Time For A…

I’ve had one of those days that if there could be a snag or bump in the road, I hit it.

Everything from burning my finger on my coffee pot that I thought was cool to dumping a bag of frozen edamame all over the floor to Skylar ripping her favorite pair of pants and having her own snag-alicious day.

Nothing that’s earth-shattering but it’s time for a…

Deep breath.


And time to think about chocolate.

Dark Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies Stuffed with Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls

Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars (GF with Vegan options)

White and dark chocolate, peanut butter, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk….yeah.   Time for one of those.

And if the chocolate doesn’t work, time for a Baileys Slushie!


1. What’s your number one “I’ve had a long day and need something amazing tasting” snack or food?

Mine include chocolate, good coffee, peanut butter, or really desserts of any kind.

Definitely sweet, not savory.  Some people want chips or french fries.  I’ll take chocolate.

2. Fill in the Blank: 

It’s Time For ____________

(It’s Time For a run before it becomes pitch black outside!  Dark by 5pm is so not my preference.  And then it will be Time For dinner, the dishes, photo editing, and maybe a little Real Housewives on my DVR.  Guilty pleasure that I make time for.)

    I hate those days…I always stop at Starbucks on my way home from work for a pick-me-up or buy a new bottle of wine :) I seriously like your chocolate solution though…especially those Nutella brownies. Hoping tomorrow is a better day for you and Skylar both!

    It’s time for….wine and cheese. :)
    But wait, that is all the time!

    Hope your day gets better!

    It’s time for bed for me! Body is still adjusting to the time change so 9 o clock hour is sounding too good to pass up. Glad it wasn’t huge bumps in the road for you today and things that some sweets can fix :)

    tea is my answer to everything, and some dark chocolate…I also find meditation and petting furry animals helps a lot. :)
    I hope your day improves! The way I see it, a bad day makes the good days seem that much better. Maybe?

    Dessert definitely makes everything better. Your day sounds like mine which started with locking my keys in my car at work:)

    Man, I hear ya– my pregnancy hormones were in full gear today. On those days, nothing is better than a comforting dinner…and a food rub from the hub :-)

  7. Katie — November 29, 2011 at 7:06 pm (#

    For me it’s a beer, some super salty chips, and followed up with chocolate of some sort–Oreos, cupcakes, or cookies. Doesn’t matter!

    Hope you have a better rest of your day and that the sweets can cure it quickly!

    ice cream, definitely ice cream. a slice of carrot cake doesn’t hurt either.

    it’s time for BED! i’m exhausted. and the 5 pm. darkness makes me tired earlier than usual.

      I blame 19 hour days for part of my issues…I can’t believe you’re getting ready to go to bed. Lucky you :)

    raw tofu dipped into hot marinara sauce! x

    definately coffee..usually a comforting one like a latte or cappucino!! I also love oatmeal..I know wierd, but somethig comforting about it!

    Oh my, those dark chocolate, chocolate covered strawberry cookies look and sound to die for! If I find those chocolate covered strawberries I will be making those!

      TJs sells choc covered fruit but they aren’t ‘essential’ to the recipe…you could stuff them with a hershey’s kiss, nothing, a piece of snickers bar…whatever!

  12. Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries — November 29, 2011 at 8:18 pm (#

    Oh yes, I’m all about the chocolate and peanut butter when I’m having “one of those days” or any day for that matter! ;)

  13. Estela @ Weekly Bite — November 29, 2011 at 8:22 pm (#

    Wine and Cheese for me after a rough day :)

  14. Katie — November 29, 2011 at 8:27 pm (#

    Chocolate and wine. The universal “make my day better” solution.

  15. Char @ www.charskitchen.ca — November 29, 2011 at 9:26 pm (#

    I had a somewhat similar end to my day…When that happens, I like to snack on my 5 minute peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough balls, chocolate, and/or a big bowl of steamed veggies (broccoli, brussels sprouts, etc). The comfort of the sugar/fat plus the grounding feeling I get from greens helps my system feel calm when I’m anxious :) All is well now.
    P.S. I loooooove the sound of those Oreo balls! I clicked over- yum yum!

    Yay, Averie! You won my giveaway. I hope that makes your day better! ;)

    Wow, the chocolate desserts look great! I especially love the Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

    I hate days like those. I almost always resort to chocolate cake, sometimes it’s the only thing that helps.

    Oh man, days like that seem to snowball somehow don’t they? Makes you want to just try to sit safely on the couch.

    Chocolate. A glass of wine. A gin & tonic. Not neccessarily at the same time :D

  21. Kait — November 30, 2011 at 8:12 am (#

    CHOCOLATE. I am addicted to Theo chocolate (taste + ethics) and could eat a bar in one sitting.

    Its time for me to finish my personal statements for grad school applications!

    Sorry you had a rough day! My go-to pick-me-up is a date stuffed with nut butter. So decadent!

    It’s time for this week to be over. It’s been long and I’m ready to relax and hang with the boyfriend!

    I am having one of those days at work today!!! Everyone has a problemo today!! I am definitely ready for this week to be over, glad your bumps weren’t big ones. I definitely grab a glass of wine and/or some sweet stuff after a day like that.

  26. Amber K — November 30, 2011 at 11:12 am (#

    Definitely something sweet, chewy, and amazing. I think a molasses cookie sounds awesome right about now because it fits all of those!

    Sorry about you day of snags, that can be super frustrating when it impacts productivity. I recently dumped a huge bag of frozen berries all over the kitchen, super fun clean up … NOT! Chocolate is my go to for bad days, usually raw balls since they’re fast to whip up and easy to freeze.

  28. Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) — December 4, 2011 at 8:58 am (#

    It’s time for BAKING!!!!!! And Christmas shopping.

    If I have had a long day, I want something crunchy.
