Fall-To Layout #110

I found this Rolo cookie recipe online a few days ago from TwoPeasandTheirPod and thought they sounded super yummy. Hello, chocolate and caramel? Is there a better combo out there? I decided to bake them today. The dough was a little more sticky than the peanut butter cookie dough I'm used to, but with the help of a ice cream scooper, I was able to reduce the mess on my hands. I forgot to roll the cookies in sugar ended up not rolling the cookie dough in sugar because I thought the cookies had enough sweetness. I do recommend a cold glass of milk to wash down each cookie. Check out the goo-y center on the right. Nom nom nom.
I also made pizza casserole (yes, again) to use up some vegetables before they went bad. Dontcha just love the puddle of melted cheese? On another kitchen related note, the dishwasher door won't close. We will be washing dishes by hand until further notice. I guess this is supposed to be one of those opportunities to appreciate the technological advances we enjoy daily. I feel like I'm back in college. :PI wasn't feeling crafty Friday or yesterday, so I didn't tackle the Fall-To Layout (#110) until today. I wanted to keep a fall theme in mind consider we just hit October (yikes). I've already added an extra blanket to my bed. Ginger the cat took a nap with me this afternoon, which is a sure sign of colder weather, because usually she doesn't want to snuggle with me.
