Getting all domesticated
I like to bake cookies but I never made 6 different kinds before. And the numbness in my fingers from pregnancy was more evident after I was done baking. It was fun, tho! From top left to right, Peanut M&M cookies, double chocolate chunk with walnut, chocolate chips with walnut, carrot cake cookies, oatmeal with butterscotch and white chocolate chips (Yves' favorite) and pistachio and dark chocolate M&Ms (my favorite). I had a bunch of left over yogurt containers and was given the idea of filling them up with goodies and to give them away. Originally I was going to make chocolate covered pretzels (which I still plan on doing) but somehow talked myself into doing something more time consuming by baking cookies. I decorated them and gave them to Yves to give to his co-workers.
I thought they came out really cute! They don't hold as many cookies as I thought they would but I also gave some to our first floor neighbors (but not the 2nd floor since I hate them)and brought the cookies out to karaoke last Tuesday and also gave them to my brunch guests that I had on Saturday and Sunday. Which I also cooked for! See how domesticated I got? I picked out 2 recipes from Everyday Food, a ham and potato bake and buttermilk biscuits. I also made Spinach-Artichoke dip but I got that from Rachel Ray Cooking magazine. They were all big hits on Saturday that I just made the same thing on Sunday! They were all so easy to make. Now to pull out the magazines to figure out what to cook for Christmas!
