Cookies, Cool Stuff

Hey, all! Things are good, school is going well. Homework, homework, homework. But I'm still in the kitchen! Last week I made these chocolate chip cookies, the recipe is here. But I had one of those little individual cups of applesauce, so instead of 2 tablespoons I used the whole thing and cut out a little margarine. They turned out fabulously and I snagged this picture really quick when there were only two left!

I made them with my mini ice cream scoop so they're all the same size.. but my friends were a little miffed that they're so teeny. They're like, "bite size cookies!?" Well I think they're perfect! All the more reason to have several at a time! Haha.

I went home yesterday and took the little bro with me. We visited our parents and they took us to Target, yay! Mom bought me these food storage canisters! You BET I used my brand new digital labeler to mark them! Looks like I'm running low on flour. Good thing I'm going to the grocery store today.

So like I said, everything is going well here. I love having an apartment, I get to make dinner almost every night, or sometimes Chris will make it. Last week Michelle (my roommate.. you'll probably be hearing about her more often now,) made dinner: she made fried rice. It was pretty nice, she kept the scrambled eggs and chicken separate so I took my share of rice and added steamed veggies to it, then her and her boyfriend, and Chris had the chicken and egg-y fried rice. Yay, it all works out!

Tonight I'm making the jerk tofu again, it's been marinating in the fridge. This time it won't be as spicy, I left the jalapeno pepper out. Chris has a weak stomach! Well I'm off to see what's due tomorrow. Adios!

Cool to see everything's going well for you! I'm a storage fanatic, so I'm ogling your containers and your label maker- I want one!
Oh, and your cookies look perfect. There's another thing I want- a cookie scoop- ha ha!

Bite sized cookies are so great, and an awesome reason to eat several! They look great.

I just bought some nice storage containers fro my pantry, now I just have to actually fill them too.

yum, look at those cookies!! and I always like when you show your pantry - it's fun to see people's "behind the scenes" stash of ingredients :0)

I too love jerk tofu and ALL things with spice; but, like Chris, I can only handle so much spice at one time, haha.
