Chocolate Chip Cookies & Camping!

Notice that I am doubling this recipe, I made this for BJ's Eagle ceremony.  I went camping this week end, and RIGHT before I went, I baked cookies for BJ's Eagle ceremony.  BJ IS A EAGLE IN BOY SCOUT'S!!  Any way, who does not like a simple glass of milk and cookies?  I know I'd raise my hand on that one!  

First, to a bowl, mix together 2 1/4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon soda and 1 teaspoon salt.

Now, to an electric mixer, cream together 1 cup softened butter.

Add 3/4 cup sugar,

3/4 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Mix to combined.

Now add 2 eggs, one at a time, until nice and fluffy.

SLOWLY add the flour mixture.

Mix that to combined.

Now, CHOCOLATE CHIPS!!  Dump in 2 cups.

You can also add pecans, my family likes them with pecans.

Scoop them out onto a baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes at 375.

Remember I went camping?  Scroll down to see some of my friends.
OK, first of all, FAITH WOULD NOT CALM DOWN.  She was going camping, of course she was crazy.

here are some of my friends: Tillie, Olivia, Margot, Constance and me.

And here are some of BJ's friends:  Ben, Seth, BJ, Someone I don't know, Charlie, and Timm.  And no, "Timm"  is not a typo.

This is Elliot.  (He has a caterpillar on his nose.)

I loved the flowers there.  They were so many of them.......

Many of them....

Many of them...

Did I mention there were many of them?

This butterfly actually let me get close to it!  I love going camping.  I hope you do too.
