Root Beer Float anyone? I've been wanting to bake root beer float cookies for a long time. Why? Because I bought a cool root beer extract to add to them! So not only were these really fun to make, but just stand next to them and you have childhood memories of yummy root beer floats. They smell SO delicious!
Nick and I shared a cookie to do a taste test together and YUMMMMM! This was definitely a successful project. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
It has not been sunny California here all week long since it's been raining and even hailing. Tomorrow we are finally supposed to have a break from all the rain. I was invited from friends to join them on a 100-mile bicycle ride. That would be my longest ride so far in 2011. I've been a bit paranoid as it includes some hard hills, including one hill that is 11-miles long and a pain even when I've been at my strongest. With the bad weather and cold we've had, my strength and endurance are not up to par. Well it's still raining here. A couple of us decided that even if it doesn't rain tomorrow, the roads will be wet and dangerous for those long descents. So I'll be doing some more baking tomorrow. I have another fun project in the works... stay tuned!
