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!

Are you ready for the weekend?  Stupid question.  Sorry.  My son has his last basketball game of the season tomorrow morning.  We also have a friend flying in from Iowa for the weekend.  We haven’t seen him in over a year, so it should be fun to catch up and just hang out for the weekend.  The guys are going to go to a hockey game on Saturday night, so I have to come up with something fun to do with my son.  The game is in Denver at 8pm, so that is a little late for a 9 year old. Maybe a fun dinner and a movie, we will see.  What do you do with your kids for special nights?

Fun Halloween Treats - a round up of great Halloween ideas

Are you ready for Halloween?  It is less than a week away!!  We still need to carve our pumpkins, figure out who we are trick or treating with and where, and I still have to make a rope belt.  But we are close.  Darn all the last minute stuff!  I was really hoping to have our pumpkins carved by this weekend, but we have just been so busy.  I am actually in Ohio right now, last weekend my in-laws were here, and my parents were visiting before that.   Hopefully one night this week we can get it done.  We often do them on Halloween night.  But my husband’s company does a fun trick or treat thing for the kids right after school, and my son wants to go this year.  So time to get my butt in gear, and get some stuff done!

Today I am sharing with you a few of my favorite Halloween ideas.  Cute brownies, cookies, drinks, and snacks.  Great for a Halloween party at school, the day of, or just for fun this week!  Hope you find something that you enjoy!

Angel Crisp Cookies


Angel Crisp Cookies - Cookies Grandma used to make!

Angel Crisp Cookies - Cookies Grandma used to make!

I have to say, I am really enjoying our first week with no camps or anything going on. It is nice to spend time with my son, and relax a little. Get a little work done, for both of us, in the morning and then hit the pool or something else fun in the afternoon.  He had a great time at his camps, and he said he wished they could go on longer, but I really think he likes these kind of summer days as well.  It is a shame we couldn’t have spaced out his camps some, but such is life.

Angel Crisp Cookies - a favorite from Grandma!

Do you have those recipes that have been passed down from your grandma, and that you remember your mom making as a kid?  These angel crisp cookies are one of those in my family.  I never realized what the name of them was, so when my mom was talking about them recently I was very confused.  So she sent me the recipe, and I made them.  As soon as they came out of the oven, based on the shape alone I remember these cookies.  They did not happen often as a kid, because my dad pretty much only liked chocolate desserts.  But I do remember angel crisps were even served the day of my wedding for lunch with my bridesmaids.

Angel Crisp Cookies - A classic cookie that is straight from my Grandma

The original recipe, and the way I wrote it below calls for shortening instead of butter.  That is what my grandma used all of the time, so that is how I make these cookies.  BUT, I know there are people who are against shortening for whatever reason.  You can use butter in its place, they will just taste a little different.  They will still be soft, tender, and delicious, so no worries there.  A few times my mom even frosted these cookies, or just drizzled with a little glaze.  I might have spread Nutella on a couple of mine :)
