I hate the rain, but especially loathe it in the fall. Wet + cold + leaves = a day to avoid life, grab some peppermint hot chocolate and stay in bed under the covers watching movies. Or just sleeping, I could handle that.
It's definitely not a day to be stuck in an office staring at Microsoft Word for nine hours with soaked pant legs, a mental reminder to buy rainboots (yet again) and frizzy hair that you shouldn't have even bothered to style. Well, in all honesty my rainy day "hairstyle" consists of pulling my bangs back with bobby pins. Quite the fashionista, I know.
The only good thing that could possibly come out of this craptastic day is a trip to Panera. I need some hearty sandwich & soup in my life.
And these - ever since I saw the recipe this morning I've been dying to get home & make them.
Anything that is a pseudo-dessert & needs ingredients I already have in my kitchen (plus chocolate) sounds amazing in my novice's baker brain.
