Yesterday was a fantastic day to eat and run. The weather was total crap, so I was stuck on a treadmill, but there were no less than 7–count em–SEVEN eastern European and Russian women in my BodyPump class 6′ and up.
That means I didn’t look like the teacher in the toddler camp, or I that I was lording over munchkinland. I was a part of the MAJORITY. I can’t tell you how weird it was to not only be surrounded by a crew of my fellow Amazonians, I was actually SHORTER than some of them. I wanted to start a club–or a kickline. I couldn’t decide. (take THAT Rockettes! Who says you can’t be 6′ tall and in a kickline? You and your silly live-action 3d show; and your baby Jesus flying with Santa to hang out with the three Wise Men.
I did a quick six miles on the dreadmill.
- 9:11-I had an itch that I kept trying to scratch
Total 50:21 of solid sweat. Holla.
In case you weren’t aware. It’s WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY! I see you shiver, with antci—-pation. (bonus points to those who get that reference.)
Breakfast was fit for an 80 year old, so it was perfect for a red tent week, when I want to be post-menopausal already.
If you read last night’s blog post, you know that this is slow cooked pork ragu over italian bread. It’s divine-really.
Homemade Cashew Joys. (aka, guess who had a big bag of coconut she needed to use up!?)
- 2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2T flour or Gluten Free rice flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 oz milk or dark chocolate-chopped
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Beat the COLD egg white until soft peaks form.
- Fold in sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, flour and salt.
- Scoop into one inch scoops onto a silpat or parchment lined sheets
- push a cashew into the tops of each one
- bake for 20 minutes
- melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave
- dip the ENTIRE tops of each coconut ball into the chocolate
- let firm up in the fridge overnight. (not bloody likely. I lasted 10 minutes)
There ya go, batch 14.
Do you like almond joy bars?
Would you like them better if they were cashews?
