Time to make the cookies.....

Well, we have been putting off Christmas stuff day after day. We'll bake cookies tomorrow. Or tomorrow. Lets do that tomorrow.

Well, it was Christmas Eve Eve last night, so we ran out of tomorrows. We always make YumYums. Jenn lovesloves them. They are made with 1 cup chocolate chips and 2/3 cup peanut butter melted together, stir in 3 cups of Wheaties and drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet. Chill. Lick pan and spoon clean. Eat all YumYums in one sitting. Realize that you have to give some away, quadruple the recipe and start again.

Chris has been begging for peanut butter cookies. So we made those too...here they are baking...



Okay, back to YumYums.

Mmmmm peanut butter and chocolate chips melting away in my favorite pot:


Jenn stirring the mix cheerfully (or eating half of it, whichever):


Mixing in the Wheaties:

I'm not sure what I'm more envious of, the Yum Yum's or the green grass!

R's family makes something similar, except they use chinese noodles & call them "haystacks." now you've got me in the mood!!

and im envious of the green grass too. ours is just a lovely dead brown color. not even a flake of snow to cover it.
