Slipping away from Petit Macro: cookies?

Posted Oct 23 2010 12:00am

After the amazing meal the night before… I woke up with a belly discomfort. I don’t know if it was due to eating too oily pasta sauce (blue cheese and walnut sauce) or that I had too much of my beloved homemade breads …. I was bloated even after 8 hours :( So, a macrobiotic breakfast was no than needed

a soup made with bamboo shots, kombu, shiitake, daikon, carrots, kale and miso; oatmeal and edamame.

for lunch I had leftover chickpea millet cake with tofu tartar sauce , steamed veggies, roasted pumpkin seeds and more edamame

I finished writing the first draft of my job market paper. YAY~~~ :lol: To celebrate I went for a run! A short one, just 4 miles but it wasn’t a pleasant one. I got a knee pain after 15 min into running, I tried to walk a little bit to stretch but the pain didn’t go away, so I ignored it and continued. Now I can’t walk straight :( I googled and found that my symptoms resembled to IT Band Symptoms. Any one had this?  Any tip?

Anyway… back home. I wanted to bake something… what? more bread? nop… too time consuming. I wanted to bake something that is easy and fast. Okay. Cookies!!! You know that I don’t have sweet tooth and I almost never eat cookies. But yesterday I kind of wanted one, so I made Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup APF
  • 1 tbsp baking poweder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick butter room temperature
  • 1 cup homemade peanut butter (blend 2 cups of roasted peanuts for 10 min)

It’s sooooo good!!! :lol: Soft, crumbly, tasty and it almost melts in my mouse! hehehehe…. it’s the power of the butter I guess. And the most awesome part? it’s incredible easy to make!!! I said I just wanted one… so who am I suppose to do with the rest of the batch? feed the man!!! :D YAY~~~ Star’s coming back today!!!

As you can see… I don’t follow the plan strictly… I’ve been slipping away quite often, which is totally fine for me because I’m only doing it for fun! :) I am also pausing it during the weekend so I can spend more time with my hubby :D

Q1: Anything exciting this weekend?

Q2: Do you like cookies? What’s your favorite?
