I'm Finishing the Cookie Dough

So I made cookies a few weeks ago, the kind you need cookie cutters for, and you know all that leftover dough that is around the parts where you cut out the cookies? The scraps? Well I balled them all up and wrapped them in parchment paper and stuck the ball back in the fridge thinking I'd cut out some more cookies later when I figured out a good design. Instead I just started picking away at it little by little. I was eating teaspoonfuls every hour for a minute there so I decided to throw it in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer thinking it would get too hard to pick at and that would solve the problem, but do you know what? Now I just pry hunks off with a fork. What are you doing wrong?

I've made about 7-8 dozen sandwich cookies over the last five days for cookie exchanges (that in itself is doing something wrong, never make sandwich cookies for cookie exchanges, because then you're making twice as many fucking cookies and then you have to fill them and sandwich them). And now I'm eating cookie after cookie. I feel like I should put some blue fur on right now.

Yahtzii

@thebestjasmine Hey girl if you want to get rid of those cookies I know this really cool Hairpinner who lives close by . . .

fondue with cheddar

@thebestjasmine I only made sandwich cookies once, and I didn't eat any of them while I was making them. I came home from work to find that my stoned boyfriend and his friend had scarfed down all of them. They were just giggling over an empty plate with crumbs all over their shirts. THEY DIDN'T EVEN APPRECIATE THEM. They probably would have gotten just as much enjoyment out of a $1 package of sugar wafers.

thebestjasmine

@jen325 oooooh, I would have killed them. With fire, even. I made linzer cookies, which are an enormous pain in the ass but oh so impressive looking (pro tip: The Silver Palate cookbook's recipe is the best), and homemade oreos, which were amazing and also easy and I'm making more this week, so if that really cool Hairpinner who lives close by is around she might get lucky...

Yahtzii

@thebestjasmine She's already waiting outside your window!

I mean, she's somewhere a respectful distance away and waiting patiently in a non-creepy way.

fondue with cheddar

@thebestjasmine Oh, I wanted to, but I just yelled at them a lot while they giggled.

Linzer cookies are the best!

packedsuitcase

@jen325 Oh yeah. There would have been fire.

I've made sandwich cookies exactly once. Never again.

insouciantlover

You know how there's this major holiday in a week and all of my free money SHOULD be going toward gifts for other people? Well I keep wanting to spend money on myself. I really need a bunch of new stuff, like, right now. It's on sale! Free shipping!

rayray

@insouciantlover I'm guilty of this! I just bought a new pair of boots off ASOS last night. They'll be delivered on the 29th so I guess even if my christmas presents are a bust I know I've got something awesome coming along?
ETA: They were a third off, so it's not *THAT* bad.

insouciantlover

@rayray I'm wearing the pants that I just HAD to get yesterday. And there's this Tulle jacket on hautelook that I keep putting back in my cart even though it keeps expiring. It's just that all the best sales are this time of year! The temptation is killing me!

rayray

@insouciantlover I KNOW and why do the websites have to email you ALL THE TIME telling you about the sales? I feel like it's rude not to at least check it out.

Es
Es

@rayray I think I've bought more for myself than for anyone else...

insouciantlover

@rayray It is! And of course if they only have a limited amount of mystery boxes filled with $60-$200 worth of nail polish available for only $19.99 with free shipping, well, I'd be a FOOL not to buy one!

rayray

@insouciantlover The number of nail polishes I have bought in recent weeks is truly astonishing.

mangosara

@insouciantlover tell me more!!! I don't have NEARLY enough nail polish.

insouciantlover

@mangosara Ooooh well the site is called julep maven and they have a monthly box of np but this promotion is for their mystery box so you should totally get one!

miwome

@insouciantlover I already SPENT my me money and I have only one more present to buy and it would all be FINE except I left my lovely new boots in the airport two days ago and what if I never get them back. :(

beanie

@insouciantlover I think it's a cruel trick for shopaholics like me for everything amazing and wonderful to be on sale the month when I'm supposed to be buying gifts for others. Unlike the 11 other months when I can just buy for me. Youngest child syndrome?

meganmaria

@insouciantlover I do this ALL the time. It's so sucky. I feel like the worst Christmas shopper, but CUTE NEW THINGS FOR CHEAP!!!

