That’s right..I said it..GOODbye muscles of the human body..it was fun while it lasted, but I think I’ll be seeing other people now. I took my final, and it was eassssssy peasy! No more cadaver, no more muscle models, and no more diagrams! Although it wont be a forever goodbye to my Lat’s seeing as how they help me in moving my arm to pick up any crumbs I have dropped in the process of eating. No child left behind, or crumb! During the test I thought I would make everyone a little less stressed by lifting the cadaver and pulling a “Weekend at Bernies” while dancing around the room. OK, perhaps that was too far.. Well what does any food lover do to celebrate the victorious final? Make vegan-gluten free cookies of course!
I am starting to enjoy this baking thing too much. I even thought about making cookies all night and couldn’t fall asleep..kinda weird. It doesn’t help that the Serta sheep are on vacation right meeoow. But before I get to my fantabulous cookies I will share a bit of my nosh the past few days..
Breakfasttt past three days:
In attempt to make right bagel face different than left bagel face (besides obvious lack of chia seeds) I gave right bagel face a peanut butter encrusted top hat. Both were equally delicious. They look angry..or tired..or drugged?
Lunchesss past two days:
The star veggies deserved a close up. I tried a new snack after seeing it on Katie’s blog..
If you have not yet tried the cheese with jam combo (sorry vegans) go try this now.
- Tuesday- 2mile run and various weights
- Wednesday- 1.5 mile walk/weights and a necessary 2.5 mile run after the cookies..my plan was to rest from any running on Wednesday, but after I ate myself into a cookie coma I had to run.
AND now..onto the good stuff..because lets face it, you guys are only here because you want to see ooey gooey chocolatey cookies and because you are being paid to read my blog.
