Good News!

Yesterday we took Ben for a follow-up at the doctor. He is doing great. She only gave limitations on his diet. That is not going to be easy for him, but at least he is better and things are "moving along"! Rich is doing much better with the tooth situation too. Looks like we will be healthy and happy for the holiday.

In trying to fix something yummy for Ben without chocolate involved, I made Rich's Great-Grandma's sugar cookies. They are so good. I thought I would post the recipe for those.

Last night I went to bunco. My friend had the best veggie dip. I thought everyone would like that easy recipe too. So, here it goes!

Great-Grandma's Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
cream together
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
4 cups of flour

Mix and roll into balls the size of walnuts. Roll the balls in sugar and press on a greased cookie sheet with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake about 12 minuts at 350 degrees

Kim's Dip

1 cup Miracle Whip
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. dill
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. onion flakes
1 tsp. accent
1 tsp. garlic salt

Mix the night before serving and it has more flavor
