Wednesday-1:34 bike (24.3 miles)
I tried out my $13 running skirt from Target on Tuesday.
Not too shabby I say.
The shorts stayed where they were suppose to and that's the key to a good running skirt. The key pocket is lame, don't expect to carry anything in there or at least anything you want to see again.
I just realized I had on my $7 Target tank(my favorite) too.
I was a running Target billboard. Wonder if they are looking to sponsor a cheapskate runner?
If I knew that people would drop by with warm doughnuts when you move, I would have moved sooner.
And every week.
How do they get a warm Krispy Kreme to melt so perfectly into your mouth while still retaining the doughy doughnutty(should be a real word) texture?
Maybe I should consult a cookbook and see if I can make some light, airy melt in your mouth sugary goodness.
If only I had one.
Haha I had no idea I had so many cookbooks. I had them scattered all over the house. Some on the table, counter, living room, bookshelf,
|You spent my college tuition on all those books?|
Gahhh, parents.*shakes head
What can I say, I have a problem.
Hi, my name is Missy and I have a cookbook addiction.
But really, I don't think anyone cares as long as I keep the good food coming.
Which I feel I haven't been doing lately. Moving and crashing a bike are a real energy zapper, not to mention I can't find anything.
Found a toddler roaming the hall yesterday.
Turns out he's mine. Glad I found him, he's a keeper.
Anyway, since things have been a bit crazy around here I have been relying on quick meals.
Breakfast for dinner, or as we call it "Brinner", fits the bill.
If you make pancakes from a mix (TJ's Multigrain for the win) it is super speedy.
Now, I love making my own batter from scratch but sometimes you don't want to think that hard. You have other things to concentrate on, like not packing the toddler into a box.
And sometimes you want to add some pizzazz to those pancakes so it at least looks like you tried.
That's where my blueberry syrup comes in. It's fast, simple and easily adjusted to whatever fruit you have or spices you feel like trying. It wouldn't be horrible on ice cream either, just saying.
I hope you like it!
Mom's Blueberry Syrup
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 cup water, divided
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a saucepan combine blueberries and 3/4 cup water; bring to a boil.
In a small bowl dissolve cornstarch in a 1/4 cup water and add to the boiling blueberries cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Enjoy warm over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream.
You can add some sugar to the berries if you like it sweeter. I use this basic recipe with most frozen fruits and it works well.
Just remember to add sugar to the more tart fruits.
