Cookie making was a success!
Too much of a success because I have in my kitchen right now about 4 dozen cookies….I have peanut butter chocolate chip, chocolate chip drizzled with dark chocolate and a variety of these fancy butter tea cookies…some of which are sandwiched with raspberry jam and some drizzled with chocolate!!I plan to bring some to the maintenance man of my apartment complex because I promised I would and bring half home with me tomorrow to the family and boyfriend, who LOVES chocolate chip peanut butter! I’m also going to freeze some right now to keep on hand for emergency sugar situations (I need a big walk-in freezer for all the pastry going into this thing!!)
I am very proud of myself because I didn’t eat any cookies after they came out of the oven at school today. I of course tasted some dough, but nothing really major. No spoon licking is allowed there! When I got home I made a light lunch of an egg sandwich (2 eggs + 1 slice of provolone on whole wheat bagel bread) and apple slices. It was light yet filling at the same time. And then…I had a small bite of a little butter cookie dipped in chocolate for dessert. Sorry no photo, it was a spur of the moment decision! 😉 I think I’m going to try to work out in a little bit…I’m feeling up to a nice easy treadmill run–nothing extreme since I’m still on heavy duty antibiotics but I feel the need to exercise after baking all those cookies! This morning as a snack I ate the half cup of grapes I had brought with me to school!
Today’s lunch was about 457 calories…give and take 15 more for that tiny tiny bit of cookie I had!
