I realized I haven’t posted since last…Friday? I thought I’d pop in to say “hi.” So, then. Hello.
On Saturday, I baked these Billionaire Cookies. No, seriously. I used the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from the Best Bake Sale Cookbook (it really is phenomenally good) and substituted Warren Buffet-stamped M&Ms from the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting.
Fancy. I brought half of them to my parents’ house and kept half of them here.
After a relaxing weekend of baking and dinner and visiting with friends, I thought I was 100% ready to tackle this week and cruise through it. Instead, I sort of feel like I got tossed into a tornado. Anyone else?
My dinner for the past two nights has centered around french fries with truffle aioli and red wine, so it’s pretty clear that I have not been cooking. At all. I look forward to breaking that streak tonight.
Winter finally took its revenge on us yesterday. After watching everyone on the East Coast (and in Chicago!) just get pummeled with snow, we got nailed with a full day of freezing rain and snow. I (hand to God) had to scrape my car three times throughout the course of the day and I am pretty sure that I sacrificed my nude pair of Flax Pumps as a snowy offering. I know that the more sensible decision would have been to change in and out of boots, but clearly that did not happen. Not to be that person, but those shoes were on their last leg (or heel!) anyway.
Happy Wednesday everyone and happy Mercury retrograde is ending. I’ll be back to share more when I can.
