Sidenote: The Christmas lights? Well, the girls who lived here before us put them up all around our porch, and since they're a little tacky to have up in the summer (definitely college-student outdoor decorating going on here...) and we STILL haven't found the place to plug them in, they came down right after this picture was taken.
Anyway, in spite of the heat wave going on across the corn belt (angry farmers, friends. Angry farmers.), I needed cookies. NEEDED. COOKIES.
And so, even though it feels like some kind of terrible sin to turn an oven on when it's this darn hot outside, I made cookies.
Yummy! Zeke was pretty excited to come home. Every counter top (we don't have many counter tops) was covered with cooling cookies. I had fun making all of em.
Which brings me to my next thought. I love my KitchenAid Mixer. Looove it. Because I don't have much chance to cook this summer, I'm still using some of my new, beautiful wedding gifts for the first or second times. This was the second time I used the KitchenAid Mixer, and the first time I used two of my cookie sheets.
