For health this year we have been working through some great project books that I found at our local 4-H. We are just about finished with Book A and we’ve had a lot of fun ‘experimenting’ with new and old recipes.
The other day, my oldest princesses got all her ingredients together to make Colossal Cookies. Seeing that she needed to have the butter softened, she took her wise mother’s advice and placed her two sticks of butter on the back porch table. Living in the south allows us to take advantage of the warmer weather even for recipe purposes.
But a few minutes later, she stood in bewilderment at the table. “Where in the world did ONE stick of butter go?” is all I heard.
It took us only a few moments to find out not only where it went..
But we also found the culprit who stole it…
In the end, a new butter stick was brought out. Both were removed ‘out of doggy reach’ and by the end of at the afternoon.. we had some YUMMY cookies to eat.
