A Break? What’s That?

December 15, 2010

I was really tempted to name this post “Your balls are flat” but we’ll get to that later.

Why is it that the days you have “off” always seem to be the busiest?

I woke up and dished up some breakfast because heading to my massage.  I know, I live a hard life.

For someone who “doesn’t really like chocolate,” I sure seem to be hooked on chocolate oats.

Topped with jelly and maple pumpkin butter, which is new to me.  I’ll let you know the brand tomorrow but believe me, it’s awesome.

Is this blurry or artistic?

I’m so glad I scheduled a massage with my mom.  Not only did she do some great work on my IT band but it was the only point in my day where I felt relaxed.

Thanks, Mom 🙂

From my parents’ office I ran serveral errands and shoved some almonds and roasted veggies in my mouth at some point.

Then I got to work on these.

I had to be at school to watch final presentations and signed up to bring cookies because apparently I’m still in high school and we have in-class parties.  I don’t know why I’m complaining.

I decided to make these and these from Mama Pea.  I’ve been eyeing them for weeks!

I went through A LOT of peanut butter.  But I’m okay with that because that only means one thing… OIAJ in my near future.

Dough was made.  Two batches of peanut butter/chocolate chip dough balls.

And one batch of cinnamon sugar dough balls.

Then something went horribly wrong and my cinnamon dough balls came out flat!

Really flat.

I thanked myself for eating some of the dough before it deflated and realized tiny cinnamon sugar cookies are just as good as dough balls.

And the flat balls were overshadowed by the awesome peanut butter dough balls that didn’t deflate.

Whoa, look at the inside of those babies.

To be honest, the dough balls tasted a lot differnt than I’d thought.  They were a little dry and a LOT peanut buttery.  It made it easy to only eat one…and a half.  Everyone in class grabbed one so hopefully they were well received.

Are your “days off” busy too?

    I agree with you on the dough balls. They were so rich when I made them. I think it’s the abundance of sugar. I mean, there is powdered sugar, brown sugar…I just don’t think I am a big fan of the powdered sugar. But! The cookies are good. I am going to try to make a different variation of them that I found online. And, some raw dough balls would be nice too. 🙂

    My off days are so busy it’s kind of sad. 😦

    However, I find when I have a chance to sit down and relax, I enjoy it a LOT more!

    As long as the dough balls still tastes good, that’s ok! 😉

    You’ll have such a great time at TSO! They put on such a great show! The electric violinist was my favorite. 🙂

    And YAY for OIAJ 🙂
