Cookies For Brekkie!


I stumbled upon this recipe in BHG and forgot about it. Then one rainy day I made these cookies to surprise the kids for breakfast the next school morning! Oh boy did I hit on something fantastic. They ate them up and wanted more. The next day I tripled the batch so that I could freeze some. Instead I found the boys on the porch with their friends passing them out. I couldn't help and overhear the conversations...."wow these are great...give my mom the recipe so I can have these everyday"......Them are big words coming from the boys! :o) Needless to say I never got any stored in my freezer! I thought I would pass the recipe along to you....I substituted Honey Nut Cheerios for the Cheerios and no raisins...I used Chocolate Chips! Yumm-o


Ingredients

* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
* 1-1/4 cups sugar
* 1/2 tsp. baking soda
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1/4 cup water
* 1 egg
* 1 Tbsp. vanilla
* 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup rolled oats
* 1 cup golden raisins and/or milk chocolate pieces
* 3 cups round toasted oat cereal (such as Cherrios)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in water, egg, and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour until combined. Beat in as much of the rolled oats as you can with mixer. Stir in any remaining rolled oats. Stir in raisins and oat cereal.

2. Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls about 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store cookies in tightly covered container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Makes 24 (2-cookie) servings.

Runny Noses ....I Supposes

Poor Miss Lils has had a runny nose since Monday....she's been fine except she can't breathe at night to nurse....and snot bubbles are a common occurrence from her face during the day.

This morning I caught her standing at the table (yes on the bench...nothing and no one is safe) and she had her babies lined up giving them medicine and wiping their noses! I was filled with such pride! She is such a good mommy already at 16 months! Sweet baby!


Happy Friday to Y'all!!!

Say What?

Don't ya just love the English Language? Words are pronounced and spelled different then you think. Or song lyrics...Sounds like one thing and it's another. That's why the Singing Bee on CMT is so funny! That is my life....For years I'll sing a song and come to find out I've been wrong all this time. My husband will hear me singing and just shake his head at me! A few months back we bought the new Reba cd and we were singing away to "Consider me Gone"
I'm singing:

If i'm not the one thing you can't stand to lose, If i'm not that arrow to the heart of you, If you don't get drunk on my kids....

Then I stop and think...get drunk on my kids....well that's weird. I grab the lyrics and realize...ha ha. If you don't get drunk on my KISS

(So on with the really long story that supposedly has a point!)

My inlaws come over every Wednesday night for dinner! I usually make something really yummy and follow with a kick booty dessert, but yesterday we were finishing up celebrating Mini Me's 9th birthday. She picked Matitos Mexican Food for dinner...so hubby brought home some fantastic Fajitas and all the fixins! Mini Me wanted me to make my Banana Pudding...(ok it's not mine, but Eagle Brand's recipe)


Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 (4-serving) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream
  • 36 vanilla wafers
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice

Instructions

  • COMBINE sweetened condensed milk and water in large bowl. Add pudding mix; beat until well blended. Chill 5 minutes.
  • FOLD in whipped cream. Spoon 1 cup pudding mixture into 2 1/2-quart glass serving bowl.
  • TOP with one-third each of the vanilla wafers, bananas and remaining pudding. Repeat layering twice, ending with pudding mixture. Chill thoroughly. Garnish as desired.
  • For fun individual pudding desserts for guests; prepare mixture and layers in individual serving dessert dishes or cups with stems. Serve chilled.

The oldest child just got his glasses yesterday and everyone was commenting on how handsome he looks. He would rather roll over and die b/c all he can think about is the ragging at school the kids are going to give him the next day. I tried to explain that no one will even notice. Then he reminds me he's 13 and yes the kids will notice...and that I have to say those things b/c I'm his mom!

(Rewind to realizing son was blind)

Sitting at Fuddrucker's for a family dinner...(one of our last ones since Demon baby doesn't sit still longer than 12 mins in a restaurant)
I notice this really funny sign while we are sitting eating and tell the kids to read it....

Oldest child: "What does it say?"

Me: "Well you tell me...."

OS: "I can't see it"

Me: "Ha ha real funny...read it"

OS: "I'm serious....I can't read the words...it's blurry. You can see that far?"

Me: "Yes....omg Gray....You've got to be kidding...that sign is huge....Omg you can't see...how long has this been going on?....hey other kids...read that sign to me...." (middle child reads it....Mini Me says she can see it but the words are too big, she doesn't know how to say them ) "Ok y'all are good....omg Gray Mommy is freaking out"

OS: "What? It's not normal to not see that far? All the kids walk up to read the board at school"

Me: "We're making you an eye appt"

Sure enough...the poor child is 20/80 and 20/60 in his eyes...I'm 20/20 so I just assumed all the kids were glasses free! I feel like such a horrible mom for not ever asking if the kids could see.
The eye store called and said the glasses were ready and so we picked them up yesterday after school. He was shocked at how many signs he could read from far away! I nearly wept w/happiness!

