No Bake Night!

Today seemed SO long at work – it probably didn’t help that I had a horrible, pounding headache for most of the afternoon.

 

Around 3:30, I had some Candy Cane Lane tea and almondina cookies to take my mind off of my headache.

I had some Aleve in the car – the only thing that works for my headaches – so I took some on the way home. My headache was already getting better by the time we got home, so I went to the WW meeting near our to see the ladies I know there. Since we’ve been going to the gym after work on Tuesdays lately, I hadn’t seen them in a few weeks and I missed them! After WW, I went by the grocery store to pick up some more milk and came home.

 

Dinner? Leftovers with one twist – lots of green instead of fruit!

1 slice of the frittata from last night, some leftover roasted potatoes, plus a BIG simple salad of fresh romaine, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Why so simple? I was just too lazy to get out anything else for the salad  :) 

 

Why was I so lazy? BECAUSE….I was making No Bakes tonight!  Nick asked for them and I had everything I needed, so now we have these:

Pure, cocoa -y goodness.

 

This is my mom’s recipe for No Bake cookies and they’re one of my favorite cookies ever.

 

Her recipe is SUPER easy, too, but they do not set up if the weather isn’t right (muggy) AND you have to have to a stopwatch or timer with you.

 

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • vanilla

Put sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

Let it boil EXACTLY 3 minutes!  Then take off the heat and stir in the cocoa, oats, and vanilla.

Spoon onto wax paper or parchment paper and let set.

Enjoy!

 

 

Here are a few things I prepped for dinner tomorrow night while packing my lunch…
