i daydream a lot.

i noticed that today.  i find myself just sitting there at work, daydreaming about stuff.

i think i'm in love with baking.  i just keep looking for the next great recipe to make.  i haven't had a hobby in a long time, so this is good for my soul.  it is not, however, good for my belly!  i do a good job at working out most nights.  i do at least 30 minutes at least 5 times a week, but eating these sweets is taking a toll.  i will have to push it up to 40 minutes a day.

anyways - here is what i made last night :

i call them 'ooey-gooey goodness'

loneliest snowman ever.
these were the most delicious, gooey brownies i'd ever tasted and CERTAINLY the best i've ever made.  i was so proud of them!  evidently, stenciling with gel is not effective - hence why i did one snowman and quit.  the top secret trick (by top secret, i mean i never knew it) is to line the pan with foil and butter the foil up reallllllllly well.  that's what makes them ooey-gooey.

favorite christmas item right now:

santa take along mug!  perfect for my morning tea :)

"santa baby, slip a sable under the tree for me, i've been an awful good girl."
that mug was $4.99 at harris teeter!  special for VIC club members.  YES!  i love their little holiday section.  this is the only thing i've gotten because i'm frugal, but it is so worth $5.

what shall i bake next?  hmmm....
