august 15 fish

brooke asked me last night if i wanted to watch the seahawks preseason game with her last night.

what??? she was staying home???

that never happens these days.

with 2 weeks left before college, she needs to be out and about.  yes, i’m trying my hardest not to tear up.

so i said “YES!” to an evening with her.

and russell wilson (our fish).

we made cookies (recipe below) and watched the game.

together.

a few people have private messaged me for the recipe so here it is…

MONSTER COOKIES (seahawks style)

1/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. butter, softened

3 eggs

1 c. peanut butter (i like jif creamy)

2 tsp. vanilla

1 small canister quaker oats (about 5-6 c.  ok to use quick or regular)

2 tsp. baking soda

1 c. mini chocolate chips

1 to 2 c. m&m’s (for seahaws use the blue, green and brown ones for the cookies… and eat the rest)

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix sugars and butter in bowl.  Add eggs.  Mix.  Add peanut butter and vanilla.  Mix.  Pour in oats and sprinkle in baking soda.  Mix.  add chocolate chips and m&m’s.  And if my kids aren’t eating them i add pecans!!  but that’s only for me. Refrigerate for 30  minutes.  Roll into balls size of golf balls.  place on ungreased cookie sheet.  bake for 11 min.  YUM!!!  oh, side note… once cooled we like to freeze them.  they are soooo good frozen… cold and chewy!  it’s a fisher thing.

*******

well, we ate some cookies and watched the first half.

then she got a call.

yep, left to watch the second half with a friend.

so i invited a friend over and we sat and opened a bottle of wine and watched the second half.

the perfect evening.

happy saturday.
