An Ended Love Affair (Recipe: Hershey’s Toffee Bit Cookies)

Hershey Toffee Bit Cookies

It was great while it lasted…

I know it was only yesterday that I was claiming my true love for all things snow. Yes, I threw around the word “Happiness” and how I was “present” with my kids. I even said “beautiful” and “Kansas” in the same sentence, which I believe is a first for me. Well happiness schmapiness…. that was yesterday and this is today and today, I am sick of the snow. I loved it for all of 24 hours and now I am 100% done with it, thank you very much. It can go back to Antartica, or where ever the heck it belongs because I am through.

Today, we were snowed in from school again, which is always great with me because I do love having my kids home. Instead of getting all sappy and all lovey dovey with the outdoors like I was yesterday, we stayed inside. We did not leave the house all day and today, we did what makes mama happy, which was spent time in the kitchen baking up yummy treats. I was still present with my kids, having fun, but I wasn’t out freezing my tail off in the process.

So yes, I am fickle and maybe a tad bit indecisive and lead by emotion sometimes, but as my daughter likes to say “That’s how God made me”. Maybe I’ll like the snow again tomorrow. Or maybe not. I do know one thing… these cookies using Hershey’s Toffee Bits will be on my love list for a long time to come!

    I have made those cookies before, and they are fabulous! I have been enjoying the little bit of snow we have here, but I don’t usually have to go out in it. It’s fun to observe from my kitchen window while I am baking away :)

    I have a love hate relationship with all the snow we get up here in alberta too

    I love how pretty it is, but I curse the evil evil -30 weather
    Then the weather warms up and I curse the wet wet snow
    Then the snow melts and I freak because everything is so ugly and brown

    then it snows.. begin cycle again
