Good Day for Baking

It is a grey, rainy day (again), and I'm determined I will not turn the heat on yet. It's warmed up quite a bit outside, but has stayed cool enough inside that I'm wearing a sweatshirt over my T. To help warm up the house, I thought I'd bake some cookies. I got the recipe here, and whipped up a couple dozen.
The remainder of the dough was rolled into a log shape, wrapped, and frozen for future use.
Me alone in the house with several dozen fresh-baked cookies is never pretty. :)

This plate is going to the theater this evening (for you, Heather, dear!).

Not everything is better with chocolate!

I'm sure those who know me well are surprised by my subject line, but, sadly, it is true.

Jessi spent the weekend in North Dakota with friends, and they went to a chocolate shop where she purchased some treats for us. Okay, so I use the term "treats" lightly.

The malted milk balls are delicious, and I do like the chocolate-covered potato chips.

My problem started with the chocolate-covered olives and ended with the chocolate-covered jalapeno.


I love the girl, but this is one time I'll take a pass on finishing the chocolate. :o)

(These, um, "treats", come from Widman's Candy Shop, Grand Forks, ND. Thanks, Widman's. I think I'm permanently scarred...)
