Compromise

This week's theme is compromise. I am trying to compromise with my camera (see previous post for info). I had this ingenious idea that my video camera can take pictures, and that was going to be the solution to my problems. Only problem was the battery on the cam-corder is dead, and the charger is at my parents house. Ok, I'll compromise...I'll go over to their house and get the charger. Yes, yes, yes! I was so excited on the way home thinking that I had my camera problem all figured out.



Well, I pull out the cam-corder and realize it's the wrong charger. That's just great! As I look around the house trying to get an idea of what else I can use for my pictures I glance at my phone to check the time. Wait a minute! My phone takes pictures! Yes, that's right. It takes pictures I can totally e-mail them to myself and post them on my blog. Problem solved.

Well, turns out that the pictures aren't the best quality, but you know what, at least it's a picture! And that is good enough for me!


Being on the theme of compromise, I decided to "compromise" this week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe a little bit. Rachel of Confession of a Tangerine Tart chose a most fabulous chocolatey cookie. Da-da-da-daaaaaa...Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops!! And might I say, if you like chocolate, this is the cookie for you! The recipe calls for regular Whoppers and Chocolate Chips, which I had to compromise with Reese's Peanut Butter Whoppers and Peanut Butter Chips. I'm an addict for chocolate and PB, and these cookies hit the spot. The chocolate fudigness of the cookies really brought out the nutty PB flavor, and are great dunkers in a glass of cold milk.

Obviously these were a hit with Andy, because I made these cookies in the morning, and by bedtime, this is what my cookie jar looked like.


Bake on Bloggers!

Great job!
From the looks of your cookie jar I think they were a hit!

Pamela said...

The pictures look pretty good to me. And it appears that the cookies were much enjoyed! Great job.

Yours came out darker than mine. They look delish though. I made ice cream sandwiches out of them to balance out the flavors. :D

You rock for getting these pictures in! I used PB Whoppers, too! Don't you LOVE those things? Plus, if you use just the 2 cups called for, and you buy the large carton of Whoppers, and you don't let anyone else in your family know that you didn't use all the Whoppers . . . mm-hmmm! Great idea using the PB chips, too!

You certainly went the extra mile! Great job with the cell phone pix, and those pb whopper cookies sound fab.
