Do more of what makes you happy. Simple and to the point. I like that. (Source.) I think I will take that as go bake some cookies. Any requests?
I’m absolutely in awe that Monday is Memorial Day. Wasn’t it just New Year’s Day 20 minutes ago?
I guess it is upon us regardless of whether or not our brains have caught up to the seemingly lightning fast speed of time these days. So, to celebrate, let’s talk about food. (Because what else would we talk about?!)
I am fairly certain that I will be making Caroline’s Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake because I can’t quit thinking about how gooey the center looks. Yes, I constantly dream about cookies.
Paul and I will be spending the weekend at home, hopefully relaxing, catching up on housework, cooking and baking and photographing food, etc. Well, at least that’s what I’ll be doing. I have my eye on this pizza from Confections of a Foodie Bride. I’m such a fan of veggie pizza and the goat cheese and broccoli are absolutely calling my name here.
We had black bean quinoa burgers for dinner on Monday night. Last night Paul used the leftovers to make a black bean burger quesadilla. He suggested that I do a “leftover week” similar to “sandwich week” that would showcase what we do with leftovers. Weird? Or cool?
And lastly, I am making some Crack Pie for a potluck that I have next Wednesday. I am going to need some major self-control to be able to make these and not dig into them until then. Send prayers!
