This morning, all of my Things went for a walk around the block, so I got a shower! Whoopie! Then, they happily played outside for a while. I used the absence of a small person clinging to my leg to clean up the house and make lunch for our homeschooling park day.
There was still time left over, so I tried my Amazing Powers of Recipe Creation and made these, right out of my head.
Deep Chocolate Wonder Cookies with Mini Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I wonder what it says about my cooking habits that I can make a passible cookie with very little thought?
Anyhow, if you want to do this too? Just cream 1/2 cup of butter with 1 cup of sugar, and then add 2 eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla. When it's all nice, add 1 cup of cocoa, 1 cup of flour, a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of baking soda. When everything is mixed, stir in some peanut butter cups.
Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. Eat. All measurements are pretty much the palm of my hand or by eye, so your mileage may vary.
Plus, I frogged and reknit the larger mittlet, so they match and are lovely. Unfortunately, I had already mailed my scarf package. And, when I pulled the needles out of that cotton lace? It's so definitely wide enough that I just ripped out the bad rows and think I'll get moving on it tonight. Woo hoo!
