His stomach is like an elephant

My boy.
The other night, he was in my bed with me. David was out of town, so he was just hanging out with me in my room.

And out of the clear blue, he said,
Momma, you know Mimi and Poppy's house?
Me - Yes.
S- Not their normal house, their other house.
Me- Yes (he was referring to their Adel farm house)
S- Do you remember that time that we were there with me and you and Mimi and Poppy and Jessa and May?
Me - Uh-huh (the last time was this summer - July)
S- Do you remember those cookies that Mimi made?
Me- Um, which cookies?
S- You know the peanut butter ones?
Me - Well, yes, I guess I do, why?
S- I want some. Do you know how to make them?
Me- Um, no, but I can ask Mimi.
S- OK! Good!

So, at his request, I called Mimi and she gave me the recipe. She did not even have to look it up.
Here is the recipe:

Mimi's Peanut Butter cookies
1 cup Peanut Butter (crunchy or creamy - we used half and half)
1 cup Sugar
1 egg
1 tsp Vanilla

That's it! So we whipped some of those babies up.
(We baked at 350 for about 8-10 minutes)

They were good!

And just like he remembered!

And by the way, I cannot believe that he remembered that!
I guess it is true that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach -
even when they are 4!
