Last night, I started a quilt and actually finished the top this morning... 42 squares later. Then we started making more felt donuts. Then we made Santa Fe Soup- YUM! Then we made a few bracelets. Then we made Boiled Oatmeal Cookies. Have you ever had those things? Oh. My. Goodness. They are some count for real! I'm just doing my civic duty and providing you with the recipe today just in case you've never had them. I promise you... make them! You won't be disappointed!

3 cups of quick cooking oats
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup of butter or margarine
1/2 cup of milk
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a 2 quart saucepan stir together sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa
Stir just until butter melts and sugar is mixed in. Do not stir anymore
This is the MOST important step and if not done correctly, the cookies will not harden. Stir only until the mixture starts to bubble then STOP stirring and allow to boil
When mixture comes to a FULL ROLLING BOIL set a timer and cook for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat
Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and oats
Drop by teaspoon onto wax paper or pour into an 8x8 baker and cut into squares.
Let them cool and then eat... or don't even let them cool... just get a spoon and dig right in. Your welcome! I know you'll be thanking me later!
I'm going to do a few posts on the other projects we've done today as soon as the roads thaw and I can get home. Although, I've enjoyed being back "home" and sleeping in my old room and crafting all day with my mom.
