Too close for comfort

Because the supply looked pretty low, I actually measured out the flour before I mixed up anything else for a batch of cookies, and this was all that was left – definitely cutting it close.

Phew!

Phew!

Himself was making pitiful noises recently about “regular chocolate chip cookies” (ie. nothing but chocolate chips) so I baked some yesterday, and tried out a new kitchen toy tool. The racks worked out fine for cookies, but I don’t think they’re sturdy enough for anything much heavier than cookies or cake.Β  new-racks

I also wanted to take some cookies when I took the cats in for their annual checkup/shots. The vet and the gals who work for her are all really nice, and take good care of the critters, so I like to take some goodies along occasionally. The cookies were well received. Understandably neither Amber (13+#) nor Maggie (~10.5#) was particularly happy about the visit, but they were ready to eat after we got home. Here they were waiting to be fed – what’s unusual is that they’re not usually quite this chummy πŸ™‚

We’ve had lots of neat evening skies lately – I liked weathervane against the clouds.
