Copper, White Chocolate, Tomatoes and Brownie Points

we were talking about copper...
well, i have this hmmm...bin?

that's all, oh and that thing
on the plate?

cranberry, white chocolate and pecan cookie.

i made 'em twice recently
...such a nice break from chocolate chip...
which is always the one everyone wants.
i am a walking recipe when it comes to the
one on the back of the chocolate chip bag...
and i half it always.
well you can customize the basic dough
with here is how to make a half recipe
of these in the pic:

1 stick of softened butter
3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 cup all -purpose flour
1 t baking soda
handful of dried cranberries
handful of white chocolate chips
handful of chopped pecans

mix in that order and bake by spoonfuls
at three-fifty degrees F.

food in clear things always looks so pretty!

what's in my jar?
this tomato salad just absolutely
thrills everyone i serve it to!

maybe you make it too...but if not,
here it is:

take a saucepan and boil equal parts of vinegar
and water.
like a cup of each for example...
now add say...a half cup of white sugar.
see how precisely i cook?
hop on one foot and say the alphabet
chop tomatoes,
onions (white or purple)
and add them to the cooled
i sprinkle either dill weed
or a seasoned salt in as well.

you take either of these
foods to a friend's house...
you are going to
score some points!
(hope you don't need points... :/)

edited to add...
i always repay comments...

Those cookies look delicious (life's short, eat dessert first)! So does that salad, and I love the look in the glass jar - beautiful!

Have a lovely Labor Day weekend!

Oooohhh that tomato salad sounds yummy... I'll have to try it soon (I have a bumper crop of big green tomatoes that survived Irene... let's hope Katia doesn't come and knock them off their keesters!)! lol

Cookies, tomato salad, both sound so good. I think I may have to get busy in the kitchen,
