When you can taste it …

This past weekend was one of the rare weekends when it’s just me and my boys. And it was the first weekend where it was just me and my three boys. SuperDad was off at the races taking care of business and I spent the weekend wrangling the crazy dudes through errands, outdoor play, indoor play, diaper changes, potty breaks and more errands.
It was a nicely productive weekend considering and all my dudes were champs. (Things seem to go a lot more smoothly when it’s a SuperDad-only weekend as emotions run higher when the Momster is around.) All-in-all, it was a pretty good time for everyone … I think.
One thing that was somehow in the back of my subconscious mind, was the taste of peanut butter cookies. My post-partum-ness has led me to LOTS of cookie baking. Perhaps it’s the endless hunger of early breast feeding or maybe the fact that I can now lick the cookie dough bowl as I am not carrying a youngin around inside anymore … regardless, I’ve made cookies about every other day since the littlest guy made his appearance (and I returned from the hospital of course). It was arguably two full days where all I could taste (or imagine tasting) was the sweet delectable crumbliness of Peanut Butter cookies.
Well, I finally gave in on Sunday afternoon, and while the boys were napping off a two-plus-hour  playdate in the strangly warm weather I dug out the peanut butter cookie recipe that SuperDad and I used back when we used to eat cookies for dinner at least twice each week (calories per dollar it’s a pretty legit way to get some nutrition … especially if paired with a simple salad or maybe Asparagus for fiber).
The result … perfection. I didn’t have cravings really ever while pregnant so perhaps I saved it all up for now. Regardless, in the words of a “Southerner,” “I love me some Peanut Butter cookies” and two days later when we’d made yet another trip to the grocery store, the cookies were even better with chocolate chips added in.
