There is a debate that goes on in our household
each and every summer.
Nothing super serious…
but one that neither of us will budge on how
we say it.
If it comes up when other people are around
we ask their opinion too.
Funny thing is, usually we get mixed answers…
So I am going to share it with you today,
in hopes that some of you are with me on this.
It is summer time and during the summer we run our air a lot.
When the house gets too cool,
(yes, sometimes that does happen)
I turn the air UP.
My logic for turning it up,
is that the numbers on the thermostat are rising
so it is going up and getting warmer.
My hubby disagrees totally with me.
He says when you want to stop the air conditioning from working
you turn it DOWN.
In my brain, if I am turning it down,
it will get even colder.
So now I am curious how you say it when you either
turn your air colder or warmer.
so that you can figure out which way you say it,
I have just the cookie recipe for you.
How about some Outrageous Oatmeal Banana Cookies
that have butterscotch chips AND
a giant peanut butter cup???
Who cares about what way is right when you have cookies this good to eat.
- 1 c. butter
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 over ripe bananas
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 c. quick oats
- 2 c. flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 c. butterscotch chips
- 36 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- Preheat oven to 375* In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and bananas. Stir in baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Gradually stir in all the flour and then the oatmeal. Stir in the butterscotch chips by hand.
- Drop by large teaspoonful onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, top with a Reese's cup. Push it down gently into the cookie. Let it set for about 2 minutes on the pan, then remove to your wax paper lined counter. Let set until completely cooled. If you absolutely can’t wait to eat one…put them in the refrigerator to set up quicker.