Christina McMc

Jane, have you seen Joy the Baker's recipe for Chocolate Dipped Cookie Dough Balls? I find her blog to be a bit twee occasionally, but I swear, this is the ONLY thing to do with leftover cookie batter. http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2010/06/chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-balls/

As for things I shouldn't do...I looked at my ex boyfriend's Twitter account recently. Boy, was that a mistake.

Emma Peel

@Miss Cay OH MAN. I made those all the time growing up. We would make cookie dough expressly to make them, and use Egg Beaters if we were taking them to school or whatever.

Shorter version: melt chocolate chips and a small hunk of butter. Dip cookie dough in it. Cool. EAT.

Christina McMc

@Emma Peel If it wasn't 10pm here in the UK, I would be making a shitload of cookie dough and dipping those bad boys in chocolate STAT.

packedsuitcase

@Miss Cay If it weren't 10am here in the States and I was at work, I would be at home making these. Holy mother of goodness.

one cow.

I keep adding things to my shopping baskets online, like, "Haha, I'm not going to actually BUY this, I'm just putting it in my basket for fun. And this. And, well, it's actually a pretty good deal once you spend $100 dollars for free shipping & add this coupon code, so I'd probably have to add this, too, haha." And then things arrive at my door a week later.

@one cow. This is exceptionally well fitted to your avitar, btw.

@one cow. Guilty - Sephora, Bumble and bumble, RueLaLa, J Crew - AUGH.

likethestore

I'm going to make chocolate chip pancakes for dinner.

Megasus

@likethestore I don't see this as wrong. It feels so right to me. Also I meant to buy syrup today because I have been craving pancakes (and my last bottle fell out of the fridge and BROKE, even though it was plastic, and also took like 3 weeks to clean up), but I forgot because I never write a shopping list. Also I decided it was a good idea to pick up four packages from the post office(s) in one go.

Hellcat

@Megan Patterson@facebook Oh fucking shit, man -- a syrup spill! I think a syrup spill would cause me to pack up and move. I commend your fortitude and patience with what must have been a grueling cleanup.

itmakesmewonder

I think this is why you have to use up the scraps in real time, Jane.

leonstj

I made like sixty billion truffles this weekend (thank you hairpin ladies! They came out pretty as a motherfucker, as miles would say) and had all of this leftover tempered chocolate, "for making more chocolate covered things in the future - it lasts a long time". And it has gone through the same progression as Jane-dough.

Ugh, I don't even like chocolate that much (yet I made five dozen truffles, because I dunno). I'm more of a berries w/ balsamic and pepper guy.

itmakesmewonder

@leon.saintjean The evidence speaks to the contrary, Leon.

janbrady

@itmakesmewonder But did you make out with Cute Single Girl from Party? Inquiring 'pinners want to know!

wee_ramekin

@janbrady Ooooo! I didn't see the thread where this story must have originated! Updates Leon, updates!

leonstj

@janbrady No luck. The "couples" nature of last years party scared off the single ladies, it seems. There was only one eligible bachelorette, a friend of the group, whose type your humble chocolatier is not. C'est la etc. The truffles were amazing nonetheless.

mabellegueule

@leon.saintjean I would totally make out with you at a party, humble chocolatier!

I can't tell if being a random internet comment makes that sentiment more or less creepy. But I would totally make out with a hairpin-reading, truffle-making, name-almost-rhyming dude (plus previous comments have led me to believe you're cool).

sugarfree

@leon.saintjean I second what @illcommunication just wrote. So, chin up! There's a lady out there who's just waiting for you to say the words "truffles" and "I made them" so she has an excuse to drag you to a sofa and plant a few on your kisser! Only a matter of time!

@elysian fields See also law school.

EpWs

@elysian fields This is true.

