Weekend: Now you see it,now you don't

Drop spoonful of
Bhaarath with the cookies

The anticipation of the weekend is much more a joy then the actual weekend itself. There is some magic in the universe on Friday's.The sky looks bluer, people kinder and the world seems to be all bright and cheerful. No bigots and fanatics, only sane and nice people. Then Sunday comes creeping through and the world again seems like a battle ground,where one need to fight to survive. Okay...that is how it is for me anyway (also I am in thePMS timeframe). In recent times I have become a little braver in facing the sunday blues. This weekend was really a busy one. I had prayer sessions, meeting with old friends for lunch, and then spending time with mother-in-law. On Saturday afternoon Arjoonha did not have his usual children class so we made chocolate chip cookies. It turned out well. For the first 20 pieces I tried the original recipe and it turned out great, for the 2nd 20 I added in cocoa powder, and it tasted good, but the cookies were not so soft, and slightly harder.I preferred the 1st batch. This recipe is very simple and all will be good to go in less then 15mins of preparation and 10 mins of baking. Let me know how it turns out!

1 cup butter (original recipe they use shortening)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chip(original recipe german choc, I used Hersheys choc chips)

preheat oven
cream butter, sugar, until fluffy and then add in eggs, and beat well. Then stir in vaniila and all the other dry stuff and mix well till they blend.
use a spoon to make drops intoa greased baking tray.
