I came across something today that I needed to share. I will say right off the bat that I am having mixed emotions about this. A part of me wants to dive in and try, and a part of me feels that something I dearly love has been violated.
Go check out this recipe:
Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Cookies
It's just a cookie. I shouldn't devote so many thoughts to it really. But I have been evaluating it in my mind all day. I saw this recipe this morning. I then went to work. And I thought about it all day. I'm torn. Torn, I tell you. I love Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. I. LOVE. THEM. So when I saw a cookie that featured them, I thought I had hit the cookie jackpot and the Reese's Peanut Butter Egg jackpot at the same time. But then as the day went on, I realized that this cookie is taking a big risk. Chopping up all those beautiful works of chocolate/peanut butter perfection is a risk. What if the cookies disappoint? Then you've wasted perfection. And why mess with perfection?? But what if they just take perfection to a new level? What if they are something that has been missing from my life and I don't even know it?
I just don't know. I do know that a girl can only contemplate such a weighted issue for so long before taking action. If I can go down a wild water slide at practically break-neck speed, then certainly I can take a risk on a cookie. But on the other hand, I watched "the angry lady" while I was on the treadmill earlier this week, and she talked about never making a major decision when you are feeling emotional, either really high or really low. And thinking about the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs is all it takes to make my emotions go really high. And thinking of chopping them up and possibly ruining them makes my emotions go really low. What a quandary.
Anyone out there want to take one for the team and give them a try for me? And by "the team" I do mean me. In the meantime, I'm going to hop on my treadmill and run out my vacillating emotions. Maybe in about 45 minutes I'll have my answer.
