Cookie Friday

At the Abbott home, every Friday is Cookie Friday!

Anybody with school aged children knows that school is tough stuff! It’s early mornings, late nights, school projects, friend drama and so much more. I wanted to give my kids something to look forward to at the end of a busy and stressful week. Nothing is better than homemade chocolate chip cookies! So, I started a tradition and it stuck! Chocolate chip cookies every Friday! Now, my 12 year old son is the one who has taken over the tradition. Some weeks his cookies are even better than mine!
