Amazing & Easy M&M Cookies!!!

Since we forgot eggs, the recipe wasn't in order, I didn't record, etc.....

SO- as requested here is the recipe for my M&M Cookies:

2 Sticks of Softened Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar

Cream together above
Add the following:

2 Eggs
1.5 t Vanilla

Cream all five ingredients together
Mix and then add the following:

2.5 Cups Flour
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Salt

Once everything is mixed add as many M&M's as you would like!  I add about 2 Cups (-;

Bake at 350* until they're as done as you would like (about 10 minutes)

Hope you enjoy!

Our Meal Plan 8.8 to 8.14.12

CRAZY week!!  BUT as far as meal planning goes it's an easy week!

I get so excited when there are a bunch of "free spaces!"  You know, like Bingo- it's an easy cross off!

We have family in town this week so we haven't been home much (-:

Here is the rundown for the week

Event Dinner (my husband got us VIP tickets to a sponsor's tent)
Dinner at my Parent's house
Family Reunion Day
Playdate Tuesday with B & A2

that left me with JUST 3 DAYS TO PLAN!  Wooohoo!

Chicken packets (because boy do we still have a weeks worth of veggies from our CSA to use)
Turkey Burgers, Corn on the Cob, Green Beans
Fish and whatever other veggies are left

Hope you have a fantastic week & keep cool!!  (-:
