    Well, she might bake his cookies later…

    Peanut Butter Cookies

    Sift together
    1 cup sifted flour
    ½ teaspoon baking soda (not baking powder)
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    Set aside for the moment

    Put into large bowl:
    ½ cup soft shortening (lard or Crisco vegetable)
    ½ cup packed brown sugar (use the back of a serving spoon to pack level with the top of the measuring cup.
    ½ cup (level) white sugar
    1 egg, unbeaten
    ½ cup smooth peanut butter
    1 Tablespoon water or lemon juice
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (real only or the taste will be off)

    Beat the second list together at about 1/3 speed or use a pastry blender. Scrape down the side of the bowl as necessary using a spatula.
    Blend well

    Add the flour mixture and blend in (again scraping the bowl as necessary)

    Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets
    Press lightly with a floured fork to flatten and ridge the cookies
    Chill the raw cookies in the fridge for 15 minutes
    Bake at 325° to 350° for 12 to 15 minutes
    (Watch closely from the 10 minute mark as they’ll go from done to burnt in the blink of an eye)

    Well, he always knew she was the quick squeeze type… he never complained about her easy-open top.

    Why was he so jarred when she took it off altogether?

    This is sticky for him…. maybe it’s crunch time.

    She can run off with Peter Pan if she wants to…
    and if he’s got enough bread for her taste…

    But Jif will try to find a new, pure honey to pair up with…
    one who’s sweet and natural….
    and would rather hang out with him in the kitchen.

    Great minds…. you know…. or something.

    Most males are topless at the beach. No big deal.

    He knows her reward for such lewd and lascivious behavior will be sour grapes.
