Breakfast this morning went great! I always love having company. My sister decided to mix things up a bit and came over at 7:45 instead of 8:15 and had to eat and get a coffee to go before 8:20. This threw off my morning a bit and I'm using the excuse to explain why 5:00 came along and I hadn't started anything today.
I did make coleslaw but I didn't figure that really counted, although, I did cut myself pretty good on the grater while I was shredding it.
So this evening, I hopped online and found this recipe on another blog and while I was on the phone with my girlfriend Meredith, thelosthousewife.blogspot.com, I wiped these up. Literally they took like 10 minutes. They are chilling in the fridge as I type. From what I can tell from the spoon cleaning, they are pretty darn tasty!
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
(adapted from Ezra Poundcake) I got it from the blog "Everybody likes Sandwiches"
2 c sugar
1 t salt
1/2 c milk
4 T cocoa (I used Ovaltine, because it's all I had)
1/2 c natural peanut butter
3 to 3 1/2 c old fashioned oats
2 teaspoons vanilla
In a medium sized saucepan, mix together the first 5 ingredients and bring to a boil.
Let boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Add in remaining ingredients.
Use a teaspoon to drop the mixture onto the cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Chill until set. Keep in the refrigerator.
Update: 7-30-12 I just made these again yesterday and followed this recipe and discovered that I seriously messed up! It's not 2 Tablespoons of vanilla but teaspoons. Oh my goodness. They are not so yummy with that much vanilla.
