Heat ~ Carol Nasca ~ Peanut Butter Cookies ~ Amazing Animals ~ Tucker Golfing


Good 58º clear sunny morning.


Yesterday was bill paying day. I did that. I watered, early. By noon it was 90º, 1:30 94º,  and we topped at 102º.

As predicted for this week, it is all triple digits... this does not look good!




Today high school friend, Carol Nasca, is having a brain surgery called Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt. A shunt will be installed to relieve extra liquid build-up in the brain. It's fairly easy and she should be back home with her fur babies really soon.


Ok, here is a super good, easy, 3 ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe.... a fav:


Yield: 15 or so cookies
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8-10 minutes
Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1. Preheat oven to 375º. Mix ingredients until it becomes cookie dough-like consistency.
2. Using a cookie scoop, roll into balls.
3. Press down on each ball with a fork, using a criss-cross method.
4. Bake approximately 8-10 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK. They will burn easily.
5. Sprinkle sugar on them when they come out of the oven, if you like. I don't.

When they are cool, drizzled on some melted chocolate if you like. I do!!

August 1st
The month of August has many special days... It's :
National Golf Month

National Parks Month
National Napping Month

and it's.....
National Rasberry Cream Pie Day today

Raspberries are one of the gems of summer. Sweet and tasty, it is loved by millions of people (and birds, too!) With the arrival of ripe berries, it is time to make and enjoy some of your favorite dessert treats. High on the list for raspberry lovers, is raspberry cream pie.
Make this a super raspberry day. Go out and pick your own berries. Then, make a raspberry cream pie. Better still, make one for you, and another to give away to a family member, a neighbor, or a friend. Then, dig in and eat a piece of pie....Yummmm!

I am in awe of that animal photo. Those cats are supposed to be eating that deer. :)

The peanut butter cookies look so yummy. I can never figure out why John loves peanut butter and Butter Fingers but hates pb cookies. Go figure!

Prayers for your friend to come thru the surgery with flying colors!

Stay in and stay cool!

Watch out neighbors- both our vehicles have been washed. It might rain here, too. The air is absolutely delicious waking up to.

God speed on your friends's procedure. The brain is truly a wondrous creation. Kudos to those brave soles who specialize in its care.
