It’s Cold!

It is Friday and  the high temperature today has been a whopping 20 degrees!  We are having comfort food for dinner ~~ Soup and Cookies!

Potato and Carrot Soup with Cheddar Cheese is easy to make.  The recipe is here.  It is at the bottom of the post.  Garnish with sour cream, grated cheese and sliced scallions.  Yes, we will probably have a salad to go with this, before we eat these:


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 and 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon soda

3 cups “old fashioned” oats

1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together the butter and sugars for 2 minutes.  Add the eggs, one at a time and the vanilla and beat well.  In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda.  Stir this into the butter mixture.  Sitr in the oats by hand, incorporating them well in the dough.  Add the chocolate chips.  Form into small balls, place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Enjoy warm, with milk, on a cold night!


Have a great weekend!
