Thoughts for Thursday and cookies for you!

Hi everyone. Whew it has been a busy week!!
We are off for a lo-ong weekend first to go see the newest man in my life (Ezra)

And then all of us are off to camp....Okay so it's not really camp,  Its a beautiful home in the woods with deer roaming through the yard and lots of good food, fun and about 22 of us laughing and having a great time. We started this tradition with good friends (2 other families, 4 of the 6 adults all went to High School together) when our children we young and and have continued through to include the kid's spouses and their children. Often times there are a few boyfriends or girlfriends here also, so we can easily be 30 of us.  The guys generally golf while the ladies and girls shop and then we all help prepare all of the meals and sit around planning our next Grown up only "big trip"( maybe Italy this next year). The weekend would not be complete with our these favorite cookies. ( I think I would be lynched if I showed up with out them) We only make them on this weekend  because they make a ton and they can be a bit spendy too. And they take about 4 hours if you bake the whole batch at one time  : )

12 eggs
2 lb. brown sugar
4 c. white sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. white corn syrup
8 tsp. soda
1 lb. butter
3 lb. peanut butter(6 cups)
18 c. oatmeal
1 lb. chocolate chips
1 lb. M&M'S®
Mix eggs, sugars, vanilla, corn syrup, butter, soda together until smooth. Add peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips and M&M'S®. Place 6 cookies per cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
I have found the best way to do this is to divided it all in half and do it  2 bowls( much easier for mixing)
