So, June is officially almost halfway over. Really? June brings many changes to my life - and its almost half way over?? This will be a short post, but just wanted to catch you up on what is going on in the English household.
It seems like it was just yesterday that Jesse was headed to North Carolina... and he has gone again, but this time to Atlanta. He is pumped about going to all the Braves games! He is at an internship this summer in downtown Atlanta for the National Park Service and is living in the Decatur area. I wasn't able to help move him in because of the other thing June brings to my life - MSU Orientation. We have already completed 2 sessions, with another one beginning on Thursday. By the end of June, we will have completed 7 sessions. Whew. It has been really cool to see my students at Orientation!
More to come later - until then, I wanted to share the best recipe that I have ever found for Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Jesse and I made these a few weeks ago and I can't get them off of my mind. Follow every step. Including whipping the butter and sugars for 5 minutes - I've never done it that long, normally until it is just combined - but it's worth it! http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2010/10/oatmeal-raisin-cookies-recipe-flour/
