Let’s just get to it. I baked on Friday afternoon. And I burnt nuts. Good times.
But first, the success. “Purple Velvet” Chocolate Chip Cookies. I tried to be festive and make the cookies purple for my Pirates – but the cocoa took over and they were brown. They were deeelicious however, so it wasn’t a fail. I just failed when it came to color.
I wasn’t going to let cocoa ruin all my fun – so I topped added some GOLD frosting.
About those burnt nuts…Luckily I made two batches and only one got ruined. I’m still not sure how it happened since they were both in the oven at the same time…
I was going to take a batch the tailgate but I got selfish and kept the unburnt nuts at home. Big Guy will agree this can be seen as a good move or a bad move. These are seriously addicting. Cashews are my all-time favorite, but I wasn’t a hater on Friday so I used unsalted mixed nuts.
I don’t even know what makes it Moroccan but it was good.
Then there was a day full of tailgating and Pirate football.
And then on Sunday all I wanted was salad. I needed some greens in my life.
But we needed to spend some time with BQ, so Big Guy grilled up some honey cinnamon chicken.
This marinade was good – but it’s not one of our favorites. We’re tough critics these days.
Then I went to bed at 8pm. Now it’s time to tackle the week…
