52 New Things – Week 15

New this week!

Jamie –

This week, I tried a recipe my friend Emi sent me because I claim to be cookie-baking-inept.  Until last night, I could only bake one kind of cookie succesffully.  Seriously folks, I can even ruin the slice and bake type.  Anyway, you mix up one box of cake mix, one stick of butter and one egg.  Spoon the mixture onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  I’m happy to report that I’ve had them for breakfast and now lunch and they turned out just fine!

My new thing this week was having a yard sale.  I’ve seen it done before, but never actually done one.  I cleaned out a boat load of stuff, mostly baby items, and hauled it to the sale.  I can’t say I’m a fan of getting up at 6am on a Saturday, but my $250 made it much easier to accept!

In the spirit of “Green Month” I have switched the Twinlets over to Seventh Generation chlorine free diapers. I love them! I’ve tried another brand before that didn’t work out too well, but I have fallen in love with these and plan to keep on using them.  They don’t even leak overnight!! They are a little more expensive but now that we don’t go through quite so many diapers in a day,  I can stomach the cost and know that I’m doing a little something to help the environment.
