First I want to say that I don’t think Dave or I will claim either way of the coin as regards to being a democrat or republican. We really are not party people we are more just people people. Does that make sense?
Dave was out of town last Saturday for the Republican Primaries and so he went and voted today during the Democratic primaries. Wish I would have done that myself! I am so not impressed with anyone right now on the republican ticket and am still doing my own research as to who I really feel I want support in the future. It’s just frustrating. I hate politics.
So I am at a birthday party at Chucky Cheese today for a girl in Emma’s school class. Christian school that is. Dave stayed behind with Izzie to meet up with me later. While he heads to meet up with me he stops and votes and they give him a sticker that says I voted. So he wears it. And he walks into the birthday party with it on. You would have thought he was Satan. I laughed when I saw it and said “babe… everyone here is going to think you are a democrat and I don’t think that is a good thing.” He said he knew that and that is why he wanted to wear it. We had another laugh and ignored the glares the rest of the party.
People are interesting aren’t they? I bet half the people there don’t even think past a political party. The basic issues are important… yes but I won’t be casting my vote on one issue. It’s the person that matters and that is who I’ll be investigating.
If you are really into politics just brush me aside. I’m not and I’m just putting my non political thoughts on the table.
I have the most awesome cookie receipe that I’d like to pass along:
THE NEIMAN MARCUS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE
1/2 C. Butter, softened
1 C brown sugar
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 3/4 C flour
1 1/2 t. instant espresson powder, slightly crushed
8 oz. semisweet choc. chips
cream butter w/ sugars til fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingred. and beat into the butter mixture. Stir in choc chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, or 10-12 min. for crispier cookies.
These will WOW your friends! They are awesome. Makes 12 Large Cookies. Try the dark chocolate chips for a richer taste.
by the way in that receipe it should read “Espresso powder” not espression powder — that could make a BIG difference????
