After spending the last week feeling sorry for myself, I have finally snapped out of it.
The change came when I walked outside and saw that I was growing sunflowers without even knowing it. I had been so consumed by my self pity that I had forgotten to look around me. What a joy to find at least 10 of these little beauties dotting the paddocks.
So I give myself a good stern talking to and went inside and baked these Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip cookies to celebrate.
(By the way, I halved this recipe and it made at least 30 little cookies)
1 can condensed milk
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
5 cups SR flour
250g white chocolate
250g milk chocolate
- Cream butter, sugar and condensed milk until pale and fluffy.
- Add sifted flour and choc pieces and mix well
- Bake at 180 degrees for 15 mins
I know the acceptance has come when today I got home from work and planted some herbs in the garden. This is a long way from getting home from work and slumping onto the couch.
Definitely moving forward!
