Weekend’s Best – Cinnamon Sugar Almonds

Man I was so not a happy camper when my alarm went off this morning, but it’s Monday whether I like it or not, so I better just roll with it right?! We had a party every night this weekend, so I guess my body is a bit exhausted from all the foods and excitement! I’m really looking forward to a relaxing day of work. NOT.

Weekends Best BreakfastIMG_3048Whole wheat toast with PB + Amanda’s homemade applesauce 

Warm melty peanut butter along with some warm cinnamon applesauce? Yep, I’m addicted. I literally ate 2 big mugs of this applesauce warmed up each morning. Who needs oats to warm your belly when you have applesauce?!

I bought 3 of the peanut butters and 2 jugs of the coconut water. And I already finished one of the peanut butters. But I did use it to bake too, so don’t judge me.

Weekends Best Moment in the KitchenIMG_3050

I was in the kitchen for 3 hours just finishing up these cookies. The dough alone takes like 10 minutes to make, but then you have to chill the dough, roll, cut out and bake,
and that process is repeated a million times it feels like! Then of course I decorated them, which took an hour itself. But according to everyone who inhaled them, they were totally worth it.

I packaged these little babies up and threw them into some gift baskets I’m making for my co-workers this year. I also may or may not have sampled a few handfuls.