(Back to present)
So In laws are checking out the glasses...and Mini Me is telling the Fuddrucker's story again!


Mini Me: "Yeah there were really big words like Ominiousess...that I can't even say let alone spell"

(ok for starters I don't even know what word she was trying to say...and that word wasn't even close to being on the sign)

I hug her and say "that's cute honey"

My husband gets that 'ah ha I got you moment' look on his face. I can feel an embarrassing story coming on.

Hub: "Tell them your story"

Me: "What are you talking about?"

Hub: "The other night when you were trying to spell your word for your blog."

Me: "What word"

Hub: "Rampant"

Me: "Hush"

Hub: "No it's funny...all this time she thought the word was 'rampped' and it's 'rampant'"

Me: (face beet red) "Well it's not my fault... accents make it sound like the way I was spelling it. "

I think my hubby thinks I'm truly a blond under all my dark hair. I tell him he shouldn't complain b/c that means I need him around......to be my superstar of speech! ha ha!

Wishful Wed....3 Minutes




Well my dear friends it's that time again!
Wishful Wednesday over at The Seattle Smith's
Today's topic is
I wish I could spend 3 minutes in __________ shoes.

If I had 3 minutes I'd like to be in Faith Hills shoes!



I would love to have the voice of a Southern Angel. I try so hard to sing my guts out...but sadly I need to just stick to the shower! Faith exudes sex appeal ....I would love to be on stage singing to thousands! It wouldn't be bad to come home to Tim Mcgraw either! raaar (I sure hope my husband doesn't read this blog post ha ha)

Girlfriend Gab and Giveaway

So I was talking to my BFF Taylor on the phone this morning (Jimmy Choos & a Baby Too)
and I got to thinking about the silly things us girls chat about....

Don't know how the subject came up, but I mentioned about tucking the girls in my bra making sure their headlights were pointing in the same direction. She busted out laughing and had no idea what I was talking about.

Me: "You know....you tuck them in so one girl isn't pointing off in one direction and the other is pointing straight!"

Her: "No I have never done that...Never thought about it"

Me: "Really....well I do...." thinks to self (maybe it's b/c I'm older and mine are sagging...she has young 20ish old boobs still happening and I'm in my 30's....hmmmm)

Her: "You're silly....but now you're gonna make me think about it next time"

ha ha I guess that's why God invented Girlfriends...I mean does your husband really want to have a go at conversations like this?

Your girlfriends know what your talking about when you tell her you cried over a "On Star Commercial on the radio. My husband just says...you're such a girl.

Your girlfriends get not having the right shoes with your outfit. Your husband just says any will do.

Your girlfriends understand that some days you really just need that chocolate truffle maybe two. Your husband reminds you that all you do is complain your belly jiggles so why eat it.

Your girlfriends know what you mean when you say "Calgon take me away"
Your husband just thinks ..."ohhh bathtime...yeah baby"

My husband will try occasionally to be my best 'girl'friend. We'll be out shopping at the mall or out to eat and he'll say

Him: "OHHH see that chick over there...she could so be your best friend"

Me: "Omg she soo could...I love her outfit"

My hubby really does know me well, but he's no girlfriend BFF!!!

Now on to the awesome-ly cute giveaway.
If you haven't check out sweet and spunky Short Southern Momma's blog yet you are missing out! She has been making me giggle and inspiring me to be more chic these past few weeks!
Head on over and give her a read and check our her awesome prize!!

