all of my roomates were gone today, so i had the house to myself which was so, so, so needed.
i love the feeling of getting things done alone without worrying about being interrupted/hearing a dog yelp constantly.
i do admit, though, that i feel like tori homemaker today since i:
a) cleaned the (disgusting) kitchen
b) did laundry
c) made a batch of cookies
it was actually quite comforting & i wish i had more days to spend like this.
I used the recipe for the peanut butter oatmeal cookies that Nick & I pretty much made up a few months ago. They're so good everrrytime. & i have probably already had five of them.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup butter(i use the light kind)
1/4 cup natural crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
3 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
(you could really use any kind of milk/milk alternative, i just prefer almond)
1)combine butter, peanut butter, eggs, & sugar
(i usually melt my butter slightly first)
2)add remaining ingredients
3)lightly grease baking stone/sheet and drop spoonfuls of batter onto it
4)bake at 375 for about 10-12 minutes until golden.
i try to use mostly organic ingredients because it is what i opt for over conventional foods..
They really are quite healthy!
& damn delicious.
So, now i must find my creative niche & make a ton of necklaces to sell at next Sunday's art attack!
i am hoping to sell a lot & make a little bit of Christmas money.

I am ready for some dancing tonight at Downtown with wolf-e-wolf!
but not ready to face the cold.
