Pond Finished and Now Rain

As far as we can tell, our pond levee is completed. We haven't been given any official notification, but the hard hat sign has been removed. Now if the hard head Paparazzi will just remove their spectator chairs from the sidelines, we can get on with our lives.

And now the rain (slow and steady) has arrived in our Wetcreek. Good for us and our refurbished pond, but not so good for our neighbor's daughter who is getting married tomorrow. The wedding will take place at a lovely old antebellum home on the other side of the state. Maybe the rains and storm will have petered out by tomorrow afternoon. Anyway, it will be a lovely wedding ( inside or outside) and as always, "they will live happily ever after!"

Ever heard of Butterfinger Cookies? Let's begin with these in the Cookie segment of Just Plain Cooking:

Butterfinger Cookies (Memaw's)

1 1/4 cup unsifted flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup Butterfingers candy bars cut into small pieces

Sift together flour, soda, and salt.

Cream together margarine and salt (think she meant sugar) until light and fluffy. Beat in egg.

Stir in Butterfinger bits and dry ingredients. Add vanilla and blend well. Chill dough for 30 minutes.

Drop by half teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees F) 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet and cool.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
