Eat a Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookie and Do Nothing Monday

Im going to start a revolution. It’s going to be amazing and you’re going to want a piece of it. I have a vision of thousands, no hundreds of thousands marching with me for my goal. It will blow your mind. It will change the world.

I bet you can’t wait to hear what it is.

Do Nothing Monday.

That’s right. Do Nothing Monday. See, the weekend is great, but you end up burning whatever free time you don’t have to be in the office doing family events, catching up with friends, grocery shopping, shopping in general, cleaning, laundry… ugh…

That’s why I started the Do Nothing Monday. It’s my day. Mine. Yeah, I’m selfish. But on Monday, Handsome is back to work and it’s my day to wake up fresh and rejuvenated knowing I get to knock the things the list that I want to get to knocking.

I usually spend the day working on websites, cooking and dancing about the kitchen to my own speed.

I suggest you try it too and join me in my Do Nothing Monday revolution.

Viva la resistance!



  1. I second this excellent motion. Now I just need to get my boss on board…
    Also, love the vanilla pudding-in-cookies idea! Nom!

  2. Count me in! As long as I can have a tasty treat to go with my do-nothing mondays! These looks lovely!

    I SO wish that I could have do-nothing Mondays! If I didn’t have to be at work I would totally participate in that. I am needing it today too!

  4. these look fantastic. pudding in cookies sounds like a winner to me!

    Do nothing monday sounds like a great plan :)

  5. I wish my boss would agree to Do Nothing Monday! These cookies look fantastic!

  6. Cool idea of using pudding in the cookie recipe. And I’d love to join your revolution of Do Nothing Monday. Unfortunately I’m at work and already broke the rule — maybe next week?

  7. I have Mondays off (but I work very hard over the weekend!) and eating cookies and doing nothing sounds like the perfect way to spend it… now, if only I could get my very active toddler to cooperate!

  8. Love'nBake says:

    These are best with chocolate pudding, ghittard milk chocolate chips and scooped with the pampered chef cookie scoop. Yum!

  9. That sounds perfect. I’m on board with your plan, especially if you give me a cookie! :)

  10. Do nothing monday is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time…as are these cookies!

  11. mrsfoley says:

    i love to do nothing / nothing is what i do / if i didnt do nothing how would nothing ever get done / smile

  12. I have a friend who raves about these cookies…so happy to have the recipe! I like your do nothing Monday idea…it may be a continuance from my do nothing Sunday :)

  13. I’ve always been a sucker for a good chocolate chip cookie and your’s look fabby. I also like the idea of Do Nothing Mondays… if I could only swing that!
    In fact, I’ll put that right up on the shelf with my other new discovery: Stay off the computer Sundays! (Haven’t quite managed that one either….!)

  14. I wish I could join your revolution. I can go for some of those cookies though!

  15. I so wish I could join the do nothing monday movement too but I guess I will just have to cheer myself up with these cookies!

  16. I love this ‘do nothing monday’ idea!! it’s so true… you do so much catching up during the weekend that by the end you realize that you didn’t get to relax… I’m with you, Kita…sign me up!! And bring a batch of that yumminess up there with you! K? Thanks. :))

  17. I’m ready to join the cause! Do Nothing Monday! DNM! LOL I’ve never heard of cookies with pudding in it, I’m imagining them like way better Soft Batch cookies by the look of your pictures. Can’t wait to try this.

  18. oh, how I wish i have at least one do nothing Monday. oh, how happy I’d be. (usually Wednesday is my day to put the feet up and relax a bit)

    the cookies sound great. thanks for sharing Kita

  19. Oh, I would so love a Do Nothing Monday. Can those be acquired? Send one my way! :)

  20. I just started to make these, when do you put in the sour cream/yogurt, after the vanilla? Thanks!
