Bay bakes, again!
Before we get to the cookie recipe, let’s do a quick little Bay update……
Spring Show/ 4-H is OVER! Pig is sold. Tablesetting is over. Baking, will contiune in our own kitchen. Now to complete the Record Book. In my opinion, the worst ever.
I take that back, we are sitting in on a 4-H county meeting tonight to make up for a missing club meeting. Think I can sneak wine? I hear they are boring AF!
Bay was elected the 2018-2019 Willow Oak 4-H Secretary. She’s so excited.
English horseback riding is the only activity Bay is currently doing. BIG thanks to Sara for making it happen. I remember when we had riding + swim team + gymnastics + soccer all at the same time. WTF was I thinking? Ha! #lessonlearned
Filled out all the paperwork for Bay to begin Faith Formation again. I was never confirmed. I blame it on Mary Ann though 🙂
Summer camps: Volleyball + algebra academy + ASES. Along with some babysitting and ditching me to hang with Gram + cousins in Tahoe.
Bay shaved her legs over the weekend. I sat outside the tub and coached her. I felt so proud and devastated at the same time. Where did my hairy legged baby go?
In 16 day, Bay (and I) will no longer be Plainfield Elementary School peeps. This is a hard one! We’ve loved this school for seven years. No more carpool. No more PTA? Shit is getting real…let me tell you!
6th grade promotion is also 16 days away (11 school days to be precise) Thanks for all your instagram story poll votes, Bay picked out her 6th grade promotion dress.
She picked Dress #4
Did I mention there is a 6th grade dance on June 1st at the Community Center? ONLY 6th graders….No parents allowed. OMG. Promotion. Shaving legs. And now a dance too? Dying! So, in true crazy mama fashion, I ordered Dress #1 + Dress #2 for her to choose between for the dance. Because, “you can’t wear that same dress to both” according to Bay. Not sure where she’s heard that shit from? In my defense, J.Crew is having a killer deal. All the dresses are marked down 40% + free shipping.
Now, what you’re really all here for…..
The cookie recipe! Bay did it again with this one. Hit it out of the ballpark.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies //
Soft + chewy. Peanut buttery little slice of heaven. And chances are, you’ll have everything in your pantry you need to whip up a batch. Beware, the dough is insane!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cup old fashion oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Here’s what you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
Whisk together oats + flour + baking soda + salt + cinnamon. Set aside.
Using a mixer, beat the butter + peanut butter + sugar + brown sugar until creamy.
Add egg + vanilla and mix until combined.
With the mixer on low, gradually add the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
Scoop cookies into round balls and place on the baking sheet.
Try not to eat all the dough. But, good luck 🙂
Bake 11 minutes (according to Bay, it must be exactly 11 minutes)
Allow to cool on a wire rack.
Watch them vanish!
Have a great Wednesday friends!
