Well hello, Wednesday! Today I am making Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings, which makes me think of my lovely friend Teri.  Hi T! She makes good REAL Chicken and Dumplings.  Really good. But the real recipe for today is this. Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies.  YUM O! I cannot wait to pop these in the oven, and eat them over a steaming mug of tea, as suggested.  Here is a pic:

I am  currently pretending it isn't almost 80 degrees and sunny; that will make the cookies and Dumplings taste better, won't it?
I got new glasses today.... first time in ... embarrassing to admit.... SIX years! When I can get my phone to work (or find my camera charger (I'm a MESS) ) I will post more pictures. Dying to post more pictures.

Three days till race time! My plans are all finalized with the running buddy, Eric. Babysitting figured out. Lunch plans figured out (most important part). List made. Going to pack tomorrow... only thing not done? Physical fitness, ha! Lest you think I am encouraging racing without preparation... I promise I will be very moderate in pace and listen to and love my body. It can do amazing things, so I will take care of it. I remember thinking having a baby is better than marathoning... that was before baby O and no meds.  I think they are about equal now :)And this is only a half, so I think I am good. Ramble ramble, those cookies won't bake themselves... here we go!


  1. Hi Beth! I was just thinking about making chicken and dumplings!

    Also...OMG, these cookies look delicious! I'm adding instant cider and caramels to my shopping list right now. Let me know how they turn out!

  2. Wow... those cookies look AMAZING! Good luck in your race! I'll offer up a prayer for you!
