THEY WON'T LAST LONG

I was greeted by a new huge baby heifer calf this morning when I entered the barn. She was laying beside her mother. The mother is a black cow and the heifer calf is white and looks like a football player. She has a black marking under each eyes. I'll try to have a picture of her tomorrow if I can remember to bring my camera.


This afternoon I was looking for a peanut butter recipe from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog recipe files. Their recipes always looks so good. I made these Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies. They were so good.


Here's a close up  of them. I rolled them in a ball and flattened them with a little pat from my hand. 


I filled the  cookie jar to overflowing. We ate those that didn't fit in the jar...
The recipe asked for 1 1/2  cups of trail mix. Since it was the only thing that I didn't had, I made my own trail mix with what I had on hand. I used some raisins, currents, orange flavored dried cranberries, chocolate chips, chopped pecans, chopped almonds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. My husband loves them.   A nice little snack with a cup of tea. They won't last long.  JB
