school is over.

last day of school was yesterday. (even though the junior high/ high school students have had exams and most of the days off for about a week already) now they are all officially done.
we had to go get slurpees.
it is tradition.
let the fun- and the madness begin.
(Ben missed out on slurpees. he was working. he is always working. he is a lifeguard! making the big bucks and getting super tanned. rough life. we don't feel too sorry for him.)

peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip deliciousness

forgive me if I have shared this recipe before,
and kick me if I haven't, because if you are anything like me,
they will be your go to cookie.
you will eat too many. but you will love every single delicious bite.
and since last week one day was indeed peanut butter cookie day,
and I am a bit lame on my blog posting lately (obviously)
but once you make these,
I think you just might forgive me.
a little.

Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
(I found them on pinterest. I do love pinterest, and I think I should devote a post soon to many new recipes I have found, and loved on pinterest.- or you should just follow me on there, and repin what might look good to you. just an idea!) okay, on with the good stuff:

1/2 c butter
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c rolled oats
1 c chocolate chips

mix up, and bake ate 350 for 10 minutes.
(go ahead and double it- trust me. and I use half whole wheat flour, and half white. so good!)

all of a sudden she discovered them.
then she just couldn't get enough of them.
a whole one on Saturday, 
and another on Sunday.
chapter books.
I think this might be a quieter summer than I thought.
