Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip batch take 2

Last Wednesday, I was busy with juggling homework and chores. The day before I had mixed the ingredients together for the recipe for Nestle Toll House cookies. This is my second try at making these cookies by myself.

I had mixed the ingredients all together and it had become a bit tough to mix after all ingredients with a metal spoon. I had put too much brown sugar so the mixture came out looking like a tan. My mom got mad when I told her when I was using her Kirkland chocolate chips. Above is the pictures I took of the entire process.

The cookies came out crispy and soft at the same time. It was all made from scratch.

Yesterday, I made Chicken a la King stew dish for dinner. My uncle brought it over but I am sharing the four pics left and right of the collage of the process of making it. The middle pic of course is the plate of Japanese white rice topped with Chicken a la King and a piece of crusty Costco bread.

  2. Sauté diced vegetables.
  3. After 5 minutes, add salt/pepper.
  4. Throw in flour, mix it in.
  5. Drop in 2 cups of milk, and 1 can of chicken stock.
