My most sincere apologies for being so M.I.A. for the past week. I don’t really have an excuse, but here’s what I’ve been up to:
I baked Flour’s sticky buns. Did you know they are made out of brioche dough? Did you know that brioche dough contains 2.5 sticks of butter?
Hands down, best sticky buns ever.
I took pictures of more birds. Why are birds SO fascinating to me? These guys were right outside my apartment window.
I made these butter-less, eggless banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for my class and received 17 out of 18 rave reviews! Does this make up for the 3 sticks o’buttah in the sticky buns?
Oh, and I signed up for a 15K.
I debated putting this on the blog for awhile because I figured I would be SO embarrassed if I made a big deal out of signing up for a 15K (yes, that’s 9.3 miles) and ended up backing out. But, I finally came to the conclusion that by putting it out there I will have a bunch of people to hold me accountable. This is a BIG deal for me, because I’ve only ever run a 5K – and even that was hard. This race isn’t until July 10, so I have exactly 6 months from today to train. I can do this!!! Mike and Emily & Peter (the sibs) are signed up too.
Snow day tomorrow!
Those sticky buns look like complete butter heaven. I feel like this blog has Paula Deen essence written all over it with the multiple sticks of butter haha…but the 15k makes up for it? I don’t know, I like to tell myself things like that to make me feel better about eating multiple sweets in a day lol.
I have definitely channeled Paula Deen on more than one occasion – glad we’re on the same page about running making up for our sweets obsession!
