I was having so much fun and then, WHAM!! Monday sneaked in!! Drats. And, I was having such a lovely weekend!

Oh well, all good things must come to an end eventually! :)

Did all of you have a good weekend? If so, what did you do? I did some of this and some of that, but really didn't accomplish alot. I'm not sure why. Today, now, I have to really stop procrastinating and get some work done.

So, this is my plan for today:
  • Stop Procrastinating! Christmas IS coming!

  • Get sugar cookies made

  • Get presents wrapped that are hidden in the van (oops...hope daughter doesn't read this! HA!)

  • Finish steam cleaning son's bedroom carpet

  • Finish sending out Christmas cards

  • Get coupons and list ready for grocery shopping tomorrow

  • Take son to dr. appointment

  • Try and stay sane
There you have list for today. I wonder if I'll be able to get it accomplished!

Here is my favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe: Enjoy!!


1 cup sugar (I like to use 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar)
1 cup butter (can substitute margarine)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup vegetable oil (NOT olive oil!)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 1/8 cups flour

  1. Cream sugar, butter, powdered sugar, and oil.

  2. Then cream in eggs and vanilla.

  3. In a separate bowl mix baking soda, cream of tartar, and flour.

  4. Start adding dry ingredients to creamed ingredients less than 1 cup at a time.

  5. Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours.

  6. Drop 1-2" balls on the cookie sheet.

  7. If you would like, you can flatten the balls with the bottom of a drinking glass that has been dipped in sugar.

  8. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are browned.

You can also sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar, colored sugar sprinkles , etc.

This makes quite a large batch, so if you don't want as many, cut the recipe into 1/2.
