Lots of Cookie Dough

Good morning! This weekend I went home to visit my parents. They are both stellar cooks so I enjoyed myself!

Dinner on Friday

I decided to get a little crafty for dessert and attempted to make a 5 minute chocolate cookie I found on Pinterest.

The consistency was a little off (probably because I used Greek yogurt in place of butter- oops!) but I thought it was pretty good. Just add rainbow sprinkles to a dessert and it’s bon apetite for me!

Saturday’s breakfast

On Saturday, my Mom and I went to the YMCA and took a Zumba class. These classes are so fun and a great workout too! After that, we came home, showered, and went with my Dad to Costco and Trader Joe’s.

Costco samples = a fun lunch!

That evening, I went out to dinner with Lee and some of our friends.

Note to self: don’t order a Caprese salad at a pizza/sandwich place (A+ for appearance though!)

Lee showing his poboy and fries- yum!

On Sunday morning it was baking time, yet again! I made Lindsay’s cookie cake that I also found on Pinterest.

A cookie cake for my co-workers’ birthday celebration

Then it was time to head back to Charlottesville. My roommate and I decided to make these grain-free protein cookies we found on Pinterest. (I think I may be overly obsessed with Pinterest!)

They were pretty good but I thought the garbanzo flavor was a little strong. (I’ve used white beans to make desserts before which yielded quite tasty results.)

After eating 2 of our cookies, I decided to eat dinner. A little backwards but whatever!

I’ve gone nacho crazy. After my favorite dinner, I had my favorite dessert- froyo!

It was a cookie dough filled weekend. 🙂

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Do something fun today to turn Monday from mundane to marvelous!

  20. CookiePod says:

    keep doing yo thang cookie dough

  21. What a fun weekend! That salmon looks great 🙂

  22. So.much.cookie.dough. – looks SO good! I love cookie cakes but only have had the premade ones from the grocery store which are flatter and a bit denser than yours looks … A fluffy cookie cake sounds delic!

  23. Allie says:

    Sounds like a great weekend with the fam! And Costco + TJ’s are the best shopping trips, looove hitting Costco on weekends and filling up on samples, haha. I need to look less distinctive so I can hit them all twice…or bring a wig for a second round 😉

  24. This sounds like such a fun weekend!

    Also, I love how you actually make recipes from Pinterest. I pin about 100, but never really make any of them 😛

  25. […] It’s funny how the less movement I get, the more tired I feel. Doesn’t it seem like it should be the other way around? Whatever works though- I certainly like to stay active! I’m looking forward to a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend at home with my family this weekend! Maybe my mom and I will take another Zumba class. […]
