October Lookback


Here's where I am:

Listening to:

the Partridge Family and endless Zoom calls with the kids' teachers.


when I started working for the family I'm currently working for. They are currently in the process of moving to a larger house and I'm so jealous.


Christmas. I just ordered gifts for friends, my niece, my nephew, a gift for my brother's new baby, the family I used to work for (and may work for next spring), and my grandparents.

Anxious about:

covid-19. I don't want to get sick and I feel like the world is making it impossible to not get sick.

100 Cookies by Sarah Kieffer

We made two different types of chocolate chip cookies: Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies and Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies. My personal favorite was the thin and crispy. I liked the taste better than the brown butter cookies. We also got many more cookies out of the batch. However, I much preferred the baking time for the Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies - 8 minutes for soft cookies and 10 for more crispy cookies. Essentially the Brown Butter Cookies came together more quickly than the Thin and Crispy cookies.

I've very much enjoyed looking through the recipes in this book and I'm looking forward to making more on the cold winter days ahead.

Quarantine Notes:

Now, 1 month out of quarantine:
• started ordering from Instacart. Comparing prices from Whole Foods, Publix, and Kroger.
• Weight on it's way up. I got accepted for a trial with Weight Watchers, so I'm watching my food intake. 
• We've been trying different recipes from different kinds of blueberry scones to chocolate chip cookies to edible dough to Mexican taco soup.
• I've been working on a photo book and putting off all of my household chores to do so. It has involved the editing of eight years of photos.
• Listening to kids do school online and I'm loving the new direction my job has taken.
