COOKIES AND CUPCAKES, Easy to make together and quick to bake.
It's been hard for some of us to keep up on getting groceries one way or the other. If you have flour,sugar or a sugar substitute, butter, vanilla, brown sugar baking soda, then you have basically what you nee. If you don't have these ingredients, then you can use cake mix, any kind.Only add eggs and oil per instructions on the box. Mix will be thick. Form balls on cookie sheet or sheet of foil, bake as directed on box you do not have to greasepan. You can add to your mix chocolate, nuts, instant oatmeal packet, peanut butter smooth or crunchy. Cupcakes are the same but add to cake mix one cup of water also add to batter if making from scratch. Bake until done, cookies until brown around the edges on bottom.
Something warm and comforting happens to your senses and sharing this process will bring you all together and take your mind off of the sad events of the day. Watch a movie while you all devour those yummy treats.
Before going to bed discuss the things that you are concerned about. Tell each other you will get through this time of uncertainty Stay inside , taking a walk together for a short distance staying clear of other people is OK for now. There is so much misinformation it's unclear to wear a mask or not if you're not infected.Those not affected do not need a mask. Please watch updates on any news channel and follow instructions made by the Doctors not your President. Thanks to all medical employees and public servants helping to saves lives. I pray they stay safe, our heroes. Bless you all, talk tomorrow with more suggestions on how to stay safe.
