With all the boxes that will be coming and going through the mail, I imagine you'll be receiving quite a few that are stuffed with packing paper.
Today, when I couldn't find newspaper to place under my wax paper, I remembered I had a whole pile of packing paper I was saving for repackaging boxes. I don't normally place paper under my wax paper, but today I wasn't in the mood to scrub the wax residue off the counter when I was done. This was my tired mom's remedy.
If I reuse the paper yet again and pack her box with it, I wonder if it will smell yummy?
Nova thinks they are going to her...
No-Bake Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies
1 c. margarine or butter
1 c. milk
4 T. cocoa
4 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
6 c. oatmeal (quick oats)
Mix margarine, milk, cocoa, and sugar together in a large pot and bring to a full boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add peanut butter. When well mixed add oatmeal, stir until well mixed. Drop on waxed paper to harden.
The packing paper did the trick and I get to rest a little longer before dinner goes into the oven. Lemon Chicken...mmmm.
