1 bag white chocolate chips
Mix well. Bake 350* for 10-13 minutes on parchment paper
I got this recipe from Rinda Perdue and it was a hit at the FHE meeting I went to this weekend with our new friends. I cheated and made bars because I didn't feel like dipping cookies, and they all turned out great!
When we arrived at the game there was no coach and not enough players. One of the boys dad's filled in as coach. Then several boys that played in the earlier game stayed and helped our team. That was another gesture that I found comforting. I hope Kota and his teammates will get to repay the favor some time.
With no coach and not a solid team we lost. 0-3, but it was still fun watching. At first, when Kota told me he wasn't playing football I was disappointed. I love football, the game, the intensity, the winning streak our boys have been on the past 3 years, hearing my son's name announce over the loud speaker under the Friday night lights. It's all gone.
But, my dear, sweet husband reminded me that my children should have the right to choose what they want to do. Yep, even if it's not what I had envisioned, it will be a great senior year for him. And I will enjoy watching him learn and grow in something he wants to do. Plus, with the two concussion of last year, this is the best choice he could have made.
