I can't be stopped!

We had snow, we had freezing rain, we had rain... But I was determined to break in those shoes...and I did. Was just a quick 5km because of the weather Heck! I even jumped in SEVERAL giant puddles along my way... and smiled broadly as I did it (mostly because I was aiming for other people as I was doing it...muahahhaha). I always found it funny when people I ran with got new shoes and were afraid to get them dirty the first few times out. I was thrilled to get them dirty on their maiden voyage today and find it embarrassing to run with REALLY white shoes. The sooner those puppies get dirty, the better. On to the eats - Waffles and stuff that makes people queasy (that thankfully can barely be seen in the picture) Chicken Cacciatore and whole wheat pasta (it's buried under there - trust me) (simply chicken thighs, crushed tomatoes, mushrooms, red & green peppers, onions, tomato paste, spices and a little bit of chicken broth [instead of wine] cooked in the slow cooker) Chicken Greek Pasta Salad DANGER! DANGER! I got bored and made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! WAHHHHHHHHHHH! ********** super simple... 350 for 10-15 mins ...ends up being about 2 points a cookie 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/3 cup butter or margarine - your pref - i used half of each 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 tsp salt 1 large egg 1 cup flour 1 cup oats 1/2 cup chocolate chips Mix wet with sugars. Mix dry. Combine. Add chocolate chips. Makes about 24 evil cookies.

Good job on the run!

I agree with new shoes - the first thing I do is go trail running!

Oh yum those cookies and 2 pts each - not too shabby! Will have to make!

Sara said...

Funny how I say I have to make them and then end up making my Grandma's but I do blame you for getting it into my head!! Very similiar recipe - you just have less fat and less oats. Mine are like pure oats!
