The hubs’ job has been on the rocks for a while. There just isn’t enough work for his bosses to justify keeping him on. We have known this for several months. But for some reason his employers have been merciful and continued to pay us, despite not having sufficient work to keep him busy. Kind of an awkward position to be in.
Knowing we want to progress in his career, we decided it is time to let the job go. Or in better words, ask to be let go.
Feeling grateful for the hubs employers I whipped up a batch of these yummy cookies to thank them for their generosity.
I am not sure there are many people who thank their bosses when getting laid off, or for that matter, many people who actually ask to be laid off, but it was the right thing for us to do.
Now we just need to figure out what is next. I suppose, enjoy some delicious soft cookies (and perhaps get a new job ).
A wonderful treat to hit the spot. The Reeses peanut butter cups give just the right touch of peanut butter to the cookies. I used a large Pampered Chef scoop and baked mine for 10 minutes. For smaller cookies I would decrease the time.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chunk Cookies
• 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
• ¾ cup granulated sugar
• ¾ cup packed brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 large eggs
• 1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 2 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups chopped into chunks
• 1 Hershey Bar chopped into chunks
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Gently stir in chocolate chips, Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey chunks. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
So the job hunt continues. We have actively been looking for a year and have interviewed many times. Not the most fun place to be, but I know that the Lord has us in mind and has blessed us countless times. Somewhere there is a job for our family. I would love to stay in Boise near family and our houses, but we are open to moving and have been in contact with a handful of CPA firms out of town.
