Hey, everyone...ummmm...Happy Monday? Nah...that doesn't sound right at all. Especially after nearly 2 weeks of vacation around these parts (thanks to an added snow day, Scott worked exactly 1 day in the last 16!) So for the sake of TRUTH, let's just call this "&@#$* Monday", shall we??J
I don't have TOO much to report this fine "&@#$* Monday", as I spent both Saturday AND Sunday enjoying 2 nice wonderful "ladies lunches" with friends & family...
Which, after a VERY brief hiatus, meant the RETURN OF HOLIDAY TREATS & SWEETS! I didn't mind, since it really seemed to extend the beautiful season out just a litttttttlllleeee longerJ. But THIS, my friends, is called the LAST HURRAH:
Hahahahahahahaha! I enjoyed it ALL and now I'm ready to REALLLLLLLLLLY get back in the normal swing! Especially since most of my weekend involved not a whole lot of cooking OR working out. I usually find that if I feel GUILTY for missing a workout, that just means I was being lazy. This weekend, however, was ZERO GUILT = JUST WANTED TO RELAX. I'm OK with that.
My only brief time in the kitchen was spent whipping up some chicken & dumplings on Friday to combat the snow...
Trying my hand at Gwyneth Paltrow's 'healthy brownies'. Although I can't really judge em fairly since I had to swap out a few ingredients for what I had around the house (didn't have spelt flour or enough maple syrup, even for my 1/2 recipe), but these were not my favorites, we'll just leave it at that...J
And from healthy to HOLY HELL...Sunday morning brought our attempt at those little Pinterest lovelies known as "Pancake Dippers," where you pour pancake batter right over strips of cooked bacon. All though in this case, Scott just took the liberty and covered 2 strips at one shot...J
They were a BEAR to flip over, but he managed to pull it offJ Do I even need to tell you these were good?? (oh yeah, with the mini chocolate chips tossed in there for good measure??)
So yeah, today will involve a little less cookies and BACON MONSTER PANCAKES and more...well, I already known KALE for sureJ Hope you had a great weekend too and I'll talk to you tomorrow!
