Time got away from me today. Brian is away at a retreat and I was trying to get the house back in order. Before I knew it, it was 6:45 and I needed to be at girls’ night at 7:30– yikes!

I got to work on the cookies– a wonderful recipe I found on one of my baking recipe sites. While they were in the oven, I whipped up the cheese tray in seven minutes flat (see below).

Let’s be honest– I was still late. But not that late– and I arrived with deliciousness, so all was forgiven 🙂


Try out this cookie recipe on King Arthur Flour’s site. I baked 12 minutes and used cranberries, walnuts, and chocolate chips.

Here’s the before and after on the cheese tray– seriously, seven minutes. There’s goat cheese and an English cheese with apricots, wheat crackers, grapes, and two types of olives.

I’m at girls’ night now. Brian’s still gone at the retreat. I’m ready for him to be home. So ready. Hopefully, there’ll still be cookies left for him to enjoy 😉
