he chooses to go out in the evening and we usually don't see him until morning when I let Abbey out for her morning chore. It's like a changing of shifts where Kramer comes in and Abey goes out.
For Shore I'll even post the recipe today for my butterscotch oatmeal cookies.

1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 c. butter, soft
1/4 c. sugar
3 1/2 c. oatmeal
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 sm. pkg. , 4 serving, instant pudding (vanilla or any kind)
1 c. raisins (opt.)
Mix flour with baking soda. Combine butter, sugars and pudding in large bowl. Beat until smooth. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mix. Then stir in oats. (Batter will be stiff.) Drop by rounded teaspoons on ungreased sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
I used butterscotch pudding. MMMM
I had to leave out the raisins, none on hand.
My next batch will be with chocolate pudding mix and I'll substitute the raisin's with dried cherry chunks. I also used a tablespoon of dough, rolled onto balls and flattened between the palms. I thought a teaspoon would be too tiny but still ended up with 3 dozen cookies which are all gone.I also substituted and olive oil based margarine for the butter. I guess it's now a healthy snack with no cholesterol and fiber from the oatmeal
LOL I stole a page from Alley's book and posted a recipe.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
