Happy rainy Thursday everyone! It might not be raining where you are, but let’s just pretend, right Mama Pea? Today I had 2 pictures I couldn’t decide between for the two things I ate, so I loaded it up for y’all double time!
So this morning I made chocolate chip cookie bars for my office. I always make some sort of treat once a week for the people I work with because I think it’s fun to give stuff like that, bake, and the great news is that I don’t have to eat it all!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2-3 tsp vanilla (I love me some vanilla!!!)
- 1 bag chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375. Line a 12 x 17 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl beat together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix until well combined. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread on the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the center does not jiggle when the pan shakes. And now, my friend, you have made chocolate chip cookie bars!
Lunch was a big salad, fiesta style!
Tonight is going to be filled with projects! I’m working on a little series that’s close to my heart, and if I don’t set some time aside to DO it, there’s no way it’s going to get done! I’m hoping to have a post every Monday on this topic, and I’m hoping to start next week! No promises, but I’m going to do what I can. Other than that there is going to be some working out and sleeping involved (must.get.some.rest)!
