Looking for no-bake moon cookie recipe

Long ago when I was a kid Cricket Magazine ran a recipe for "moon cookies" attributed to astronaut Michael Collins. These were no-bake spherical cookies that I seem to recall involved peanut butter, not the "phase of the moon" sugar cookies that my Googling is turning up. If anyone has a recipe that sounds like this, please help me find it in time for a "moon festival" party this Saturday!

Summary: found a cat, took it in on behalf of the owner - but it turned out to be a different cat. I would normally only take a cat in if I could look after it, and I'm not sure I can commit to the new cat - but how can I not? tl;dr inside. [more inside]

How to suit up without going broke?

I'm changing jobs and going from a very casual environment to jacket and tie land. At the moment the only suit I've got that fits is the one I interviewed in, so I'm going to need a week and a half's worth of clothing and I don't want to go broke buying it. I'm looking for recommendations for menswear places in Minneapolis / St. Paul and the southern suburbs, and any tips from folks well accustomed to suiting up on a regular basis.
