I also decided to make cookies which are very yummy. I've eaten like half of them already. It's an easy enough recipe to make, though it calls for almond meal which I don't usually use. I picked it up from Trader Joe's though, and I'm pretty sure you can get it at regular grocery stores, if not you can just finely grind up an appropriate amount of almonds.
- 1.5 cups groupnd almonds (6 oz.)
- scant 1/2 cup superfine sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (not in the original recipe, but I put it in.)
- 2 egg whites
- some kind of sugar to decorate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease your baking sheet or use a non-stick. Combine dry ingredients. Whisk egg whites separately in a clean bowl until they begin to stiffen. Fold enough into the Almond mixture to make a fairly firm mixture. Roll the dough into small balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. Slide a metal spatula under each cookie to release, but leave on the cookie sheet to cool. To decorate, you can either roll them in a small amount of powdered sugar before or after baking, or before baking you can roll along one side through raw sugar. Because they come out brown though, this makes them look slightly like meatballs.
I feel like I am somehow more attractive to the wrong kind of guy anymore. There is a guy at work that is creeping me out, and I had to set my MySpace friend requests to private so people would stop trying to proposition me. I don't feel like I'm that hot that people should feel like they're able to come on to me like that. Neither do I feel that desperate. Right now I am interested in one person (beyond your basic never-gonna-happen Jake Gyllenhaal fantasies) and he is in a different state. Everyone else that is stalking me, or interested in me, feel free to keep reading my blog, feel free to say hi to me, I'm still going to be friendly (I work at Starbucks, it's part of my job), but honestly, I'm not interested.
And I'm not interested in anyone more than 7 or 8 years older than me. As a rule. My parents are 25 years apart. I see what's happening to their relationship now and over the past 10 years. I have no desire for a sugar-daddy. Besides which, I was never that into older guys. Harrison Ford, while seriously cool, just doesn't do it for me....