Insane In The Membrane


Have you seen those kids out while you're shopping....You know the ones...that are totally freaking out insane....running rampant....their voices are so loud it could break glass? And you wonder what is wrong with their parents...I mean why can't they control them?
Well I was one of those parents yesterday! I swear I wanted to die....You'd think I would be used to this...I'm a mommy to 4 kids, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I can honestly say not one of the my first 3 kids acted like this in public...let alone at 16m of age!
Lils is a different child. She has been putting shoes on since she was 11m old. She will get any shoe she sees and put the pairs together and then put them on to walk in them. She will get brushes out of drawers and brush your hair and/or the dogs...She mimics everything she sees. Which for some of the things she does at her age is amazing in my book. The other day I saw her in the cabinet playing w/the toilet paper and tampons. She was actually putting the tampon "down there"...I was shocked that she knew what to do....She is my shadow and goes everywhere I go, but I've only had 3 periods since giving birth to her and how can she possibly remember something like that?. Gross I know...but I'm trying to explain this child.
She climbs on the sink and turns the faucet on to get water to swish in her mouth like when we brush our teeth!
When the dog barks she tries to hush him w/her hand like she has seen us do.
She will shout "Uh Oh" whenever something is not in it's place.
Lils will carry the laundry to the utility room for washing. She tries to hang towels up after showers. She likes lotion on her hands after her shower to rub on her legs. She is so observant it's not funny.
She will empty the bottom 2 shelves out of the pantry and then put everything back.
The other day she got out my baking sheets from under the stove and went to the pantry and got cookies out and put them on the cookies sheets!
She loves to get pens and paper and 'make lists'!
Did I mention she loves to clean? She will get wet wipes out and clean the floor and walls! Did I also mention she is just turning 16m today? I can't imagine what more this child will do in another few months!
She also acts like she is Miss Independent.....She doesn't want to just sit quietly...she has to see what everyone is doing.

Today I took my oldest to get glasses. I left the other 2 kids at home and Lils and Gray and I ventured out. I knew things would get dodgy so I asked hubby to meet us there on his way home from work and take the baby home. The minute we got there I knew I was in trouble. I put her in the chair next to me to fill out the paper work. She starts shouting "HI HI HI HI" and doing her goofy full teeth grin. Then walks over to the reception area and walks right in and starts looking at all the files. I'm thinking....Oh man this is trouble. I pick her up and cart her back the chair...just to have her do it again. Now you're probably thinking...just make her stay. Have you ever tried to bathe a cat? Then you understand! So I told her stand still and she did for a bit...just kept shouting "HI HI HI" and "Uh Oh" b/c the phone kept ringing and no one would answer it right away. They come for my son and took him for this exam and since he's 13 I let him go alone...I then went on a 20 min walk w/Lils. When we got back the waiting area was now full of people. Grayson had just come out and we had to wait another 20 minsb/c his eyes were dilated for the last part of his exam. I stood for a bit holding her (she does well when I'm standing) But my arms got tired.
I tried finding everything and anything in my diaper bag to entertain her, but she wanted only the table w/little brochures on it. I'm not talking a few brochures, I'm talking like 10 different ones... 10 stacks full! She went crazy on them. She laughing hysterically and just going to town flipping them in the air. I knew better than to stop her. I'm sure the people in there thought what a bad mom I was. I felt like it ....my son kept hiding his eyes and whispering..."what is she on?"
My phone rings and hubby is there to the rescue! Woohoo!
When I came back to the waiting room part of me wanted to say "Her Mom came to get her!" But honestly I love her just the way she is..well ....just as long as I am home and I can keep her contained! (grins)

It was my 1st Time!


(The birthday girl is in the zebra pants)

This was my 1st slumber party this weekend...awwww ...
Ok it was actually my 9yr old daughter's first slumber party...the theme was Black/Pink/White Zebra!

Here are a few photos....
The Tablescape

2 of our 4 Blessings!


Some extras...


After the dancing to some country music videos we did a really cool craft. About a year or so ago I saw this in the Family Fun magazine....I'm soooo glad I remembered it. i headed to Hobby Lobby and bought a bag full of cut up panty hose and got the girls started! They had a blast and better yet...the craft took about 30mins + woohoo

Panty Hose Jump Rope

Then it was time to cut the cake.....I had obsessed and procrastinated about making it. I have zero talent or creativity and wanted to get zebra stripes on the cake to match the party!....Luckily my friend and neighbor Tara came to my rescue!

Here is the break down of the cake...Mini Me helped spread the icing and decorate the nilla wafer heads...

First bake the cake and put a thin layer of icing on
Then cut Twinkies in half and lay them on the cake....spread a layer of icing above the Twinkies for a sheet
Add smashed marshmellows for pillows

Decorate Nilla wafers for the faces...lay them against the pillows and then add icing to the rest of the cake for a comforter

Lastly..have your friend come over and rescue you since you were too scared to attempt the Zebra print! Then thank her over and over "TARA THANK YOU"
Typical girls to smash their face in the cake...I had to have a picture! I think those will make terrific Thank You cards!
We put a DVD on and around midnight I was getting a bit drowsy! Off to bed...or so I was hoping....I could hear them chatting until about 2am this morning...needless to say I'm exhausted. My daughter woke up w/her hair matted together! I guess the girls were hoping to get toothpaste on her face while she slept, but instead it ended up in her hair! ha ha!

