Last night was much fun. Got out late due to Departmental responsibilities, and of course just as I arrived amjhawk had to leave. Shortly after that, tmseay had to take off. So cba1282zyx, Alex, and I stuck around for an hour or so until I said, "I want cookies."
To which, Mike said, "I have cookie mix. Do you have eggs?" Nope, but Alex did. Where to do this? I have no room-mate, an oven, and food-making stuff. Flash to my place.
Over the next hour, we made amazing, silly cookies: Mike's pre-made sugar cookie mix to which we added chocolate chunks, cashews, brown sugar topping, and honey. Problem is, they took twice as long as prescribed to bake, probably due to their being twice as thick as they should've been and all the toppings and fillings. They turned out more like crunchy cake, but don't laugh: They turned out yummy after, like, an hour of baking!
So, while they were baking, I made cheese-filled pasta that we topped with olive oil and chopped garlic or pasta sauce. Double-yum! Plus we variously had a margarita, rum and coke, and beer. Good music, comfy new couch, and excellent chattin' with friends. Glad we left the bar early!
Much fun. See what you miss by not going out on a Thursday night?
