Butter them up with cookies.

Community politics in Indian County

(still working on claymation movie, kids gone swimming today)

I have a bylaw committee meeting today. The committee has been working hard bringing the wishes of the community into the bylaws. Among them is giving the youth rep a voting position on the board and making sure the bylaws don't take away rights of community members. This is widely anticipated by the community, all except for one board member (a fan left over from the lawyers we got rid of). She has sent emails and is trying to undo much of what we have accomplished. Her threats seem real if you are new to this arena. The CC'ed emails appear to give credit unless you notice it is only the ones she has sent and never any replies.

She can't make the meeting :0)

She is relying on her emails and a friend.

I have truth...and cookies.

Manipulation cookie recipe
A.K.A. Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar(or 1 cup white and 2 tbsp molasses)
1/2 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Beat butter or margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and raisins, mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are almost set. Do not over-bake. After-bake 1 minute on cookies sheets, then move to wire racks. Cool -

-My Tupperware deli meat storage thing holds 2 dozen cookies. As for deli meats, well Things that are hidden in a fridge are never good.
