Happy Friday! Today I have a really fun recipe to share! I made Cookie Dough Frosted Brownies a while back, but I changed up the recipe a bit this time and they came out even better than before! Last time, I had way too much cookie dough. Now, I know that typically doesn't sound like a problem, but it actually overpowered the brownies and I love my brownies. So this time, I cut the recipe in half and cut out a few other things and it was awesome. I still had plenty cookie dough frosting to cover those brownies, but you got a good balance of brownie and cookie dough in every bite.
In other news, I have also been having one great food week. Last night, I went with my family and Bri to the Little Goat Diner. This place is so good! If you are ever in Chicago and looking for a casual meal that is also incredibly delicious, this is a great place to go. My mom and I split their Springy Veggie Quesidillas and the Chinese Chicken Sandwich. Both items were great and it was one amazing meal. Today, (after a much needed workout and zumba class) I am going to Budacki's Drive-In where I actually LOVE the veggie dogs. Plus, if you really want to splurge, get cheese fries, do it. And then, I am headed to Lizzie McNeill's for some drinks with a few of my teaching buddies. School hasn't even been out for a week and I already miss them like crazy. It should be a great day!
