Top of the Morning to you,
Praise God for another day. How are you? I hope all is well. All is well for me, doing my best with the big task before me of mothering, homeschooling, homemaking and blogging. Balancing those things weekly is not an easy task, but God’s grace gives me the ability to get it done. Not perfectly but good enough for my family to be happy, healthy and comfortable.
This week for no reason at all, I wanted to try to make “Lucky Charm Cookies.” I looked for some recipes on Pinterest and believe it or not I found some. I did not find a cookie from scratch recipe, the recipes I saw used packaged cookie mix or a cake mix. I didn’t have those, so I used an “Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie” recipe from in a Betty Crocker cookbook. Then I added 2 cups (plus extra marshmallows) of Lucky Charms and 1 cup of white chocolate chips to the mix. My kids absolutely loved these cookies.
My children did most of the work. I just supervised. I love that I can pass on these skills and memories to my children.
The cookie recipe I used called for Cream of Tartar. We are also planning to make homemade playdough this week, which also calls for Cream of Tartar.
Do you use Cream of Tartar in your cooking or baking?
I pulled together some information on Cream of Tartar, for anyone who ever asked the question What is Cream of Tartar and What Can You Use It For?
Last week I managed to do something I wanted to do for a while. I got to clean out the fridge, which was an eye-sore before. Our fridge is old. The trays at the bottom where broken. Then I got a wonderful idea. I removed the bottom trays completely and replaced them with small storage containers we bought from Target, 5 for $5.00. I did not take a before picture, but here is how it looks now. I’m so proud of how the inside of my fridge looks now.
These (13 5/8″ L x 8 1/4″ W x 4 7/8″ H) 6 Qt containers are really good for storing things like small fruits, snacks, art supplies, flash cards, card games, small toys, Legos, hair accessories and more. These containers are fantastic organizational tools.
On Sunday, I did my daughter’s hair in preparation for church using this Star Braid post as my inspiration.
I need more practice in parting straight lines. Look at that beautiful hair.
So God bless you and thank you for hanging out with me for a little while. I would like to invite you to be a part of my link party “Sunday Show ‘n’ Tell.” A monthly link party where we share the things that we have seen, read, heard, created, written or experienced that made our week special. I would love for you to share.
