Gooooooooood morning bloggies!
Just to get this out of the way: Yes, I was supposed to hear back about nursing school by the 9th. Given that Max and I are basing our where-are-we-living decision on my acceptance letter or lack thereof, I was That Girl and called on the 9th to politely inquire whether the acceptance letters had been sent.
"We are actually in the process of sending them now."
Um hello? You are accepting twenty students? Are you handwriting each letter and telling each candidate exactly why they were accepted?....
But I digress. Beyond my control and all that.
Also beyond my control:
Microwaving oat bran. This is the third time this has happened in two days.
Oh well. The whole weekend is not a total loss; after all, there's nothing that a good cookie can't cure.
Everything You Would Ever Want in a Cookie Cookies
These are not healthy in any way. They are dairy-free to prevent Round Two of Sable vs Lactose (lactose is up 1-0) and are actually vegan. And check out what all is in them:
Oh yeah. In case you can't tell, that is (clockwise from left): Smart Balance Buttery Spread (naturally vegan!), Aunt Jemima maple syrup, locally grown whole wheat flour, dates, old-fashioned oats, dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes and Splenda Brown Sugar blend. (Baking powder and baking soda are unpictured. Oops.)
And just what is the cookie-making occasion, you ask?
I want to help raise money for The Great Fundraising Act. So, natch, I'm testing cookie recipes. This is the front runner fo sho. I ate three before they'd even cooled off. Max, being Mr. Portion Control, only had one but said it was awesome. (And he is a TOUGH CRITIC you guys.)
So if you want a batch for yourself, bid on July 25th! Cancer is a cause that is close to my heart and I'd love to help do some good. And, hopefully, satisfy one of your sweet teeth. :)
Happy Monday!! <3