OHHH it was so much fun, but I have to admit I'm glad this only happens once a year! ;o)

I Blame My Mom

I have no choice but to blame you....but I doooo oh so love it at the same time!

You see my mom instilled in me and my brother to be early! I'm talking really early for things. The theory is..maybe they take you early....maybe you get lost and when you find it you're on time. And it is true...some of those things happened, but I have this panic attack come over me if I'm on time. I even show up early to the movies...like 45 mins early. It drives people crazy! I like just sitting there in the dark theatre just visiting w/ur friend/or hubby waiting for the flick to start.

My brother and I would meet for lunch sometimes during the week and both show up early....and if the other one is there 1st and then one of us is a close 2nd we say "You're late" even if they are early! Sick I know.

I think it's starting to rub off on my children! I find them wanting to leave for things 30 mins b4 time etc....I'm proud, but then again I'm not!

So this morning I wake up and hubby is still in bed...he didn't set his alarm (my alarm are the kids who nudge me awake at 6:55 to come downstairs and get their breakfast started) Hubs is usually out the door at 6:20...so I figured he was tired and I'd wake him in a bit. I rush downstairs get the kids fed...them out the door by 7:30 and then I rush upstairs to shower. You see being a mommy to 4 I grab my shower 1st thing in the morning or my whole day is shot! I'm a schedule freak too...I need to be in the shower and dressed b4 heading out the door to take oldest child to middle school. Well I notice hubby still in bed and gently shake him and tell him I'm gonna jump in the shower and he can get in a minute! Well he flies out of bed shouting he's late he's late.

Me: (thoughts in head) Ok settle down...you won't be late...he can shower and you can jump in after him...you'll just have to rush a bit...all is well)

Hubs (takes his sweet time getting undressed)

Me: "here honey let me start the shower for you so it will be nice and warm...that way I can jump in after you..." (hopefully hinting to him I'm in a hurry...as usual)

Hubs (still pittle paddling)

Me: (I can feel my teeth wanting to grind....tell myself not to yell at him to hurry...b/c he'll go slower knowing I'm freaking out...stare at clock...settle it's only been 3 mins)

Hubs (gets in shower...starts washing really slowly)

Me: (omg doesn't he know he's going slow...should I bathe him myself? what is he doing....smile ...smile....it's all good...it's only been 6 mins....)

Hubs (still washing)

Me: (ok I really need to say something...we are hitting the 10 min mark. Maybe it's a test....I mean surely he sees me standing here naked trying to wait patiently.....ok now I have only 20 mins to shower and get ready and get the baby changed b4 heading out the door....I can do it I can do it. Don't say anything don't say anything.....oh nooooo)

"Honey....you gonna hurry there?" (great now you did it)

Hubs: (starts drying off...slowly....)

Me: (he must be enjoying this) Finally get in the shower and pile hair on head for a non hair wash day.....get out and downstairs w/just w/1 min to spare! Dang I'm good!

But still do you see how ridiculous this all is? I mean why on earth do I panic like that? Time is not my friend! It's a blessing and a curse I tell ya!

What in the World?

I did a post a week or so ago about BK AK (before kids after kids) and I have one more to add.....

Last night Little Lils walked up to me w/a nice stinky.....I look at my dear hubby...who looks at me with the 'Yeah right' look on his face! What is it with men and smelly diapers?

So we head upstairs to her room and sure enough ...whew weeeee...what in the world is that in her diaper?

I can't for the life of me figure out what I fed her and I'm racking my brain. I've got the diaper pretty much under my nose staring at it....and then I have the "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh right I remember" moment.

About this time hubs is standing in the doorway with this odd look on his. I glance over and shout....

Me: "Grapefruit....that is grapefruit....look how weird it looks after it gets squeezed in the colon"

Hubs: "No, that is gross"

Funny how after having children you are obsessed with what you put in them and what is coming out!



It's More Than Just Hump Day

It's Wednesday! My favorite day of the week.

Wednesday means a few things.....

1. One step closer to the weekend
2. A clean house
3. Something delicious is for dinner
4. Something delicious is baking in the oven!

You see every Wonderful Wednesday my In Laws come to dinner! I am truly blessed with a terrific Mother/Father In Law and hopefully they feel the same! They come right at dinner time and help entertain the little one so Mommy can actually have a bite. Those with multiple kids realize the joys of the small thing in life!

I meal plan every Sunday for the entire week, but pay special attention to this day! My FIL is a sucker for all things sweet! I pride myself in my cooking. But where my real passion lies is with baking! I love my Southern Living cookbooks and have tons of recipes still yet to try!

