Got milk?

Cuz I am sharing a new, made-it-up-off-the-top-of-my-head cookie recipe here, for those of you that are cookie lovers.  Not sure what to call them except YUMMY!

Preheat oven to 375.
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 C. sugar
3/4 C. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 full C. all purpose flour
1 C. chopped pecans
1 12 oz. bag butterscotch chips
Beat together butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add the baking soda, salt and cinnamon, mixing in thoroughly.  Add the flour, 1 cup at a time until smooth.  Mix in pecans and butterscotch chips.
Drop by teaspoon full onto  ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake about 13-14 minutes until golden brown.  Remove quickly from cookie sheet to cooling rack or paper towel to finish cooling.  ENJOY! 
I think it’s the cinnamon that does the trick – these turned out really yummy.  So Yummy Butterscotch Drops it is!   This is what happens when you WANT oatmeal raisin, but have no oatmeal, so change your mind to chocolate chip, only to discover what you thought were chocolate chips in the cupboard were really butterscotch.  So I improvised!

Now onto other not so yummy parts of the blog post – we’re in the midst of sump pump pipe back up into the basement again.  Sink gurgling, icky water dumping from somewhere onto the washer, and the floor-instead of into the pump and outside.  I am so glad that I didn’t start laundry while hubby was hunting this morning – because I wouldn’t know what to do.   Unfortunately this means a call to the Roto-rooter guy – on a weekend.   Not so yummy.

Just one little bead project to show you this time around.  Haven’t really beaded a whole lot – between my shift at the gallery yesterday, which it turned out is actually closed (I just did check out of artists work from the Holiday Market) – but was 2 hours longer than I expected, and just plain laziness.
But here is what I’m going to call “Saloon Girl” – a part of the Just Pendants line – giving buyers their choice of ribbon or cord – or none – when they purchase.

Very simple.  Very ‘saloon girl’ish”, don’t you think?  Just $30 INCLUDING RIBBON.  Simple and quick, and pretty.

Hope your day is going well.  Ours was great until the water started rushing in.  We may be using our Bravo Italiano gift card sooner than expected – because now I may not be able to use water anymore today.  So no cooking.  Which would normally be a YAY! – but for the reason behind it – not so much.
Peaceful beading,
