Wow the afternoon totally flew by!!! When I got home from work (super early) I set to make the sugar cookies. I have realized that I am just not a baker (and speaking of baking I need to announce the cookie contest winner! should i wait until monday when everyone will catch up on blogs or just announce it in the AM?)… I tried creaming the sugar and butter while the butter was cold because the recipe I hadn’t didn’t state that it should be at room temp. Ugh, that was a fun little mess. But, I did make the cookies and they were tasty, just not as good as I have had before.
For lunch I had leftover soup + a small 160 calorie classic pita with 1 oz broiled mozzarella on top. Then all afternoon I have been snacking on cookies. I have probably had about 6? I wanted to taste one from every batch to see if I could improve with the baking time and such. Not so much… Also, they are the size of a sand dollar which is just the PERFECT cookie size and they all should be that size!! With lots of tea in a penguin mug.
And now it is midnight and I JUST finished wrapping presents which is insane since my family isn’t even doing Christmas gifts this year. I only had to wrap PB and my presents to his family (soon to be mine too) and some small things for my dad. I watched Elf and Forgetting Sarah Marshall and cried at the end of both. What is wrong with me?!?!
Anyway, it was interesting to be snowed in alone. I wish PB was with me! I missed him today and tonight.
Now I am off to dreamland… Happy snow day!
