Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Emily, Ethan, Carissa, and Alli. We made one of our favorite summertime cookies tonight: The Hamburger Cookie.
- Here's what you'll need for the Hamburger Cookie:
- Vanilla wafers
- Small chocolate mint patties
- White frosting + yellow and red food coloring
- Coconut + green food coloring
- A few kids to help you out
First, divide the frosting into two bowls, color one red and one yellow to resemble ketchup and mustard.
Next, color the coconut green to resemble lettuce (or as Alli would say, "salad"--please pass the salad)
Frost the inside of one cookie with mustard (yellow frosting) and the inside of another cookie with red frosting (ketchup). Place a mint patty on top of one of the cookies, sprinkle with coconut (lettuce) and top with the second cookie.
Ahh, the finished product
Can't beat this no-bake recipe on a hot July evening
Tonight we continued on in our book Training Hearts, Teaching Minds by Starr Meade.
Tonight's question (#3) was: "What Does the Bible Primarily Teach?"
Answer: "The Bible Primarily Teaches What Man Must Believe About God and What God Requires of Man"
As you can imagine, this question (and answer) spurred on some lively conversation. I'm enjoying this book because the questions (and answers) allow me to probe deeper into conversation about God. Once we move past the "Sunday School" answers, the children really start to think about what they believe about God and about if they believe what I'm saying is true (especially the older children). I love material that causes us to think. Now that they're thinkging, may God move and change hearts (the complete set is needed).
Another Cookie Baking Night has come and gone and, as usual, a fun time was had by all.
