Yummy.............






Yesterday...

Among other things...Miss V and I baked up a few cookies...

I followed Deb's recipe..she is at Just Cats in my sidebar...lovely blog...

But...Miss V and I decided to add some butterscotch chips as well...

Oh my dear...they were delicious...and chewy...just the way I like them!

Thanks Deb...such an easy recipe too!!

We kept ourselves busy all day!! Planting...raking...sweeping...gluing...

Had a wonderful day...

Will show you the planter we potted up soon...

Hope you all had a great day...I am anxious for my boyfriend to come home...

That hideous fire is creeping ever closer to where he is...

I cannot imagine what those poor people are going thru...

I have been watching it on the tv on and off all day... 

And...it doesn't seem to be getting any better...so tragic...

Keep Alberta in your thoughts...

            Enjoy your evening...

                  Cheers!  :o)

  5. Glad you enjoyed them Linda. V looks so cute mixing away. Such concentration. :)I just baked up a batch of blueberry muffins today. There is no doubt I will never be size 8 again. lol
    I have been upset about the fires, too. What could be more devastating. Can you just imagine leaving behind everything near and dear to you. :( Heartbreaking.

  7. I try to stay away from the news but I keep tuning in to watch the fire. It is unfathomable. All we can do is pray for rain.

  8. Those cookies look so tasty. I've never added butterscotch chips to anything... and now I will!
    The fires. So tragic. My brother lived in Alberta for 25+ years and I have friends and family there. Was watching some of the footage last night. Just terrible. I have made a donation and I know thousands of others have, too. Canadians always rally!
    Hope bf makes it home safely. xo

      Fingers crossed he doesn't get stalled in Edmonton...they are rerouting flights and sending lots of people to Edmonton....

  9. Yes, poor Alberta! It's been in our news, too! They need tons of rain to help stop that!

  10. Oh, Linda, I didn't realize that the BF's business trip was in Alberta. I feel awful for every one living through this tragedy and hoping for rain! I just baked oatmeal/apple streusel muffins for my visit to the grandkids tomorrow, used applesauce and yogurt instead of sugar, less guilt! :) Hope the BF gets home without any flight delays.

  11. It's not just the worst nature-related disaster in Alberta's history but in all of Canada's as well. The only thing that will stop it is heavy rain and there's none in the forecast. The fire won't run out of fuel anytime soon because northern Alberta is wall-to-wall trees.

  12. Yummy cookies indeed. Love adding butterscotch chips too. The cookies look wonderful. I made a batch of chocolate chip...the favorite of the children here at the Villa. Plain choc. chip no nuts. So that's what I made. Gotta keep the kids happy!!! I had the leftover apple pie.....

  14. What a great little cook is Miss V, and you are setting her up for a lifetime love of the kitchen.
    I saw film of the Canadian fires on TV tonight - what a dreadful event, a huge disaster. They said thousands of people are displaced. So sorry for all those people, and hope they are cared for. And that your man comes safely home this weekend :)

  15. You are baking wonderful memories, as well as delicious cookies, with Miss V. Fingers crossed your boyfriend is home soon.

  16. I thought about making cookies with my grandbabies yesterday, but then I remembered there are three of them and the bickering over who gets to sit where or stir or add this and that... and I decided it might be easier to bake without them and just let them enjoy the fruits of my labor. Maybe that's why so many Grandma's just keep a staff of cookies handy.

  17. Sweet, sweet granny . . .
    Miss V will always remember "baking days" . . . I am sure . . .
    I wonder what she is thinking when she looks at those little butterscotch morsels!
    Tragic and sad . . . the fires . . .
    Hope your boyfriend arrives back home very soon!
