Yikes, it’s been a while. My only slightly valid excuse is that I started a new job a few weeks ago, and I’m still getting settled. Anyway, I’m back!
Here are a couple of things you missed while I was gone:
#1 – Happy Halloween! Can anyone tell what we were going for? (My shirt says “P,” by the way.) We got a total of zero trick-or-treaters, but at least we went to a party so we could take our $0.30 costumes somewhere. I ate all of the Halloween candy by myself (I think Joe literally had 2 pieces).
#2 – I got a shipment in of colorful tagua bracelets:
#3 – I made two batches of these, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies! Probably not the most perfect-looking cookies, but they are definitely the easiest and most moist. Two of the three people I shared them with asked me for the recipe, so I take that as a good sign that they taste good too. I sure didn’t have any trouble eating them. (You can thank Sarah again for this recipe.)
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (The Easiest Recipe Around)
1 carrot or spice cake box mix
15 oz. can of pumpkin
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
Directions – pour cake mix and pumpkin into a large bowl and mix until ingredients are well blended together. Fold chocolate chips into the mixture. Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake 10-15 minutes at 350ºF. Done.
