That title is literal, I opened my day with some baking!
I didn’t get to taste the finished product at 8am, but you can bet that I licked those beaters, raw eggs be damned.
I also had an onion bagel with strawberry jelly.
Try that combo sometime, you won’t regret it.
School was not as sweet; my test was basically a disaster. I knew a whole lot of material that wasn’t on the test, and a whole lot of nothing about what the questions were asking. The class is with my favorite teacher whose previous tests (in two other classes) I all scored a 100% on so it was extra disappointing.
Thankfully the test at least meant we were done early, giving me time to work on a group project and go to the gym. My CT10k workout for today was 12 sets of 2:30 walking / 2:30 running. 5 miles in 60 minutes. When I was done on the treadmill I did some strength and stretch moves on the mat too.
I drank half of this lemon-lime G2 while I was running.
And when I got home I finally got to try those blondies.
I made Malted Heath Bar Toffee Blondies; swoon. They are chewy and fantastic but you’ll have to take my word for it because the recipe was cobbled together from a few sources and wasn’t changed enough to be sharable.
I ate 1.5 and then made myself stop so I’d still be hungry for a real lunch.
Though I did get another bowl to lick.
I wasn’t done baking, oh no; can you guess what I made next?
Two Ingredient Ice Cream from Cookies and Cups to fold my malted heath bar toffee blondies into. I used half light cream and low-fat sweetened condensed milk so I’ll have to let you know how it turns out. The ‘cream needs 4 more hours in the freezer and I’ll be waiting with bated breath.
In the meantime I made a small green salad.
Baby spinach topped with 1 Tbsp each raisins, groats, and peanut sauce.
Plus I had a bowl of leftover linguine, turnip greens, and mushroom umami pasta sauce with a drizzle of evoo.
I think that set of leftovers was technically the husband’s, but it tasted too good for me to feel bad.
I need to buckle down for a few solid hours of work this afternoon and then I’ve got a fun weekend ahead. Tonight I’m going with a group of friends to see a dance performance at UB, tomorrow Adam and I are making a day trip to Toronto, and Sunday I’m having lunch with a dearly missed friend who’s back in town for a visit. Wheee!
Anything exciting on the agenda for your weekend?
