A lot of my friends don’t believe me when I say that I always make my bed every morning. Granted there’s no flowers on the bed to greet me everyday when I come home after a long day, but my bed is always done. There are a few instances when I rush to go to work leaving my bed unkempt, but the thought of it irks me! There’s just something about coming home to a messy bed that irritates the living crap out of me. Call me OCD, but that’s just how I was raised. Growing up, my grandpa often got mad at me when I didn’t make the bed. Now, it’s just a habit.
Do you have any habits from childhood that you continue to practice now?
Any of you tried the butter cookies at Trader Joe’s? They’re actually a hot buy there which got me wondering if there was a mock-up recipe for them. Lo and behold, there is a recipe!
8 ounces of cookies sealed in a sturdy zip-top bag
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup powdered (confectioner’s) sugar
: Cookies weigh different amounts because they vary widely in density. If you can’t measure/approximate 8 ounces based on what is listed on the packaging, you can try to wing it by starting with 1/3 of the pack of cookies and adjust the other ingredients as you go, but it’s best to do this with the correct measurements to ensure the right consistency and balance of flavor.