EpWs

@elysian fields I am working on my thesis RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND and it is a terrible way to spend your winter break. I feel your pain.

cliuless

@elysian fields my coworkers and i have turned this into our mantra: school ruins your life.

stonefruit

@automaticdoor so atrociously true.

zoe
zoe

@elysian fields et al.. ditto, with looming scheduled thesis progress deadlines, and urgently-needed-proving-of-self after looong absences galavanting around in the field. And yet Hairpin, facebook, cleaning the oven, reading moomin books, baking mookies/cuffins (something between a cookie and a muffin, theyre great!) take odd priority.
And it's not ruinging my winter break, because it's SUMMER here. woe!

EpWs

@zoe About the looming thesis progress deadlines! I have said it to others and I'll say it here: I made an actual, draw-it-out-on-posterboard progress chart with gold star stickers and other incentives on it, and it's helping IMMENSELY with the whole keeping my distracted ass on track. Highly recommended if you're anything like me and need some sort of something to do every day you've written something!

AmyDun

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher I need to know more about this and I want pics. I've been through some crazy town self-imposed/created motivation methods since starting law school but I love me a progress chart that isn't on the computer (that procrastination culprit!)

AmyDun

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Also, reading through the comments, you seem like my procrastinating in grad school but working on it motivation-seeking twin. Neat.

EpWs

@AmyDun Yay, grad school procrastination twinsies! High five.

As far as pictures and such, I'm documenting this whole crazy process on my tumblr. The pictures may be buried a few pages in, but if you hit the grad school tag on any of my recent posts, it should take you to it shortly. Seriously, though, this thing is awesome.

AniaGosia

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher This is totally what I need. Also a grad school support group, I think.

Yahtzii

Oh no, I do not waste cookies. I bake the scraps and then make icing and have a VERY sophisticated dessert take on chips and dip. If you're feeling adventurous, you can make "nachos" with a pile of cookie scraps topped with glaze and little bits of candy. You may say it's undignified, but I don't need standards if I've got cookie nachos.

I'm pretty sure my dentist would qualify this as something I'm doing wrong.

mpdg

@Yahtzii Oh my god this is the best idea ever. Cookie nachossss...

packedsuitcase

@Yahtzii Wrong? But this seems *so right*

laserbeams

@Yahtzii Wow. I have already done tons of Christmas biscuit making this year but I think I need cookie nachos.

teebs

I have been having the same issue. I had cookie dough left over, and thinking I would bake it later, I saved it. Nope! I've been eating it bite by bite. And then last night I mixed some in with strawberry ice cream and it was SO. GOOD.

teebs

@teebs (after the holidays I will be back on my all Kleenex diet. gotta watch my figure, you know)

feartie

I heard about a recipe involving yorkshire pudding batter (basically pancake batter with no sugar) and mincemeat (the sweet kind). Now I must make this. Somehow overcoming the gluten-free corn free hurdle. It will probably be horrendous. But the two separately are so good..argh...

rayray

@feartie Cut out the middle man and eat mincemeat with a spoon. Not that I would ever do that.

Christina McMc

@feartie A few years ago, I made Yorkshire Puddings and filled them vanilla Haagen Daas and Golden Syrup. THEY WERE AMAZING.

feartie

@Miss Cay What?! That's allowed? I - I shouldn't have been told. Strong golden syrup problem means I don't keep it in the house too much any more.

Christina McMc

@feartie You can also cheat and buy the frozen ones from ASDA which cook in two minutes. These are very handy if you're pissed and feeling 'inventive'.

Es
Es

@Miss Cay Oh lord, I'm totally doing this.

propermake

@feartie i'm going to be making that now. i've had mincemeat that i snuck back from england in the cupboard that i've been saving. i bought a lot of bob's red mill gf pancake mix (not sure if it's available in the uk) and now i've been making a ton of yorkshire pudding related dishes. they are serviceable.

formergr

@feartie Try almond flour! I am GF, cornfree, and rice free for the time being due to a medical thing, and just made cookies out of almond flour last night that were amazing!

meganmaria

@formergr Macarons are amazing (though kind of difficult) and totally GF. BraveTart has a great macaron recipe. She even has a recipe for the nut-free set.

