This weekend, we made our annual trip to Jackson.
Can I just say I love this trip.
For me, it entails a nine to ten hour drive in an air conditioned Suburban with some great girl friends.
Sure there are some mad dashes to the feed zones, several frenzied hand-offs of musette bags, lots of yelling (and whistling) out the window at men in tight shorts...Who's complaining?! But the drive was also spent enjoying excellent company.
When we arrived in Jackson, we met up with our husbands, who treated us to a nice dinner and then took us to a fancy hotel (props to Jenn, the hotels are a lot nicer now that she is booking them).
The cyclist, however, has a different idea of fun when it comes to road trips. You see, he spent those same nine and a half hours ON A BIKE.
Over a lot of hills.
Just for fun.
On a bike. Did I say that already?
The kind you pedal.
Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter how he gets there. Just as long as he meets me at the finish line. Jackson's no fun without him.
This year, he found these tasty little cookies in his feed bags.
Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups quick one minute oats
Combine sugar, milk, butter and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Let boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, peanut butter until peanut butter melts. Add oats. Stir until mixture begins to stiffen a little (a minute or two). Drop by rounded clusters onto foil or waxed paper. Let set.
