Have a Guinness Day!!!!!

No, I am not an alcoholic and I don't even drink Guinness but when I found this cookie recipe on Have Cake, Will Travel called Double Chocolate Stout Cookies, it was all over. My mouth watered. Celine, these are so awesome! Mine aren't as pretty as yours but they were so delicious! I can't wait to share with the people at work tommorow!!!

I told the people at work about these so doubled the recipe. I knew that I would have a considerable amount of beer left over so I am also making a Seitan and Guinness Stew Dark Beer Stew

Today was my day off so as per my custom, I stopped at SHEETZ for a diet soda to drink while I was at the park and I decided to pick up the Guinness for the cookies (and the Seitan Guinness Stew). As I approached the cash register I realized that I must look like an alcoholic as the cashier raised her eyebrow at me as she rang up my purchase. It was 9:30 in the morning :D Hehehe. But I digress, here are the photos...... BTW, I used the seitan recipe from Post Punk Kitchen,

Homemade Seitan

it is so good and so easy to make, I highly recommend it. The stew is very earthy, you can definately taste the Guinness in it, not sure if I would be making it again. But it was worth the $3.00 for the Guinness for these wonderful cookies!!!!!

No, I didn't let my cat have Guinness but this is a funny photo!!!!! He likes sleeping in this Airwalk box for some reason and I even have a bed for him. Go figure, LOL :P

*blushes* Thank you very much! I find that they (the cookies) are even better the next day, more pronounced Guinness taste.
