Lola is coordinating the district spelling bee. She participated in it for years. She even moved on to the regional bee more than once. Last year the coordinator decided to resign and I asked her if she would enjoy organizing the event she participated in for so many years. The bee is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 21st. We still need to make the # tags for the contestants & judges gifts. Refreshments are available after the bee.
Our family will contribute Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Rounds. I modified the recipe by adding 3 oz. of cool melted unsweetened chocolate. Just stir it in after the egg and butter.
By making the dough today, baking will be a breeze on the day of the bee. After a brief stay in the frig, it is ready to be cut into easy cookie size pieces. Then the dough will go in the freezer and is all ready to just break apart and put on the oven. Cooking instructions along with the cookbook page are written on scratch paper and in the bag.
Between laundry, exercising, and making up the cookie dough, I managed to work on some hand quilting. Check out the great swirls. Can't wait to finish this project. Some of the swirls are to large to leave. I am planning on starting the swirls going the other direction. This project was put on hold for awhile. Lost the darn thread. Just hate it when you know you put it in a safe place....you just can't remember where that place is! Thank you to my quilting buddies girlfriend. Yes, through the grapevine I ended up with 2 new spools of matching thread. Still haven't been able to find it in town, but I am back to quilting!
