Good Morning & Welcome to An Odd Little Post


First  I want to show you my clean kitchen!

I have a problem with this little  space by the stove.  Things fall down there!  I can only imagine what is behind the stove! (not going there)  the other day I dropped my little pan I melt butter in.  I was shocked the Cowboy  retrieved it with a snake catcher!  Those things sure come in handy!

Here's  the other end of the counter.  I love clean uncluttered  counters!

The other side of the sink is small.  It is the space I use for my Rustic  photos.  Rustic  because  I don't  edit or fancy up my subjects. 

And why  did I call  this an odd post?

My topics are scattered today.  

I just wanted  to share some photos  I have been  taking... 

We went out to a restaurant we have been trying to find for awhile.  The silly thing is it was right on a main street.  It was a ways out on the island.  We just didn't drive out far enough before. 

 We wanted  to go for the view! Gorgeous
 I had a Lemon Drop Martini.  
The Cowboy  said it tasted like sugar water.   Perhaps because of the Sugar an the glass.  Next time I will try with no sugar.  

I wanted a better  picture of the water glass.  Oh my I ❤ Love it!

I wanted  to ask if I could buy a couple but I was Chicken!  I will  next time for sure!  

Yesterday  we took the dogs to the dog park.  

Then we drove around looking for this house . . .

You will  see in the next photo these  shots were taken in the Fall . . . 
It was decorated  so cool in the  I wanted  to see if it is decorated  for Spring . . . 
Even though there was a spooky witch it was really,  really  well done!  Sadly we couldn't  find it yesterday.  

We even Google it.  No luck. 
But when I got home I asked on FB and someone  told me the address.   

We wanted to go see this house the other day after we had drinks where I wanted  to buy the glass.  

But I didn't  think to look it up till we were  already too far away and headed home.  And full as a tick from our delicious meal. 

This one you can find Google.   It is called The Kettle House . . .
It is really  cool and has lots of history.   It is now an Air BnB.  Click Here

And now back in the kitchen.  I warned you this is an odd post! 

  Today I am baking these cookies . . . 

They are featured  in this book 

Tessa’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter at room temperature
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into a bowl and mix together.
Whisk the butter and peanut butter together in another bowl. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Whisk the eggs one at a time into the butter mixture along with the vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture and whisk until combined.
Using a spoon, mix in the chocolate chips.
Cover the dough in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for at least thirty minutes but overnight is fine.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Remove the dough from the fridge. You might need to leave it at room temperature for a few minutes, if it’s too hard. As soon as it’s soft enough, spoon the mixture in 2 heaped tablespoon measurements onto the baking sheets about two inches apart. I use an ice cream scoop.
This recipe makes about 30 cookies.
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until they are brown around the edges. The cookies will be soft but will harden more as they cool.  
Leave to cool on the tray for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The recipe is in a book I am reading now. 

It's a page turner!
