Ode to the Mixer, Part II
It's almost Thanksgiving. Thank goodness. Last year, I would have been happily home by now. Alas for universities that don't give extra days off. It's sad. Especially when the last and only class I have tomorrow is a quiz. But the only other things standing between me and a nice long weekend is studying for said quiz and a potential snowstorm. I even finished enough homework to feel like I don't need to be panicking over homework. Wonderful.
Tonight was kind of an eat-anything-that's-in-the-fridge-that-shouldn't-stay-over-the-long-weekend type night. That included homemade applesauce, salsa, milk and banana yogurt. And of course, banana yogurt is the perfect excuse to eat waffles. Mmmmm.
But yesterday, I actually baked cookies! It was so exciting! I had decided weeks ago that I was going to make pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies for my office mates for Thanksgiving. I was remembering these pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies, and really just wanted an excuse to make more.
However, what I had forgotten was that those cookies came out of me raiding the pantry at home to see what there was to make with a brand new mixer.
I have a beautiful new mixer sitting in my apartment that hadn't been used till yesterday for making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Pure coincidence that it was the first time I used it and it was the same thing.
I think it's pretty awesome though.
And I love my mixer.
The cookies are so easy -- it's just Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice cookie mix with about half a bag of chocolate chips mixed in after the dough is made. And they apparently taste homemade. I got several compliments on my "from scratch" cookies.
