Girlfriends Escape to Lake Norman

This past Saturday I went to Lake Norman with some girlfriends.  We packed up the cars with food, booze, trashy magazines, and dogs, and headed up to Kristi's family lakehouse. 

After unpacking, we took the boat out and headed to an island where we beached the boat and just enjoyed each other's company for a few hours.

Our captain for the day

Having a heart-to-heart with Kenz

Nothin' like a girls trip.  And that night we feasted on tomato pie, orzo salad with veggies and chicken, and the most delicious cookies that Kristi brought.  I don't have a picture of them, but they were so tasty.  Kristi said her mother calls them "Cow Plops" but she had some other name for them which I can't remember.  So for now, we will just refer to them as .....

Chocolatey-Peanut Butterey-Oatmeal No Bake Cookies
that are delicoussss

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup peanut butter
