I had planned to go to the trail again after work last night. But by the time 6:00 rolled around, I was beaten down from exhaustion and the weather was looking anything but promising. Home it was. “I’ll just do some shred and elliptical,” I thought, “that will be fine”.
But I had to stop by the grocery store first. I have a baking adventure (that I’ll explain in a little) that I needed stuff for. Me and my five or six things stood in line for 15 minutes. Behind the coupon queen herself. Now I do coupons, but this woman took it to a whole other level. And debated prices of various items. Which meant checking back to the weekly ads and such. Just my luck. I surrendered. No workout tonight. There’s absolutely no energy left to burn…
So I came home and did work in the kitchen. First, my dinner. I didn’t really celebrate Cinco de Mayo yesterday, but that doesn’t mean I never get a craving for Mexican! Quite the opposite, so your guess is as good as mine why I didn’t have it last night. So I did a day late. Sorta. Black beans, corn, a little shredded cheese, and some avocado on the side:My quesadilla hung out in the oven a little longer than it should of and got stuck to the bottom of the pan. It was a quesadilla wreck, but it was a beautiful wreck, nonetheless. Kinda like me. ;)
And now the baking story…
Turns out I’m good at baking. Like… really good. Good enough for my friend Jaime to ask me to bake her wedding cake for the reception they’re having for friends and family (that didn’t go to the destination wedding two weeks ago). So yeah… I’m baking a wedding cake. My usual thing is cupcakes, but that’s ok- I’m flexible. :) The reception is in a couple weeks. So this weekend I’m doing a test run on one of the layers. And getting a general idea of what the idea in my head will look like in real life.
Last night was the actual baking of the cake. What, that doesn’t look delicious enough yet? Just wait… They’re now waiting to be filled and wrapped in sugar and butter and all the glory that is buttercream frosting. I will most likely be doing this with wine. Because that’s how I roll.
Since the cake is still a work-in-progress, here’s a little sweetness I used to get me through the day:Oatmeal with coconut, White Chocolate Wonderful, and a little Cinnamon Pecan Special K (on the underneath). All to go with my TJ’s green tea. We discussed the sweetness of the WCW earlier this week, and it was just kind of “eh” in my breakfast. Peeps were right- too sweet for oatmeal. Oh well. Now I know.
I’m hoping tonight after work I’ll be feeling much better! It’s rainy, so I’m not planning the trail tonight, but probably a little Shred and Elliptical action. I’m cool with that.
Enjoy your Friday!
