Gannon and I have become buddies more than ever. He’s here with me about three times a week. It’s just the two of us and we try to do a combination of some learning things…and some things I want to get done.
On this day our job was to do some baking. Gannon typically doesn’t like getting his picture taken so it takes a little convincing to get him to let me. This was mid-convincing.
What are we making? Chocolate Chip cookies. These are big-time a family favorite. All of the kids love these and when I make them, they are gone in a flash.
These are GREAT in the freezer. It makes a really big batch so I typically freeze a gallon size Ziplock bag and we eat the other Ziplock bag of cookies.
You can find the recipe HERE.
On this day I was using up miscellaneous chocolate chips I had. There were mini chocolate chips and semi-sweet and milk chocolate. Gannon was busy sorting them out.
…and of course, eating them.
I asked him if he would smile nicely for a picture that we could send to Uncle Karl and then tell him to stop by and have a cookie with us. This was Gannon’s nice smile…Anything for Uncle Karl.
He was in charge of putting the chocolate chips on. We were practicing the number fice. He was supposed to put five chocolate chips on each cookie.
I’ve been watching him and I’m almost certain he will be left-handed. Every day that goes by, it’s more and more apparent.
He was really eager for the cookies to come out of the oven.
After that, we made some Banana Bread. The day before one of my after-school girls saw my bananas and asked if I would make banana bread the next day.
HERE is a link for my Banana Bread recipe.
I tried to take a picture of Gannon licking the beaters but he was back to his “no pictures mode”.
So which would you pick for snack time? Banana Bread with butter or Chocolate Chip cookies? M&M cookies?? (the M&M cookies came about by putting M&Ms in the remaining dough after the chocolate chips ran out)
Oh…it’s a tough choice. Lucky me. I don’t have to choose as all of them are here and all are already made!!
