San Francisco Zoo

Today my son and daughter in law went to the San Francisco Zoo for a visit and it looks like they had fun...
Here are some of the pictures they sent me...
This was dinner on the roof... that's romantic 
I love this picture... Can you see the Giraffe in the back ground
Feeding the goats... I love the swans in the back ground
Here is a hippopotamus
Prairie Dogs
The Zoo has small statues all over the zoo like this one
Elephant baby aw... My daughter love the elephants 
My son is sooo FUN! I love his sense of humor 
It was raining... My daughter in law is so sweet! I love her

Gluten Free Cookies

These cookies are really yummy to me, but I am use to healthy treats. The sugar content is low and they crumble but for me they are a really great treat.

Even my Sweet husband liked them and he is my worse critic when it comes to healthy treats. He is all for the opposite of healthy eating lol just kidding.

I made a batch of these today and gave one to our neighbor and she liked it to so I consider this a hit.

Here is the recipe...
1 pound of your favorite trail mix (I think all trail mix should have chocolate but that's my opinion)
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 egg whites
2 cups creamy peanut butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with baking parchment or a silpat

In a large bowl mix egg whites and sugar together then add peanut butter and mix well. Next add trail mix and mix until blended about two minutes. I put mine in my kitchen aid and mixed it all up. 
For the next step you could use a ice cream scoop but I just used my hands and made a cookie…
