Anyways.....the reason I say this, and I know I can because the person in question doesn't read my blog (his wife does though).....I gave someone a cookie today. Yep, one of those mocha latte M & M cookies. I was so kind as to put it on his desk for him at 6:55 a.m. this morning. But only 1 because he is dieting too.
And then I had the attitude from hell to contend with this afternoon at work....I don't understand where some people get work ethics, but pregnancy is not a disease that requires us to treat you with kid gloves. 'Nuff said. So the afternoon was rotten....and..............I..........snuck back into his office and stole the cookie back at 2:30. Yep....I'm awful. Here's your cookie....now here's me eating it because you aren't at the store yet. Sigh.............apparently I AM a stress eater. Who knew?? But damn that cookie was good!!!!!!
Anyhow....I came home craving carbs today so popped some large baking potatoes in the oven. I had already picked my recipe - Smoked Salmon stuffed Potatoes by Cooking Light.
These were tasty, although a tad too lengthy of a recipe to make on a weeknight.
You can find the recipe HERE. It's quasi healthy, so I can pretend the cookie I ate wasn't too bad. Maybe tomorrow I'll leave the other manager an orange....or just not talk to people at work. Good thing Shawn is working his way through those cookies!!
Stay tuned this week to see what these lovely little cupcakes I made tonight turn into! It's for the Easter potluck on Friday at work.....
And a quick tip for all those naysayers (I used to be one too) who don't like cake mixes. By tweaking it you'll never know. If I'm making something super special for someone I'll do everything from scratch. If I'm rushing....I'll break out a cake mix. BUT the key is to change the ingredients up. I didn't use water like the box called for....pineapple juice and almond extract. They smell divine and I can't wait to try one!
