8:30 oh yeah, DINNER!!
10:30 I should probably blog.
After yesterday’s awesome Fitness Magazine Meet and Tweet event…(post next week when I upload!!) I think I crammed all of two day’s worth of calls and business to today, and it rained on my head like pig’s blood on a telekinetic girl at the prom. On the bright side, I’ll have PLENTY of sweat time tomorrow at #RbkFitBlog to scratch my exercise itch. I won’t even need an antibiotic to treat this itch!! (what happens in vegas…stays with you until you get it treated…or so I hear.)
I can’t tell you how ever loving excited I am about this event. Not ONLY will I get to be hanging out with some of my favoritest bloggers in all of the land, but I’ll also get to be at Reebok Headquarters. It’s like the Quantico of Jazzercise. I am PUMPED. Please pray to whatever deity you choose that I can refrain from making a complete ass of myself. If you know me, you know this is like asking a Comic-Con attendee to leave their costume at home, or asking the Sweet Genius to be normal for a moment.
Maybe they’ll just look at my recipes on the blog and neglect to see all the talk of imaginary creatures, fear of naked talking, love of wine, and obsession with all things musical theatre.
Probably not, but I can hope.
In the interest of feeding Reebok, or you know, YOU SCAMPS, here’s a SUPER QUICK, way delicious, amuse bouche/appetizer/finger food for your next par-tay.
Mini Potatoes with Cream Cheese and Lox.
these are so simple, they need nary a recipe.
This is how you do it
let cream cheese come to room temp while you bake the mini potatoes, widely available at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
combine lemon juice with the cream cheese, stir in some garlic powder (just a tiny bit) and chopped chive
bust the top of the baked potato, top with a bit of lox, top with a bit of the cream cheese, and add chives. SOOOO good. trust me, you’ll love it. A LOT.
