cookies can be good for you, too! but we did our best to make that not *quite* happen.
the graphic accompanying the weekly e-mail was pretty straightforward about what we would be attempting to make--that being--"wheat and fruit cookies"
the recipe called for dates...but they are out of season. so i thought some dried apples and mangoes would do splendidly. and i put brown sugar in them...even though it didn't tell me to.
the area is all prepped and ready.
a little REAL nutrition! laura arms us with forks...
and thus starts our new weekly tradition...eating roasted broccoli and brussel sprouts before we basically have cookies for dinner.
"still life with veggies and hands"
this was the third week, i believe, that we did this. and it's been pretty fantastic. only those who are there on the early side get to partake...laura, me, chad, and this time, by the skin of her teeth, cassandra!
i'll just let you come up with your own caption for this picture.
i think think photo of cassandra and my mom is super cute.
little man on an orange!

this picture just does my heart good. what a spread...
cassandra brought a savory apple and herb pie, laura made some of her famous peanut butter cookies, and there on the bottom right are the wheat and fruit cookies! which i loved...laura wasn't a huge fan. they seemed to win people over, i think, as there were only 2 left at the end of the night. and look at all they had to contend with!!
us, cassandra, chad, lindsey, pip, shannon, shelvy

This week we're going where angels fear to tread. Yes that's right...to the land of healthy cookies. What a bunch of fruits! (Err...the cookies that is.) I know I know I know. I kid, because...I'm scared too.
On the upside, just one of these bad boys and you'll have so much God-given natural sugar in your bloodstream you'll be able self-power a windmill, which come to think of it, may be clearner, albeit sweatier energy source than this whole oil thing we've got going on.
And now that I've grossed you out on every front (Oh just give me a moment, I'm sure I can think of a few more) let's review the facts:
