Well friends, it’s the holiday season again. Out of curiosity today I actually did go out on Black Friday to see what a store or two looked like and if any of the deals were worth it. I got about as far as the craft store before I started to feel suffocated by the mass of humanity and decided to exit the premises.
So back at the ranch, the day was pseudo-productive due to a combination of making no-bake cookies and acquiring free furniture.
First off – Cookies! We actually called these Boiled Cookies growing up. They are magically delicious and crazy easy to make. Here is the recipe I used:
Once this is mixed up I also let it sit in the pot to cool the teeniest bit before putting onto the wax paper, and then once it’s on the the pan it goes straight into the fridge/freezer to get them to cool and harden faster.
Next! Walking the dog yields awesome find! A few people on our street have been moving out recently, and what with the pain in the neck of moving large objects ANYWHERE except across the room, they’ve gone through the usual stages of: 1. Listing items they can’t move on Craigslist in the hopes of getting some money for them. 2. Approaching moving day and lowering prices to either $5 or just straight giving away stuff to anyone walking by. and then 3. Giving up completely, putting nice but inconvenient items by the side of the road, and then running away (That’s how I’VE done it once or twice in the past anyway..). Turns out somebody on our block had gotten to Option 3, and left this:
Finally!: I created a make-shift wine glass holder. We are bangin’ on all cylinders now.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
