our newest family addition….
YAY!! She arrived Tuesday afternoon and although it was touch & go there for awhile, (installation horrors) she is now up & running & doing us proud 🙂
( I obviously still need to paint behind where the previous stove had a higher backsplash)
Her first special job was to bake off some chocolate chip cookies, but due to the length of her arrival, I had to hold the dough overnight & just make our planned dinner, chicken parmesan.
Ok, so this was not THE chicken parm that I made Tuesday night, ( same recipe, however) this is a picture from the birthday dinner that I made for Scott’s 40th ‘space themed’ party ( he was born 10 days after man first walked on the moon. Had he arrived those measly 10 days earlier, he could have gone to space camp for free.)
He has talked about this for his whole life, so we threw him a space party.
Here is the cake that Ali baked & decorated for him
Anyway…. I will post my chicken parm recipe soon, with photos as it is definitely a favorite here 🙂
I baked the cookies the next day & they came out perfect.
Basic chocolate chip cookies :
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup oats
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
preheat oven to 350
They baked beautifully!
