Today happens to be what is locally known as a Pro-D day, otherwise known as a Professional Development day for teachers. This means Walter doesn't have school today. His school includes out of school care, so I could have dropped him off anyway ... but it's nice to just hang around at home and have a lazy day. Especially since my little guy loves to lounge all day in PJs.
So far, wood train systems have been built, Lego ninja's have fought, and angry birds have flown through the air. Lots of Halloween candy has been eaten - of course, I did demand an apple be eaten along with the candy ... nutrition is important.
Around noon we decided to make cookies. I had a bag of dark chocolate chips (50% cacao) from Hershey's Chipits. They always have recipes on these bags, so instead of hunting down a recipe from one of my many cookbooks or searching the internet I used what Hershey's offered me. It was an easy recipe to follow.
There was a fair bit of product testing going on to ensure quality control was maintained throughout ... five-year-olds take their job seriously! I had to oversee things too ...
There are still some cookies left!
