Hunting

20120118-100209.jpg
This is Lucky Dog, hunter of thongs, balls and food scraps.

I am currently job hunting. Urgh.

It is a hard balance to look for jobs, find the confidence to talk oneself up and apply for jobs, plan fun ‘I’m free during the day!’ activities, not eat crap and keep the house tidy.

Am trying to make the most of my glorious free time, while:
a) not stressing out.
b) not breaking down.
c) not doing both of the above, resulting in watching Ellen in my underwear, unshowered and eating two minute noodles.

Wish me luck!

Mmmm biscuits …

Today I made amazing peanut butter choc chip biscuits. Gluten and dairy free too! But with eggs. Sorry vegans.

Choc chip peanut butter biscuits
Recipe adapted from the Gluten Free Girl and the Chef. Makes 30.

2 cups peanut butter, I’ve used both smooth or crunchy
1 cup raw sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup dark choc chips

Cream peanut butter and sugar, mix in baking powder and eggs, then fold through the choc chips. Roll into balls, bake at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Leave them on the tray to harden for 5 minutes, then cool on a baking rack. Done! Delicious!
