Baked cookies after eternal diet. Burned.

by soularcher on December 9, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

So, I hadn't eaten cookies in how long? Since August, and those weren't even real cookies, the perfect chocolate-chip-y goodness-filled marvels.

After ending my diet, which felt like a long time, I wanted some cookies. So I baked them today, in a friend's house. And when I took a bite, all the cookies I had baked were burned.

What's worse, now I feel guilty because I ate some of them anyway. Ha.
