I find it so hard to believe that it's already mid-September. Time is really flying and there's been little time for blogging or crafting lately.
I'm so busy at work that by the time I get home, I don't want to do much of anything, yet there's always so much to do to prepare for the next day. Since I like to keep tins of baked goods on my desk at school, I do try to make time for baking at least a couple of times a week.
Bite-sized oatmeal cookies: 1/2 cup butter softened; 1/4 cup brown sugar; 1/4 cup granulated sugar; 3/4 tsp baking powder; 1/2 tsp baking soda; 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon; 1/4 tsp salt; 1/8 tsp ground allspice; 1 egg; 1 tsp vanilla; 3/4 cup flour, 1 cup quick cooking oats; 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips; 1/3 cup dried cranberries. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake til golden.
All the baking makes my boss and co-workers very happy!
Blueberry muffins: 1/4 cup canola oil; 1/2 cup honey; 1/2 cup skimmed milk; 1 egg; 1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour; 2 tsps baking powder; 1/4 tsp salt; 1 TBS lemon juice, lemon zest, 1/2 cup blueberries.
Haven't made much progress on the baby blanket. The good news is that little Emma Rachel was able to go home a few days ago, so I really need to get this blanket done soon.
The other good news is that I received an email today from Helen Phillips informing me that I won a prize in her recent giveaway. Her work is so lovely and she always has such pretty things to share on her blog.
I hope you've all had a good week!
Happy weekend wishes,
