Well, it’s official. I, and all of my former coworkers, have been laid off from the bakery, and I’m filing for unemployment for the first time since the dot-com bust. 😐
So much is changing so quickly around the world right now, and I find myself constantly shaking my head in utter disbelief all the time. 🤦 I just… I can’t… Words can’t… It’s surreal, isn’t it? Does not compute.
I know that millions of people are in a similar situation. I’ve been reminding myself to be grateful for what I have, and in this case, grateful for the extra time to spend with El Hub and Connor.
Still, I can’t pretend that my heart doesn’t feel heavy. It does. 🙁
To keep my spirit up, I’ve been baking, like, A LOT.
In the midst of all the whisking, weighing and rolling, I finally found a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe I don’t totally hate (hey, man, it’s harder than you think). After many, many failed attempts, I think I found a winner! 🍪🏆👍
These are slightly crunchy around the edge but soft and chewy inside.
