This school year has been especially frazzling (I hope I just created a new word there!) for me. I have possibly permanent scars on my face and arms from scratches and bites. My legs have endured (and fully recovered from) innumerable bruises. It’s been a more physical year than usual for me.
And then, there is the physical destruction that seems to be worse this year. This picture was from today when a student dumped hundreds of items on the floor while running around in circles.
Although I know what I should do after a really hard therapy session: take some deep breaths, remember not to take it personally, relax. What I really do is: whine and gripe, text my husband and friends, and long for sweets. As soon as I get home from work and I tell my kids about my day, my daughter know what we need to do. Bake.
Here are a list of my favorite comfort foods after a day like today:
Banana Oat Cookies— no sugar needed so they are a “health food” in my book!
No Bake Cookies— These taste much better to me if they are poured in a big pan and cut up like bars instead of individual cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies— This Crisco recipe makes them light and fluffy!
Thick and Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies— I just made these for the first time. They. are. amazing.
So… how about you?? I’d love to find your your comfort foods so I can add them into my recipe box!
