Hope the weekend is fun and enjoyable for you!
Today thought I would share what I was doing a few days back when it was raining cats and dogs here on the Oregon coast ( excuse the silly joke) Any whooooo! now I sound an owl
I decided to do some baking while we were getting the 8 inches of rain and I found I had a box of dark chocolate cake mix that was for Christmas time; that I did not use so I thought make dark chocolate cookies!
I took the box and mixed one cup of butter and one egg to get the dough for cookies and I think you can still get dark cake mix in the store, this mix just happened to be for Christmas but I think there is a dark chocolate cake mix in stores all the time, that's what I am trying to say in a round about way. Next I used some Raspberry Jello and sugar and mixed the sugar and dry jello together. I rolled about 1 1/2 balls, then rolled them in the sugar mixture and mashed them down slightly with a fork and baked at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until done. I used about a 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 table spoons of the jello for the mixture. My hubby just loved the cookies.

Right now I am doing some more crocheting, and yes its going to be another really large doily or decor for a chair I will have to see how far I can get with the yarn and I share that with you all a little later. I am sorry I did not get a thing done for Valentine's day but I am working on a few things for next year and I am working towards Easter!! and Spring.
