I'm making cookies(minus the nuts) to sell during a musical intermission tonight & tomorrow night....but school just got cancelled, again, so I'm not sure if the musical is on tonight or not. It's already been rescheduled once because of last weeks closings. lol. Crazy, crazy weather! I'm still perusing for dinner & more cookie ideas. I shall check back in with my final decisions.

Good morning, 39 degrees here this morning...ouch! Hope the garden is okay. Maters and peppers in my makeshift green house. Lisa I guess they have to make up all those cancelled days, I remember hating that part as a kid.

Yep, they still make up snow days at the end of the year. We've got 1 to make up.

Well the 80's are above average for us in Jan. Will get back to our normal 70/50's this month...which I love.

Hi, Lisa! If you're in the mood to bake, go ahead and freeze the cookies. They look nice and chewy, so they should be alright for a week.

Feb. 1, 2013 5:21 am
So far, we don't have to make up any days. I think we have 6 days set aside for snow days. We've now used our 4th or 5th, I believe. I just made these(found on pinterest)...http://www.plainchicken.com/2010/03/bisquick-chocolate-chip-cookies.html...there will be a ton of chocolate chip cookies at the sale so I'll just save these for us. I love that I could use some of my huge box of bisquick! Haven't tried them yet but they look & smell good :)

Good morning. I'm thinking of halving this recipe. I used to make a very similar recipe....long lost. I'm a little concerned that I'll find it too sweet now, so I'm still looking around. I have two chicken breasts I'd like to cook today, not necessarily in the same recipe.

I made, basically, the same thing lastnight(Taste of Home recipe) but just now realized I forgot the onion soup mix. No wonder it was too sweet & not as good as last time. lol.

Oat Bran Muffins

Submitted by: Bron 
This is not OATMEAL, but oat BRAN muffins. I have made these for about five years now, and I really love them. They are great made with cinnamon or cranberry applesauce, as well as plain applesauce. My daughter loves them and I hope you will enjoy them, too!

Not for dinner, but I'm making more of these today. I can't remember which recipe I used last time-maybe the one on the back of the oat bran package?-but I added dried cherries and they tasted great with the oat bran. This time I'll plump the cherries before adding. It's great to grab one or two of these out the freezer to eat with coffee. I've been trying to eat breakfast-tried eggs for a while, but I'm too distracted in the AM and am afraid I might set the house on fire, as I keep forgetting the stove is on.

Hi, Elle! Some days I want savory, and some days nothing but a fruit-filled muffin will do. I've plumped up raisins before, but not cherries. Great idea!

I Don't Know

Submitted by: KRISTEN5 
I would always ask my mom 'What's for dinner?' and the response would be 'I don't know.' I said I was going to make up a dish called 'I don't know' dish. It turned out pretty good. Ground beef, potatoes and cheese are layered with a few vegetables in this simple one dish meal.

There were two of us circling like buzzards, waiting for the graveyard spot to open at the end of the year. So, for now, we are alternating. Not sure my old body will handle the back and forth well /= This past month on graveyard has been SO peaceful! ~sigh~ After working graveyard for 20 years, I never thought sleep would be a problem, though!

That looks good Linda, I saved it for me, would be great with some grilled chicken. Most the people at this party don't do spicy, a hard crowd to please.
