today's cookie: outrageous chocolate chip. peanut butter + oatmeal + regular chocolate chip cookie= outrageous. (grant's Christmas pick)

doesn't have classes any more. (except the ones he teaches)
doesn't have to buy any more text books.
gets to come home to his wife and baby instead of driving far away from us.
is done with grad school.
has his masters degree.

how could i have forgotten to tell you guys?! it's the big news of our life. grant is finished! woohoo. i am super proud of him, and so happy to have him home! so happy. those two years flew by, didn't they?

so when grant came home from his final class last wednesday night, i was waiting for him inside the kitchen door, with open arms, and.... peanut butter cookies.
because that is the kind of guy my guy is. he doesn't want cake. he just wants peanut butter cookies.
i made him another batch this week as part of his Christmas gift.


outrageous chocolate chip cookies
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup oats
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Cream first six ingredients. Add next four ingredients, then stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (do not over bake!). Yields 4 dozen cookies. 

what kind of food does your guy like to celebrate with?

pizza. always pizza.

I think it goes back to the Book It! days of grade school, where pizza got linked directly with accomplishments!

That's okay though - pizza is easy to do!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
