What a crazy day!
There was much baking and eating.
And some drinking.
We bought Oreos and made crazy peanut butter cookies and cream brownies from the amazing How Sweet blog for dessert. I think the piece I ate negated the 3+ mile walk I took earlier; you know how I hate to be in the negative calorie range, makes me nervous.
And I made the yearly batch of Chocolate Crinkles for Uncle Dave’s birthday. They are his favorite cookie of all time. This time we made them extra special with mini chocolate chips. Face it, everything is better with mini chocolate chips.
