Then I rolled the dough out between two sheets of plastic wrap, and attempted to cut them into baby gingerbread men. However, the dough was being stubborn, so I had to resort to making giant gingerbread men. I popped them in the dehydrator for probably 8 or so hours, and the cookies came out chewy and delicious, though a bit too chewy from the chia seeds. But they were a success! I loved to see how the dough turned out; it was almost like real, non-raw cookie dough! Beautiful.

Uh-oh...this guy was a little angry.
Tonight I went out to dinner with my aunt to celebrate my birthday (which is really Tuesday). I had a beautiful poached pear salad with walnuts, mixed spring greens, and mandarin oranges. I skipped out on the bleu cheese and had the Thai vinaigrette on the side. Delicious! I would have taken a picture, but the lighting was horrible. Yum, yum, yum. I want to eat that salad again! I would have had some of the vegetable du jour, but it was green beans, and I get kind of picky about how they cook them. Most of the time they're either limp or too oily. So I took a pass. I'd much rather have broccoli instead, haha.
Have a good night and start to your week!
