I am somewhat of a blogging whore. My newest favorite activity is to check out fun and creative blogs. I find it inspiring and love checking out ideas that others have come up with. My latest find is June Cleaver Nirvana. Obviously, I was first tempted to click on the link simply based on the name. So glad that I did, too. Today's post is well worth the time. Check it out.
In honor of Texasholly's theme today, It's Not Me, It's You, I thought I would link over to our very favorite Forever Folding Laundry blog. Back in September, Keri posted a wonderful recipe for Pumpkin Cookies. I in no way appreciated the greatness of these cookies until Kacey made them as part of her "thank you for coming to Emi's birthday party" treat bag last weekend. SO GOOD! Compared to Martha's cookie of the month for October, Keri's cookies are easier to make and much more tasty. A gift of fall for your tummy.
I copied the Pumpkin Cookie recipe below, but you should really click on the links I provided to see the recipe (and photos) in all of their original glory.
4 cups unsifted flour
2 cups oatmeal
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
3 sticks butter
