Putting off work......

In an effort to not do school work, while also not feeling "idle" I made some feed today. While running errands this morning it was decided that a friend would make some burgers for dinner, so I offered to try my hand at making some rolls. I used the base recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. They turned out rather hearty an big but they were a hit with the burgers.

Here are a few before and afters.
Sorry that there are no giant burger pics, but the camera didn't make it to the patio.

After some relaxing and eating of meats, we succumbed to the rain and packed it in. I saw a post on PheMOMenon! about black and white cookies and it peaked my intrest a bit. I have a very special place in my heart for these cookies. They are not my favorite to eat, nor to make, in fact I haven't made them in almost nine years... The last time I made them was a goofball effort for my now hubby's birthday the first year that we were dating. He is a transplanted Long Islander and grew up munching on black and white cookies. As a surprise I decided that I would make a GIANT black and white cookie (a bit bigger than a record/garbage can lid) and ship it to him our first summer apart during college. Ultimately I successfully made and shipped the massive cookie in time and unbroken for his birthday. Needless to say they remind me of the early days of my relationship with him.

I actually had all of the ingredients on hand so I decided to make the cookies. The recipe came together very easily, quickly, and got a prompt and frosting filled thumbs up from the hubby.
