Currently and Cookie Dough Balls

Currently…

Watching

This month I finished watching Orange is the New Black Season 4 on Netflix.

And I have this to say about it…it started out slow, tackled so many relevant issues, reminded you that these women are indeed in prison, and the finale was so sad.

Reading

Finished reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Began reading For the Love of Money by Omar Tyree and this one has been on my bookshelf forever and I have to admit that I began reading this purely for entertainment purposes.

Listening 

Silence.

The occasional barking dog.

A meowing cat and six kittens. Yes you read that right and even I had to re-read it myself because I cannot believe it. I never considered myself to be a cat person, I still don’t, and I know absolutely nothing about cats. But you see there was a pregnant cat dropped off at my job and I felt sorry for her…so now she is at my house for the moment until the whole cat family can find their forever homes.

Rihanna’s Anti

Making 

Still working on my e-book recipes and making plans to be finished soon.

Feeling 

Meh.

Planning 

The rest of the year since 2016 is more than halfway over already.

cookie dough balls

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1.5 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions: 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium size bowl, spoon in the peanut butter and almond meal and mix until it resembles the consistency of cookie dough.

Add in the salt and fold in the chocolate chips until they are distributed throughout the cookie dough. Take about a tablespoon of the cookie dough and roll it into bite a bite size ball and place on the prepared baking sheet. Continue to roll the dough into balls until you run out. This recipe will make 12 to 15 cookie dough balls depending on the size that you roll them.

Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!

      Yes…a whole lot! I have been questioning how I ended up in this position, but I could not imagine how they would have survived being on the streets much longer. Thank you 🙂

    YUM to the cookie dough balls! Just yum.
    Can we see kitten pictures? I was never a cat person until recently. I kinda despised them. Then we fell in love with a rescue cat. She passed away and I took the kids to the shelter to get a tiny kitten. I’m in love.

    I watched about half of season 4 of OITNB before I stopped. It was too heavy for me, I like it when it’s more light hearted and everyone is getting along. Season 2 was hard to watch too with V. I’m not sure if I’ll continue watching it or not. I want to see what happens, but I just can’t take all the bad energy.
    I want to read Between the World and Me too. And it’s always great to read a juicy novel for entertainment purposes 🙂

      It was a pretty heavy season, but such a reflection of some of the problems happening today. I get why you stopped watching though. Between the World and Me is a must read and its a short easy read as well…be sure to check it out!
