The weather in my neck of the woods:
oh so humid!!!

One of my simple pleasures:
packing lunches with special treats for my kiddos

On my bedside table:
"new moon" still & again

On my TV:
adam watching some playhouse disney before getting ready for his pm prek class

On the menu for tonight:
probably some shrimp tempura rolls & spicy mayo- really craving it!

On my To Do List:
lots! grocery store, laundry, baking...

New Recipe I tried last week:
not new, but haven't made it in a while & they are so easy!

easy peanut butter cookies-

1 cup peanut creamy butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

mix the egg till fluffy, then throw in everyitng else. scoop into balls, the press with fork to make the criss cross pattern. bake @350 for 8 minutes. perfect cookies!

In the craft basket:
nothing :(

Looking forward to:
hearing about how first days have gone!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
don't have anything off the top of my head...
