I feel completely spoiled because I’ve just had not one, but two of the best weekends in a row. This weekend just gone, I had the pleasure of spending all of my waking hours with my niece, who is just the best thing since Luke’s lobster rolls, and I know you think I’m being biased and all that but dude, who’s blog is this? Yeah. YEAH.
We hung out and ate and napped and ate and hung out and though I still have a couple of days with her (they leave on Wednesday morning), I am already heaving big sighs of wistful sadness because I always miss her so badly when we part 🙁 I suppose that makes this weekend the best and worst ever.
But last weekend was definitely just awesome. Aside from finding this delicious cheeseburger, I also felt the urge to bake peanut butter cookies and so I did! About 50 of them, to be precise.
I got this recipe off the genius of the twitterverse and it’s brilliant for those of you, who like me, love a soft cookie. The choc chips and peanuts from the chunky spread add a great texture to this crumbly cookie and I loved it. Definitely a winning recipe, and I think I’ve found a new favourite hobby: rolling little dough balls 😉
It’s so zen. You should try it!