Tonight on the menu:
Quick Chicken Noodle Soup (5pts for those on WW)

Crusty bread

Chocolate Marble Sheet Cake
This was simple and quick to make! You can see Little Lils helping...she is a little Homemaker in the making!
So happy Wednesday to y'all!


Wishful Wed....Lady In Red



Wishful Wednesday is a fun way to think about the things in our life that maybe we think could be different...hop over to Kelsey's blog to see how this all got started!

This week's topic is:

'I wish' .... I could have worn the gown that ______ wore at the 67th Annual Golden Globes Award!

Granted mine isn't from the 67th ....I forget which one, but.......
Eva Longoria's red dress rocked the red carpet! Hubby and I eloped ....a romantic perfect incredible day back in November 2006. I tried to have a friend duplicate this dress in white for me for when we had a reception for our friends in family, but it didn't work out! :o(
My hubby always wants to see me in red and this dress would probably knock his socks off!!!

Weekend Waaahoo!

Wow! I needed a few days of recovery! Ha Ha

Friday recap: (I'd post pics but I look constipated in half! Pretty huh? grins)
My BFF (her blog), her hubs, and her Mini Me came over for dinner. I made a Mexican Lasagna that rocked btw! The Strawberry Meringues came out more like cotton candy. Not the goal I was going for. My soon to be 9yr old daughter wanted me to make them just like that for her Slumber Party this coming Saturday. Now mind you I am scared and excited for that party! It's my 1st and her 1st sleepover! Anyone have any game ideas for 9yr old girls? I have the tablescape, decorations, cake, dinner, and breakfast the next morning planned....other than that I need help!!!
The theme is black/pink/white zebra print! I can't wait to blog out her party.
Ok back to Friday.....So the men made us margaritas and then shots of tequila! From what I can remember they must have been really strong. My BFF and I were having too much of a good time...I think our laughter made our sweet men shake their heads! They didn't seem to mind too much since they were busy w/the ps3!
Tay helped me make some tissue pom pom's for the slumber party! They turned out sooo cute! I thought I would hang them over the table.



Saturday recap: I woke up at 7:15am w/little Lils smacking me in the head....OH MY HEAD. I felt like I had been rolled over by a steam truck. and OH NO...THIS WAS MY DATE DAY. MY INLAWS WERE COMING AT NOON. There was no way I was going to make it. Hubby told me too bad so sad....take a shower...take 2 of these and a tall glass of water! Thankfully 2 hours later I was in tip top shape!

I put Lils down for her nap and we bolted out the door for
Pappadeaux's! Yummo! We started off w/so much food you would have thought we'd had not eaten in years! We didn't have to rush and had all the time in the world!! We shared Oysters, Greek Salad and a bowl of Crawfish Bisque JUST TO START WITH! Then we both ordered some sandwiches! I had a fried Tilapia w/a cocktail/tartar sauce mix w/purple onions....and the most delicious shoestring fries! For dessert....yes we weren't done, we had a miny trio of sweets....small creme brulee, bread pudding, and small slice of pecan pie w/vanilla bean sauce! Girls I was in heaven!
I of course had to txt to see how Lils was doing...she was still asleep! ha ha
To round off the date we headed to the gun store to check guns out for me. We are both about to apply for our CHL and I want something cute!
Our next date is to the gun range!! ;o)
We headed home and found out Lils slept 3.5 hrs and the poor inlaws didn't get to spend but about 30 mins with her! I guess that means we need to do this again and soon!
I had a fabulous afternoon w/my husband. It was nice to get away for a few hours without the 4 kids!

Sunday recap:
Cowboys lost...nuff said!

SATURDAY IS OUR FIRST DATE SINCE HAVING LILS 15 MONTHS AND 21 DAYS AGO...
Ok it's probably all our fault....we just don't like leaving our kids and since I'm still nursing Lils we always used that excuse. But I'm sooooo ready!

We try to take the kids out for a family meal once a weekend, but w/Lils in her new "I am going to sit here for only 5 mins before my meltdown so beware or I'll throw stuff around the place and scream the loudest you've ever heard" stage, we just stay home. Enough said!

My in laws are babysitting Lils (the big kids have playdates) and are totally ready! They have been begging us for months to go go go. Yippee!!

So hubs and I are heading to our favorite restaurant, "Pappadeaux's", and we are going to sit there and take as long as we want to eat! In fact I think I'll just sit there staring into my hubby's gorgeous brown eyes and draw hearts on his hand! (name that country song)

I've already picked out my dress and shoes and perfume and and and!!!
Here's to a fabulous Saturday Night!
