sometimes i eat my feelings
you may have noticed that i haven’t been posting as frequently lately (okay probably just my best friend and mom noticed). we have been dealing with a family emergency and as annoying as i know it is not say more details…i shall leave it at that for now. things are slowly getting back to normal but with the lack of sleep, stress, mental and physical exhaustion i am working on my own self-care lately. guess what this included:
yes, you guessed it. the most delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies made by my MIL! these are seriously the best cookies and do a body/mind/soul gooooood! give me some lactose-free milk to soak this sugary goodness and i’m a happier camper. i unfortunately cannot share this secret family recipe because it’s most likely worth millions, according to my calculations.
annnnd we’ve learned the best trick to keeping your cookies soft and moist (i bet some of you cringed at that word) is ripping up about 2 pieces of bread and sprinkling them amongst your cookies! the bread gets super hard because it releases magical powers to keep the cookies soft-it essentially takes one for the team.
another part of my self-care is eating leftovers with delicious wine from Yamhill Valley Vineyards (more on this amazing wine later). best quote about love “there is no love more sincere than the love of food.”
the new wifestyle: do what you need to do to take care of yourself
1) how do you practice self-care?
2) what are some of your favorite comfort foods?
3) how’s life in your world?
