finished cleaning and baking cookies
This isn't the greatest photo but it was taken with my zoom lens from my kitchen window. It is the first
'Jack' of the year. You can see another new plant starting just to the left of it.
Today my art quilters' group is coming so I finished cleaning and baked 2 batches of cookies yesterday.
I tried to print from my new laptop and there was no printer listed in my computer. I had specifically asked the 'geek' whether my network wireless printer would still work from my new laptop even if the desktop computer died. He said yes but the answer was really no. I had to uninstall the link he had put in and reinstall the printer software and have it connect to my network. It was successful but the batch of cookies I was mixing at the same time wasn't. I had the butter in the mixer bowl softening, but forgot to add the half a stick of Crisco. I kept thinking the batter looked funny but didn't figure it out until after I had added the chocolate chips. I started baking them anyway (low fat cookies!) but after 3 trays I tried one and decided the rest of the batter wasn't worth saving. They were about equal to grocery store packaged cookies. My friends know I can bake better cookies than that so I started over again. So much for mulit-tasking.