Diana

So that article last week about how we should all make sugar cookies? And everybody posted their favorite recipes? Well, one of you posted a link to the Cook's Illustrated Chewy Sugar Cookies recipe, and somebody, I'm not saying who, it could have been anybody really, there's no way to tell, might have made that recipe 5 - that's five - times since then.

bookbike

I bought two pounds of "good" chocolate for making special holiday pecan caramel chocolate treats...something tells me that by xmas i will simply be giving out pecan caramel treats...

Alice Prin

Had a party on Friday. For the past three days have ingested naught but leftover prosciutto, cupcakes, and champagne.

Bad bad bad.

cowboykiller

@Alice Prin Noooo, you mean good good good.

fondue with cheddar

@cowboykiller Right? That sounds like the ideal diet.

insouciantlover

@Alice Prin This combination either means that you're pooping a lot or not pooping at all.

That's what holidays are all about. Pooping and not pooping.

fondue with cheddar

@Alice Prin I could poop or not poop for hours.

insouciantlover

@jen325 and still have things to... not... poop... about?

missvancity

@Alice Prin I had a party on Saturday. I have been eating leftover petit fours and drinking sparkling apple juice ever since. The thought of drinking more champagne after the amount I drank on Saturday is already making me feel dehydrated.

emilylou

@Alice Prin Yep. So many Christmas parties Saturday/yesterday. Diet of 100% champagne, cookie leftovers, cheese, and black coffee. I feel really gross, but at the same time, really good. Also I'm going to yet another holiday cocktail party tonight. I'm gonna try to keep the ball rolling as long as possible.

Hot Doom

@emilylouise You feel gross? No joke, I have been getting butter and sugar sweats if I don't maintain my cookie levels. The scotch and champers are just digestives and the black coffee I have been drinking is mainly just to dip the cookies in.

emilylou

@LolaLaBalc Yeah. My body goes through withdrawals. Last night I was like "UGH SUGAR I AM NEVER EATING YOU AGAIN" then this morning I was like "This healthy banana & oatmeal breakfast is not doing my taste buds justice. Oh, caramel corn at the office!"
then I was like "oh, all the rum balls"
THEN I was like "oh, three peanut butter rice krispy treats"
Also I am washing all of this down with cold coffee I made at 8:30 this morning. Hmmm.

angelinha

@insouciantlover I don't know if this is the first year I've really gone all out with holiday eating and drinking or if my body has finally just caught up with me (that one) but I feel comforted by your comment. So much pooping. Then Pepto Bismol. Now no pooping. And I still want cookies.

Alice Prin

@cowboykiller I felt kind of baller about it in the beginning but now I am starting to think I should eat some vegetables and do a situp or something.

Additionally, it was a birthday party. So every time I open the fridge to see if any broccoli or Fiji magically appeared, there's a slab of cake in there being all "Hey girl *saucy cake wink* LET'S PARTY."

fondue with cheddar

@Alice Prin BREAKFAST. Birthday cake is basically the same as a muffin, right? That means it's 100% okay for breakfast.

packedsuitcase

@Alice Prin That is what a buffet in heaven would taste like.

PistolPackinMama

Wait... there is an implication something is being done wrong here. I don't get it?

I am flirtily texting when I should be seriously grading.

itmakesmewonder

@AnthroK8 I wish I were doing either of those things, or eating cookie dough, or some combination thereof.

The Lady of Shalott

@AnthroK8 I love the sound of flirty texting! Actually that also reminds me that I need to finish grading and send my marks to my boss, so if he ever gets off his lazy ass and marks his own assignments he can give the students their final grades.

Whatever, they don't really care. One of my students emailed me his final assignment with the foreword "I doubt this is even worth handing in. It is without a doubt the worst work I've handed in for any class all semester." Well, thanks, kid! Now I feel really special!

PistolPackinMama

@The Lady of Shalott Weellllll... we'll see if the flirty texting deserves a place in the squuuueal! book or the Reading Between The Texts Archives. Fingers crossed!

beerd

Leftover cookie dough exists? In the history of time?

