Chocolate chip? Oatmeal? Peanut Butter? M&M's? Why choose!?! Combine them all for one delicious Monster Cookie.

You can add raisins if you want but I decided to leave those out. 

Last night I went with my husband to an event at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. We enjoyed a delicious buffet out on the sand overlooking the sunset.

I had a slice of delicious chocolate cake but it was too dark and the photo didn't come out. 

This morning I slept in a bit and enjoyed some Lucky Charms cereal while watching TV. It was heaven.

We all went to Tio Leo's for lunch. I had two soft beef tacos with beans and rice.

We went to my son's basketball game (they lost). :( We came home and I got the baking bug so I baked the Monster Cookies. 

Now both kids have play dates over. They are eating pizza while my husband went to go pick up barbecue for us. Excited! 

Any Mother's Day plans?
