This past weekend my husband and I took a little road trip with the kids to visit family in Connecticut. Even though the visit had been scheduled for months, I completely daffed out didn’t bake the cookies I was planning on bringing with us. I remembered this right before going to bed on Friday night. Not very convenient, but at least I could set my alarm and get up earlier than normal to get it done.
I hate showing up empty-handed.
So the alarm went off. I hit the snooze. Once. Twice. Ok, three times.
Yep, no time to bake cookies now.
I also didn’t have time to stand around scooping cookies. I still needed to get myself ready to go, even family couldn’t forgive the level of bed-head I had going on. I only had an hour until we had to hit the road. So I had to MOVE!
Cue the bar.
I whipped these babies up super quick, took a shower while they were baking, put on my makeup and did my hair while they cooled a bit then put them in my little insulated carrier for the trip.
And we were off!
Too bad I left the carrier on the counter.
