First of all, I want to start out by saying that I went hiking this afternoon and LOVED it! I found a park to go to in the evenings to walk off the stress or bottled up energy from the day. I'm so excited to start going there on a regular basis!
When I got home this afternoon after my hiking, I decided that I had enough time to whip up a batch of cookies for my neighbors. I've been wanting to do this since I moved into the apartment but never seemed to have the time or energy for it. Today was the day...and I'm so glad I finally did it.
I got out all of my ingredients that Rebekah, my friend from work, brought to me. I got down my mixing bowl and my mom's famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. The adventure began! After measuring out the first few ingredients I realized that my recipe was for a double batch. In theory, that was an awesome discovery, but for my mixing bowl that was quite a challenge. When it was time to add the dry ingredients, things were getting very interesting. The flour came up to the edge of the bowl and I was met with the challenge of how to stir without getting flour all over my kitchen. Somehow I managed to keep it decently contained and successfully made my first batch of cookies in my apartment. :)
This evening, I am cooking honey mustard chicken with jasmine rice and some green beans. It sounds yummy...and it smells yummy! I'm sure it will taste yummy as well! I think I'm getting the hang of this cooking thing. It's not so bad after all! Well...I think that is all I have to report for now! Glad to finally give some successful news! :)
