Clearing Off the Balcony and Peanut Butter Cookies for Bowling

Ok, so those two subjects don't really go together, clearing off the balcony and peanut butter cookies, but I did them on the same day, so they are going together. I have been meaning to, and been needing to clear off our balcony of the 3 dead plants that resided there all winter. They were dead before than because thank to my mom...I can't grow plants, they just die. Thanks mom! Hahaha :) So I knew I had to get out there and throw them out, save the pots and put something new out there.

I bought a green mums potted plant for the table for St. Patty's Day, so I am trying to salvage it and I repotted it out on the balcony. I found at the dollar store of all place mini Aqua Globes, you know those pretty globes you put in the plant and it kinda waters them for you? Yeah I think that was my problem, not watering enough. So I am hoping this will help with that problem, and hopefully this plant and can thrive and grow and not die instantly. I am sure I will update if it dies or if, by some miracle it is still living.

Also, Friday was our last night of bowling on our Friday Late Nite League. We were too bring something to share with everyone, like a little party, so I decided since I was in a baking mood lately I would make peanut butter cookies. Now the best peanut butter cookie I have had has been from Blackbird Baking, right across the street from us. They are really soft and chewy, so good!! But I found a recipe for Mrs. Field's Peanut Butter cookies so I thought I would try them out. I wasn't too happy with them, they came out huge, the recipe made a ton and they were crunchy and I really don't like a crunchy, crispy cookie. Plus I had a migraine pretty much the whole time I was making them, so I was just done with them. I didn't go to bowling that night because of my migraine and I felt like I was gonna throw up any minute, so I didn't go. But the cookies were a big hit, only a few came back, so that was a plus!

That's all for now!

Eat, Drink and Be Merry...and Grow Plants!
