Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

1-2-3 Cookies

The #1 daughter came over yesterday and brought a lemon cake mix so that we could make some 1-2-3 cookies. Her sister in California used a chocolate cake mix and added in white chocolate chips. These are so quick and easy and pretty darn good. Here's the recipe...

1 box of cake mix any flavor (get creative!)
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
any add ins you want (get creative!)
Mix all ingredients together.
Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 mins. Or until
they start to brown..tan really..around the edges.

We frosted ours with a lemon glaze. Approx. 1 cup powdered sugar with the juice of one lemon. You have to add more or less lemon juice just keep mixing, to make it runny enough to be a glaze.

I've made those. Definitely worth the eating.

I left a comment on Joy's blog--wasn't sure if I dared tell her I stalk past her house and literally AM a stalker because I looked her up in the phone book and then mapquested her house. I'm such a freak but it's worth it since it's so cute.

I think I will leave my snowman up until the 4th of July and see if anyone says anything. I have such rude neighbors, they probably WOULD.
We keep driving past that house up the street from you with the green roof (that needs new shingle, if you know what I mean) wondering if we should even bother trying to look at it--I'm so ready for more space and a totally fenced in yard and a garage.

we do really want to look at that house, but we kind of looked it up online and if they're still asking 250K, i'm worried that's too much for us (kind of pathetic, I know). i wonder how long it's been for sale and if we could talk them down 50K? yeah, not likely, but I still want to see the inside for myself--the internet pictures were lacking.
