It’s Saturday and I think a simple lunch is suitable for our guests coming today.
I made turkey and cheese on little buns from Walmart
Ham and cheese on croissants from Aldi
Mustard and mayonnaise for each person to add as desired
A bowl of chips- Poppables and 2 kinds of Sun Chips
Fresh cantaloupe, strawberries and red grapes
Beverages will be iced tea, lemonade and water.
I have both the coffee maker and tea maker loaded and ready to turn on if anyone wants a hot beverage afterward.
Paper plates, cups, utensils and napkins will also be used - they are only used when we’re hosting a group
The cookies are a recipe that I’ve been making since 2012. They stir up quickly, no mixer needed.
I make as the recipe says but I omit the raisins, use extra cinnamon and usually use vegetable oil and plain Greek yogurt. I know those sound odd for cookies but if you read the recipe, you’ll see.
I made these cookies earlier this week and took them to my parents when my brother and 5 grands were there. Everyone enjoyed them. One grandson said “Grandma, I know what job you should get when you get a job, you should be a chef”.
I have zero plans to look for a job but I do think I’ll bake cookies for my grandchildren more often.
