CheeseCake Macadamia White Chocolate Chip Cookies




Did you ever notice the following things...

Did you ever notice that whenever you go to place something dirty in the dishwasher it always needs to be emptied?  Why is this?  Why oh why can't I just one time show up to the dishwasher without having to unload that darn thing.  And people who don't have a dishwasher, this should just go to show you that once you have one you will just have a new thing you hate to do, and find all too time consuming.





Speaking of unloading the dishwasher, did you ever notice there is always another pile of laundry waiting for it's turn in the washer.  Not only that, did you ever notice there is always a load in the dryer...or perhaps it's been there for days and has been re-fluffed about 5 times in hopes that you would finally bring it upstairs to fold? 

Did you ever notice that as soon as your child lays down for a nap one of the following things happens - Neighbors dog starts the symphony of neighborhood dog barking, someone decides to saw wood next door, your parakeet makes friends with outside free birds and they decide to sing love songs to each other.

Did you ever notice that cookies taste yummy?

Mmmm delish flavours! I wish I could eat one right now!
And I do notice all of those things. Just today in fact: Full dishwasher, washer and dryer. Oh and I love it when people start shoveling their driveways at naptime. Awesome. ;)

Oh, this is so my life right now...the dishes, the laundry and nap time. Seems like I can never catch a break! Cookies do taste yummy though and white chip macadamia nut are one of my absolute favorite. I bet they are yummy with the hint of cheesecake flavor!
