So now that Utah beat BYU, I'm hoping it will deflate BYU and boost USU's confidence. We will meet the Cougars in Provo in just a few weeks and I want to see my team bring home a W. Because that would give us bragging rights for the year to be, in a way, "the best team in Utah". And I'm not sure when this last happened for us. It's been before I was born. I'm sure of that.
I am not so sure why I am rambling about my thoughts on football. . .but I am. And I love my school. There is just something magical about Utah State University and Logan's college town ways. I love nothing more than going to the grocery store and running into an old timer who is sporting his or her Aggie gear. It makes me smile. It makes me want to run up to him or her and do the "Scotsman".
If you don't know what doing the "Scotsman" means, let me assure you that it's nothing dirty. Watch this video. . .
Any ways, football is fun. We had friends over to watch the game. We cheered too loud so I apologized the next day to our neighbors for cheering late through the night. They said it was alright because they knew what was happening on the game, thanks to us, since they didn't get the channel. We also ate a LOT of food. Some of that food was snicker cookies. They are cookies with a snicker bar in the middle and I'm feeling kind enough to share the recipe.
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1tsp baking powder
Beat first four ingredients until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Shape into balls and wrap around bite-size Snickers candy bars. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes. Sit one minute.
For the chocolate glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp milk
There you have it. Football and cookies. Those two things make for quite the party. And if you don't make these cookies for a party. . .probably half the recipe. Unless you want Snicker cookies coming out of your ears, which was never a bad thing.
