Last Wednesday and Thursday the kids’ school was closed because it was raining heavily in Muscat. We, Malaysians actually looking forward to rain as it remind us of home.. the sound of the rain and the after rain smell.. aah.. makes me miss Malaysia even more. Unfortunately here, it doesn’t happen a lot but whenever it rains and pours, a lot of places will be flooded, wadis will overflowing and many lives will be lost as people refuse to listen to the authority and stay away from the wadi crossing. Wadi crossing is very dangerous as the current is very strong and can sweep a 4X4 car in seconds. This wadi crossing can be found everywhere even in the city and if it rains cats and dogs.. the road that go thru this area will be flooded. So, for the kids’ safety, the Ministry of Education decided to close all schools on Wednesday and Thursday. Below are some pictures taken from Times of Oman..
So.. since there was nothing much to do.. I decided to whip up something that was on my to do make/bake list for a long time. Come to think of it.. the girls have been asking for this before Aina and Nurin left for UK.. so.. definitely more than 6 months. Honestly I don’t know why I didn’t do sooner as the recipe was very easy… maybe because of the MALAS mode hehehe. Anyway, the recipe was taken from recipegirl blog and maybe next time I will make the chocolate chip cookie dough brownies like her.
Okay, here is the recipe…
- 3/4 cup salted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar.
- Mix in milk and vanilla.
- Mix in flour just until combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Refrigerate until the dough is quite firm. Ready to eat.
Kids love eating this cookie dough with ice cream.
