Today I had surgery, and as a result, I am fairly immobile for the next several days. Two positive things result from this. First, I got a super-cool ice pack that ties around my abdomen and is reminiscent of the fanny-pack days of the beloved 80’s, so at least I can recover in style. And second, I can have a few legitimate days off from work!

The best cure in my opinion for post-surgery discomfort is…COOKIES! That’s right, cookies. After a long afternoon of napping I decided to make peanut butter cookies from a recipe I found in my mom’s recipe box a while ago. I liked these very much.
