What's gotten into me?

I feel a sick coming on. Tickly throat...minor achiness....but yet, when I get home from work, what do I do? This.

I make up a new recipe for dinner! Viola! It's pretty good! (chicken dipped in butter, then rolled in a bread crumb/dry ranch dressing mix, then wrapped in bacon and topped with colby jack cheese. I baked it on top whole green beans and made cornbread muffins for the side. Hubby loved it!)Okay...so then you'd think I'd stop and try to rest and get better. "NOT I!" said the cow. Grace & I decided to make our favorite chocolate chunk & heath toffee cookies....(recipe below).

And now, instead of resting since Gracie is asleep.....I blog. I surrender. There's no hope for me......the sick will win. I just hope it wins after 4 pm on weekdays because the dredded TAKS TEST (the first of three) is next week! Prayers are needed.......

Enjoy the recipe! They are good!

Chocolate Chunk/Toffee Cookies

3/4 c. butter crisco
3/4 c. light brown sugar
2 T milk
1 T vanilla
Mix together, then add
1 egg and mix well again.

In a separate bowl, mix:
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt

Stir in flour mixture just until blended then add:
1 cup chocolate chunks
1/2 cup toffee bits (heath)

Drop by the rounded tsp. and bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes. Do NOT overbake....in fact, I pull them out when they look almost done & let them cook more while cooling!

You're amazing! That meal looks way better than the frozen pizza we had that night......
