I am really looking forward to the upcoming week because there are actually some empty spaces on my calendar. Hooray! I am hoping to paint my laundry room and start decorating it. If the weather warms up (it snowed today), I am planning on doing a little yard work. And of course I have a bunch of yummy recipes that have been piling up because I’ve had no time to post lately.
I am sharing a recipe for No Bake Cookies. They are the most simple recipe ever, and everyone loves them. I am always amazed when I take them to potlucks and they are the first treats to disappear, because they are so fast to throw together. My boys and hubbie adore them!
Since it is the beginning of a new week, it is time for Menu Plan Monday over at Organizing Junkie. Here is my menu for this week:
Sunday: Orange Chicken, fruit salad, strawberry shortcake
Monday: Pecan Crusted Salmon, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, Cheddar Potato Strips Tuesday: Elena’s Chili casserole, salad
Wednesday: Homemade Pizza, salad, corn
Thursday: Clam Chowder, No Knead Bread
Friday: date night!
Saturday: Grilled Chicken, Roasted Parmesan Potatoes, fruit salad
No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large pan and boil for barely 90 seconds. Immediately stir in last three ingredients and spoon onto waxed paper. Let cool.
-I like to use half quick oats and half regular oats.
-You can use either creamy or crunchy peanut butter.
