Cookies, Downton Abbey, and Valentines...
These cookies were yummy.
They didn't last a day.
Some of the fat is replaced with applesauce...now if I could replace some of the sugar that would be a win, win. I have heard that frozen orange juice concentrate could work for that...I must Google it. I think that subing out half of the regular flour for whole wheat would work well too. They are soft and a little cake like, which I adore.
I got caught up on Downton Abbey this afternoon...love that DVR! There is some good discussion going on over here. So much to think about...so many twists. I am over the moon that this show will continue into a 3rd season...however, there had better be some happy endings for some of the characters is all I can say.
Tomorrow is Valentine making with the kids. I did break down and buy a store bought package for each of the kids as I was informed at story time last week that each child would need to bring 15 each, including a treat...45 more handmade valentines were just not going to happen. However, the kids and I will be making some cute ones for Elijah's pre-school class and for close friends and family. It's one of the things I look forward to doing every year and I start planning what we will do as soon as Christmas is over. Somehow it has turned into a tradition that I hope will continue for a long, long time.
