My son suggested making a skillet for dinner. It consisted of fried potatoes with green peppers, onions, diced ham, bacon, tomato, green onions, scrambled eggs and cheese.

Purple Corn Flakes

I had seen these at Trader Joe's and had to try them. It is made with organic blue corn and brown rice.

I have corn flakes all the time, these are a little tougher in texture than I am use to, but not bad. I will likely not get these again.

Simple Toast

Just adding cinnamon and sugar to buttered toast is a simple way to feed a craving for cinnamon.

We spent a few days visiting my daughters in Kansas.

We left early on Sunday, ran into fog on the way down.

My grandson wanted to play a version of checkers where the red pieces were on the red squares and the black pieces were on the black squares. It made for an interesting game.

My daughter showed off a Game of Thrones pop up book.

I had waffles for breakfast.

Ended the trip with some mini fried ice cream.

Zucchini Noodles

I found pre-made zucchini noodles at the store and I had to try it.

I did mix the the zucchini noodles with regular spaghetti noodles. I was thinking there wasn't going to be enough for everyone. I was also thinking that my family was going to be turned off by veggie noodles. I thought it was tasty. Next time I would like to make my own noodles, but I don't have the tools to make veggie noodles.

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

My daughter Ashley had modified a soft sugar cookie recipe into a chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This cookie has been a big hit. It does take more like a sugar cookie to me.

So here is the recipe

3/4 cup (6 oz) butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
6 oz chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 t salt

1. Mix butter and sugars until fluffy.
2. Add egg, beat until incorporated.
3. Stir in egg yolk and vanilla until combined.
4. Scrapping the sides, add the chocolate chips, flour, baking soda, and salt.
5. Bake 8-12 minutes.
