I didn't used to be a procrastinator. In fact, I was fairly organized on a daily basis, having all chickies in a row. My friend, Carol, used to remark that she envied me that. I don't know why - the woman is a teacher and I'm pretty sure she is as on top of things now as she was in college. But I think having four kids forced me to get my act together in a lot of ways and that's a good thing.
Lately, though, I seem to put things off just a little longer. No hurry. We'll get there. I knew a week ago that I would need a dessert for tonight's scout meeting, and what do you think I planned? That's right - winging it. I put it off. I kept thinking, oh yeah - I'll think of something.
I came home from work yesterday and found half a bag of mini chocolate chips in the pantry and set them out to remind myself today that I needed to make cookies after work. It just turned out that I had everything else I needed for these super simple cookies. Flour, sugar, butter, eggs, soda, salt, vanilla, and chocolate chips. I would be embarrassed to even post a recipe...
I used an ice cream scoop to make them over-sized, then covered a paper plate in foil to make a fancy serving dish to take to the meeting. There is always So. Much. Food. at these things. So, 11 jumbo cookies fresh from the oven is all I am taking! And no one has to know it was a last minute deal.
This week, we celebrate Hubby's birthday, and I have a visit to my mother planned. Other than that, all is calm...ahhh...January! I might even finish up decluttering the kitchen! What does your week look like?
