Hope everyone has a great halloween and does something mischievous tonight. ;)
First, let me go back to yesterday. I started with a bowl of oats that had too much milk, but once I mixed in some PB - it made it more like peanut butter milky oats, so all was ok.
- 1/2 c oats
- too much skim milk
- almonds (probably too many)
- spoonful of peanut butter
- drizzle of maple syrup
At work yesterday, we had a Halloween Bake Sale to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of MD. Such a great, great cause. I went and supported by buying some baked goods! yum.
First, I bought a plate of these Indian sweet treats because it was the only thing on the table I had never tried before. I think it looks like polenta and the consistency is like polenta also. There is a sweet flavor, but not too sweet. The cashew and raisin on top complimented the flavor well. Anyone know what these things are called? Or where I could find a recipe? Or if they are semi-healthy for you?
My second purchase was a sweet potato pie! A former co-worker used to bring these in and I fell in love with them. So GOOD, and as you can see, I had to try a slice of this one immediately. It was not to sweet and not to savory - juusst right.
Last night, the weather was SO much nicer. Sunny, in the 50s, and not too windy. Perfect running weather. We did another 3 miler and then decided to go out and drink some beer in our running clothes. This is one of the reasons why I love Baltimore - I feel like it is a pretty relaxed place where I can feel completely comfortable and normal sitting in a bar in my sweats and a long sleeve t-shirt. nice!
We went to JDs Smokehouse in Canton square (cant seem to find a website for this place) and they were having a bucket beer special, so we sat at the bar and got a bucket of 5 bud lights for $8. Not too bad, especially when you are used to paying $3 a beer.
We decided to split some appetizers to go with our beer. Chicken and vegetable potstickers and then 10 BBQ wings - 5 Golden BBQ and 5 Sweet Baby Rays BBQ. I had 2 Golden (which is like a honey mustard base) and 1 SBR wing and then half of the potstickers - love these things. oh and fries, did I mention seasoned fries come with the potstickers? Those suckers were good and my ultimate weakness.
We also ordered a Texas Brisket Sandwich that came with swiss and mushrooms on a fresh baguette with au jus on the side. I had a few bites just to try it, but I was stuffed. Definitely an indulge night, but it felt good to do it. Need that sometimes. I was shy about taking pictures (AGAIN).
I had a PB and J sandwich on wheat bread for breakfast, with half a banana and brought a HUGE honeycrisp apple for a snack.
Hope everyone is having a great Halloween day!
I almost forgot to mention how my Acorn Squash turned out the other night! Here is a picture of the deliciousness. See the brown sugar/butter goodness in there? I basically dipped the squash in this sauce before each bite. So heavenly.
Later today, I am going to try uploading my first VIDEO to the blog. It is from last year's Turkey Bowl football game. Kevin threw me a deep pass in the corner for a touchdown. It was very exciting! We are going to try and do a repeat at this year's event!
