Friday Favorites.

We have been busy soaking up sunshine and playing outside all week long. Larry finished his first week of work and has been super busy. I am super busy too, making cookies, cooking for a family of 8, making crafts, shopping and such. Busy Bees we are.

Friday Favs? These Oatmeal cookies are so good...I ate like 7 last night no exaggeration. I watched Country Strong ate cookies and drank diet coke, my kinda night.

Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies
2 sticks butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
3 1/2 cups oatmeal {use real oats not instant}
16 oz large milk chocolate chips

** Mix wet ingredients with the sugars until creamy then add the flour and oats. Place large chocolate chips on top of the balls on the cookie sheets and Bake 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. I think the key is just placing the chocolate chips all over instead of mixing them into the whole dough**

Another Friday Fav...Taking Max to the park everyday so he can swing to his little hearts content. We are so happy living here, its been amazing! I can't say it enough times.
