offering

I meant to update this weekend. Right now, I feel like there were lots of topic, full of interesting zing and zoom. But of course, I don't remember right now. So all I can offer you is 1) an image of how awful this apartment-searching is being to me and 2) a cookie recipe.

1) Boring way: Like pulling teeth.
Better and far more accurate way: Like pulling teeth from your ears.

Better things will follow ... right... now!
2) I made these ginger molasses cookies twice. Both times fantastically delicious. And easy!! Clink the link. Click the lick. A hit at the office! Win more friends!! Answer to all problems! Panacea! Yeah, SAT vocab. Coming in handy at life, aaaaas usual!

They go well with chai.

Thanks Brenda Hall from allrecipes.com!
3/4 cup margarine, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup white sugar
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DIRECTIONS:
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted margarine, 1 cup sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger; blend into the molasses mixture. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until tops are cracked. Cool on wire racks.

But mmmm I can't wait. Or I'm going to be extremely surprised. Especially because I happened to buy chai mix today. Yesterday. You are the best friend ever!!! BFF!!!!
Also, over at allrecipes, is an excellent chocolate bundt cake recipe (http://cake.allrecipes.com/az/ChocolateCavityMakerCake.asp). The best part is that if you screw it up, it's still chocolate. And everyone will love you for it. As a side note, some people substitute in strong coffee/espresso for the liqueur, but a bit of Kahlua really adds a nice kick that's most noticeable while the cake is still warm.

tasty cookies. I think I might try to make them too. I'm going insane. I hate time and stuff.
