Now that Lent is over, our cookie jar is back in its customary place on the kitchen counter, next to the fruit basket. This week, we have oatmeal-peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. Since my husband loves to have something to grab and snack on and I hate purchasing storebought snacks (you're mostly paying for packaging, anyway), we compromised early on in our marriage: I keep the cookie jar filled, and he won't beg me to pick up a box of granola bars at the store :)
I usually do our cookie baking once a week, typically on Saturdays, and we nibble freely on the jar throughout the week. I try to rotate in some favorites: mine is chocolate chip, and Brian's favorite is snickerdoodles... I'm not sure what Sophia likes best yet; she just seems to love them all!
It's just a little family tradition that makes our house feel homey and keeps the family happy.
What sorts of everyday treats and traditions does your family have that make your home feel unique and cozy?
