Table Talk : Cookies

Yay its Friday and I am ready for the weekend! And if you do anything this weekend let it be making these cookies! I (Adie too) cannot stop eating them! I am forever hooked and just might never eat another chocolate chip cookie, they are that good! I lived in Utah for eight years and never once had a swig cookie and now I know why! I would have been there every day maybe twice a day depending on how good the little people were that day. You probably have everything you need in your cupboard (I needed more flour and cream of tarter which expired two years ago). I grabbed strawberry frosting since let's be honest I have two little people and making cookies is already messy so I took the easy route for frosting and I am not complaining. I definitely think this will be my new go to cookie for everything. Neighbors, friends, the guy at Jack in the Box who always gives me extra ice in my drink just like I ask. (Nothing is worse than no ice or two cubes, a forever battle Eric and I argue). 

This afternoon we put Aden in his high chair, he's learning to eat those little puffs for babies so the five thousand on the floor didn't matter. Adie loves to help mix the dough and she even insisted on rolling them into almost round balls so we could press them before putting them in the oven. Seriously the easiest recipe and cookie making if you want to bake with your little toddlers. Adie thinks this is breakfast, lunch and dinner ... pretty hard to disagree with her.

I did some major Pinteresting, looking for the perfect swig cookie recipe and I snagged it from Lil' Luna and these are perfect for Easter coming up, you can use yellow, purple and blue frosting and it's Spring for dessert or like Adie, for breakfast. We are headed back to SLC for Aunt Trina's wedding and will (finally) have to try a swig cookie and see how they compare and why everyone is obsessed. We have been practicing being the flower girl, walking (Aden) he wants to so bad and I am ready for both babies to be in bed, I rented Netflix and need to catch up on my #tgit shows and work on my lesson for Adie's Sunday school again and making sure my phone still works after Adie baseball threw it off the lodge. #ineedanewoneanyway
