Millie’s Cookies Recipe

Oh boy, do I love cookies!!! Big one’s, small one’s, fat one’s, slim one’s, brown one’s, white one’s, the list goes on and on. Now growing up, Millie’s was like my local Disney land, they were the best. Unfortunately at some point in the past 4 years, Millie’s has decided to f us over, they have decided for some inexplicable reason decided to shrink their cookies, like wtf, why? And to really take the cookie they haven’t even dropped the price so I’m sorry Millie you have seriously just destroyed my entire cookie heaven. For that I have made my own 

Recipe below…

   

     


Ingredients


125g butter, softened

100g light brown soft sugar

125g caster sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

225g self-raising flour

½ tsp salt

200g chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.


2. Cream butter and sugars, once creamed, combine in the egg and vanilla.


3. Sift in the flour and salt, then the chocolate chips.


4. Roll into walnut size balls, for a more homemade look, or roll into a long, thick sausage shape and slice to make neater looking cookies.


5. Place on ungreased baking paper. If you want to have the real Millies experience then bake for just 7 minutes, till the cookies are just setting – the cookies will be really doughy and delicious. Otherwise cook for 10 minutes until just golden round the edges. 


6. Take out of the oven and leave to harden for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack. 

Not sure where credit is due, it’s a recipe I’ve seen floating around a few sites but these are delicious and resemble Millie’s beautifully. 

Oh Xmas tree, oh Xmas tree.

I lurrrve peanut butter, it’s like soooo nomzalicious. So obviously I’m a fan of Reese’s buttercups, it’s like the most delicious driest nuttiest treat in da whole wild world; when I found they where selling it in the shape of a Xmas tree I had to try it.

Why of course it taste the same as the cups, or does it? strangely enough it wasn’t as good as the cups, the cups are the right size to not become sickly but with the Xmas tree you feel the need to eat it in one go. Not good for little Timmy.

And this bad boy had been on a trip from da USA all the way to the UK then onward to Sweden, that may explain why it looks more like a turd than a Xmas tree.

Anyway it’s all good, it’s still my fav, and when I eat my next tree I’ll take small bites. I promise.

My ears are burning, literally!

Ok so I’ve been naughty lately, I fingered my ear holes! And yes my finger is smaller than my elbow 🙁

Here is the story, I suffer incredibly from over production of earwax, it’s genetic, my entire family on my father side has to have there ears cleaned out at the nurses office annually. Your ears clean themselves so there really isn’t a reason to clean them unless you have overproduction which might lead to a blockage and obviously temporary hearing loss.

So that means no fingers, ear buds, tooth picks, ear candles, a pen and whatever else you have the urge to stick in there. I’ve successfully followed these rules until recently I’ve had the itchiest ears imaginable, is it too much wax causing it? I don’t know! But hell my ears are hurting, burning and itching like crazy now all because I broke the rules and stuck my dirty fingers in my ears. I’m sad and I’m popping ibuprofen, please work!!! Maybe an infection? I should most definitely know by tomorrow.

Anyway here is a sad hipster shot of my meal, you know you got nothing better to post when you post your meal :p

Just another day Frank

It’s just another Friday nothing spectacular apart from it was fricking snowing!!!! I sound more excited in writing when in reality I’m sat on the sofa peering out the window and I say in the most bleak black dullest depressing voice “oh babe it’s snowing” haha that is the truth but in my mind it is thrilling but by the time it reaches my tongue it just sounds like some soul draining slur to kill whatever vibe your carrying. But most things I say come out that way anyway, I need to work on my enthusiasm I think.

Today we had an errand to hand in a form in Lerum centre , so that meant a walk to the bus stop with icy snowy winds suffocating my every breath and annoying baggage but in the end it turned out to be pretty refreshing to get some cold air on my face. Finally got home after some food shopping had a nice meal bathed Olly and got him to the land of nod and then indulged with some cookies a cupcake and grapes, random as fuck but delicious never the less!

Watched a movie (Her) which I have had my eye on for a few months now, was a great movie about some nerd who falls in a love with an Operating system, we all been there right? But also pretty depressing and removing my penis would probably have been more fun then this coma inducing movie but hey that’s what the critics love, I guess maybe I haven’t fully evolved from a bacteria yet. It turned out to be a good day, looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully the snow won’t go too soon.

Good night!

Is it safe to come out yet?

Tomorrow will be one week since we moved away from Pennygången 48! The week has gone extremely fast, too fast to really grasp much of the chaos that has submerged me! Luckily enough it has been a nice semi hot weekend.

Yesterday we finally managed to get the BBQ started and grilled some deliciousness, Fingers crossed were not all on the verge of poisoning because that would be tragic now wouldn’t it. We or I blew Oliver’s new kiddy pool which he absolutely loved! Just need a jackpot win and a tropical holiday or the mother in-law back at work. Time to catch up with Corrie and gain an extra roll of flab, good night!
