Re-entry!

Hockey is over for the season! Thank you very much. We have slowly been reentering the world of the normal people. Homework at predictable times, good homemade meals, normal bedtime routines, stories in the evening have all been part of this week's activities. Things that have fallen toward the wayside for me have been my knitting and reading. Those were activities that I was able to accomplish while the boys were on the ice.
As I was reading this month's Real Simple I noticed a whole list of wonderful new blogs that were new to me. I made these cookies from the Smitten Kitchen. They are yummy to have with your tea or coffee. This time I just rolled them in sugar, but next time I would add something more to them.

It's green week over at Shining Egg. Not much around here to photograph that's green...I might have to reach into my archives to find some green from the summer!
Something new that I am enjoying is Mango Lemonade from Bolthouse Farms. Yummy stuff!
I can just imagine alittle bit of vodka added in to make a wonderful summer drink!

I always felt a bit sad when our hockey season ended. I missed the kids and parents. It was really sad when he left the ice for the final time his senior year. Enjoy it while you can.

I love Smitten....Which cookies are those and what would you add next time to them?

Hi Sherri,
Thought you disappeared! These are the slice and bake cookies. I might add dried cranberries or some nuts to give it a little bit more texture. Mini chocolate chips might be good also.

It's funny, but I think about senior night already. I will probably be a blubbering idiot as my sons go out on the ice for the last time. I think out of all the sports they can play, hockey parents have to give the most time.
We are on to baseball now...tryouts are the end of March. We will probably have a snowstorm!
