But something else also happened today... I ATE... ALL. DAY. LONG. It's a good thing that I don't blog my meals because I think, all together, I had like 6-7. I just snacked like my life depended on it (lots of Kashi Crackers mmm! Ranch, my fave!) and it was so odd because I did a much less arduous workout today than usual! Wow... I'm very full now. See, the thing is, I love to eat so much that sometimes I get so excited (warm weather) that I cook and eat and eat and cook and ... well, y'all get the idea. But no worries! It was a good mix up from my usual habits (very rarely do I/have I eaten this much! lol), and should rev up my metabolism lots! Tomorrow's a new day and no doubt an absolutely b-e-a-uuutiful one! Aaaand it's the first day of Pasach (the first of eight). Lots of cooking/baking to do! I'm getting up at 6 to be at step by 8, then showered, to whole foods, and home to prep for Pasach dinner! Whew! Should be a fun, and action packed day! I'm so looking forward to it though! I'm making Butternut Squash Casserole (A.MAZING!!! Yes, I'll post pics! Of the whole pasach spread too! Get excited!), Julz's Fabulous Coconut Macaroons (Mine have dried cranberries, chopped pistachios, sliced almonds, oats, tons of coconut, and half have bittersweet chocolate chips in them!), And my Passover Flourless Sponge Cake with Rubarb-Rasberry Sauce. NOW...All of these recipes were inspired by other recipes; however, they were completely changed/modified to fit the needs of myself and my family. I cannot WAIT to get into that kitchenn! I made the pecan bars and they were meh... Not something I'd eat again, though having surprisingly low caloric counts, they didn't resemble the pecan pie I know and love. My brother really liked them hot out of the oven and over froyo, but agreed that they aren't too "Pecan Pie-y," If you will. So, I'm thinking whether or not I should just go ahead and make them both or choose one from the other. Well, as previously stated, I am not one who likes to choose one dessert from the other, and will most likely end up making both! Yeah! Haha.
Anyways, I'm already home from being out! I'm a loser and have so much to do tomorrow and want to be rested for step! Tomorrow is a brand new day and I love that. A clean slate, a new morning. And I just have that feeling that it's going to be absolutely spectacular.
Love and sweetest dreams to all of my blogging buds!! Can't wait to read all about your weekends and read your comments too! They are my favorite part of this experience, as well as all the friendships I've gained from you. Thanks guys :)
Off to dreamland! Happy Friday and I'll see y'all later this weekend! xo
