Hey, friends! I wish I had another fun recipe to share today, but I’d be lying if I said I did. I spent the weekend up in Syracuse visiting my sister; it was family weekend at her college, so up the family went. Unfortunately, our big ol’ family van decided it was high time to get sick, and since it was a Sunday when that happened, the local auto places had no access to the part we needed. So my dad stayed up in Syracuse with the van while my mom rented a car and drove home with my grandmother, her boyfriend, and me. Good times!
To be honest, we probably would’ve just spent another night in Syracuse if not for the fact that I have a flight to catch this afternoon. I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I’m flying out to Wisconsin for an on-site interview. I applied to this company at the request of my BFF and didn’t expect anything to come of it, but one thing led to another and now they want to meet with me in person. Pretty crazy, huh? So I’m flying out today and have all-day interviews and tours tomorrow, and then I fly home bright and early Wednesday morning. I’m a little bit nervous, but mostly just curious – even if I don’t wrangle a job offer out of this, it’ll be a great experience. :)
So that’s that. I’ll leave you with a photo of some AMAZING peanut butter-chocolate chip-oatmeal cookies I made a few weeks ago. My family couldn’t get enough of these suckers.
I used this recipe, and it definitely lived up to the 4 1/2 star rating. I appreciate the use of whole wheat flour and the small amount of canola oil; most of the fat in these cookies comes from the peanut butter. These made the perfect indulgent, sweet, late-night treat.
Again, sorry for the sparse posts! I’m probably going to bring my laptop with me, since I won’t have much to do tonight and tomorrow night, so who knows; maybe I’ll get a post up tomorrow night. In any case, happy Monday, friends!
