So, what did the boys want to do with the women away?
They wanted to bake cookies.
Tyler likes eating cookies too and is willing to help, but I think he thought he had to help so I wouldn't tell him he couldn't have any. Actually, Tyler is going to a birthday party today. His peanut allergy is unfortunately going to prevent him from having the cake, so he is going to bring some cookies to have instead of cake. We could stop by the store and get him something, but home-made cookies just seem better.
Anyway, the boys had fun making the cookies. I helped and supervised, but I would call this "their" batch more than I would call it "our" batch.
And, I have to say, those cookies turned out awesome. Very yummy.
The recipe we picked was Chocolate Chip "drop" Cookies from our "Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book". This "New" cookbook is in fact pretty old. There is a note from Tracy's grandma in 1989, which probably means it was a high-school graduation gift to my wife. It is also tragically falling apart. I think we might have to spring for a new "New Cook Book" at some point.
