I woke up earlier than I needed to this morning. Of course, I tried going back to sleep, but it didn't work. It rarely does for me anyway. So then I figured there were two things I could do:
1) Get on Facebook and waste the extra 40 minutes of morning time I had stalking/creeping on people I don't really care about at all [nor vice-versa].
I decided to go with the latter. Also as a kind of test to see if I could actually successfully bake something and not miss the bus to grounds.
Bam. AND I DIDN'T MISS THE BUS.
It was quite the successful morning.
Homemade Oreos with peanut butter filling. I baked these for my dear friend Zach, who celebrated his 20th birthday this past Tuesday. Earlier tonight one of his good friends threw him a surprise party, and since he'll be out of town all weekend on some silly XC shenanigans, I figured I'd whip these together to give him today. Though Noosh did sandwich them for me while I was in class, which was a tremendous help.
Since he's a big fan of the chocolate and peanut butter combination [and I mean, come on, who isn't?], I decided to go with the Oreo. [I also recall many a late-night calc II study session in which we devoured (read: emotional eating) packs of Oreos, so it had to be done.]
Man. These were good. Like, surprisingly good. Especially the filling.
It's good that I had to give them all away.
All but the two that I ate.
But nevertheless. Things would be much worse if I still had the plate sitting in front of me.
In other news, ONLY ONE WEEK UNTIL HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART ONE.
It's going to be hard to contain my excitement in the next seven days.
