I bake for a lot of reasons.
I bake for people I love. I bake to exercise my creative juices in the kitchen. I bake out of boredom. I bake to relax. But most often I bake because I want to eat dough.
Ain’t so shame in the game!
This afternoon, I baked up a batch of muesli cookies, not bothering to do any real research into other people’s attempts at muesli cookies.
I made a dough using the usual cookie dough ingredients of butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda. I didn’t have any flour, so I ground up oatmeal in the food processor to serve as flour, figuring that it would make a great substitute.
The dough was fantastic!
Well, they crumbled. They held together as I removed them from the cookie sheet, but the moment I went to pick one up to eat, it crumbled in my hand.
At least cookie crumbles are delicious!
The cookies also served a purpose. They acted as fuel for an afternoon walk with Sadie.
Today has been quite dreary in Orlando and I think the weather made us feel extra lazy. After Ryan got back from soccer and I returned from spending too much money on fennel, we changed into our comfy clothes and have been bummin’ it ever since.
After eating several cookies, we got our butts out of the house for two walks with Sadie and a trip to Chipotle for our third Mexican meal of the weekend.
We shared a burrito since they’re the size of a small child and I wasn’t that hungry because I’ve been so snacky all day. We also split an order of chips with guacamole.
Then we came home and Ryan turned on the Super Bowl for our own little Super Bowl party for three (can’t forget Sadie)!
Off to watch the half time show!
