The problem (today's, at least) is that whenever it seems that I'm going to have an hour or two of free time, my immediate reaction is to start searching for a recipe that I can make - and let's be honest, it usually comes down to a baked good or goods. I'm not picky either - all it takes is a quick review of the ingredients I've have and voila, a (usually high-fat) recipe materializes. I know that it hasn't always been this way, but without a doubt, I've been inflicted for at least 3+ years. I can only imagine how many pounds I could have saved if I didn't have this bad habit.

Tonight was the first time in a very long while that I was home for the entire evening and just had a few chores to catch up on. And wouldn't you know... laundry and baking cookies are like peas in a pod - put your laundry in during the cook time of one batch of your cookies - clockwork.

This time it was Old-Fashioned Peanut-Butter Cookies. And, as usual, I will pawn them off on some unsuspecting by-standers (Chris' family, this weekend) - that is, if there's any left by then...

Tomorrow night, Chris finishes (yes, forever!) his MBA from University of Maryland so I have a hunch these might be part of the celebration!!


  1. Well you know how I like peanut butter cookies ... and this food-blogging thing is definitely putting a kink in my WW efforts! So is life.

    Congrats to Chris. My husband started working on his master's in history this week at ASU. You're finishing; we're starting. Again, so is life!

  2. congratulations to chris and yum, yum to the cookies! to answer your question about HP - we celebrate him almost daily! :) I have two students and one husband reading the series for the first time right now and it's so exciting...what did you think of the 7th?


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!

I do my best to post responses back on your own blog but if your question is applicable to everyone, I'll leave you a response here.
