(1) Private Practice is becoming my new favorite show.
(2) I still love music by Rick Springfield.
(3) I made cookies yesterday with the kids. Every time I make cookies, I call my mom. Making cookies and my mom will always go together in my mind. (They are Monster Cookies - if you are in the area, you should really stop by after school. Monster Cookies are made with oats and peanut butter and chocolate chips and m&ms (no flour). We made these with Halloween m&m's.)
For Alison: This is the recipe I use for Monster Cookies, but I use 3 cups of peanut butter and one cup of chocolate chips and one cup of m&ms. Also, I don't mix in the m&ms but put them on top right before baking. It makes the cookies prettier. I also make half a batch, as it makes A LOT of cookies. If you have the freezer space and the time to bake them all, they do freeze great and my mom and dad like to eat them right out of the freezer.
