Seriously; Mark started back to training this week, so we had to bake and eat one last cake before we got back to "serious" Tuesday at 3pm (practice time).
While Mark is on vacation from his job each summer (usually sometime in August or September after his big taper meet) we both let ourselves go. Cookies, cake, and ice cream are on the menu. Other vacation menu items include hamburgers and french fries. Do these things make either of us feel good? Absolutely not. "Aren't you always aloud to eat what you want?" Sure, but when I am cooking for or eating with an everyday Olympian, I, too, eat as though I am a lean, mean, swimming machine.
Mark loves chocolate chip cookies. I think if he had to choose his favorite dessert, chocolate chip cookies would be it. So, in the last two weeks I managed to make only batch of cookies. However, because Mark (self proclaimed) can eat an entire batch in one night, I only made about 7 cookies at one time an froze the rest of the dough. Brilliant, right? You're welcome to call me Martha, Betty, or some other domestic diva of your choice.
