I Know, I Know

I know, my sister's here so my pics should be of all the fun we're having. The only problem is that Kev has our digital camera, and I can't put film in my SLR because 1) someone wants to borrow it later this week and I don't want to rush to use up a roll before then and 2) it'll do me no good today anyway because I don't have a dark room.

Anyway, this picture of Maddie is so precious you won't mind that it's not my sister and me having loads of fun. I took it with my cell phone a few weeks ago, so please forgive the pixels.

And this is little Maddie-poo sleeping on the back of the couch. Since I moved it closer to the window she's taken a serious liking to sitting on the back cushions. She stares out the window and growls at absolutely nothing.

In other news, I made the most amazing Pumpkin Choc Chip Cookies yesterday and Soph, our brother and I have literally eaten over half of the 2.5 dozen I made. They are so good. Please allow me to share the recipe with you:

1 C canned pumpkin puree
1 C granulated sugar
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 egg
2 C all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
(and I chose to add 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp nutmeg too)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
1 T vanilla extract
2 C chocolate chips (I like to use milk choc even though the recipe called for semi-sweet)

First, combine the pumpkin puree, sugar, oil and egg.
In a second bowl, combine the flour, the baking powder, the cinnamon, ginger, nutmet and salt.
Dissolve the baking soda in the milk, then add the the flour mixture.
Next, mix the flour mixture and the pumpkin mixture.
Add vanilla and chocolate chips and mix well.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet (I used a 1/8 cup for good-sized cookies) and bake for roughly 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

You'll love them. They're delicious. They're cake-like and moist and FULL of chocolate chips. I wish I could show you pictures. Maybe next time. Which will probably be next weekend. After the turkey and the pumpkin pies settle.
