Day 49 – January 27, 2011

Today, I went to look for boxes to ship your baked goods at Office Depot or Office Max.. who knows that it’s called. I found some plastic boxes that were good for organizing my baking stuff since it was mad chaos. They were so pretty…

Organized cookie cutters!

Ooooh.. Aaaaah...

I labelled the boxes with dry erase marker because I want to make some pretty labels for the boxes.

I had just pulled everything out of the cupboard and my kitchen was a total disaster when I got a text from EE asking me if I wanted to go out for drinks… I told her I had the lamest excuse for saying no.. that I was reorganizing part of the kitchen and she told me she wanted to meet up a couple of hours later so I agreed to go out!

While cleaning the apartment, I saw the poor little Whole Foods bag..

RIP baggy... you will be missed by the kitties

and had to retire it. It was ripped open and it had lots of little claw marks from Eddie since he kept jumping Dusty while he was in it.

Just before 9, we went to our neighbourhood bar for some cheap drinks

Cheap beer and cheap pizza!

The 25 oz beer was $4! Not too shabby…

EE & WT!

I had asked for a smaller beer the second time around but the waitress brought me a big one again… When WT showed up after work, I gave him some of mine.. and then the waitress brought him his Lone Star and he pushed my Miller Lite back to me. Punk!

We stayed out a little later than we wanted to.. but it was still a good time 🙂

Day 37 – January 15, 2011

This morning, I went to the gym… Stephanie’s class. It was hard but because I got there late, I didn’t have a bar bell, only body bars so it wasn’t too heavy 😀 It was still a tough workout. I tried part of the kickboxing class but I was uber tired so I left early.

I headed home and had a smoothie and after I skyped with you, I got ready to go to the knife skills class.Dang.. the parking lot looked like rush hour traffic. I got to class a tad late but they had just gotten started. We diced and julienned a ton…

pretty diced bell peppers

Pineapple salsa in a bag!

coleslaw in a bag

We cut cabbage, bell peppers, carrots, cilantro, pineapple, and jalapenos… we ended up with coleslaw and pineapple salad. It was a good class. I think I’ll be taking the second part! I fell asleep at 8pm.. I was tired!

Yay for long weekends!

Day 6 – December 15, 2010

The day started off with me making some dough so I could bake some cookies today.

Prepping the dough before going to work

When I came home from work, my knife block had been delivered, so I went to the office to pick it up. Naturally, Eddie couldn’t keep away from the box!

After a few challenges, I finally got it installed and loaded it with some knives.. ones that I know what they’re for [ok the ones I think I may know what they’re for] 😀

Baked and decorated some cookies

Snowflakes

Christmas Trees

Reindeer and presents

Perhaps decorating cookies isn’t for perfectionists.. those who are really *picky* about making sure things look the way they’re supposed to. Crooked lines, gaps in lines, and not perfectly round dots were making me go nuts!! Perhaps the icing was a little harder than it should’ve been… I’ll continue to try because I can’t let it defeat me!! Maybe I should stop wearing glasses while decorating cookies or have a beer or 2 so I’m less uptight about the decorating!

We’ll see how tomorrow goes w/the cookies…
