Too Much Food

Been writing music again.
Not sure what to do with them though.
But it helps me when I go through things
Or when I’m bored.

Been training for my 5k and had an ice bath for the feet.
As long as I finish, I don’t mind the time.
But hopefully I’ll finish before 45 minutes.

Ribs, Sausage, & Chicken Drumstick lookalikes.
Cute.

Went to the eye doctor who gave me all this stuff … for free.
And because she knew I was a recent college grad,
I didn’t have to pay for some images I had to take for the eyes.
Thanks doc.

Always the best for last.
The view on the drive home.
Love getting to work by 5am
So I can go home early.
No cars.

Cannot wait for Thursday!
It’s gonna be a good weekend!

Spoiled Coworkers

I entered in Hollie’s coffee a day contest. I don’t mind if I don’t win.
I was just wondering what category Starbucks Wanna Be would be under.
Hence the face and the confused teddy bear. I got this coffee for free at work. Buy 9 get 1 free.
They only serve a few off the menu. No seasonal or anything. Better than nothing?

I baked some Peanut Butter Cookies for the coworkers tonight.
They are super spoiled … obviously.
They smell super delicious and I kinda don’t wanna share.

Tomorrow is my Friday! AND I get to cross something off my bucket list.
You’ll hear about that tomorrow. Can’t wait to share!
Happy Thursday y’all!
Stay Positive and Thank Good Thoughts!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

On the 26th of March there was a get together so I made a Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie.

This is the before picture. Pretty nifty eh?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 unbaked pie crust, homemade or store bought
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter softened (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Beat eggs in a large mixer until foamy. Add in flour and sugars. Beat until well blended.
  2. Beat in softened butter. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. (I didn’t put in nuts since I had friends that were allergic.) Stir.
  3. Pour into pie crust (thawed). Bake at 325°F for about 50-55 minutes. Let cool before eating.

Mine came out a little undone in the middle but others didn’t mind. They said that it’s a pie and pies are usually that way. Next time it’ll be more like a cookie and less like a pie texture.
