Why Do The Weekends Fly By?

Hi There All! Boy am I full and sleepy. All I wanted to do was eat today, and eat I did. I'll start with breakfast, I had 1 egg white and 1 egg scrambled with some Kraft FF Cheddar Cheese and lots of ketchup. I also probably had about a pound of grapes while deciding on breakfast, I was STARVING this morning! Thanks to the shot and beer last night! AHAHI also had a mug of Holiday Spice coffee and a half a piece of whole wheat toast on the side.(I had started eating then realized I needed a picture!) I ran to my parents to drop some stuff off and ate a chocolate chip cookie that had just come out of the oven. MMMMM We went to Harry and David to pick up Adam's Dad a xmas present and walked around a bit. We were home early so I did some cleaning and baking! Lunch was a plain Chobani yogurt with frozen berries, and lots of Back to Nature granola (apple blueberry) I also had some of Adam's Wendy's french fries.. YUMMY! Then it was baking time! I made my mom's favorite peanut butter cookies:

1 box yellow cake mix
cup packed brown sugar
cup water
cup creamy peanut butter
cup shortening or vegetable oil
Granulated sugar
Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). In large bowl, beat cake mix, brown sugar, water, peanut butter, shortening and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and, on ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 inches apart. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in sugar.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

I also added semi sweet chocolate chips in since Adam thought it sounded good ;) Unfortunately I ate way too much cookie dough, so I'm not feeling too wonderful! That's what I get!! hahah

I got some work done for school and relaxed. Then decided on dinner, I had a big bowl of salad with tuna and Newman's Own Asian Sesame dressing. I also had some pieces of a sweet potato that I had microwaved (the thing was HUGE) and some reduced fat wheatables and pickle slices. So random I know!! HAHA I also ate 2 of those cookies I made!

Needless to say I'm very full and uncomfortable right now but I enjoyed every single bite ;)

I hope you all had a great weekend! See you tomorrow, its gonna be a late one for me since now its winter sports season and my brother is on the bowling team. This is one sport I totally understand (I was on the team in hs too I'm a big dork I know ) So I'll be running there right from work!
