OK, So I am home and having a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Anyone else lurking on the boards? How about a few drinks, some snacks and some random conversation.

Gotta have a few snacks too

So what'll you have?

LosferWords posted 4/27/2013 20:36 PM

Having some nice weather and freshly squeezed margaritas this evening!

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 20:38 PM

Sounds good Losfer. Its actually a bit cool and threatening rain down here in ATL.

LosferWords posted 4/27/2013 20:40 PM

Yikes! It's about 68 and slightly breezy here in CO. Big change from the mini-blizzard we had earlier this week.

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 20:44 PM

Yeah, we hit 80 yesterday and I think the high was 60 today. I think we will have a few more days like this before the temp jumps back up again.

I'm having a bad night.

There's an event at my church next weekend that I can't go to. The coordinator asked me to help, but since I can't go, I told her I would leave a baked good in the church freezer this weekend for the event.

Tried to make peanut butter cookies. Wasn't thinking and added an extra egg. Also used light pb, which I think added to the problem. The cookies COMPLETELY melted. I basically had ugly brittle.

Decided to make them into a trifle. Broke the cookies up, ran to the market for cream cheese and whipped cream, tossed the broken cookies with a $6 bag of reeses minis, made the cool whip/cream cheese mix, tried to spread it over the top. Will not spread. About 1/3 the amount I need to properly cover the darn thing.

I have a headache. I don't want to deal with this. I don't want to go back to the store. I don't want to spend more money on what was supposed to just be a batch of cookies using ingredients already in my kitchen. I can't bring it the way it is now (no one would touch it, it's the ugliest pan of anything that has ever graced my exaggeration....and this is a nicer event). I don't want to make something else at 10pm tonight.

I don't know what to do with it. It's sitting on my counter. I want to throw it away but my kitchen trash is full (I can't take it out at night because the alley isn't safe). Also, there is six freaking dollars worth of reeses minis in there.

I gained three pounds this week, because I stress eat, and it was finals. Part of me wants to say screw it and just go in with a spoon. I was supposed to eat healthy today, and go for a run. I did neither.

I just wanna cry. Seriously.

Stupid freaking extra egg.

ETA: I meant to add: Bartender, I need something strong. Or a couple somethings.

I'll play! What can you mix up for me, bartender?

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 20:50 PM

Sorry it didn't work out Ama. An extra egg is an easy mistake I've made a few times. Even though it won't spread, can you put it all in a pan and nuke it to get it to soften it up a bit to get it to spread? It sounds delicious even if it doesn't look so great.

ETA: Do you like rum? or how about a whiskey sour?

Hey Abby! How about a Margarita?

Amazonia posted 4/27/2013 20:54 PM

honestly, at this point the only thing it would be good for would be eating it as an ice cream topping. That won't really work for the occasion. I need to just throw it out.

nowiknow23 posted 4/27/2013 20:57 PM

((((Ama)))) Here, honey. This should help...

abbycadabby posted 4/27/2013 20:57 PM

Got pomegranate?

simplydevastated posted 4/27/2013 20:57 PM

Can I join in? I'm not drinking anything, just lying in bed deciding what book to read.

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 20:57 PM

Hope one or both of these help.

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 20:59 PM

Join us SD. Gkad to have you.

gahurts posted 4/27/2013 21:03 PM

Got Abby. Sorry for the mix-up

Nature_Girl posted 4/27/2013 21:04 PM

Drinking homemade citrus water. Hungry, but don't feel like cooking. Would love some of that greasy pizza.
