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?
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!
