Remember those delicious coconut banana muffins I previously stated were all gone? Well I had forgotten I slipped a couple away before the wolves (aka my family) descended and froze them! Hurray for pre-planning!! I snuck one out yesterday morning and topped it with a little PB&Co.
These will be made again. Soon. Possibly tomorrow. More likely tonight.
Dinner last night was an Italian Grandma special: Funghetti!
It's definitely in my top five favorite pasta dishes. Funghetti, for those who may not know, is mushrooms in an aioli sauce over pasta. Really simple and quick to make, it's basically a mixture of olive oil, mushrooms, spices and pasta topped with romano cheese. I could throw in an exact recipe if anyone wants it, just let me know!
After dinner, I began a project I've been putting off for a while: Blog Renovation. Of course, a headache quickly followed. Apparently I'm not very cPanel savy. To relieve my blogger woes, I decided to make a batch of these Fudge Babies I've heard so much about.
I wasn't exaclty sure if I'd like them or not, so I halved the recipe and made eight different varieties. I give to you: My Little (Fudge) Babies!
Aren't they just the cutest?! I made two of each kind: original, cocoa dusted, smores (with a mini marshmallow inside and rolled in graham cracker crumbs), chocolate chip, peanut butter, peanut butter glazed, and sugared. I haven't tried them all yet, but I can admit that I like them more than I thought I would. I'm not really a date kind of girl (I'm the marrying kind haaaa), but these were pretty tasty. Thanks Katie!
Cut to today - I really didn't know what I wanted for breakfast and I spent some time last night thinking about it before I fell asleep (tell me I'm not the only one who dreams about breakfast!) when it hit me. Cereal. I know it seems like a Duh! kind of statement, but I realized that I spend so much time making pancakes, oatmeal, overnight oats, omelets, scones - that I've basically forgotten the classic!
Of course, I had to decide I wanted cereal the day I ran out of almond milk. I had about 1/4 cup left so I threw that in there on top of some Three Sisters Honey Oaties, chia seeds, half of a banana and a scoop of White Chocolate Wonderful. A pretty satisfying meal if I do say so myself.
Consider my running rut officially ovahh! On Saturday, I ran my five miles in 52:10. Way slower than my PR, but hey, I'm getting it done baby. No complaints here. In an effort to get organized, I've decided to start planning and posting my weekly workout schedules. That's prime time dedication for this chick, believe it!
Not too shabby. I don't know though, I feel weird doing only strength training on certain days. I'm a heart pumping cardio junkie! Maybe I should throw some cross training in there?
In Urbanathlon news - you probably all thought I dropped it, didn't you!? - they finally put up their training program! Well, sort of. They put up the first segment which covers weeks 1 thru 3. And it looks pretty legit guys. If you're curious, you can download it here.
Five pages of pure awesome. I'm still working on finding a partner for this adventure, however. Someone will eventually give in to me!! I'm persuasive like that. Trust me.
- What's your go-to breakfast in the morning? How often do you switch it up?
- Do you make a weekly workout schedule? If you do, do you follow it?
- Do you want to do the urbanathlon with me? Actually, forget that one. I know you do.
