What was I thinking?
When I go off the rails, I don't do it in dribs and drabs. I got home from work today, and was tired, cranky and didn't really feel like working out. Baking makes me feel better when I'm in a mood like this. So not only did I skip the gym, I baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The Girl Who Ate Everything. The recipe was small - it made 16 big cookies, which only used a half-bag of chocolate chips. I figured, if I was going to open a bag of chocolate chips, I might as well use the whole bag. So I make a double batch.
Oh. My. God.
I have no idea how many of these cookies I taste-tested. And I may need to sample another in a few minutes to make sure they really pass inspection. They are delicious. They go perfectly with a big glass of milk.
<sigh> Now I have more to work off the next time I go to the gym. But my mood has improved! I guess that's a reasonable trade.
