Has anyone else been feeling super dehydrated lately?
No matter how much water I chug, I just canâ€™t get hydrated! I feel like Iâ€™m living in a cold, balmy Sahara dessert. It must be the dry heat from the heaters? Ugh.
In other newsâ€¦
I tried to make Christmas cookies last night and had not one, but TWO major kitchen flops.
- Cookie Rookie Mistake #1: I overly melted the rock hard butter in the microwave. Normally 15 seconds is good enough to cheat the system and bring butter to room temp, but I guess I hit two 1â€™s and totally melted the butter. The result was flat, runny cookies.
- Cookie Rookie Mistake #2: I swapped baking soda for baking powder (or the other way around, Iâ€™m so confused) and ended up with sad, flat cookies.
Ah well. At least the first batch is edible (just spread out and kind of ugly). Iâ€™m going to a Christmas party tonight so I think weâ€™re going to have to swing by the grocery store so we can buy something to serve up as dessert.
I did, however, managed to make a successful breakfast!
In the mix:
- Raw oats
- Canned pumpkin
- Vanilla Greek yogurt
Anyone else ruining cookies, slugging water, or attending an ugly Christmas sweater party? Ooooooh yeah.
