I’m really into dried figs right now. They remind me of when I was younger and ate the sh*t out of Fig Newtons. Holy balls those lil’ cookies of happiness really got me going. I could easily eat a whole box of those. Who am I kidding, I could STILL eat a whole box. The seeds give a little crunch to a soft cookie and make life wonderful. People who don’t like Fig Newtons know nothing. But if you don’t like the cookie version….how about the dried fruit version? Stupid good.
Anywho, I’m talking so much about cookies BECAUSE there are literally 9 DOZEN cookies sitting on top of my microwave on the counter. No, they are not paleo. Yes, they are pure sugar and flour. And yes, they make me drool everytime I walk by them. And think about how many times I walk through the kitchen in one day…holy crap…that’s a lot of drooling. Mopping the floor is easy, I guess. Terrible joke. But seriously, these cookies never leave. That’s probably because my roommates are extremely thin and have something called self control. I have self control in the fact that I just make paleo desserts instead. Or consume mass amounts of dried figs. Or pecan coconut butter. Sh*t that stuff is good. Just you wait. JUST YOU WAIT.
You know what’s weird? Old Navy commercials. Really weird.
