Well, it is that time of week again and Morgan is over to spend the night. I really enjoy having Morgan over, its like getting to adopt a cool teenager for the day. I get to make dinner with her and bake a dessert of some sort, make her breakfast in the morning and then get her on her way to school. For the record, I do know having a child involves more than just food; but since most of my life revolves around food, would you expect this to be any different?
So what did we make? Chocolate Carmel Oatmeal Chews. This is a PC recipe from a set of recipe cards. The verdict: Good. I think we may have eaten them a little early because the recipe says to cool completely. I would definitely increase the cooking time to get them a little crisper (just my preference). Morgan put all the ingredients together and did the steps of the recipe, while I read the recipe to her. She needs to work out those stirring muscles, but we have lots of Thursdays to practice. I would recommend this when you are short on time, but need to make something for a group. It is mostly made with pantry items and makes a lot. Morgan says, "they were delicious."
