i was craving cookies today. badly.
so i decided to look up low carb peanut butter cookie recipes… and i made them!!
they are ok – a little crumbly but they taste good 🙂
i go through these stages…i call them domestic goddess stages
i think i channel Martha Stewart.
i go through stages where i just want to bake and cook and obsess about cleaning the kitchen
i think these stages are hormonally fueled.
it’s almost like a nesting thing – not sure.
i just want to feed people…and i also want to be experimental.
even with my low carb lifestyle i will bake things i cannot put past my lips
i have baked my famous blueberry pie – only to give it away – other pies as well – peach, pumpkin. i have baked brownies and cookies and have brought them in to work to feed my coworkers.
it makes me really happy to see people love what i make!
when i go through these stages i could be in my kitchen for hours and be completely content.
last night was one of those nights. i went to the grocery store right after work and spent an obscene amount of money.
raced home to walk the dog – and then tidied up the kitchen (because i just cannot cook if the kitchen is not perfectly clean)
i baked a low carb cheesecake 🙂
i love my cheese cake.
then i decided i wanted to make a taco salad. i’ve never made one before – and it seemed so simple so i thought why not.
oh my dear lord it was delicious.
when i finally finished eating and cleaning up – i was antsy. sure i was tired…but i wanted to do more. what else could i make??
i talked myself out of it and decided to enjoy my Thursday night…and i did.
i still have the itch. what oh what can i make tonight?
here is a picture of my salad – i took it with my phone so it’s not that great…
a delicious taco salad – minus the taco!
i wrote a blog next door in more detail about my day yesterday….regarding distraction.
today i shall blog about yesterday’s distractions ramifications.
i don’t think i am exaggerating when i say i baked at least 15 dozen cookies yesterday.
from about 7:30pm until 12:30am i was baking.
there are shortbread cookies, ginger bread cookies and chocolate chip cookies all over my kitchen.
hey – when i have a lot on my mind i like to keep busy….what can i say?
i am a little crazy when i have a lot in my heart and in my head.
everywhere i turn in my kitchen i see cookies…both of my fridges are full of cookies
so is my microwave…so is the top of my big fridge…
i do not have a decorating bone in my body…but i gotta say…my gingerbread doods look good.
anyways…i have always been a sentimental person…
preferring a gift from the heart as opposed to something store bought (although please feel free to buy me the ipod touch on my xmas list)
i squealed like a little school girl when my coworker gave me a box of home baked goodies for Christmas
she knew full well they were a no no on my diet…but the fact that she took hours to make these…and with such care and love…well it was one of the best gifts i could get
knowing the time, and care that she put in to my gift…the care even in the wrapping…
bah, i just loved it!
so i thought to myself…self, why have you never done that??
and so last night i did.
the people i love the most will be getting tins of my carbolicious goodness…
and i gotta tell you. I CAN’T WAIT.
i cannot wait to get these damn cookies out of my home. remember the blog i wrote about sleep eating???
imagine my hell at the moment.
i did everything right today – pretty much
i ate a healthy breakfast, i worked out, had a salad for dinner
but in between all those things, a couple of cookies made their way to my mouth.
once i deliver these gifts…and begin my real vacation
i shall be free and clear of the evil devil called sugar…
or so i hope.
tonight’s distraction? drinking wine and wrapping presents.
anyone want a cookie..or 12?
