Oh no. I wanted to go for a quick roller-skating adventure today after work, but this silly, wishy-washy Ohio weather totally messed up my plans. Oh well. If there’s a will, there’s a way, right? I believe there are always alternatives for someone who wants to move.
So I’m actually on the elliptical right now, typing away!
Yeah. Working with little ones definitely prepares you for multitasking.
Last night we had a big, innovative Cookie Operation going on in our kitchen!
We made 3 things: a big mess, a pile of spicy peanut butter oatmeal cookies (for TS) and a batch of brownies for my classmates tonight.
Now, I know, you’re probably wondering what’s so innovative and ground-breaking about making some traditional, average-looking, plain ol’ cookies?
No, no. no my Friend! You don’t understand. These were not jut some ordinary cookies, BUT cookies made by The Squarehead!!!! Because for the 1st time in history HE (not me!) was in charge of the kitchen operation last night!!
Halleluia!!!! Finally the time has come for me to leave the stage and let him shiiiine!! ✸
And guess what? Special bonus: the kitchen didn’t catch on fire, nobody got injured and the cookies turned out AWESOME!!
I can’t tell you how proud I am of him!!! He’s definitely a hero! MY HERO!!
By the way, penny for your thoughts! Why do you think men feel intimidated by kitchen duties so often? What do you do to help your man shine in the kitchen?
I almost gotta run to class, so here is a quicky “menu” of my eats today:
Meal #1: Whole grain bran flakes with low-fat cottage cheese, topped with strawberry jam, sliced peaches and chia seeds. And coffee. Duuh Snackie: A small bowl of fruits
Meal #2: Homemade whole wheat pita bread, loaded with a spiced-up, grilled scrambled egg and TONS of veggies. Soooooo good!
Meal #3: Onion-flax flatbread (made in my new dehydrator last night)….
with Tofutti soy cream cheese…
…and some nutritious veggies. I highly recommend the cream cheese-red pepper-olives combination! Honestly, it really, really tasted like more!
But self-control, right? As the famous Julia Child said: “Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health.” And she was right!
Everything with moderation. Even exercise. So, it’s time for me to jump off this squeaky Iron Beast that I love so much and get some things done before school.
Hope you’re staying healthy!
