UK Treats

8 Oct

I was downtown Wednesday for a hair appointment, which I would post a picture of since I am enjoying the cut but it was pouring rain and even with my umbrella the hair do didn’t last until I got home, sigh. Trust me to pick the one day all week with rain to take transit! lol

Anyways! When I was downtown I passed this little Scottish/English Shop that is never open when I am in the area and lo and behold it was open! I didn’t really have any reason to go in, but I thought why not, it’ll be full of things I enjoy even if they are all overpriced and completely unnecessary.

Soooo yeah, overpriced? Yup! Did I end up buying? That’d be another yup! lol πŸ˜›

In my defence I did not buy the Snowballs, the shop clerk gave them to me as a present for buying the other items. Which I would say was very nice of him but I figure he probably had too many in stock and was trying to get rid of them, why else would he give away free stuff? I maaaaay have eaten one, strictly out of curiosity of course and it was good, I enjoyed it, depending on the cost I would maybe buy them next time which now that I think of it may be why he gave them to me for free this time, to get me hooked! He is a Snowball pusher! *shock*

I have resisted the Yorkie chocolate bar but am super excited for when I do eat it lol I’m saving it as a treat, not sure what I will have to do to earn it but I’ll come up with something, I’m good at finding reasons to eat chocolate lol

I tried the Dandelion & Burdock drink this evening, I thought I liked it but I was wrong. Let’s just leave it at that shall we? Okay fine, I can’t leave it at that, it was soooooo sweet!

As for the candies they are a variety of flavours, I should have taken a picture of the display so I wouldn’t forget the flavours cause oops, I can’t remember them all lol The yellow and pink ones are rhubarb and lemon…that’s all I can remember and since I’m not going to power eat through the candies so I can tell you what all the flavours are we shall all have to remain in suspense. Cause ya know, I’m sure all of you reading this are just dyyyyying to know the flavours of the candies lol πŸ˜‰

I went in hoping to find certain treats but sadly they didn’t have them, which reeeeeally, is probably for the best since none of the stuff I was hoping they’d have are healthy, or low calorie, or would remotely fit in to my eating plan but hey, a girl can dream, *big epic sigh*

Let’s Celebrate!

8 Oct

I got some super exciting, happy dance worthy, wOOt! wOOt! news this evening and I just haaaad to celebrate! But what to do? It is a Thursday evening, no way was I going to be able to drag a friend out to do something, and really, I didn’t want to get out of my sweat pants lol Instead I baked! This would make three weeks in a row…oh the calories I am creating in my kitchen! lol πŸ˜›

None of the baking is for me, I ate one cookie to test them, one! I gotta say, it was tasty, Mmm!

I made Soft Pumpkin Cookies, they are supposed to have a glaze on them but I opted out of that because well, they are good without the glaze and why add calories when they aren’t needed?

The recipe lied to me though, it said the batch of cookies would be 35, it made 21. Quite the difference! I made them the size the recipe said to so I’m not sure how the writer of the recipe got 35 cookies when I only got 21, shrug. It is a little annoying because I am taking them to work tomorrow and there won’t be enough for everybody which is unfortunate. It’ll have to be a first come first served type of thing I guess.

Oh, I also made another batch of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread but I’m not putting a picture of that up since it is the same as the batch I made last week so nothing new there. Well, I left the walnuts out this time because the group this batch is for has people in it with nut allergies and I don’t really want to be responsible for killing someone with my baking, talk about earning a lot of bad karma! πŸ˜‰ teehee
