Lunch with Girlfriends

I was invited to lunch with my friends Ruth and Susan. Ruth made everything for us and it was wonderful. This is the salad and it had a yummy new flavor in every bite. She said there wasn't a recipe, just put on everything that looked like Fall! It would be a great way to use that leftover turkey.

These rolls are sold at Sam's Club and come already in the pan and you just heat them up for about 5 minutes. They are as good as they look. Great idea for Thanksgiving'll look like you cooked all day...these taste homemade and are even made with whole grains.

The best dessert...a big chewy chocolate chip cookie. I'll put the recipe at the end of this entry. :)
Ruth is on the left and Susie on the right...They're busy making my lunch! I felt so loved.

Ruth's Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. shortening
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
Cream those ingredients together. ADD:
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t. soda
1. salt
2 c. oats, use quick or regular
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. coconut
Bake 350 10-12 minutes on greased cookie sheet. Ruth usually triples the above recipe and the dough stays well in the fridge for about a week and she just keeps making fresh cookies everyday. She makes them really big by using an ice cream scoop and only putting 6 cookies on each cookie sheet to bake.

Live Well,


  1. What a treat to have lunch with both Ruthie and Susie. How did you manage that?? Ruth makes the best salads in the world (next to you) and I've been the lucky recipent of some of Susie's baking (yum!)
    On top of the great food, I'm sure just being in their presence was the best part. They exude love and warmth.

  2. Yum! Everything looks so good! There is nothing better than sitting down to a wonderful lunch with specail friends. Thanks for the great recipe!
