So I may have ‘accidentally’ (okay, it wasn’t an accident, I was really tired and needed a little something something) had some caffeine via a crystal light yesterday morning at 6 a.m. I haven’t had caffeine in probably a year and I think it may have gotten into Brooke’s system because in a 14 hour time span she slept a total of 2 hours yesterday. We had plenty of time to entertain each other.
Brooke wanted me to show off her latest awesome tongue trick that she showed me as we were sitting by the pool chilaxing. Doesn’t she have the coolest sideburns ever?
As you can see by her eyeballs this little girl was wide awake. Most bloggers use cool table clothes and backgrounds for their pictures of food but I use a baby for mine.
My CUTEST friend Pam (she is running the Chicago Marathon on Oct. 7th) sent a fun box of goodies for Brooke and also this amazing curry sauce mix for me after I told her how much I am loving curry.
It doesn’t look very great but believe you me, it was amazing. Let me give you a helpful tip in life: When making rice, do not follow their serving suggestion. I made the ‘2 servings’ size of rice and it forced me to convince billy to go on a diet and cut out cabs in order to eat his portion of rice too after I ate my ‘serving’ in two bites… remember Janae, next time double it. I put chicken, carrots, potatoes, onions and cauliflower into the sauce mix.
I know you are all going to ask me this but no, I did not go to culinary arts school (you are all thinking it based on my beautiful presentation of the apple slices).
My cute bangs friend texted me on Sunday night and said that they had too much chocolate cake (is that possible?) left at their house and they needed me to help them get rid of it Monday night. I am glad I have such a good reputation for being a human garbage disposal:)
Close up on the heaven that my friend in the blue is holding. It is her famous candy corn and peanut combination (remember, 1.5 peanuts per candy corn is the winning combination).
The most delicious chocolate cake ever.
I love the name of the cake and it really doesn’t get any healthier than this:
Moral of the story: Janae shouldn’t drink caffeine, curry and chocolate cake make a person happy and my baby is probably a genius because she can do cool tongue tricks.
What is your workout today?
-I am going to run some easy miles and spend 23 quality minutes with Jillian Michaels.
Anyone running the Chicago Marathon? Anyone ran it in the past? Anyone want to run it in 2013 with me?
How often do you drink caffeine?
-Usually only before races or long runs (I used to be really addicted to diet coke but quit) but I learned my lesson yesterday and won’t be having it again for a while.
Do you have a favorite rice dish or food to eat with rice (I have a lot of brown rice to use:)
