This weekend there was some amazing weather! Tornadoes showed their power across the southern part of this country...tornadoes that receive their power and direction from a Power much bigger than they. Around 11am on Friday, an F3 tornado touched down in my hometown of Clinton, MS. It tossed cars across the interstate, took roofs off a bank, literally flipped a house on its side, took out many trees, and destroyed up to 60 homes. In all of that, no one was killed or even seriously injured (the 87 year old woman in the home on its side only had a broken nose)! To add to all that, the neighborhood most seriously effected has a daycare at front and an elementary school in the middle.
In addition to telling you about the amazing weather, I have some amazing cookies to tell you about.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
8 ounces white chocolate chips
2 cups corn flakes cereal
1 cup nuts, toasted (I used a combo of almonds and pecans)
6 oz. craisins
Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and shortening together. Cream in sugars. Add eggs and beat well. Mix in dry ingredients. When well mixed add in chocolate, cereal, nuts, and cranberries. Drop by tablespoons onto baking sheet or stone. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove and cool for 1 minute, then remove cookies to cooling rack. Enjoy!
Sorry, no Eat. Live. Be. today...we're supposed to talk about our play list. Well, I have no play list! I have not MP3 or IPOD. :-)
