>So I’m back at college… studying It’s unfortunate that I have a French test tomorrow, and a French oral exam Tuesday. So if I happen to slip into French.. just ignore it. (Like the time I was in Florida for break and someone yelled, “Go Blue!” at my boyfriend for wearing a Michigan shirt… how did I respond? “Oui!!” Yes, it happened. I moved on, but it’s still weird to me that French slips into my daily conversation sometimes.)
Last night I went to dinner with some friends at Applebees, which was nice. What wasn’t so nice was their lack of vegetarian options on the menu. I opted for a house salad (which was too plain) and tomato soup (which was delicious). After dinner, my boyfriend and I went to Wal-Mart (because nowhere else is open at midnight for grocery shopping) and picked up some items for our late night baking adventure.
Now let me explain our history with baking. We have tried to make “healthy” cookies that ended up being little rocks that could only be used as weapons. Next we attempted “healthy” scones. They also didn’t work out… coated in powdered sugar they still tasted like cardboard. We do have one success though: healthy blueberry cheesecake. Cheesecake is relatively easy to make as a healthy treat (it is still a dessert, just not as fattening as usual). We used fat-free Philidelphia cheesecake and some good blueberry pie filling and it worked out deliciously!!!
So I was a little nervous about our next undertaking: oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. We picked up some missing ingredients from the store and went to work! (My boyfriend chose the reverse oreos: chocolate filling and vanilla cookie.)
Being the oblivious bakers that we are, we followed the chocolate chip recipe on the chocolate chip bag 🙂
Stirring the dough is really fun for me at first because I’m obsessed with cookie dough, but after awhile my hand really started to hurt! (I may have sneaked some dough samples to make myself feel better…)
