Actually, this post is not so much about cookies as it is about the silicone pad that I used for the first time. I got it at the Dollar store ( Betty Crocker is the brand). I tried to get info from the internet on whether to use it rough side up or smooth. The box it came in didn't specify. Some sites said one thing and others the opposite. So I did my first batch on the rough side and the second on the smooth. As you can see there is a slight difference. The smooth side cookies seemed to spread more. ( I purposely left a lot of room between the cookies).
On a totally different subject........I popped in to a thrift store this morning and as I usually do I start over at the canning and jam jars and work my way around the store. An elderly lady leaning heavily on her cane was talking to one of the volunteer ladies and telling her that she used to can over 600 jars of fruit and veg. every year. I had to go over and ask her if I'd heard correctly and yes, I had. Can you imagine? It wasn't even like she had a large family. She mentioned something about there being only three. Anyway, I was very impressed.
My cookies are done, supper is in the oven , and all that remains to be done is peeling potatoes ( DH does that) and preparing the green beans ( from our garden). Today is my day to make supper for all 6 of us; last night my DH and I joined my son and his family (downstairs) for supper and the rest of the week we eat each at our own "homes". Works out quite well.
