What time do you wake up in the morning? Are you a morning or a night person?
I am a hard core morning person. You all may think I am crazy after I tell you this, but, to be honest, you wouldn't be the first to call me that! Hey, even Nathan tells me I'm crazy from time to time! :) I wake up at 4:45 Monday through Friday to work out. Anya is usually up a little after 6, so I like to get my workout in before she is up for the day. I am happy to be back to my normal routine. During the first few months of Eric's life, I would work out around 2 or 3 in the morning (yes, even I would call that crazy!) because he nursed so much at night. After those crazy months, 4:45 is wonderful!
And, hey, with all these goodies being baked up in my house, I NEED those workouts! Here are some yummy M&M cookies. I use my big chocolate chip cookie recipe for these and sub red and green M&Ms for the chocolate chips. I heart festive cookies!
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 cup M&Ms
Preheat oven to 325. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Cream butter and sugars; beat in vanilla and eggs. Mix in dry ingredients. Stir in M&Ms. Drop by 1/4 cups on greased cookie sheet at least 3" apart. Bake 15-17 minutes or until edges are lightly toasted.
