For the most part, Multi-Tasking is a Frugal use of time. Especially in the kitchen!
Tonight for dinner we are having Tuna Sandwiches and Tater Tots with a salad. So I threw some eggs on to boil and suddenly I had nothing to do. With my boys having their own apartment now the kitchen stays pretty clean, so I wasn't loading the dishwasher and tidying up. Everything that goes into Tuna for Hubby and I was in the bowl along with mustard and mayo so I thought while the eggs boiled it would be a good time to try out a recipe a wonderful friend posted to our group yesterday.
I've been cleaning out the pantry and cabinets and had three jars of peanut butter that were almost empty. Why is that? Oh well, anyway, the recipe is for Peanut Butter Cookies. Simple as can be!
One cup sugar
One cup Peanut Butter
Yield 12 large cookies
For me that was Two eggs, etc....totally forgetting I don't have ravenous mouths that eat cookies any more. Realized that too late....lol! They've only been gone a week and a half, so I'm still getting used to doing things differently.
Whipped up the batter...
Then plopped about 8 handsful of dough on a greased cookie sheet, made the fork marks.
And, slid the cookie sheet into a preheated 350* oven for 9 mins.
Then I peeled the eggs for the tuna, chopped those up and tossed into the bowl with the other ingredients. Threw tater tots on another cookie sheet to start thawing (saves energy).
Finally the buzzer buzzed and I tasted the cookies. They are really good!!
You'll want to try this recipe. I am thinking it is so versatile!
With HALF the sugar and baked for another minute or two, these cookies could be crumbled and put on an Asian Salad.
Next time I will add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and a couple pinches of cinnamon to the recipe.
Well, I'll have more to say about Multi-Tasking in the kitchen a bit later. Right now, I'm off to update my blog and munch on these cookies. Look how big they are!
