Daffodils

I love daffodils. They are my favorite spring flower. I have planted daffodils in every place I've lived that they allowed me to plant flowers. (And in some places where they didn't.) And in every place but one...I've moved before I saw them bloom. I'll probably never stop planting daffodils on the chance that I might be around in the spring. And I hope that I will never get tired of planting them for strangers.
 
Besides this weird daffodil planting disease, I also have a problem with recipes. My husband teases me about it...but we both know its a problem. I can NOT, for the life of me, use a recipe as it is written. I try...but at the last minute, when no one is looking... my hands move of their own free will and change it.  I tell them to stop, but they won't listen to me. Even macaroni and cheese. From a box. I can't do it.

These cookies are no exception. I got the recipe from Sugarbelle's blog. It is Sugarbakers Chocolate Chip Mini Chip Cookies. My husband said that the experimenting was okay this time. Because these are his favorite cookies ever. EVER. He likes them better than my chocolate cookies. Which made me a little sad in my heart, because as you know, I'm somewhat obsessed with those chocolate cookies.

It made me even more sad though when he and my child ate every last crumb within hours of them being finished.  Didn't they know I was going to LOOK at those cookies?! I'm sure it didn't help that I had paired the chocolate chip cookies with a white chocolate candy clay. Poor daffodils. They didn't stand a chance. Maybe I should look into purchasing some plastic flowers.

They are my 7 years olds absolute FAVORITE flower too. So thanks for making the world a little more beautiful by planting daffodils and I am definitely showing her these beautiful cookies in the morning. Hugs- Glora
