Tempt My Tummy Tuesday: Sugar Cookies

first batch...perfect!
Fall weather always brings out the baker in helps warm the house and gives me a much needed stress relief activity that produces yumminess, too.  One of my favorites to make is sugar cookies.  Closer to Christmas, I'll pull out my Grandma's roll out sugar cookie recipe, but, for now, I used a delicious drop sugar cookie recipe.
sprinkles added
Drop Sugar Cookies
3 cups sugar
2 cups Crisco
4 eggs
2 rounded tsp. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
7 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups milk
Sugar Sprinkles as desired
ready for freezer
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, b. soda, and b. powder in bowl and set aside.  Cream together first 5 ingredients in large mixing bowl (recipe will fit in Kitchen Aid mixing bowl very nicely).  Add flour mixture alternately with milk to creamed mixture.  Drop by cookie scoop on ungreased cookie sheets.  Sprinkle sugar crystals on dough and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Leave plain if you want to use frosting after cooling cookies.  Can be frozen.

It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
