A Day In My Kitchen

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 21, 2009

Good afternoon!

Well, I am sad to say that we are supposed to get another snow storm tonight- 10-15cm! Ugh, when does it end!?

Onto happier thoughts :D

Today I spent the day in the kitchen…I’d say about 5 hours worth! Eric is working today so after he left I decided it was time to add another cookie to my ever growing bakery collection. Afterward, I had some fun playing photographer and then not so much fun with clean up.

What did I make?

The classic sugar cookie with a twist.

Wheat Sugar cookies!

No longer are sugar cookies simply a load of white flour…these babies had some wholesome 100% whole wheat flour added in for some fibre.

And now for the good stuff….

For today’s batch, I went with the Blue + Pink Oh She Glows colours:

And then the not so fun part…clean-up..

I spy with my little eye:

  • Almond Breeze
  • Squash
  • Amy’s Organic Crackers
  • Bulk raw almonds in tupperware
  • 2 boxes of Larabars from Bree :D
  • No name whole wheat bread
  • Pasta
  • Cat treats

I am now exhausted and still have more clean up to do!

I am also fighting a cold (thanks hubby!) so I am just going to take it easy tonight. Eric quickly reminded me this morning that I am too short to scrape the popcorn off the ceiling. This is the only time in my life where being short (ok average height!) has come in handy. Ok, this and being able to fit in small spaces. :D Tomorrow is going to be popcorn day…we are recruiting our friends and family with bribery (Free beer and my cooking). Oh behave.

The cookies are adorable! I HATE cleaning after baking. So sorry you have to do it :(

Yay for popcorn scraping party. I would be in the kitchen with you if I were there. :)

haha, that reminds me of my kitchen after I cook! I think if you don’t make a mess when you cook then you are not having enough fun :)

Mmmmm sugar cookies! So good! When I was little, I always wanted to help my brother bake. This, of course, meant that I got stuck with clean up duty, but I didn’t care because he let me help him. If only cleaning up had the same flare as it did when I was ten!


Kristie February 21, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Those cookies are CUTE. I can’t wait to see more from this super bakery of yours. Keep em coming!
And get better!

I love to cook, but oh the cleanup… Your cookies are adorable, I love the little blue flowers! :D


Valerie February 21, 2009 at 9:24 pm

Those cookies look so cute! I love baking too but hate the mess afterward.
It’s snowing here too (I’m in southwestern Ont.) and I hope it stops soon! We’ve only got about 5cm but that’s enough for me at this point in the year!


Brandi February 21, 2009 at 9:29 pm

I love the cookie on a stick! You have such a great kitchen! I wish I had that much space, I always feel so cramped in mine! Have a fun Oscar Night! I’ll be at work, but thinking about you guys all watching it together!
