last day....

My last day to get everything pulled together for camp, and what am I doing??  I'm baking cookies first thing in the morning, so the kiddos have some treats for the weekend while I'm away!  As if I don't already have enough to do today!  Geez...  I'm making monster cookies and I'm hoping that the name alone keeps me scared away from having one, even tho they are starting to call my name louder, and LOUDER and LOU....well, you get the idea!  I will have more than my share of treats this weekend at Camp, I don't need to start early!  My first time making these and the kids all had one and said they are good!  You know you don't bake much when you hear one the girls telling another girl..."she's making cookies, and they're for us, and for no special reason at all!"  Hahaha..!  What a hoot she is ;)

How many of you have kids home from school today??  Of all days, I have them all home today!  They had monday off, then went back for Tues and Wednesday, now today off for some kind of fall recess, then back to school for Friday!  What's up with that?!  You would think that they would have just given them Tuesday off or else tomorrow off.  But whatev, they're here, and I hope they are good girls for me today!
I'm off to get something accomplished!
Happy Thursday everyone!
ETA...Kendra, the recipe for these cookies is from the Rockford cook book...Maria Bratt's recipe.
4 eggs
1/3 lb. butter
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 1/3 C. sugar
1 tsp. white Karo syrup
1 lg. bag M&M's
6 C. quick oatmeal
1 tsp. vanilla
2 2/3 tsp. baking soda
2 C. peanut butter
1 C. chocolate chips
mix all ingredients together .  Roll into balls and flatten. Bake 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
I actually only put in about 5 Cups of oatmeal, and they came out good!
