This is my hundredth post! I tend to like celebrating anniversaries and occasions and things like that, but honestly If I tried to make it epic, it probably wouldn’t work, so I’ll keep it nice and simple.
I actually may not post for a bit. I’m growing increasingly irritated with backhanded compliments like “Oh, you’ve lost so much weight! You look SO GOOD!” and equally intrusive people deciding that, though I was too fat before, now I’m too thin. So yeah, I’m feeling under enough scrutiny about body/food/etc. stuff as it is, and photographing what I eat seems less appealing than it did before.
My goal now, as my goal was when I weighed more than I do now, was to eat great tasting, healthy food, with a minimum of anxiety and stress associated with it.
I wanted to use up the last of my accidental ice-cream butter as well as the ludicrous amount of cinnamon sugar my sister made on one of the (rare) occasions that she baked. They were for one batch of Mexican chocolate cookies, and this was how much was left… AFTER I made two dozen Snickerdoodles. She’s so crazy!
I’ll leave you with some nice homey cookie shots.
I basically made the first sugar cookie recipe that I found, in the Fannie Farmer cookbook (which is impressively comprehensive). The cookies were unexciting, but the highlight of reading the cookbook was my mom’s note:
HAHAHA! I would love to know the story behind that.
