Starting my morning with a homemade cafe misto thanks for the frother I bought at TJ Maxx for $6.99. Foam on top of your coffee just makes it much more decadent.
I started last night with these truffles (after getting my butt kicked at spin class, thank God):
Chubby Hubby from Brown Eyed Baker (my husband liked the taste of these but not the name ;))
Oreo Cheesecake from Brown Eyed Baker – so indulgent
Next on my list are these white chocolate strawberry oatmeal cookies (I’m planning on using cranberries) from Monica Nelson Fitness, some of Averie’s chocolate saltine toffee, and maybe a batch of puppy chow or Chex mix, thanks to all of my comments on yesterday’s post.
I want to make these triple chocolate meringue cookies…
but I’m out of egg whites and was planning on avoiding all shopping areas like the plague.
I made these low fat chocolate chip cookies earlier this week and they were phenomenal. The first “healthified” cookie I’ve made that genuinely tasted like the real deal. Skinnytaste is a great resource, and all about the recipes!
My plans today: yoga (gotta relieve the holiday stress), Shellac manicure (yay!), wrapping gifts (which I’m dreading), and baking (obviously).
How are you spending the day before the day before Christmas?
