thank you betty

last week i made cookies. they were delicious. oatmeal chocolate chip, a la betty crocker [oh,and a la csn]. i got a silicone baking mat from them because i was really intrigued by the one my mom had. this one was only $9, and was awesome. it was delivered within a day or two after ordering it. the cookies baked evenly and perfectly, and slipped right off the mat. when i was all done i threw it in the dishwasher, even though the only stuff that was left on it was some melted chocolate chips. it came out perfectly clean and i was so happy!

the baking mat fit right into the cookie sheet, and was awesome. i hate washing cookie sheets so it was awesome that this could be folded up and thrown into the washer. and the cookies were DELICIOUS! i swear they were all gone in a 24 hour period.

ALSO, i have been doing better at making dinner. tonight i wanted to go out to eat but instead we stayed in and i made something for the first time [by myself]: french toast. yummmmmmm! the funny thing is, it's one of my all-time favorite meals. yet i always rely on others to make it for me. so finally tonight i got it together, and me and betty put our heads together and came up with this:

yum! it was delish. while i was still cooking some on the stove josh was preparing his french toast. he was adding powdered sugar and this was the conversation that followed:

josh: mmmmm, do you understand how good powdered sugar is!? whoever invented it is genius. it's like heaven!
me: umm...i know. when i was younger i would sneak into the pantry with a big soup spoon and eat it out of the bag.
josh: well well well, jess did start young!

hahaha. it's true. happy weekend!! ♥

What? French toast with icing sugar on top?! How is it that I haven't tried this before? It looks amazing!

So cute! :) Ha! And you did good by having French toast for dinner! The possibilities for this are endless. I am a FT fanatic!

Also, your cookies look delicious, and it seems that silicone cookware is all the rave! I have a feeling I'll be jumping on that bandwagon soon enough!
