Thursday tea and cookies

I didn’t manage to post yesterday, as I spent a chunk of the day at a very useful meeting of independent school media specialists (and came back with some cool new info.)

The cookies this week were another version of the slice and bake palette cookies from the Smitten Kitchen. This time, I did 2 tsps of vanilla extract, and a combination of nutmeg, ginger, and cardamon, to make vanilla spice cookies. (Proportionately, it was more nutmeg and cardamon than ginger, but I did it by smell.)

Books this week were about choices, values, and how we make them – we’ve had some recent conversations about academic integrity, so several books also deal with issues of plagiarism.
