Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Ethan and Carissa. Tonight we made our traditional spring treat/cookie: Bird Nests.
The recipe is simple:
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 bag chow mein noodles
Melt choc chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter together (I do this in the microwave). Stir in chow mein noodles. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper. Decorate with candy eggs (our egg of choice is the Cadbury mini egg).
We also continued reading our current book selection: God's Names by Sally Michael. This week we learned the names Jehovah, Yahweh, and I AM meaning: self-existent and unchanging. As we are learning about the names of God, we are learning about who he is, his character and nature.
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
