Right, so two posts in one day. Basically, it’s a long episode of The Bachelorette, and Tyler is playing video games. Soooo yeahhhhh…
Just two things I NEED to share. Number one: The workout I did today. Consider this your Monday Moves post for the week. It was a great mix of strength and cardio and I was super sweaty and ready to hit the showers by the end. (Note: I completed the workout nearly 3 hours ago and I have yet to shower. Cue the gross factor.)
Number two: The cookies I baked today. I don’t know why I never thought of making these before, but DAYY-UMM they are yummy. I almost didn’t want to share, but realized I probably should since it would be rude to tell you about them, but not tell you how to make them and be all Cookie Monster-esque like me:
K, onto the stuff. Might as well give you the workout first.
I did this workout with a 5 minute warmup on the row machine, 20 min spin after Circuit 1, and 15 minute run after circuit 2. I would have completed extra cardio after the third circuit, but I had already made a trip to the dog park earlier in the day AND I needed to get to the grocery store for dinner stuff before Tyler got home. There’s my excuse. Still a great workout, though!
Browned-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3/4 c butter
- 1/4 c sugar
- 3/4 c bown sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 2 c flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- dash salt
- 1 c chocolate chips
Here’s what you do:
1. Place the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Continuously stir for several minutes until butter bubbles, then begins turning light brown.
2. Immediately place the browned butter in a mixer (or bowl if using hand mixer) and cream with both sugars.
3. Once they are fully incorporated, add the egg and vanilla.
4. Then add flour, soda and salt and mix until just incorporated.
5. Hand fold in the chocolate chips.
6. Place mixture in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 and prepare baking pans. After 30 minutes and once oven is ready, spoon blobs of the dough onto the baking sheets and bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft to touch upon taking out of the oven, so allow them to cool on cookie pans for 5-10 minutes before moving to wire racks.
