I did a little baking tonight.
Can you guess what I made?
Mmm. Peanut butter.
Now I’m not one to eat other people’s food, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist nibbling on these cookies, so I made sure to bake half of a batch for me and Ryan to enjoy.
I baked the cookies on a Silpat, the most amazing non-stick baking mat that my friend Merri introduced to me.
I flippin’ love this thing!
The cookies slide off the mat so easily and clean up is a breeze.
Once the cookies were cooled, it was time to enjoy one… or five.
What? They were small…
I had to put a lid on the cookies to stop myself from eating my body weight in these bad boys!
Guess who else likes these cookies?
She’s a huge peanut butter fan just like her mama, though she doesn’t appreciate it when you smear peanut butter on the roof of her mouth and laugh as she tries to get it off.
I ended up eating so many cookies and a significant amount of dough that I basically ruined my appetite for dinner.
I still managed to eat half of a stuffed pepper right out of the Tupperware to get something nutritious in my belly.
After enjoying my cookies and pepper, Ryan and I spent the evening catching up with our friends Dru and Carrie who came over to hang out and answer the bazillion questions we had for them about their recent engagement and upcoming wedding.
They got engaged last week and it was fun to talk to them and hear the excitement in their voices!
Dru and Carrie just left and now we’re unwinding a bit before heading into bed.
Hooray for Friday tomorrow! 😀
