from the weekend

This weekend was one of those rare times when all the housework, laundry and chores were done enough (it's never really all done, is it?) that we were able to relax and fill our time with plenty of other enjoyments... a meeting at the farm looking ahead to the work of spring, a lunch with an old friend, time for cooking, baking, swimming, reading, family, friends, games and more.

Our friend, donning what the children have dubbed the "loser's" hat. Very prophetic, indeed, as Daniel won the match (was it the hat, Annie, or did you let him win...?)

Sophia working on her new favorite snack (recipe to come later this week.)

And a recipe from the weekend to share today, three-ingredient peanut butter cookies. I certainly didn't come up with this recipe, but love how easy it is to make (and it's gluten free!).

Simple Peanut Butter Cookies

1 c. peanut butter

1 c. sugar

1 egg

(I add a little salt and baking soda to this mix, mostly because our homemade peanut butter is unsalted, and the soda helps to lighten the cookie a bit.)

Mix until smooth. Spoon onto a baking sheet and press with a fork. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, more or less depending on how large your cookies are.

Hope your weekend was full of enjoyment, too.

Nope. Totally didn't let him win. Still deciding whether or not I'm going to blame the self-fulfilling prophecy of that hat...
