So during last week’s blog break, I opened my MacBook rarely. It felt good, detaching myself from the interwebs and social media for a short time. I took off work, so I really wasn’t staring at pixels all day and enjoyed my time relaxing, spending time with my family, catching up with friends, and relaxing some more.
Before that blissful week I baked these chewy double chocolate peppermint cookies from the Minimalist Baker blog. No doubt there was a lot of peppermint candy cane shavings in my kitchen from candy cane smashing. I didn’t use peppermint extract in my cookie recipe, since the grocery was out, but I think the cookies were a perfect mix of chocolate and peppermint with just the shavings on top.
Happy last day of 2012!
