Weekend Update: March 9&10 Not much and some seedlings

Stefan has been having a busy time at work and worked 2 10+ hour days Saturday and Sunday. Getting home the no-longer wee hours of the morning. Daylight savings didn’t help. With Stefan gone and me fighting off a bit of a cold/allergies, I did what any girl would do, I read and baked. I finished the 3rd Game of Thrones book and made Daddy’s Cookies and these delish Coffee Cake Cookies. I don’t think I’ve mentioned Daddy’s cookies before. My sister and I made these cookies nearly every week with our Daddy starting when we were teeny tiny. To this day, these are the cookies I make when I’m happy, sad, excited, or just homesick. They taste like home and love and they are the best.

The Coffee Cake Cookies are a sweet bunch of yummy. Next time I’d add pecans to the crumbly topping. I meant to and completely forgot. I also just made some simple sugar cookie recipe since I didn’t have a tube of Pillsbury slice and bake handy. I’d go with a dryer, less buttery cookie to offset the sweetness of the topping.

Also, a bunch of seeds sprouted!


Mostly Roma and Cherry tomatoes and cilantro. The Peppers and Shasta Daisies will take a little longer as will most of the herbs. SO exciting!

And since this is such a weak post, here’s a picture of Vector on the way home from the Pound on June 10, 2012. Cutie-Pie!


Have a good week!
