Decisions, decisions…..

After much consideration – and lack of time – I opted to bring a selection of cookies from Whole Foods to the Super Bowl party. I chose a variety of cookies: Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal with Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodles, Double Fudge, Brownie Bites, and Coconut Macaroons. It is quite possibly the next best thing to homemade, and certainly the time-friendly (though pocket-book unfriendly) choice. And just to be clear, I am classifying the cookies under “Entertainment Expenses” rather than have them count toward my food budget for the week.

On a side note, I have not decided which team I’ll be cheering for; however, I generally tend to support the underdog, and since the Saints have never been to the Super Bowl there is a high likelihood I will root for them.

The Curve-ball called ‘Life’

Funny how you try to plan things out, but life often has a different idea, throwing a curve ball at you when you least expect it…to make a very long story very short: we had an interesting day (won’t go into details, but we spent some time at the ER today), and as a result I did not make it to the grocery store for the dessert ingredients I need. I am going to play tomorrow (Super Bowl Sunday) by ear as far as what desserts I end up bringing. At this point I may (gulp) buy some brownies or cookies instead of actually making some from scratch…and anyone who knows me knows how much I love to bake – and how resistant I am to buying pre-made!! But, as I said, it was a crazy day. I will keep you all posted!
