Cookies are always a fun thing to make.  It is one of the few things I can get my son in the kitchen to help me make.  I think he really just likes to lick the batter, and will do what it takes to have that chance. What can you do?!  With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I am taking full advantage and getting my son to help me. Malt Chocolate Chip Whopper Cookies was exactly what it took to get him excited.  He loves whoppers, so it was an easy choice to add them to our cookies!

The weekend is almost here!  And it is a long weekend!  After 2 solid weeks of school, I think we are ready for the break.  I am not sure what we have planned, if anything yet.  We talked about going up into the mountains, but our friends are out of town. We might just make a day trip and go on a hike, we will see.  I do know that we will be breaking out the smoker and making some ribs at some point.  My husband gave me an awesome thermometer that I am dying to try out!  Yes, I was excited about a thermometer.  Yes, apparently I am old.  When did that happen?

I can not believe that we only have a few weeks until summer break is here.  It is a busy couple of weeks as well.  My 10 year old starts baseball this week, so our weeknights just got busier.  This weekend I am also going to attempt to have a garage sale.  I have not had a garage sale in years, and can’t remember ever having one by myself.  I have a pile in the basement of stuff that needs to go, but aside from that I haven’t really started getting ready for the sale yet.  Could be interesting.  I debated about also having food or drinks to sell (last time we made cookies and the kids had such a good time selling them), but not sure how that will work out.  If I do, I think it will have to be these Double Chocolate Cookies, because who could say no to them?

The absolute hardest part about being away from home for 6 weeks on vacation is being back home.  Seriously, getting back into work, cooking, cleaning, and being responsible again is hard work.  Not to mention the crazy 18 hour time zone change.  That has finally worked itself out, but not without some difficulties.  My 10 year old had a hard time adjusting, partly because he was also super excited to get back to school, but that in turn meant that he was keeping me up.  Running on 4 hours sleep doesn’t really do much for motivation either, so it has been a rough transition! But I did actually bake this week and made some amazing cookies!

Sunday is the day of the big game!  Are you having a get together?  My husband is too mad that the Packers lost, so we aren’t doing much of anything.  We will hang out the 3 of us, have a few snacks and watch the game.  But that is about it.  I thought about trying to convince him we needed to have a few friends over, but then I would have to clean my house, and be on the ball.   I am feeling kind of lazy lately, so that seemed like kind of a lot to ask.  A family night sounds good to me!
