Snow and Too many Peanut Butter Balls!
Since last weekend we have been getting snow. The schools were closed Monday, Tuesday and Friday. I, I mean we were lucky enough to get to go to school for the two days. Now were are out of school for Christmas break. Thursday night my best friend Jenny and I got together and made two batches of Peanut butter balls and 3 batches of No Bake Cookies. We were in the kitchen for 3 1/2 hours. It took 20 minutes to make the cookies and rest of for the Peanut Butter Balls. And it made TONS. Jenny took 1/2 and I got 1/2. I am proud to say I have only had 1. We made so many cause I was going to put them in some tins for the teachers. I had made Peanut Butter Blossoms and these pretzel things. And after all that we didn't get have school. So those Peanut Butter Balls are in the freezer and are not coming out until Christmas Eve! Yesterday I made some more No Bake Cookies and got started on the roll out cookies and chocolate crinkles. The roll out and chocolate cookies needed to chill for an hour. We ended up taking Brett to the Dr. for his sore throat that he has had for 4 days. We found out it is probably from drainage. Although he hasn't had a runny or plugged nose all week, so I never would have thought it was from that. But we got some medicine with codeine to hopefully help with the pain. After that we fixed dinner and I made the chocolate crinkles. Today we are going to finish the roll out cookies and then make Molasses cookies for Matt, the only one he requested. So a busy day today!
