Alright, so I actually came back on the 10th, and I did intend to write a post that day, but people. I got sick. Stuffy nose, congested head, sore throat, aching stomach, that whole thing. I haven’t been sick in about a year, so when I got sick right before my trip I decided to fight and pretend that I wasn’t actually sick, which eventually culminated in my leaving work early today to rest from the sickness that I have been ignoring. Oof. I’m glad we covered that but now let’s get to the good stuff like traveling and food.
Right now I am sitting outside gate B6, waiting to board my flight to Charlotte, North Carolina. I will be going down there with my bestest friend Allison. She is in school right now for air traffic control and is considering working at the tower in Charlotte, so we are staying with one of her mama’s friends for a week to check out the area.
This recipe comes to us on a bittersweet note. On the same day that this recipe was established and the photos were taken, my great grandfather passed away. I have not felt up to posting about how delicious and wonderful and magnificent these cookies are for the last couple of days, so I have waited.
