If I were a good blogger, I’d have the cookies made that go in the glassine bags. They’d be wrapped with ribbon and have the labels I made attached perfectly to the front.
Instead, I’ve embraced mediocrity, battled my inner perfectionist, and settled for bringing you a picture of a half finished project. But hopefully you get the idea.
I’m baking gigantic chocolate chip cookies today. I was supposed to bake them yesterday, but I got milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and the recipe I’m using is definitely meant for semi-sweets. Plus, I spent yesterday making Mexican wedding cookies for my son’s Cinco de Mayo party at school so he can get extra credit. I should have made him bake the cookies. Instead I made him mow the lawn. That way he could sneeze a lot and I could lick the cookie batter bowl. Being the mom is rad.
I’ve made a little printable for you if you’d like to send in some sweets to the teachers tomorrow. It’s not too late! You still have one more day to make teachers feel appreciated. I created this note for printing on Avery’s 5263 label. If you don’t happen to have an obnoxious stash of labels on hand like I do, you can just print this on paper or cardstock and tape it to your goodies. There are ten labels per page.
You can find the printable here.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! And thank you teachers for helping to make my kids smart. You are appreciated!
Edited to add: Look! It’s 2:30 and I’ve got an update.
