I made cookies! =)
After Mr. Young went to work on my DIY backpacking pack again...

Shoulder and hip straps, complete. =) Now to put together the back...
Attaching the completed shoulder and hip straps to the back of the pack...
Mark's finished pack (left) and the back of my pack... progress!
Tryin it on for size... =)

I had to do something fun (since my treasure hunting was a major flop today).
So I threw three of my favorite cookie recipes together and made one grand batch of scump-diddily-umptious cookies.When they came out of the oven, Bayley wanted in on the delicious action too!Needless to say Mr. Young and myself may have enjoyed a few more than we should have....But don't worry, we all went on a run/bike ride to shed those extra calories. =) I took this skilled picture one handed, with my phone, from my bike! Skeeeels baby.Successful evening to be sure.

Want the cookie recipe? Here you go!
  • 1/2 c Butter
  • 1/2 c Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 c White Sugar
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 c Flour
  • 1/4 t Baking Soda
  • 1 c Oatmeal
  • 1/4 Salt
  • 3/4 c Toffee Candy Bits
  • 1 c Chocolate Chips
Cream together butter, sugars and vanilla. Beat eggs slightly then add to butter/sugar mixture. Grind oatmeal in blender or food processor into flour like consistency. Combine flour, oatmeal, salt and baking soda then add slowly to moist ingredients. Mix in toffee and chocolate chips.

Drop dough by the teaspoon full onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until "tips" of cookies
just begin to turn golden. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Replace onto wax paper or rack to finish cooling.
