Cookie Monsters

Sunday night, BFF Debbie brought over some delicious fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies.

I was really looking forward to having one for a snack attack this afternoon, when I realized they were all gone! I texted Jason, and sure enough, he snagged them all up. Hmm… looks like we have a cookie monster in the house!

I had some extra time after finishing my homework and an extreme cookie craving, so I decided to bake a batch of my own!

I ate two cookies hot out of the oven. Some things are definitely worth the effort.

There was also dunking action in a small glass of milk… but I was cleaning and forgot to photograph!

I followed the recipe on the back of the Publix chocolate chip bag to the T (except didn’t add nuts) and I had to use whole wheat flour instead of white because we’re out. I couldn’t taste any difference, though.

I didn’t realize this recipe made FIVE DOZEN cookies. Wow! I made two dozen and saved the dough in the freezer!

I then headed to my 6:00-9:30 classes and when I returned I was beyond happy that my dinner was already in the fridge, just needing to be reheated.

My random looking combo was quite filling and much better than a frozen dinner!

It included:

  • Soba Noodles
  • snow peas
  • red pepper
  • matchstick carrots
  • zucchini cut into little strips
  • edamame
  • bean sprouts
  • scallions
  • 1 TBL whole foods brand Peanut sauce
  • dash soy sauce

I really like planning ahead! I could get used to this! I used a lot of the same ingredients for tomorrow’s lunch, so check back to see another delicious combo!

Goodnight, bloggies! 😀

  1. I love your dinner combo, all those ingrediants are so good, especially soba noodles. I could make stir-fries with those everyday!

  2. Your dinner looks delish!

  3. Mmm nothing beats hot cookies fresh from the oven. Tell Jason hands off!! 🙂 And dinner at 9:30 (or even later??) really?! Oh man darlin’ I’m sorry!! But it looks super tasty!

  4. I eat the dough and the cookies straight from the oven. I am my house’s cookie monster. 🙂

    Another good thing to use is whole wheat pastry flour. It gives you the whole wheat, but less grit.

  5. Funny, my TJ’s Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies seemed to magically dissapear as well. I think I have a little cookie monster living in my home too! Oh boys. 😉

    Great job on planning ahead. Plus that dinner looks incredible. So balanced, full of goodness, and delicious!

    Have a great day Megan!

  6. Mmm the cookies look awesome. Nice job on planning ahead. It really does help.

  7. Those cookies look awesome! I want to make some now!

  8. the dough looks so good!
    eating the cookies right out of the oven is the best way to do it 🙂

  9. Not sure if you’ve tried this, but if you put the unused dough into the fridge for an hour and then shape them into balls, you can put them in ziploc containers in the freezer and then it’s easy to just pull out one or 2 balls when you want a cookie and bake in the oven! (instead of freezing the whole heap of dough and having to thaw the entire batch at once).

  10. […] Do these ingredients look familiar? […]
