damn tuesday

This morning started out wicked awesome.  I made it to school early with the guys and then get flagged by a parent that said - gees your tire is sure flat.  (enter the f-word - quietly) And so I drop everybody off and deal with it like everything else... and 16 minutes later I was back on the road.  (Yes, that is a new record and I could have probably shaved time off if I hadn't been trying to be careful and not cover my tan pants in tire dirt and brake crap.)

Long day.

But we did manage to make cookies tonight.

1 cup of margarine, 3/4 cup white sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar - mix together - or use the wooden spoon like it is a knife and stab the crap out of it like Michael tried to do.

And then he got into mixing... hooray.

Add 1 tsp of baking soda - mix some more.

Add one egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla (or a little more if you are like me and like vanilla)
Then add in 1 1/2 cup (ish) of chocolate chips - we used semi sweet and white ones tonight.

Then add 2 1/2 cups of flour until everything is all happy and blended together. 
And then - you too - can have yummy cookies like us.

Oven temp 375, bake for 10-12 minutes

And where is Kyle in all these photos... well tonight he decided he didn't want to eat what was for dinner and was pissy about everything at dinner - so he sat out for a while and missed making cookies... he did, however, get a few cookies later after he got over the dinner issue.

Kyle also learned a valuable less about bike helmets today.  A girl in her class has just about lost her face and most of her teeth because she went biking without a helmet and hit a bump.  I was shocked at how much damage she had, how many stitches and teeth gone - it was like something out of a Stephen King novel.  This should also be a lesson for all the grown ups too - she will heal - us old people don't heal as well... wear a helmet. Do it!  This has been a public service announcement brought to you by the letters G, F and Y. 

Night friends - xo
