Cookie 2 & 3 and the Olive Oil Accident

I was trying to be a good daughter. I was making dinner and cookies at my moms while my mom, dad, and Andrew were shopping in Salt Lake. I was doubling the vegetarian lasagna so we could freeze one for the holidays. Savannah was happy as a clam in the pantry with the door closed. I decided to check on her. She had dumped a 2 liter bottle of olive oil all over the floor and was playing in it with kitchen utensils. She was also sitting in it and spreading it around with towels. Fun cleanup for me! Ironically, yesterday Matt asked Savannah if she was going to get into everything like Ryanne, or not so much, like Jonah. This might have been our answer.

My dad was in the cookie spirit too. He made a double batch of his mothers Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe and we used some of the cookies on our plates to give away too. cookie #3 was a stained glass sugar cookie. Make your fave sugar cookie and cut a shape in the middle. We made Christmas tree shapes. Bake for half the time and then add crushed up jolly ranchers to the shape in the middle. Bake for the remaining time and you have a pretty cookie to share!

Holy Smokes...that olive oil mess would have completely sent me over the edge! Glad it was you and not me. :)
