While the demands of last weeks Homecoming events were consuming, I wouldn't have traded it for anything. There were times when I had to leave a house full of family and friends and accompany Courtney. So what do I do when I need to feed dinner to 14 when I can't even be home? I leave them warm pots full of chili on the stove and cookie bars for dessert. (It's a good thing my family doesn't mind serving themselves dinner when they come to my house.)
Want to know my absentee menu?
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Melt butter in microwave.
Whisk in egg, sugars and vanilla.
Fold in dry ingredients just until absorbed.
Spread into a greased 8 inch pan.
Combine sugar and cinnamon for topping.
Sprinkle over batter.
Of course, I documented all of the events of Homecoming week with my camera but you'll have to wait until tomorrow for those pictures. Trust me though - you will want to check in tomorrow to see the pictures.
