I went to sleep lastnight knowing that something just wasn’t right. My throat was a little itchy and my chest was a wee bit tighter than usual…but I played it off as just being out in the cold lastnight when I went to Panera. Nope, wrong. Woke up this morning wanting to immediately rip a hole in my neck and pull my throat and most of my innerds out. Gross, but totally true and definitely unappetizing, making breakfast a little hard to stomach, but I did. Luckily when I get sick I rarely lose my appetite. Or maybe I just love food.
Anyway, being sick – in my opinion – is the perfect excuse to sit on my bumdiggity all day. You bet I did, too. In between experimenting more with my almond flour and frequent trips to empty my hot-tea infused bladder, I was smack-dab on my booty. I also made a new bestfriend. Meet Tylenol – and as I tweeted earlier…I’m 21 years old and had SUCH difficulty getting that damn child lock off of it to open it. I rule.
So, enough grossing ya’ll out, let’s talk almond flour. I found a sweet recipe for almond flour SUGAR COOKIES! What a perfect recipe for the holidays, right? I adapted the recipe a bit for the ingredients I had on hand and I’m so pleased to say that they turned out perfectly. Also, no worries, I washed my hands frequently and didn’t get any germies on the cookies. I’ll be devouring them all anyway, most likely, so it’s not like it matters. Read on!
