I needed some quick yummy things to bring over to a friends house last Saturday. Since the Thanksgiving cooking may lay had just finished I wanted something fun to make so I wasn't stuck in the kitchen again. Also, it was requested that I bring something both chocolaty and peanut buttery, and I have to admit those two combinations are not in my cooking arsenal. But I do have a very close friend who is also into this so I hit pinterest hard to find such an amazing concoction, and found this Reese's peanut butter cookie creation, and it was a HUGE hit even with me. I am not super into peanut butter, especially in desserts, but I will be making this one again for sure. And super easy is an absolute bonus! I did do one tiny thing different and that it put them in larger cupcake liners and a muffin tin so there would be more cookie around the peanut butter cup which I was very happy with. Remember to heat them up in the microwave for 20 seconds if you aren't serving them right out of the oven to make them extra gooey.
Growing up in Southern California for me meant many days out of the year were spent at Disneyland. Once me and my friends were old enough our parents would drop us off for the day and most of the night to get us out of their hair. We had so much fun running around the park. It became like a second home to us. But one thing about Southern California is that it is Hot, REALLY HOT a good portion of the year. And when I was little Disneyland had black asphalt streets in most of the areas. Around 3 pm the heat form the pavement would just radiate through your shoes, and make life unbearable. So if you were a regular you found the little out of the way places to cool off. One of our favorites was these little room sized telephone booths at the exit of Circle Vision in Tomorrow land. They were very large telephone booths that you could sit in, and could fit at least 3 people in comfortably. They were carpeted, with really comfy stools. They had glass doors that you could close for privacy, and the air conditioning was turned up so high in there it was like a meat locker. I think they were originally built so that you could have a video chat with someone, but since no one had a system that you could call where you could video chat back they just switched them to normal phone booths in a few years. It is so weird because I've been looking for a picture of them for a long, long time, and until now I haven't even found a mention of them. And I know there were around from the mid 70's to at least the late 1980's. Thank god for the Disney History Institute because you can just get a glimpse of them in this image. I believe they were behind that speed of dialing sign. I do remember they were on an outside wall so that when you were in there you were encased by smoked glass all around, and could people watch as people walked by. Or they might be the booths against the far wall, because I think at that time that building wasn't all connected like it is today. I really do wish I would have taken more pictures when I was younger. In any case here is a little part of my history.

Disneyland abandoned mine car from the old Mine trains through natures wonderland, or the painted desert
I've always had this weird attraction to this abandoned mine car area in Disneyland. It's on the backside of the park, behind Big Thunder Railroad. I remember it through the 80's as a completely forgotten area, then in the 90's they slowly beautified it, in the 2000's they stripping the area clean, then in the 2010 they brought back a little bit of the decorative elements to it. I knew it was part of another ride a long time ago. I think it was called Mine Trains through Natures Wonderland, or the Painted Desert. But I never could visualize just how the cave fit into the ride. Or what that segment of the ride looked like. I finally found a picture of that section of the ride (3 rd image down), and a map of the ride itself (4 th image down). YAY! for my goggle detective skillz!
