White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
I got the delicious white chocolate macadamia nut cookies baked last night. This recipe says it makes 54 but I got 72. Usually I get less than what the recipe claims. Oh, well, more for us to enjoy!
I got some cleaning done, too. I left a note for Mr. Aitch to vacuum the upstairs today and I’ll do the downstairs when I get home.
My friend had a baby girl late Wednesday night. Please wlecome Brooke Catherine. I’ve been thinking of something to knit for this baby for some time and just need to do it!
Have a great weekend!
My great plans to knit during lunch were foiled by a crossword puzzle. I love crossword puzzles almost as much as knitting. Since concentration (and relative quiet) were key to knitting and not missing another yarn over, I helped with the puzzle.
Brought my knitting with me today so I’m hoping I can work on it during lunch…again.
My camera was giving me fits last night. I managed to take a few pictures of the sweater-in-progress but the card reader on the computer wouldn’t recognize the photos to download. Maybe I can post those pictures tonight.
Ah, tonight… Even though Mr. Aitch doesn’t allow like me to use the oven when it’s above 70 degrees, I will be making white chocolate macadamia nut cookies tonight. (I substitute white chocolate chips and add 1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts.) His church is having a bake sale this weekend and I begrudgingly volunteered to make something. The dough is resting in the fridge as we speak just waiting for me when I get home from work. The church will get three dozen cookies and I will keep the rest for the weekend festivities.
My daughter and her family (best SIL in the world, twin 17-month girls, and two dogs) will be coming for the weekend and there’s nothing like being greeted with fresh white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
Yes, Mr. Aitch and I go to separate churches. He’s the choir director at a Methodist church and I am catholic and go to a catholic church. I do attend services with him sometimes though we never get to sit together since he is directing the choir. No, I don’t sing well.
So along with baking cookies and knitting, I will have to do some clean up around the house tonight. Busy, busy.
