Satisfying My Sweet Tooth

Fudgey Cocoa No Bake Treats/No Bake Cookies

I was craving something sweet but I wanted it to be something quick. I looked
to see what I had for ingredients and I had everything to make the no bakes.
The recipe is easy and quick to put together. I have trouble waiting for the
treats to harden so I always put them in the fridge so I have one sooner.

If anyone is interested in making these I am including the recipe here

3 cups quick - cooking rolled oats

2/3 cup crunchy peanut butter ( I didn't have any so I just used what I had)

1/2 chopped peanuts (optional) I didn't have any peanuts left

2 cups sugar

1 stick butter or margarine

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup cocoa

2 tsp vanilla extract ( I didn't measure just poured in a bit)

Mix together oats peanut butter and peanuts ( if you have any). Set aside.

Combine sugar, butter, milk and cocoa in medium saucepan. Cook over

medium heat, stirring constantly and until mixture comes to a boil.

I pour this mixture over top of the other ingredients in a big mixing bowl.

Mix well and place heaping spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper

or foil. I place them in the fridge so they harden faster.

I had two cookies with a tall cup of milk. Randy also had the same but then
I noticed later he was getting another one out of the fridge. I guess he also
had a sweet tooth to satisfy.

Family means so much to me!!!

I visited with my sisters Darcy and Michelle today. It has been awhile since we have gotten together, with our schedules as busy as they are it is sometimes hard to find the time. We did a lot of talking and laughing, just catching up on everything going on. My sister Michelle made a delicious dinner of grilled chicken, steamed cauliflower and rice. We are planning to do this again soon at my house.

Sunshine & A Tree Stand

Yesterday Randy had the day off from work and said he wanted to build a tree stand. I went along to help. I did cut some of the wood and helped to get the supplies. It did not seem like a fall day at all. The sun was shining bright and it was quite warm.

Kinda new to the land of blogging!!!!

I was going to say I am new to this but I am not. I signed up to blogger in January but I never posted anything. I was going to give myspace or facebook a try but decided to give the world of blogging another try. I am not sure yet what I am going to be posting on but I do hope to make it interesting for all that read it.
