Since Bob is taking a class on Monday nights, I decided some quality girl time with Emily was much needed! We have had such a fun time! We babysat all day Monday, took the kids swimming where I had a blast helping the 5 year-old NOT to be terrified of the ‘deep water’. Last night we watched the Bachelor and it was so fun to have someone to chat with and complain about the girls with instead of watching the show alone! This morning we went shopping at my favorite second-hand store near her house.
Emily found this for me at one of the consignment shops! Absolutely PERFECT and I can’t wait to wear it next season!
Talk about a great few days!
Emily had brought Snickerdoodle Bread over to our house a few weeks ago and I about died after I ate it….it was SOOO good! Paula Deen would approve of the butter content…and My Fitness Pal was very generous in dishing out calorie points, but definitely worth every bit!
(the key ingredient that I just had to sample before we started)
Here’s the recipe: (she found it here)
2 1/2 c. flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup butter (YES 1 cup)
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sour cream
1 package cinnamon chips (Hershey’s makes these)
the Topping = 3 tablespoons each sugar and cinnamon mixed
Cream butter, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Add vanilla and sour cream
Mix flour and baking powder
Add cinnamon chips
Put into bread pans of your choice
Cover with toppings
Bake at 350 degrees for 35ish minutes (we ended up baking them much longer though)
(this was after I licked the batter bowl clean)
Like always, we had fun baking together!
