Week 12 Wednesday (3/26/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate                                                       Chip Cookie
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog


I figured out that there are 198 calories per serving, if 36 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I love that these cookies are both crunchy and chewy. These were so good.  I love that both types of chips are used and because of this, the cookies are rich!

Chocolate yumminess

I love the way the white chips peak out of the cookie

Today’s Critics:
I brought these cookies to my elementary school and my night college course.
         Roger Mercado said, “This was delicious.”
         John Michalisko stated, “This is the best cookie so far!”
         Jenny Anderson shared, “I’m am having another cookie.  It was heavenly and it ROCKS!”
         Jodie McKnight said, “I love the white chocolate chips.  This is yummy. Mmmmmmmm!”
         Sarah Gress told me that she liked that they were moist.
         The college students loved the cookies and said they were really good.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude
         I am grateful for my ability to plan ahead and be prepared. I know it can be annoying to the people I work with, but I rarely ever procrastinate (Yes, Steve, Jenny, and Sara – I know I can be a pain).  In college, I was one of those students who received the syllabus on the first day and began working on the long-term projects immediately.
         Some people are really great under pressure but that is definitely NOT this girl. The closer a deadline gets, the more my blood pressure rises. So, I have learned to plan ahead and finish projects early and then sit back and relax.  Although, I cannot say that I relax well, either. There is always something to do and thank Heavens I like to stay busy.  I know I get that from my Mom. Oh well – we all get the job done in our own time. Whose to say there is a right or wrong way to operate?

Memory Musings
         One of my favorite Florida memories is relaxing in the Stopka Pool.  We just floated around the pool on rafts and talked.  Laura, Mary, and Suzanne and I just enjoyed spending time together. Kathy was usually working when we hung out in the pool.  What I wouldn’t give now for a sunny afternoon, laying on a raft, and enjoying great friendships in Florida.
