As is my custom, I have gotten out of the custom of writing in my blog. Again. I’m not sure why. We’ve had quite a bit of “action” lately. The Beentz was here for a visit, Tim’s mom was here for a visit, I took a watercolor class at the Figge, I agonized over getting a smart phone and finally broke down and got one and then traded it in for the iPhone 4s, my mom bought me an awesome $15 standup desk from Salvation Army, we ran a 5K. What else? Hmm… I found another school program I am interested in – Human Computer Interaction at Iowa State University. Maybe I’ll do it? That’s about the past month or two real quick-like.
On to the present, today we are cooking! This morning I tried a roasted chickpea recipe from Fitness Magazine. They probably would have turned out deliciously if I hadn’t over cooked them by at least 5 minutes. The chickpeas that were not reduced to ash were actually pretty tasty. I’ll have to try that recipe again.
Right now we are cooking up some delicious minestrone and acorn squash. I made the absolute best chocolate chip cookies on Thursday, and I froze half the dough, so I might bake up some of those up tonight too. Once the cold, windy weather sets in, I’m all for keeping the oven on all day.
Tim and I played a game of Carcassone, ate some Buffalo Wild Wings, and listened to some great music this afternoon. Did some laundry, kissed Lucent on the head lots, dyed my hair dark brown. Overall, it’s been a pretty excellent Sunday. Here’s to me getting back on track with blogging and with healthy eating & exercise habits (which have been absolutely disgusting lately).
Take care, and don’t forget to the watch the Simpsons Halloween special tonight!!
