Our church is hosting a Nativity Exhibit and Music Festival this weekend, as they do every year. As usual, I signed up to make my delicious chocolate chip cookies. Well, they are not really "mine." I got the recipe from a friend. But back to the story. I have to turn in 4 dozen cookies today or tomorrow. No problem. This recipe makes about 7-8 dozen. It's a nice big recipe.
Well, Baby G woke up with a slight fever this morning and was pretty cranky, but nothing major. I gave him some baby Advil, put him down for a nap and got to work on my assignment of cookie making. I got everything mixed up except for 2 of the 5 cups of flour and the chocolate chips when G wakes up. I cover the dough and put it in the fridge. His fever was much higher, around 102. This is with the Advil being in his system for 2 hours. He won't stop crying and is burning up. I sit with him and within 10 minutes, his temperature had jumped up to 104. I call the doctor and they are able to get us in right away. We head to the doctor and it is a mild ear infection with a virus on top. Well, a couple doses of antibiotics, Advil and Tylenol, and he is feeling MUCH better! Fever is gone and he's back to throwing his little tantrums.
And back to the cookie dough....
I mix in the remaining flour and chocolate chips and bake up a batch. Not good. They came out very flat and ugly. And I'm stuck here with a HUGE bowl of cookie dough. Whatever shall, I do with it all? Hmmm.....guess I'll grab a glass of milk and a big ol' spoon!
