Today was just one of those days that I just wished I could have had the day off. Not that I don't like my job it's just that I have been going strong since mid August and I really need a break.
I am also really starting to feel the pressure as the end of the trimester approaches. So many assessments that need to be finished and only 14 days to do it in. Yikes!
Needless to say I am really need some stress relieving food right now. Usually I would opt for chocolate, but I'm just not in the mood for that.
What I am in the mood for is peanut butter. So I decided to make some peanut butter cookies. This recipe is one that my mom use to make when I was a kid. I have no idea where it came from. All I know is it is one of the best peanut butter cookies that I have tried.
It tastes best when you use a real good brand name peanut butter, but I don't have any in the house right now so I'm going with a cheaper brand.
I'm sure these cookies will help chase away my blues and give me that positive outlook that I need to get these darn assessments done! Be gone dumb assessments! Be gone stress!
