1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup 3.25% milk

1/2 of a 390g bag of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add flour, baking soda and milk and stir with a wooden spoon. Add chocolate chips. 

Bake, one sheet at a time, for 10 to 15 min or until golden around the edges and set in the centre. Let cool on sheets for 2 min, then transfer to racks to cool.

Hamburger breakfast 

This one would have worked better with a little more store bought. 

Take your favorite hamburger patty (I made some hamburger rings so it looks messy)

 Cut out the centre to leave a ring (I think it would be better to do this after they’re partially cooked)

Pan fry until almost cooked – use a lid to cook more evenly 

Drop an egg in the centre

Cook egg

Serve like hamburger – yup cheese works here. 

I also should have thawed hamburger buns for this one. 

Edit: store bought burgers fall apart too.

Knorr hollindaise sauce as per package. In the last thickening phase, add a tsp of dill

Toast a cheese English muffin

Smear cream cheese on the heated ham 
Add a poached egg (use egg container to cut ham)
Pour hollindaise over the tower of yummy 

You’re so fat, have perogies 

The fat part is in the sauce here. 

Cut some bacon into about 1″ pieces and fry until it’s the way you like it. Drain what you can of the grease and put bacon aside. 

Start water boiling for perogies. 

Add about 1/2 an onion diced and a heaping tablespoon of butter with some garlic salt or powder back into your frying pan. 

Cook until onions are clear. 

Pour 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 can evaporated milk into pan. 

Add bacon back in and cook for about 5 min until it’s all combined. 

Also works good with some sausage cooked in sliced with the bacon. 

Puffy paint art

Pinterest is full of puffy paint recipes. I twisted this a bit since my oldest is still a bit young to not eat paint. 

In a bowl mix equalish parts cheap shaving foam and white glue (dollar store be my friend) 

Then smear in random piles this on card stock and let dry on a flat surface for a day or two. 

Turns out somewhat like a topography map. 

Then give to toddler with their favorite non toxic paint and a brush or sponge.
