Reminder to self....
Don't eat a big dinner, then do a high full body workout. Just because on the video they make it look easy. So you confirm to yourself "yep I'm going through this twice. "
The end result is instead of an after workout glow, its a pale clammy sweat, in which one can visibly see me swallowing back my food.
And tomorrow morning I already confirmed doing an insanity workout. All I can think is "WHY?"
My butt and thighs better be banging after all this brutality.

It is currently snowing outside, the problem with this? This is technically our spring...so any thought of early outside planting is out the door.
I am however breaking the unspoken rule and doing some early planting. I'm just keeping everything in doors. (Is that cheating?)
In the hopes of FINALLY getting a corn crop, this afternoon I planted 52 corn seeds. Hopefully by this fall I will be enjoying a beautiful homegrown cob!!
Here is to a fruitful growing season!

Maybe it was the snowy day, whatever the reason I was feeling nostalgic.
So I dug out a recipe for No Bake Cookies. These bring me right back to High School Home Ec class and our teacher we all loved Mrs. Stewart. These were easy to make and I'm sure Mrs. Stewart had to know that in order to keep us happy, you need to feed us. So the No Bake was a very needed staple for our class!
So here is a piece of my High School.
No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 Tbspn cocoa
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 tsp. vanilla
In a pot mix the first 4 ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the next 3 ingredients, stir it all together.
Drop onto wax paper, let cool and sit.
The only difference is I no longer throw them in the freezer so they set up faster. I have self control to wait the old fashioned way :)

A couple weeks ago I ran out of pancake mix which was rather bothersome being as I was on a straight week bender of pancake breakfast. And I wasn't ready to say goodbye yet...
So I turned to the internet, pintrest to be exact and searched homemade pancakes. The wonderful world of delicious pancakes that came up changed me. I went a little crazy and pinned 20 new recipes to try.
The great thing about pancakes, is they are easy to make and you already have all the ingredients at home to make them from scratch.
So I set off to create "old fashioned pancakes"
They were fluffy, and so good. This recipe carried my bender into the next week.
Sadly I ran out of maple syrup... so now I have to find a recipe to make my own. Then the pancake breakfasts will continue again!
For the recipe, head over to my pintrest page under "I can do that"
