Yummy, Less Fat Cookies!

I have made Toll House Cookies for many, many years. They are always yummy and gone in a day or so. The recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter/marjarine. About 15 years ago I started to only put in one stick of butter. The cookies were great! Recently, I cut out a few more tablespoons of butter only putting in 6 tablespoons as opposed to the full 8. The cookies still turn out great. I add the full 2 1/4 cups of flour. You can find the full recipe on the back of the Nestle brand Chocolate Chips, (and usually on the back of any brand of chocolate chips.)
Here is the dough:
Here are the finished cookies:That's what works for me!

Goolash Recipe

This recipe came from my Aunt Riita. She taught my mom, my mom taught me...I will now share it with you!

For my family of 6 at home, these are my portions:

8 bags of BEEF Top Ramen
7 medium zucchini - peeled, cut in half lengthwise and cut chunky
1 pound cooked/browned ground beef
About 4 cups of water

In large sauce pan, put the water, then crumble up the Top Ramen, put the noodles in the pan. Add the cooked/browned ground beef. Open all the season packets, add to the pot, stir. Add the chunked up zucchini (they are raw).

Put the heat on high (how I like to cook). Cover. Let cook for about 3 - 4 minutes. Check and stir. When it is done, the noodles are cooked, there is not much liquid. This is NOT a soup. If you find you need more liquid to cook the noodles, add it; just not too much. You many need to check and stir a few times. Suddenly the zucchini will be cooked.

Very yummy.

This is what is left in the pot after the first servings. The pot was mostly empty by the time everyone finished.

You Can Do These!

My dad sent this list to me. I loved it! I knew I wanted to share it. I hope you all enjoy these tips also:

Ezra Taft Benson’s 10 Suggestions for Successful Parenting

“Thinking of the example of his own mother and that of his beloved and faithful wife, Flora, President Benson has offered ten specific suggestions for mothers as they guide their precious children:

1. Take time to always be at the crossroads in the lives of your children, whether they be six or sixteen.
2. Take time to be a real friend to your children.
3. Take time to read to your children. Remember what the poet wrote:You may have tangible wealth untold; Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be— I had a mother who read to me.
4. Take time to pray with your children.
5. Take time to have a meaningful weekly home evening. Make this one of your great family traditions.
6. Take time to be together at mealtimes as often as possible. (my personal note: It has been proven that your children WILL be smarter if you eat toghether as a family!)
7. Take time daily to read the scriptures together as a family.
8. Take time to do things together as a family.
9. Take time to teach your children.
10.Take time to truly love your children. A mother’s unqualified love approaches Christlike love.

Sweet Treat

Chex Muddy Buddies....

Ever had them?

They are very delightful and easy to make:

9 cups Chex cereal - I like the Rice Chex
6 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Measure cereal into a large bowl. Set aside.

Microwave Chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine, uncovered, on high for about 1 minute. Stir. If needed, microwave 30 seconds longer until mixture is smooth. Stir often, chocolate can burn easily.

Stir in vanilla.

Pour chocolate mixture over Chex, stirring until everything is evenly coated.

Sprinkle powdered sugar over chocolate Chex, stirring constantly until well coated.

Tip: To Do List

I really like making my To Do lists.

It takes all my "things" off my mind and on to a piece of paper. I don't have to remember any of it. And it is delightful to cross something off your list.

I always put a fun picture on my list. I have put up my To Do list on the day before I broke my leg, when everything changed. I took a road I was NOT planning on.

I keep all my To Do lists on my computer, so if I ever wonder what I was doing a month ago, 6 months ago, I can look and see.

Try it!
