What to do, What to do

Mid-semester burn out, it plagues me every night. I don’t study unless it is out of last minute panic and sometimes not even then. For example, the other day I was avoiding studying for a French test by watching very mediocre TV shows, but the really sad part was I was watching them on youtube in my bed, episode after mind-numbing episode until I finally snapped. I decided to try the old food reward system. I grabbed my French notebook, marched upstairs and starting making peanut butter cookies. But not just any peanut butter cookies, whole-wheat peanut butter cookies with chunks of dark chocolate. Here was my plan, prepare the dough, study while it chilled in the fridge, prepare the cookies, and study while they baked. This would ensure I got in 67-69 minutes of study time. Well that turned out to be enough time to write all the terms I didn’t to know (just the terms not their definitions) on flashcards. And the cookies were delicious.

Pavlovian Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks

1 stick butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 ¼ cup of whole-wheat flour

1 ¼ cup all purpose flour

Cream the butter and the sugar together with a spoon in a large mixing bowl. This is easier to do when the butter sets out a while to soften. Mix in the butter, and then the eggs and vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients together and then, mix them into the wet ingredients. Let the dough chill for and hour in the fridge. Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes at 375 degrees.
