Friday Evening

So I missed posting a Thoughts on Thursday yesterday.  I’ll go ahead and be honest and let you know that I took a nap while Peyton napped instead of typing a post.  Trust me – it was very needed.

So here I sit on a Friday evening.  We just laid Peyton down for bed and Forest is in the basement painting and grouting tile so he can install baseboards tomorrow and be D.O.N.E. [except for dusting everything and putting it all back in place which we’ll do tomorrow and he said his basement will be done for Mother’s Day – how sweet. ;)].

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peyton and I made the easiest peanut butter cookies yesterday afternoon.  My dad made them over the weekend for a cookout so I the baby was obviously craving them and I’m telling you, they are SO easy!  Which is the goal when baking with kids, right?!

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 box yellow cake mix
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup oil
    • 1 cup peanut butter
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients and spoon onto cookie sheets.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Times vary so check frequently (I had used 3 cookie sheets and the best ones were baked for 14 minutes but my dad said his didn’t need to bake as long so it depends on the oven!).