Wow. I thought cookie cutter scraps were for geometric fractal cookies if they survived that long. Actually, I usually squish together a freehand triceratops. And then eat it before it gets on the cookie sheet, seriously, cookie cutter scraps are lucky to last between visits from the rolling pin, how do you have so much self-control you are insane with a will of steel.

What am I doing wrong? Facebook and hairpin comments up 500%. Gravity of comments down 50%. I'm sorry. I meant only to lurk.

miwome

@beerd Don't be sorry! Others of us are doing that wrong too!

beerd

@miwome Thanks! Enabler.

@beerd I am a pretty terrible enabler. But I'm here to help!

I am 54 words into the chapter I need to write over break. I need to write approximately 5400. Also I have eaten enough candy to supply a Marine base.

@The Lady of Shalott I wrote all my law school essays while watching the Kardashians. So, they are "done" but they might have excessive use of likes.

Nutmeg

I haven't eaten a vegetable in two days. Also, I have had 10 cups of coffee in the last 12 hours.

Nutmeg

@Nutmeg OH also, the only solid food I had to eat yesterday were cookies (I also had a glass of cider for "fruit")

meganmaria

@Nutmeg This makes me feel better about the inappropriate amount of chili cheese dip I had at work yesterday. That shit is my catnip.

Aunty Christ

My final project before I graduate is a self-portrait. I took an old drawing from high school and extended the length of my hair by a few inches. Tah-dah! More time to watch Cheers and shop online.

propermake

@Aunty Christ that's the kind of thinking that is the point of college. congratulations, job done!

miwome

@propermake For real. College: where you go to learn how to get away with not doing stuff, and also how to bullshit. These are the key life skills.

ru_ri

I made fruitcake and doused it in so much rum that there wasn't any rum left to drink, and then talked to my mom on the phone after which RUM WAS NEEDED. And then realized that fruitcake doused in rum has to sit for a while before it tastes good, so there was no instant gratification of any kind. Poor planning.

But one of the cakes broke so I cut it up and made biscotti by slicing it very thin (no rum) and left them in a warm oven, and this morning they were good and I had recovered from the phone call, so I guess it all worked out. Or it will once I get more rum.

RUM!

Oh and I should have bought my sister an Xmess present but I was in the comic store and saw the second volume of Locas (the Love & Rockets bound book) and kind of bought it with the money I should have spent on my sister. So that's pretty bad.

kaleidoscope

@ru_ri Xmess! Officially nominated for word of the year.

ru_ri

@kaleidoscope Yes it somehow makes the whole affair a bit more bearable. (I am such a humbug! But I really prefer New Year's...)

mumble pie

I am glad I had mini-cookie cutters as well as regular sized cookie cutters, because I just kept squishing that leftover dough together and making mini cookies until there was (very nearly) nothing left! And now the boyfriend and I take our cookies to work(s) because it is too many cookies!

viviangirl

Bowl of frosting. In my fridge. Lookin' like a moonscape from all the times I've dipped my bare fingers in to it. Delicious astronomyyyyyy...

Dancercise

This post is tempting me to make cookie dough. Not to make into cookies, but just to eat.

This is what happens when I get sick. The only thing that tastes good to me is sweets. And Annie's Mac and Cheese. But mostly sweets.

hulia

@Dancersize I haven't had a working oven since August. I have made a good half a dozen batches of cookie dough in that time. Sometimes that last step of the cookie baking process just isn't necessary for the cookie eating.

Daria Morgendorffer

@Dancersize Heyyy, I had Annie's mac & cheese and homemade chocolate chip cookies for dinner! It was delicious.

Nutmeg

@Dancersize My mom always has a big batch of cookie dough sitting in the fridge for any-time-cookies (reason 804 she is the best mom evar), but whenever I'm home I have a tendency to just snack on it, to the point that when my mom says, "Who wants me to make some cookies?" there's only enough for 8.

