Warning! All over the place post ahead!
Earlier this month (I can still say that for 3.75 more hours) I participated in a Blogger Bake Swap started by Jess & Amy. I got paired up with Laura who blogs at Pretty Little Words. The goodies she made for me arrived yesterday!
These chocolately mini doughnuts are absolutely adorable and delicious! Thanks, Laura! I enjoyed way too many.
I made my way to the gym after work to do a seven mile tempo run. I hopped on the TM and did the first warm up mile and then ended the run 0.4 miles later. Yeah. The run just was not happening. I felt sticky, hot, icky, and the gym didn’t smell too fantastic. I found out why after doing some weights, the AC wasn’t working! Boo. Here’s what I thought of the experience.
After the gym, I had another surprise waiting on my doorstep today. A little while ago I won a giveaway from Hank’s blog by writing a haiku about jerky! The winners would get a free sample and have to review it on their blog.
Lucky indeed! The package is two servings and each is only 50 calories. Not too shabby. The aroma of the turkey Perky Jerky was fantastic. You could smell the soy and Worcestershire sauce! The taste did not disappoint at all. It was so flavorful, a little peppery with a bit of a sweet hint. I loved it. It was hard to save the other half of the bag for Scott to try. I even let the kitties have a taste (they loved it, too).
Consider me a Perky Jerky fanatic now! It was a good post-lifting snack. According to the website, the turkey flavor can be found at Target! As if I needed another excuse to go there.
I made another simple dinner again tonight. Whole wheat pasta with some BestLife buttery spread & a dash or two of salt.
Can’t forget the vino. I also had some steamed veggies with 2% cheddar on top.
I’m happy we’re halfway through the work week. That means I’m 25% closer to Scott coming back from the other side of the planet. I asked if he’d take pics of any interesting meals so I can share them with you guys. He’s a good egg. :] But anyway, I really miss the guy a lot!
Sigh. Soon. Very soon.
I have no questions. Comment randomly at your heart’s desire!
