Online Bake sale

I have a couple of things to tell you about today.  This is our big weekend day; Jordan and I want to have some fun.  First things first...Breakfast




Normally, we don't go all out for breakfast but I was straving this morning and decided pancakes would hit the spot.  All of this was done before Jordan crawled out of bed at 7am.  I think the smell got to him.  I topped my with nutella, bananas, and some coconut butter.  It was SOOOO GOOD!

Announcement: My friend Kari from Jogging with Fiction is running this year for charity.  Each month she also intends to do a little some thing special to help with the fundraising efforts.  February is fast approaching and the fundraiser is a BAKE SALE!  This being right up my alley, I wanted to give you the heads up.  On February 5th, Kari will post all of the items up for bid.  The minimum bid will be $10.  For this you can choose 2 dozen cookies, breads, granola, bars, and all sorts of other baked treats.  For a sampling look here.  At the end of the day if you have the highest bid you will have 24 hours to pay via PayPal.  The bakers will then be notified and will send off the treats within 3 days.  How sweet is that?  And right before Valentine's Day.  I am still debating what I will make.  At first I was going to do 1 dozen oatmeal butterscotch cookies, and 1 dozen double chocolate cherry cookies.  Then I found a recipe for Momofuko's milk bar compost cookies.   These things are divine. They mix normal sweet cookie fillings with salty pretzel and potato chip combos.  Yes, potato chips in cookies.   I might just have to try out this recipe this weekend and then switch out my submission.

I am hoping to take a trip to Trader Joe's today to stock up on my stables of nuts, coffee, and nut butters that I so love at Trader Joe's.  I also really want to go to Whole Foods.  I got a gift card from my parents and cannot wait to go splurge on yummy food.  Can anyone say cheese, please?
