Let’s plunge right into the weekend, cookie pictures, and salad inspirations. . . 🙂 As I’ve come from fearing sweets and sugar to enjoying them, I’ve also learned that the most satisfying diet is one that doesn’t lean too far in any direction but includes a little bit of EVERYTHING.

Who doesn’t like a cookie in each hand? And a bowl of salad twice a day or once a day?
Saturday, we made cookies for a street festival that we went to, and I wish I had taken my camera to take pictures of the massive farmer’s/crafts market. It’s so fun walking around and browsing from local artists, artisans, cooks, and businessmen/women.
We took the cookies to our booth. I tried a recipe from Pinterest called ‘Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies!’ Doesn’t that sound good? I was a little scared that they wouldn’t turn out, but they looked perfect.
This is completely weird, but don’t you love the transformation of the cookie dough ball to the cookie? With that, I thought some of my fellow baking/cookie lovers would like to read the ‘History of Cookies.’
The Cookie Process in Pictures:
A. The Finger Dipping Stage (Wash hands in between each stage)
B. The ‘You Can’t put your Finger in these Stage.’
C. The EATING Stage (Thank God for yummy cookies!)
Today was an absolutely marvelous day. It was sunny and gorgeous. Dad was out mowing. Mom was cleaning. I was writing, um.. surprise? ;-D I conducted a couple interviews and…. I had time at lunch to craft a salad. I’ve always loved looking at all the salads Janae crafts. She even did a whole collage of all her FAVORITE salad combinations if you need some new ideas. Here are all her ‘Favorite Salad Recipes in One Post.’
And here are some of my favorites. They’re a bit more simple. 😀
This may be one of the oddest salad combinations, but it did taste good. It had: lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, hummus, roasted chicken, parmesan cheese, pickles! (yum), all dressed with balsamic vinegar and basil pesto oil. 🙂
What’s your favorite salad combo?

Monday. What does the first day of the work week entail for you?
It’s summer. Is it cool or hot where you are?
What did you do for a workout today? I did a HIIT workout from Fitness Blender. 🙂 It was fun… 😀 Kind of.
