Grocery Deals Coming Later Tonight

I will have the weekly grocery deals posted later tonight or early tomorrow.  Right now, I am in the process of making 200 Sugar Cookies shaped like the United States for the kids at church tonight.  I know.  I know.  I am crazy!  I am sure the friends and family reading my blog are shaking their heads saying "What crazy thing is she doing now??!!"  For those of you that don't know me, I am crazy : )

For my birthday, my favorite Aunt gave me a cookie cookbook Presidential Cookies by Bev Young.  This book is a lot of fun.  It has recipes from each of the presidents starting with George Washington and also includes stories and facts about each of the presidents.  The sugar cookie recipe I am making today is Mamie Eisenhower's recipe and it is delicious (Is cookie dough a healthy lunch?).

I have to admit that right now Florida is not one of my favorite states (my apologies to my Florida readers).  Let's just say it has seceded from the Union more than once today!!  I have heard that the state of California is going to fall off into the ocean one day but after making these cookies it seems like it would be more logical for the state of Florida to fall off into the ocean! 

This is my United States Cookie cutter.  It has been a lot of fun making these cookies despite the Florida issues.   I ordered it from

I will post pictures of the decorated cookies and Mamie Eisenhower's Sugar Cookie Recipe later this week.


  1. This book sounds like a lot of fun information! I'll have to order it, perfect for our States study in our homeschooling. We went down to Branson last year and to Silver Dollar City. They have a country store in there somewhere with a whole wall of cookie cutters. We purchased unusual ones like lobster and a detailed snowflake. Thanks for sharing the link to the cookie cutters. Off to peruse.

  2. Contessa Kris,
    It is Sullivan's Mill at Silver Dollar City that has all of the cookie cutters. I purchased a Missouri cookie cutter there this summer. If you are in the Kansas City area, you can purchase the Presidential Cookie book at the visitor center for the Harry Truman Home on the square in independence. It is perfect for homeschooling and a very interesting read!
