There’s nothing like an extra day off on a weekend to energize the spirits, except for maybe an extra week, or two. But yeah, long weekends are somethin’ special in my books and there’s nothing better than waking up on Sunday and knowing you still have two days (TWO!) to do whatever your heart desires.  I tend to spend more time in the kitchen on weekends and thought I’d whip something up with an old bag of chocolate chips I had on hand. Plus, cookies really don’t need much for excuses do they. (No, they do not.)

I found the recipe here, and although it did ask for an addition of nuts, I omitted them and just kept it to a cup of chocolate chips.  Go ahead and play with raisins and nuts and bits of caramel candy if your heart desires. Oh, and add about an 1/8th of a cup of flour because otherwise they do melt a bit too much in the oven.

I planned on doing so many things, and checking off so many items off my list, but ended up just relaxing a little too much. I’ve been having a hard time focusing these days – Do you guys ever have a hard time just getting started? I’ve been hitting the wall pretty hard lately and I’m not sure how to get unstuck. I’ll sit in front of the screen, with a list to my side and then three hours later I’ll be no where closer to checking things off then when I started. Then again, I’m almost all caught up on reading all those blogs I near forgot about months ago. (To be honest it did feel good to do almost nothing all weekend, after all, if those items were that important, they would have found a way to get done. Sometimes that’s the reality of the situation folks.)

We did make it out the market Tonight to get some things for the week, and were inspired to make burgers when we saw some patties at our regular meat guy, which meant we also needed to pick up some gorgonzola and mushrooms and lots of garlic to make sure the flavour was just right. We’re subsequently happy and stuffed with burger ;)


How was your weekend? Hope you’ve all had some time to rest?

    Sounds like the loveliest of long weeks Noemie! Glad you got time to rest and wander cyber space. Lists are good, but just zoning out can be good too :) By the way, those cookies look amazing. I’ve never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like!
