Cornell v. Princeton @ Princeton
As my husband and our friends went to Cornell, that's who we rooted for. Cornell hockey games are a lot of fun! Despite being at Princeton, there are plenty of Cornell fans in the audience to carry on some of the Cornell fan antics such as...
- The Canadian national anthem is sung, then during the U.S. national anthem, Cornell fans yell "Red" at the appropriate time ("and the rockets' red glare")
- When the opposing team's starting line up is being read, Cornell fans pretend to be reading the newspaper and chant "booooring"
- When Cornell scored, the Cornell fans chant, "It's all your fault" (directed to the goalie)
- When an opposing team member gets a penalty, Cornell fans wave as he goes into the penalty box. (these two are probably not exclusive to Cornell games).
Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone on me at the game, and did manage to take a couple low quality pictures/videos, but accidentally deleted them a little prematurely while clearing out my phone in anticipation of getting new phones on Monday. So I had to try really hard to find stock pictures.
Anyway, Cornell won, 2-1. The game was a lot of fun!
Saturday night, I made cookies from the mix we got for Christmas. I realized after posting about my food-related Christmas gifts that I forgot to include this one. It's all the ingredients for M & M cookies in a jar, minus egg, butter, and vanilla.
Next, I added the stuff I needed to add, mixed it up, then formed it into balls "the size of walnuts"
These dough-balls are smaller than I usually make, yet still larger than a walnut in my opinion. I found a walnut for comparison.
There was supposed to be dough to make 2.5 dozen cookies (30). But I fit 15 on the first tray and still had all this dough left over:
I ended up with 40 little dough-balls...which blossomed into 40 little cookies.
Bake time was 12-14 minutes. The first batch didn't look done to me, yet, at 12 minutes (still looked like raw dough) so I left the tray in until closer to 14 when they barely started to get a little brown, as per the recipe. I think that batch was a little crispier than I like, so the last two trays only stayed in for 12 minutes. I need more practice with sugar cookies I think, because I would have preferred for them to be even softer. I think next time I would just make these into bigger cookies to fix that problem (maybe twice the size?)
Regardless, they are still fresh cookies, and they were delicious!
