Cookie Day

These are the cookies I made up yesterday for J to take to work today.

Oreo cookies covered in vanilla candy melts.  Easy to do but yes it is time consuming.  Would probably have been even more time consuming if I had used the decorator bags to pip the candy into the molds.  I did try on just two cookies to spoon the different color in place but it bled out.  You can see the two cookies in the back that I tried it out on.  Really I don't think the soldiers are going to care what they look like but only how they taste.

In other news, for the past three days I've been making pineapple smoothies.  I found that I really don't like the one with the frozen banana in it at all.  It gives me indigestion.  Yesterday I made pineapple and blueberry smoothie which wasn't bad.  Today it was pineapple and blackberry smoothie.  I make enough for two servings so that I get my serving in every morning and J can have his serving, I stick it in the freezer, as more of a frozen fruit ice in the evening.

My smoothie recipe:

1 cup of frozen fruit
3 ice cubes
1 TBSP honey; more or less for sweetness
3 pineapple rings
1 cup almond milk or low fat milk

Puree' in blender and serve in a glass.



I bought a large package of Oreo double stuff for the above cookies.

  2. That smoothie sounds awesome! My nutritionist friend makes a pineapple and cilantro version, which is supposedly very detoxifying and healthy, although you have to be a fan of cilantro, obvy. :)

  5. The cookies look like they turned out great, and I smiled at your comment about the soldiers not caring how they look. I'm sure you are right :) I'm visiting from ICLW and just wanted to say good luck on your IUI cycle. I will have everything crossed for you. -Erin http://loveismultiplied.blogspot.com/
