So, I totally forgot my camera today.
I’m so sad because lunch was great! We went to a newer place in town, Greens, and tried some of their sushi. I’ve had their veggie burger before (delicious), but their sushi rolls just sounded so interesting.
I got their Green’s Vegetarian Roll which was cucumber, asparagus, lettuce and ginger rolled up in nori and rice, topped with sliced avocado, crushed walnuts (!) and coconut(!!) and then drizzled with some spicy red sauce and green sauce. With some pickled ginger and wasabi, my nose was burnin! Loved it.
It was such a pretty roll! I really am sad I didn’t have my camera with me. But no worries – we’ll be back ;)
As for work…it was slow today. There was barely anyone in the office, so it was super quiet and lonely. Good for getting stuff done, but not really fun to basically be alone in the office.
Dinner was great, though!
We heated up leftovers of my pea pesto pasta, ham, and veggies.
I am loving this Niman Ranch ham! I’m so happy we have some leftover because I think it will be great with breakfast.
We finished up dinner and took another mile long walk with our little neighbor and Maggie this evening. Still way too muggy here, but it was nice to get outside and stretch our legs.
As for the cookies…
Nick has been asking for a batch of real cookies (i.e., lots of butter) for a few weeks, and I just kept forgetting to get the ingredients.
And – I’d received a special family recipe from a reader/blogger for some amazing chocolate chip cookies that I told him about and tonight, I finally made them.
While I cannot give out this recipe (family secret and I promised not to!), they are definitely the exact cookies I remember having when I was younger.
When I was growing up, this one lady at church would always bring chocolate chip cookies to potlucks and fellowships, and I could not stay away from them. They were different than my mom’s cookies – the regular Tollhouse recipe – but I had no clue what made them special.
Someone a few rooms down in my dorm made a batch of cookies one night to share, and I knew in that first bite that these were the same cookies my church lady used to make. So, I found out what the secret ingredient was, but never got her recipe.
Thankfully, a fun recipe exchange with a blogger/reader ended up with me having the very recipe I’ve been searching for!
Hallelujah. And Amen.
Nick has had 6, plus a glass of milk, and I’ll bet he has at least 4 more tonight.
I married a cookie monster.