Verity

When I'm alone in the evenings and cooking for myself, I normally get the portion sizes completely wrong and make far too much (usually of macaroni cheese. Mmm). It's fine, I tell myself, I'll have it for lunch tomorrow, and then I end up eating all of it until my stomach is painfully full. Every time! You'd think I would learn.

miwome

@Verity I used to try to do that thing where you cook a lot of something and then eat it for a week, because you don't have time to cook during the week? NO. BAD. VERY BAD. I would eat all of it in a day and a half, tops, and then feel so very terrible and full.

Knows The Spanish Panic

@miwome Every. Damn. Week. I had to start keeping my dinner stuff in the fridge at work because it never lasted longer than 24 hours at home. Granted, at the moment, this just means that I have more room in my fridge for the huge thing of cookies I brought home from the cookie swap. But I also have carrots in there, so it's cool. Cookies and carrots make an acceptable fridge, right?

miwome

@Knows The Spanish Panic There was a solid month my junior year of college where all I had in my part of the fridge was a jar of Dijon and a sixpack of Blue Moon, so I always figure it can only be up from there. Use my standard! It will help you feel better about your fridge!

Hellcat

@miwome There is no learning when it comes to macaroni and cheese.

miwome

@Verity Never.

Ellie

There is SO MUCH FOOD at work and I can't stop eating it. The two weeks before Christmas at my work people sign up to bring in lunch food (and usually baked goods too) every day and customers bring us treats as well. And I closed 6 nights this week and 4 this week so I'm here all the time and cannot stop eating it. I was so thin last week too bc I went to NYC the weekend before last and worked out a ton/didn't eat beforehand so I'd look good while I was there and then while I was there I consumed nothing but cigarettes, alcohol and one brunch. And now I can't stop eating food and I have a wedding to go to on New Year's Eve that I also want to be thin for. Help!

Daria Morgendorffer

@Ellie I don't think this is the "diet tips" forum you're looking for, my dear.

EpWs

I just ate half a round thing of Brie and am now eating almond M&Ms. This might be my dinner. I got no shame.

Hellcat

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Oh, brie... Honestly, I think it might have been the cheese-related posts here that made me stop being a mere gawker and actually register.

pterodactgirl

I made an almond cake this weekend. I only used half the tube of almond paste, and then I ate the other half out of the tube with a spoon as my parents looked on in horror.

contrary

@pterodactgirl UUHGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH, almonds are the best, especially when smashed into paste and/or oil form. When I was a kid my mom used to get very upset because I would take almond oil and RUB IT ALL OVER MY FACE (for the smell!) I was very advanced in DIY skincare.

pterodactgirl

@contrary I am actually contemplating making another cake just so that I will have another half tube of almond paste to eat. I see your ball of cookie dough and do you one better, Jane.

Nutmeg

@pterodactgirl I love almonds but hate almond paste; can anyone explain this to me? My mom made a cake with marzipan in it last time I was home and I tried, but I just couldn't do it.

Lexa Lane

@pterodactgirl I just did a marzipan covering for a fruitcake (my father loves fruitcake, for some reason), and now there's a tennis-ball sized chunk of leftover almond paste in my fridge that I will be eating in bits and pieces for the next couple of days. I thought about pretending that I would do something useful with it...and then realized that was just kidding myself.

miwome

Things I am doing wrong: Not finishing picking out an excerpt of my BA thesis to send to MY OMG IDOL who gave me his email (still don't believe it) a couple days ago and whom I should really email ASAP before he forgets my existence. Like, I am halfway done with this, just do it and send the damn email.

Also, I am not currently making a doctor's appointment, and I am eating gherkins from the jar like...like gummy bears, or something.

EpWs

@miwome DO IT DO IT DO IT. (To everything. But mostly to the send the thesis excerpt to your idol! Do it now! Before Christmas! NOW NOW NOW!) And once you're done, you can enjoy your eating-gherkins-from-the-jar even more. No hate.

Jane Marie

@miwome gherkins from the jar all day, every day.

miwome

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Annnnnd IT IS DONE. Thanks, you actually helped motivate me! And now, to hope he has not decided to forget who I am in the last two days aaahhhhh he is too important to ever talk to me how did this happen. (Professional insecurity, it is a killer.)

@JaneMarie You can have it, just reach out and grab it.

