Happy Mondays

Strangely enough I've had a strong desire to go for a run. So I packed up the kiddo and headed to the park. Never knowing what to expect of Florida's weather, but knowing that I usually end up sweating, I just threw on a pair of shorts and a T-shirt. Silly me. I bundled Eli up in a warm coat and started my brisk walk. Five minutes later, I was headed back to the car completely freezing! Elijah was not happy that I was putting him back in the car so soon. So when we got home, I decided to make the living room his playground. I took all the cushions off the couch and put them on the floor so he would have a few different levels to climb up and down and threw in a bunch of throw pillows. He ended up having tons of fun!

After Elijah went down for a nap, I made some yummy (and super easy) snacks for Cliff to take to work tomorrow to share with the office:

Secret-Center Cookie Cups

1 roll Pillsbury refrigerated peanut butter cookies
18 mini milky way candy bars
1 container chocolate frosting
18 paper baking cups

1. For each cookie cup, wrap heaping tsp. cookie dough around 1 candy bar, enclosing it completely and forming a ball. Place in paper baking cup; place cups 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

2. Bake 8-12 minutes or until golden brown (centers will sink slightly). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

3. Frost each cookie cup.

This is just my version of the recipe. The original recipe can be found at Happy baking! :)
