Molasses Snickerdoodles

Molasses snickerdoodlesWe recently made the decision to rid our home of television.

Actually, what happened was that Robb wanted to do it, and I whined, cried, and threw a tantrum.  Because I'm kind of a tv addict.

I told the kids that I'm really happy with the situation, you know, to be a good family leader and stuff, but what I'm really thinking is how sad I am about missing the new seasons of The Office and Criminal Minds.  {And DO NOT spoil it for me... I'm going to find a way to watch them later.}

The kids have actually been great at inventing ways to amuse themselves.  They play a lot of board games, read a lot of books, and we've heard "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey on the piano at least 3 or 4 hundred thousand times.  (I'm starting to wish they'd go back to playing the Mario Brothers theme, if that tells you anything about how desperate the situation is.)

Today, they wanted to bake cookies.  "Great idea," I said.

The Hippie Chick told me she wanted to make a double batch, because our cookies are always in small batches and always gone too fast.  I reminded her of the reason for that situation.  I bake cookies every week.  We don't need a double batch.

But, her cookies, her rules.  She made a double batch.
