TWD Goodies

I have been overloaded at work for a while and haven’t had the energy to blog posts on the TWD goodies that I was able to fit in (which weren’t many). I made the coffee espresso shortbread cookies but can’t seem to find my pictures. So please forgive me TWD Bakers for not visiting and commenting. I believe I see the light at the end of the tunnel at work, which could be the end of this month…
My typical day at work begins with waking up at 3:30am (or 3am if I have to wash my hair), getting out of the house by 4:30 (or 4am), commuting 87 miles to work in Rancho Bernardo, working 9 regular hours (we’re on the 9/80 work schedule), working an additional 1-4 hours depending on what needs to be done that day, coming home, taking care of the puppy (poor Marshall, stuck at home while I’m away for at least 12 hours a day), taking care of me, going to bed by 9, 9:30 and repeat. I am very grateful to be gainfully employed – especially after having been laid off last year, it’s just that it gets to be very tiring – but like I said, I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Well, enough complaining, here are some pictures for your enjoyment. HAH!
I found the shortbread pictures!

Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies - They didn't exactly turn out nice and square...

But that's okay, I ate them anyways and loved them!

Coffee Break Muffins with Bittersweet Chocolate

I didn't get 12 'evenly' portioned muffins...

Peanut Butter Criss-Cross Cookies

These were a favorite of everyone!


Breakfast Oatmeal Bread

Fresh sliced bread.

Streusel topping needs a little more nuts...
