Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

 I don't bake a lot..mostly because there is no one here to eat the baked goods but the two of us...which usually translates to the one of me.  My coworkers are often the beneficiaries of my labor.

Not too long ago I made these cookies.....Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies.  They were worth the trouble and the few extra calories.

Iced Tea

I'm a Southern girl....born in North Carolina and have lived in Virginia most of my life.  We drink iced tea here.  Once you get below the Virginia/NC state line it is sweet tea.  But I don't really like sweet tea....I only like it with in NC pork barbecue.  But I do love iced tea and this 87 degree weather in Richmond is making me think about and drink a lot of it.  Recently I found  my favorite iced tea at Mosaic, a restaurant near the University of Richmond campus.  They brew it with regular tea bags and orange spice tea bags.  It is delicious.  I tried it at home.  And perfection is two big Luzianne tea bags and two small orange spice tea bags...for 1/2 gallon of tea.  I highly recommend it.

And two other thoughts/observations.  Mosaic has an awesome Cobb Salad.  They call it the Fit Cobb.  But it has a lot of bacon...which makes it delicious.  The second thought/observation....two weeks ago it was snowing it is almost 90 degrees.  I refuse to turn on the AC in April and I won't open all the windows because I don't want a house full of pollen...therefore, I am suffering...all of my own doing.
