Checked Off the Weekend List
I did not want to get out of bed this morning. It’s been cloudy, raining, dreary, drizzling, or overcast for a few days and rainy weather, alarm clocks, and Mondays don’t go together.
I went for a run and narrowly avoided getting downpoured on, which I consider a success.
Over the weekend I did a little thrift store browsing for some dishes, photography props, and various things I just can’t live without.
Unfortunately my kitchen storage space is already maxed out.
And I do mean, maxed out.
Every single drawer or cupboard has something in it.
Nothing like a 100 square foot kitchen.
So anything I buy, I really have to love-love-love or else I skip it.
As much as I hate feeling like I am letting potential great finds that I see when out and about slip away,
Better put those cute plates to use with some cute cookies on them.
Or make new cute cookies which sounds like fun, too.
Over the weekend I also tackled a baking project that I wanted to check off my list.
A big bowl of love: Melted peanut butter, butter, my new favorite baking chocolate, and vanilla extract.
Then I added a little bit of this,
some sugar and two other kinds of chocolate, a little bit of that, and came up with a winner.
I just got done taking pictures of the finished dessert and it’s even better as a finished product than chocolate peanut butter soup was on its own.
Taste-testing as I go and sampling the goods was also on my weekend list.
Next up will be to sample one of these
