Yesterday I wanted cookies and I had been waiting for the perfect day to bake them. Gluten free of course, oh and dairy and egg free too!
On a day like this all gloomy and foggy and cold, a jiggsaw puzzle, hot coffee and cookies were called for.
I used Bobs Red Mill Chocolate Chip cookie mix.
We went to the store and bought a 10 pack of puzzles and started putting one together as we ate our cookies. The puzzles were a bit hard for the kids however the watched and played while Jaymon and I worked for hours. It was lovely.
No running for me. It was a rest day. My morning was quite stressful and making cookies was relaxing. Even more so than eating them although gnoshing was fun too!
A trip to Childserve for therapy, a trip to the store with lots of running around and then cookies is enough to tucker a little fella out.
Today is Tuesday and another rest day. Tomorrow will be a longer treadmill run of 10 miles or so since we are expecting to get ice and sleet tomorrow. I would love to be outside again but the Iowa winter thinks otherwise. I managed my calories well yesterday and didn't feel like I needed to burn off the extra cookie calories. And on a side note, the puzzle lasted about 24 hours before being destroyed by a monster child. It lasted longer than I would have wagered.
Now you have me craving oatmeal cookies with cranberries. Doh!
Dates are really yummy in oatmeal cookies! Dates and butterscotch chips is even better!
