Suddenly, I was in the mood to cook. It all started with wanting some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and the cooking continued. My go-to place for recipes is Smitten Kitchen and this chocolate cookie recipe hailed from there. The recipe called for some nuts and since True is allergic, those didn't make the cut. The cookies came out great, but I think I baked them a bit too long because they are just slightly more crunchy than I prefer. Oh well, will try to get soft and chewy next time.
The girls were pretty jazzed about having some chocolate chip cookies. They had some for an afternoon snack and some as an after dinner snack too.
Then I was feeling a bit more adventurous and planned to cook dinner. Usually, I wait for Ben to come home to figure out what to eat, but the only down thing to that is that the girls get to bed slightly later because it takes us forever to figure out what to cook. This time I thought I would help a bit and get dinner started myself. Plus, I was kinda wanting some yummy burger and in my search, I thought this Wild Mushroom-Cheddar Burger sounded delicious and delicious it was!
At first, when I tasted just the mushrooms, I wasn't impressed and was thinking I might not like the burger. But when you put all the flavors of the mushrooms, cheddar cheese, meat, and the chipotle ketchup together, the burger was nothing but yum! This recipe will definitely be repeated again. Along with the burger, we had a side of baked sweet potato fries. I am happy to report that everyone's tummies were happy and full and the girls were in bed right at 7:30!
