We are early Christmas decorators here, but with Thanksgiving officially past it is finally time to break out ALL things Christmas. What better way to kick off the Christmas season than to have a Tea Time Tuesday Grinch Edition.
This week we are switching things up and skipping the poetry… We always start the holiday season by reading this book and doing some baking, and I wanted to share that tradition with all of you.

One of our favorite things to bake for Christmas is “Grinch Cookies“. To make your own Grinch Cookies you will need:
You can find the instructions here. We do NOT add the mint extract because my children find them to be too minty and we add “hearts” to add that extra Grinchy touch. Otherwise we follow the instructions. We were super excited to find that you can now purchase Andes Mints bits now… No more chopping!
Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Grinch Edition…
We are off to watch “How The Grinch StoleChristmas!”,and relax for a little bit before heading to Julia’s chorus performance. She had a performance last night as well, but I was one of the chaperones in the waiting room with the children. I can’t wait to hear her sing tonight.

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition…
There is a briskness in the air that is letting us know that it is truly autumn time. We are in our sixth week of the school year, and we have settled into our routine. With everything going smoothly we had a day full of coziness… Cozy sweaters, snuggly blankets, and homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk! All of these things were a perfect fit for our Tea Time Tuesday Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition.
Chocolate Chip Cookies by Edward Kofi Louis
Chocolate chip cookies!
In the land of your muse;
Eating and drinking your tea with the muse of your love.
With brown sugar;
But, with love in the land of your muse.
Eating and drinking tea in th eland of your muse;
With the muse of your breakfast.
With your chocolate chip cookies.
This week Kenten made us homemade chocolate chip cookies. To make your own cookies you will need:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
You can find the instructions here. Since Kenten completed his work before we the rest of us were done, he baked and cleaned everything up by himself. His cookies were perfect, and we were able to eat them fresh out of the oven when they were still warm and gooey (yum).
**This recipe calls for walnuts. We skipped the nuts because I don’t care for them.**
