Dollar General Boxes

I found these boxes at Dollar General this afternoon. The long rectangle one I think I will use to keep my bills in. The other 3 will go in the sewing room---I am thinking. They had some pretty aqua/brown ones also.

Chewy Pecan Cookies

I found this recipe on a blog ----My Five Men----- that I have followed for a quite awhile now. Betsy has alot of good recipes listed. Never have had one that I have made that we didn't like.
It is listed on my side bar.

Chewy Pecan Cookies
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chopped pecans

Combine dry ingredients in small bowl and set aside. combine wet ingresients in mixing bowl and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Stir in flour mixture, pecans and oats just until combined. Drop by rounded tablesppns onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, until nicely browned. At 350.

My oven I did 10 minutes. I put the oats in with the dry ingredients and pecans at the last.

More projects

These are for my nieces birthday in February. Done this week too along with hemming a pair of pants and fixing a hole in a shirt for a coworkers husband, and sewing a couple patches on a vest for my great niece. Hope this coming week is as productive.

Couple projects last week
