I guess it's time for a check in

Sunday, March 11, 2012

Super busy at work after I got back from Chicago. Lots of samples to run on the mass spec.
I did get in two Jari Love ST sessions and 2 midweek runs. I did some elliptical on Friday because I had a sports/clinical massage on Thursday and knew I shouldn't do any ST. This morning I went for a 3.5 mile long run with the extra walking it was a total of 4.75 miles :-) I felt it a little in my other shin/side of the calf....probably because of the rolling hills on that trail?? Maybe that leg is just tired of compensating for the wonky one. Anyway, it was only a tiny bit sore.
Friday night we had planned to go to a food truck gathering but it was back so we ended up at a local Chinese place called Taiwan. We had planned to go to a food truck gathering but it was packed. They serve their egg rolls in tiny shopping carts:

Today went for brunch with a friend who moved back to New Jersey over the holidays. It was nice to see her.
On a dare from my husband, I baked some chocolate spicy potato chip cookies. I used the Sabritas Adobadas chips. They turned out pretty well. I figured the chocolate cookie would go well with the spiciness.....kind of like cayenne brownies.

I hope everyone is enjoying their short Sunday...except those in Arizona and Hawaii who don't do the silly time change thing.
It's going to be hard getting up to workout tomorrow morning...that's for sure.

    Love the shopping cart, but not so sure I would have liked the cookies, but I'm sure you could have convinced me to try one since you are QUEEN emoticon of baking. Glad to hear you are out running.

    oh, I love the little shopping cart idea,so cute! Thanks for the explanation, I was worried you had purchased a large bag of something greasy but thank goodness it was just egg rolls. hehe Glad to see you are back running - even if it is will a slightly wonky knee.

    It takes me a whole week to adjust to DST. I like the extra light in the evening, but I wish they'd just leave it that way all year!

    great run!

Haha cute carts! I would have loved one of those when I was a kid to play with when I had my plastic kitchen set and I "cooked" and "shopped" lol!

Ooooh interesting cookies! My coworker made these cookies, I believe they were called mexican cookies, they were chocolate with a little spicy kick at the end. SO good!

Hope you have a wonderful monday!

    I hope you won something big from that dare. What a fantastic idea!
Why isn't ALL food presented in a tiny shopping cart!? It makes up for missing out on the food truck gathering, in my book.
Yay for running!
Thanks for the bear hug:)

    I love the little carts! I saw them at a store and wanted to buy them, but have no idea what to use them for. The cookies I could do, spicy, salty and sweet right up my alley there.

    That little shopping cart is adorable. Never heard of a food truck gathering. Can't imagine what those chocolate cookies taste like with spicy stuff in them. Seems like you are back to running. Good for you!

    I just watched a sportskool program called the super 7 - it's stretches. We have it on demand. I wonder if that would be helpful. Happy back to baking, back home, and happy keeping the goals alive!

    I used to have a little shopping cart like that, I kept fruit in it on the counter...wonder what happened to it. Those are very interesting cookies. They look like they should be for Halloween.
