Tina's having a giveaway!! ...I'm personally excited about this one because it's a product I haven't been lucky enough to try cooking with yet but have wanted to for a while. TOFU!
Amazing. I'm a giant gingerbread fan and the second I spotted these I knew they would make me the happiest... the cookie had a crunch around the edges but was soft & chewy in the center with meringue chocolate eyes. YUM.
Full of oatmeal (my favorite in a cookie), peanut butter, and both chocolate & white chocolate chips... hence the name, COWS.. black & white spots? You got it...
- 1-1/2 c. oats
- 1/2 c. wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1/2 (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temp.
- 1/2 c. Peanut Butter
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 3/4 c. mix of chocolate chips & white chocolate chips
My co-workers loved them... they were devoured hours before my shift ended :)
Friday night's dinner was heaven sent...
I marinated a tilapia filet with lemon, pepper, & some seasonings for about 15 minutes...
Then baked it & served with roasted veggies & red potatoes.
Followed by a sweet treat (as if I haven't had enough on Cookie Friday) I had a scoop of After Dark Chocolate Stonyfield FF froyo with a sprinkle of Bear Naked granola. Perfect!
Saturday began the best way: with a yogurt mess, photographed in the morning light :)
Followed by me frantically getting ready for work & packing a few essentials to prevent fainting later in the day...
Once I was finally cut, I realized it was Saturday.
- Free-range chicken
- Organic carmelized onions
- Oven-roasted red bell peppers
- Organic corn
- & a homemade BBQ sauce drizzled on top.
Oh yeah... you know how we do.
The night then ended with a night at Cambridge Brewhouse a couple towns over that I had yet to check out but my lovely friend Angelica had been working at for months now. So a few of the coworkers and I met for a few home-brewed brewnanas & some live music... plus a fight outside the building, which was MUCHO fun to watch. Oh yay. Boys need to learn to control their anger, for serious.
I chose the Kona Longboard Lager... the Hawaiian brewing company aced this.. it had great flavor and was light enough for girls like me to enjoy who don't go any darker than... oh yeah, Magic Hat. Two of those and I had MORE than exceeded my alcohol intake for the day... It's very rare I have more than one or two glasses of wine anytime I drink so this was a nice little change for once... I had fun, enjoyed the company and the drinks, & still got home at a decent hour without dreading a morning hangover.
I woke up to this on Sunday morning outside my front door....
Beautiful Fall days call for Beautiful Warm breakfast :)
Oats in a Jar!
All I can say is... I love hotdogs once again! :)
I made a yummy salad to go alongside it...
