Week In Review

YOGA.  Monday and Tuesday saw a double dose of my ass on the mat because my anxiety is at an all time high and I desperately needed to shove that cuckoo in the clock.  Back to just once a day on Wednesday and Thursday.  That's six times in four days.  Y' proud of me!  I turned to my mat instead of ice cream.  I'm a work in progress.

GARDEN.  Part of me is sad to see summer favorites like patty pan and tomatoes and rhubarb come to an end for the year.  But part of me also loves that things like Swiss Chard are once again thriving in all their rainbow glory now that the nights are cooler.  And winter squash...oh how I just love all things pumpkin and squash!

SALADS.  I have a few more tomatoes still ripening which means I have a few more bowls of summer sunshine in my future.  Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown basil, and homemade mozzarella are my absolute favorite lunch or dinner this time of year!

COOKIES.  I've talked about this before but let me again share my best dirty little secret.  I make a batch of cookie dough, ball up the entire batch and place it on a single Silpat lined cookie sheet, place the whole thing in the freezer and wait a few hours.  Once the balls of dough are frozen, transfer to a large zip top baggie.  Now you have options.  You can bake up the whole batch, bake up a dozen, eat the frozen dough balls {we cannot be friends if you are above that}, or my personal favorite and the reason I am telling you this, bake up two after a tough day.  There is just nothing better than two perfect, warm chocolate chip cookies on a cold night {or...let's get real...any night}.  

So what big or perfectly mundane things happened in your world this week?  Give me the skinny!

I will eat raw cookie dough with you, anytime, anywhere.
