Friday is Cookie Day

I’ve decided that Fridays are going to be “Cookie Day” for me. I know that you’re not supposed to “reward” yourself with food, but I don’t care! I eat well (most of the time), I exercise, and after a long week, a cookie is exactly what I need! Cookies are good for the soul! :mrgreen: Expect to see a lot more Friday cookies on the blog!

I am enjoying my Friday afternoon cookie with a cup of decaf coffee (with a sprinkle of cinnamon) at the Cafe Gato Rojo. I selected a soft and delicious oatmeal raisin cookie today. Its flavor is very cinnamon-y!

Lunch was Chobani Greek yogurt with Peace cereal mixed in…

… as well as carrot sticks and grape tomatoes.

I was hungry mid-morning, so I decided to snack on a grapefruit and a mug of tea. However, things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Let me just say there’s a reason people don’t peel grapefruits like they do oranges or clementines!

Look at this carnage! I made such a mess of this poor grapefruit and then gave up on trying to eat it. Lesson learned.

Later this afternoon, the Dean is hosting a fancy-schmancy tea at her home– sounds quite lovely, doesn’t it? It’s the first event like this that I have helped coordinate, so I am super nervous about everything going well today. Wish me luck!

  1. I love your idea of cookie friday….I’m going to add this to my week as well. I recently started a blog for nursing home activity directors and would like to share this with them, if you don’t mind. I think it would be fun to exchange cookie recipes every Friday.
