The day before last, I blogged about the detrimental effects of trying on a swimsuit.
However, due to the catastrophic results of said endeavor, today I’ve decided to assume a laissez-faire attitude and say, “To hell with it all.”
I’ve also decided it’s time I practice some well deserved self-indulgence.
But it’s been so long, I’m afraid I’ve forgotten what indulging is all about.
As I dwell on possibilities, I smile as part of me wishes it were as simple as pulling a “Carrie Bradshaw.”
Because if this were the case, self-indulgence would simply mean purchasing a pair of Manolos.
Yet I realize how unlikely this option is for the following reasons:
1) I don’t have the cash that Manolo wants for his “creations” and last time I checked, it’s illegal to sell a kidney on Ebay.
2) The last time I wore a pair of heels was to my prom, which more than likely means I won’t remember how to walk in a pair of Manolos if I wanted to.
3) There are cobblestone streets that stretch out to a ten-mile perimeter of where my home is located, which increases the possibilities that at least one of the Manolos will meet its untimely death before making it to the first block.
4) I’m certain the places I frequent will find it less strange to see me wearing a bathing suit to their establishment than a pair of Manolos.
5) Pajama pants + Manolos? Need I say more?
6) Manolos are drastically overrated; after all, they’re just shoes.
Yes people, you read correctly. They’re just shoes.
All this considered, I had to find another way to indulge.
That’s when I came across the recipe that produces these babies.
Now these are not your average, flat, run of the mill, chocolate chip cookies.
These are the “mother” of chocolate chip cookies.
They are moist, decadent, chunky, and above all, allow you to indulge.
Because what’s life if you can’t indulge, in moderation, from time to time?
So today, if you feel a “to hell with it” attitude coming on, if you’re ready to indulge your sweet tooth, and could give a rat’s ass about Manolo or his shoes, then by all means, mix up a batch of these.
You can find the recipe at Judy’s Kitchen.
