There’s nothing like a Spring snow storm to cover up all the mud and brown grass. It is a good thing that daffodils and crocuses can handle the crazy weather we have here in New England.
I does amaze me that some people forget how to drive in snow, seriously it wasn’t that long ago how quickly they forget that it’s slippery out there and you probably should drive just a bit slower. When my kids were in school I drove them to school every morning. There is a stop sign at the end of the road which ends in a curve of sorts. We would take bets on if the sign was knocked over or not pretty much every storm; it was knocked down more than it was standing.
I have mentioned numerous times that I google my blog to find a recipe to make. I would have sworn I shared this cookie recipe but I couldn’t find it so that is why I am sharing now or again. It has been quite a while since I have made them so much so that my husband didn’t think they had pistachios in them. So I second guessed myself and split the dough to add some nuts to one and nothing in the other. I made a few of each and all three of us agreed the ones with nuts in them were better. The saltiness of the pistachios helped with the sweetness of the cookie.
