Angry Zucchini Cookies

Hi eaters!

I’m exhausted to no end.

Over the last two days I’ve gone from living it up like a single lady on summer vacation to trying to balance classes, homework, work, being a girlfriend, working out, all my awesomeness, and the normal things that are necessary to sustain life.

I got 5 hours of sleep last night and have been up for 18 hours without a break.

Can “stressed” even begin to cover it?

Yeah…

So today when I came home for what should have been a three hour break full of a Zone-balanced lunch and baking some Beyond Bitchtastic Brownies only to find that we didn’t have ANY protein or cocoa powder, I threw a bit of a tantrum.

I yelled and slammed cabinets and didn’t cry. (Luckily, no one was there to witness this lovely display of adult-ness.)

Once I was done acting like a spoiled toddler (which was ironic behavior for the first day of my senior year of college), I decided to get proactive.

I hand grated my anger away.

I dirtied a lot of dishes without regards to the fact that I would have to wash them.

This wasn't even all of them.

I ate cookie dough while watching “Workaholics.”

Two spoons means I was double-fisting cookie dough.

I realized that I over worked the flour and forgot the vanilla.

Vanilla is for bitches.

I decided that I really didn’t give a damn anymore.

(Yeah, I’d crossed over the threshold from thinking I could still make the day wonderful and productive to just wanting to make it till the end.)

I ate a bunch of cookies* without regard to Zone blocks or imperfections.

Thank-you, Mama Pea.

These cookies didn’t make the day sunny and wonderful, nor did they magically give me an extra couple of hours of sleep, and they also didn’t get me off work early or out of homework, but Leon did wash the dishes and for once I wasn’t eating the chocolate chips straight out of the bag. So really, things were looking up.

Not to mention that they used an entire zucchini, which is good considering that Leon came home with what looks like a lifetimes supply of zucchini and summer squash.

Get ready for an endless stream of zucchini recipes. (And hopefully far fewer of these “I’m stressed and cranky and bitter” posts.)

Your turn, eaters:

How do you handle stress? I’d love some tips.

What’s a funny 22-minute sitcom on Netflix that I can watch next? I’m done with 30 Rock, the Office, Workaholics, and Scrubs.

G’night eaters!

*FIY — I made these with whole wheat pastry flour, a chia egg (1 T chia seeds + 2 T water), 1/4 c Earth Balance and 1/4 c coconut oil, and ~3 T sugar. And they are AWESOME.
