I’m not very good at following through with projects. I don’t like to admit it, but it’s true. When I was in elementary school, I started one of those embroidery samplers. I got about halfway through before it got shoved into the back of my closet. I think I found it about a year later and finally finished it. And I can’t count the number of times I’ve had a mission to organize my closet/dresser/shoes and just ended up trying everything on and making a huge mess. The organization eventually happened, though. So maybe I’m just really slow at finishing projects.
Regardless, I like projects. Especially ones that force me to cook (cough, this blog, cough). Enter the Summer Cookie Project. Since J will be at school this summer, I figured a nice thing to do would be to bake him cookies. A lot of them. Plus, I just bought that new recipe book I mentioned yesterday, and this will be a good way for me to try out a variety of recipes. The plan is that every weekend I will bake a new batch of cookies (hopefully different ones each time). Then J can take them to school if he wants (and he better– I don’t need a whole batch of cookies sitting around the house every week!). And hopefully I’ll find some new favorite cookie recipes along the way!
