That’s right, I was brave enough (with the help of Toby), to ride my bike out on the street today. We were craving some mexican burritos, so we rode down to Tolteca (the chipotle knock-off). So… I rode my Dublin bike down there
Later today, I also met with another girl from Cork I had met through the “ladies who lunch” and grabbed some coffee. I even got a dublin bike and rode home on my own!! I came home to find this…
Someone had a food coma from their burrito.
Also, yesterday, we took Keeley to St. Stephen’s Green to throw around her new ball… 🙂

Then, when I got home, I felt like cooking more food! So, I made cookies for Toby’s office tomorrow…
- 2/3 cup butter, softened
- 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 c. sour cream (I didn’t have any sour cream, so I used a cup of yogurt and an extra 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Blend together butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time; blend well. Add vanilla; beat until light. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with sour cream; mix well
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto non-stick or lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove to a wire rack; cool. Frost with Browned Butter Frosting. Makes 2 dozen
i frosted a few of them with the frosting recipe listed on that same link, but I didn’t like how it turned out, so I only frosted a few.
Also, I went and got my prescriptions finally switched over, and went and filled my prescriptions this weekend. The whole process works pretty much the same. The only difference is that they give your meds in a different package. Normally, your meds come like this…
But when you get it here, they give you the medication like you bought it from over the counter
Anyway – just the little things that are different…
Hope everyone had a good weekend! We were going to take a day trip today, but we got up this morning and it was SOOO cold… it was like 30 degrees with 20 mph winds, so we decided to not make today a walking around outside day. Next weekend it’s going to be in the 50s, so I think we’re going to take a day trip sometime next week.
