Easy Cake Mix Cookies

Inspired by these recipesEasy Cake Mix Cookies (4 recipes)and a lonely cake mix in my cupboard, Amanda and I made our own cake mix cookies!
Pre-heat oven to 350*F
In a small bowl beat 2 eggs
In large bowl mix together:
1 cake mix
1 box instant pudding
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup (chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch etc.) chips
Beaten eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
Mix well untill everything sticks together and your bowl looks "clean"

You could drop by teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 8-12 minutesbut what I did:
Spread mixture evenly into 2 (8 inch?) heart shaped pans.
Put into oven.
Bake for 16 minutes, checking and turning every 4 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes before trying to remove from pans.

V-ery easy crochet scarf

V-ery easy crochet scarf I love this pattern! I make mine so that they are 2 V's wide:
Chain 9, turn, (dc, ch 1, dc) (1 V made) in 5th chain, skip 1 chain, V in next, skip next chain, dc in last chain, chain 3, turn,
V in each V, dc in last stitch, chain 3
Repeat untill your scarf is as long as you wish.
This is so fun and makes for a good "brainless" crochet project cuz there is no stitch counting and if you use some fuzzy, fancy yarns (such as Wal-Marts NoBo brand or Dollar Store yarn like Pebbles) and a BIG hook it goes fast!
