Heartwarming Vintage blog.
Are you tired of me talking "Wedding" yet? There is only about 3 weeks left. What will I talk about when it's over? lol
We went out to the Camp the other day to check it out one final time. The next time we are there, will be to set up for the rehearsal dinner the day before the wedding.
It's beautiful. Where I'm standing in this photo is where the building is that we will have a simple rehearsal dinner in the night before. The actual wedding will be down where those trees are. This is up on a hill, down below is the river which is where our cabin , and Jarad and Kates ( where the reception will be ) is.
Below they are talking with the grounds keeper. But "that" is the spot were they will say their vows.
I'm very lucky that Kate likes things simple and personal. All there personal touches are going to make the wedding really special and totally "them". I know Kate well enough to know that she is not a pink, lacey, ribbon and frills sort of girl :) So when I started making the invites for the rehearsal dinner, I kind of took my lead from the clean design of the announcement's. Of course when I asked Kate... she said.... "what ever you want to do it fine!" lol So....here they are ... finished, addressed and mailed.
Simple...I did use foam tape to give lift to the matted piece and I used only one little silver embellishment inside the flower :) Hopefully it's in keeping with her natural outdoors wedding theme.
The stamps are all Fancy Pants Designs
Okay.... yesterday on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter I shared a photo of these cookies while I was baking them and promised that I would have the recipe posted on my blog today...to here it is.
The deal is ... I'm not sure what to call them because it's kind of my own spin on couple of my favorite recipes. I would say it's like a monster cookie so that's what I'll call it :) They are SO easy!
Vicki's Monster Cookies oven 350 12 min?
2 sticks marg or butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 teas baking soda
1 1/2 cup oats (any kind)
1 pkg choc chips
1 pkg nut and choc mix ( peanuts/mixed nuts, raisins and m &ms) I find them at Dollar General ( see photo below)
Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars in large bowl. Add eggs, mix well. Add flour, soda, mix again.. then stir in oats. Add chip and nut mix
The length of time you bake will depend on how big you make your cookies. I made these smaller..but sometimes I make them jumbo. Just watch the first batch and judge from there. I like mine soft so I take them out just as they start to slightly brown and just let them sit on the pan a couple of minute before removing them.
Cool on wire rack
They freeze great!
(but if you plan on freezing any.. you better make a double batch :)
Because they are good!
Okay friends.... thanks for stopping by.... I appreciate you!
