Election Night Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last night I spent the evening glued to the TV set watching the results of the election roll in. I can't say there were any surprises in the results, but I have always enjoyed politics regardless of who wins the election, and find the political coverage interesting. I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies (from scratch of course) as comfort food while watching political history being made. Here is the dish full of cookies I baked while watching the coverage on NBC.

It was an historic evening with the world watching democracy at work. The best part of the evening was snuggling up with Sheldon, Koshimi, Owen and my plate of fresh baked, warm chocolate chip cookies.

Haha, ironic. We also made chocolate chip cookies and watched the results as they unfolded. I think it should become tradition!

They look super duper yummy! I was going to make cupcakes yesterday but never ended up getting there. Today I'm so excited and the people at work are energized-I should have done it.

Wasn't it just a fabulous election? Now the hard part begins, but the election itself was a refreshing change. I was so moved by the spirit of our country and how everyone really seemed to step up and put aside petty differences to act in a positive way. I tried to stay awake to see the outcome, but I crashed. (Maybe I should have had some cookies) ;)
