Menu Plan Monday, Friends.
Getting crazier by the minute over here in the Bettelli household.
Some fun stuff coming up this week, but it doesn't leave a whole lot of time for cooking.
Monday - out to eat wherever George picks (within reason).
This is his Advent activity for the day, so we will oblige.
Tuesday - pork chops on the grill, rice, broccoli
Wednesday - @ church
Thursday - Taco night with all the fixin's & yellow rice with black beans
Friday - We will be in Disney:)
Saturday - @ a birthday party for our nephew in Vero Beach
Sunday - @ a church Christmas party with friends
Last week I did manage to get a few Christmas cookies in the oven.
I made a new cookie recipe, and my whole family seemed to love them.
I am going to be nice and share the recipe with you.
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies:
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
In separate bowl, mix:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
Add dry ingredients to wet ones & mix well
Pour 12 oz bag of chocolate chips in mixture, & stir together
Refrigerate at least 2 hours (very important and very annoying at the same time).
Roll into balls, then roll in 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Bake @ 350 degrees for 9 1/2 minutes (I had to bake longer, but I think my balls were bigger than they should have been. FYI).
Here is the finished product:
Have you done any baking lately?
It really is therapeutic.
