Since D came home the other night with a jumbo sized bag of mini reese’s peanut butter cups I had to find a way to use them somehow. Reese’s chocolate chips cookies came to the rescue. Though I’m going to need to make many batches of cookies to use up the reese’s, I have now at least made a dent in the bag.
I haven’t made cookies in a while so I knew a glass of milk with a plate full of warm freshly baked cookies would be a great surprise for D after his post work nap. Yes, unlike the majority of the working world, D still has time to pencil in daily naps. Holding onto his toddler roots, D gets tired and puts himself down for a nap. It doesn’t matter if it’s 2 pm or 8 pm, when he’s tired, he is tired. I personally don’t feel like I have this freedom anymore. I definitely appreciate a good snooze in the middle of the day but just feel like I can’t take a nap after work since it’ll disrupt my entire sleep cycle, keep me up til 3am and make for a miserable sleep deprived next day of work.
Oh the joys of college when I’d come back from class at noon, shut the blinds and drift into a deep slumber before skipping off to the dining hall and sampling a bite of every fried food ever created. Those days are long gone.
Regardless, post nap or pre sleep a handful of soft warm cookies with a glass of milk can always brighten your day. Especially if you’re already a Reese’s superfan and love peanut butter in general – here’s looking at my boyfriend! He sure was quite pleased to wake up from his name to plateful of these!
