The Obvious Choice....and the best 1 minute EVER

Sometimes you just go with the obvious.
As in, hearts for Valentines Day....

bleeding heart shirt, valentine day outfit for mom
When your daytime plans include a Valentine Party for 20 toddlers, heart shirts are the obvious choice. You just go with it and assume the obvious, like, other toddlers will be wearing your same outfit and probably half of the nearby high school and wonder how many Leona Lewis jokes you'll hear in one day.

Then you remember it's cool, you're cool and you're husband is amazing. You remember noticing the oddball outrageous purchase that showed up on the bank account just a few days ago. And, you get all excited for that purchase because it was to Stub Hub. You're so sure that it must be for the two of you since this time of year is not just for Valentines Day but also your wedding anniversary. You count the years married. one, two, three, four. And think yes, we'll be getting a night together and I may finally get to wear that dress purchased back over the holidays. The kind of dress you just can't leave behind but really don't know when or where you'll get to wear it. 

Then it gets better. Your mind escapes to food. ahhhh, simple easy treats like 1 minute cookies in a mug and healthy, sweet treats in simple packaging. You whip it up and sit back.....in all your coolness.

basic recipe used for a warm batch of chocolate cookies cut down to size...of course, melt the butter first.

mix all ingredients (flour last) in the mug. one dish people, that's it. stir well, heat in microwave for 1 minute.

Does it get better than that? Well, maybe. You could drop a scoop of ice cream in there or if you're really in the mood for a sweet treat and cookies aren't your thing...try this one minute to happiness.....

yogurt with chocolate chips, make yogurt taste better


Brilliant. Best 5 minutes spent browsing Pinterest and best 1 minute spent in the kitchen.

So really you don't need the whole box of chocolates, you don't need anyone to gift chocolate to you.
You just need one minute and a spoon. And you can state the obvious in your attire...and get away with it.
At least I think you can...

Love the heart shirt! I have a pink heart graphic sweater from Old Navy that I just wore last night! Guess I maybe should've saved it for tomorrow.
That cookie in a mug looks amazing. I really want to try that tonight now.

Talk about portion control! Ha! I refuse to buy any kind of cookie dough because I WILL make all 24 cookies and I WILL eat as many as I can until I start feeling sick (the magical number seems to be 7... are you embarrassed for me?), and then I WILL hate myself all night because I just ate enough calories for me and everyone else in my apartment complex.

Sooooo... thanks for eliminating that for me! ;) Cookie in a mug.. genius! :)

Niki Caron said...