EpWs

@miwome Hooray! Good job! The yelling-style motivation comes from the brilliant mind behind Unfuck Your Habitat, which has successfully made me into a person who puts away her laundry in a timely manner, washes her dishes immediately most of the time, and makes her bed sometimes. It's kind of like Ask A Clean Person, but with more crowdsourced motivation and good-hearted yelling and gifs, and less preternatural cleaning knowledge. (Cornmeal, Jolie??)

EpWs

@miwome Drat, don't know why this posted twice but didn't have the link on this one. If you scroll down to the bottom of the thread, this same comment PLUS a link to UfYH should be there!

miwome

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Oh, never you worry, I googled that ish. And I am now down the rabbit hole, cannot stop. "Good-hearted yelling and gifs" indeed.

AmyDun

@Jane Marie I've never met a pickle I didn't like. All day 'err day indeed.

Hot Doom

I just bought half a pound of rugelach and 10 other assorted cookies. Have been living off of iced pumpkin snickerdoodles (seriously the greatest of great n the world) so I need to introduce protein to my diet, via the walnuts in the rugelach.

Also, Jane, that was a really valiant effort you put in with the freezing of the cookie dough. I think I would have done the same, except I would have frozen the ball of dough just so eating the wad like an apple is easier than picking it apart. Not that I have EVER done that before.

I have been a Hairpin reader for awhile but created an account just now because at the moment I was reading this post, I was eating frozen cookie dough with a fork. I'm glad I'm not alone!

@miwome Hooray! Good job! The yelling-style motivation comes from the brilliant mind behind Unfuck Your Habitat, which has successfully made me into a person who puts away her laundry in a timely manner, washes her dishes immediately most of the time, and makes her bed sometimes. It's kind of like Ask A Clean Person, but with more crowdsourced motivation and good-hearted yelling and gifs, and less preternatural cleaning knowledge. (Cornmeal, Jolie??)

I'm two days into a moderate wallowing bitch-fit because I finished college and quit my job that I hated and now don't know where to live and applications scare me. And I'm at my parents house which is never the oasis I work it up to be in my head, it's just clean and they let me food shop on their credit card. And I love my city but feel like I should try to leave it because my friends are so tight I feel claustrophobic and I idiotically fucked my best one for a while earlier this year and conveniently disregarded how immature he is and now we're all gross and unsure-feelings awkward meh. And I hate myself for feeling that way about my ACTUALLY GREAT LIFE FULL OF OPPORTUNITY AND PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT ME, because I'm a bitch.

I also tried to download a bootleg version of the Sims yesterday so I could forget about these useless nothing problems. I got it for my iPhone instead. It was obviously a letdown but I definitely wasted a couple hours on it at first.

@itiresias The Sims: fulfilling my vision of a life where I have perfect control of every detail since 2001. And oh my is it ever good for warding off the depression.

Latkes. Peeled 2 huge potatoes, added scallions, and watched them fry in a pan of deep oil, and then a couple hours after my bf and I finished eating them (which was plenty each) I ate the leftover crunchy cold latkes (an additional 3-4, practically another meal) and laid in bed reading hairpin.

Also have not exercised in a solid two months. To echo above commenters, fuck laws school.

@AmyDun Correction: the bad thing you did was making me crave latkes and lying in bed.

I made chocolate peanut butter chip cookies, and I had to be physically removed from my own kitchen in order to actually have dough left to form into said cookies. It was a bad scene in there.

Also, I've been doing a lot of eating after 9pm (see above re: chocolate peanut butter chip cookies). But if that's doing it wrong, I don't wanna be right.

I can resist cookie dough. I can even resist freshly baked cookies (barely). But for some reason if a can of condensed milk is open in the fridge, I am there with a spoon. Because just one more little spoonful couldn't hurt....

This is nothing. I'm vegan, so every time I make cookies, as I get closer and closer to the forming cookies/actual baking stage I remember that I could straight-up eat all the dough without any risk of disease. This usually leads to me eating at least a quarter of the dough. I usually excuse it to myself by saying there wasn't even enough room on the baking sheet anyway.
