Cooky Recipe Number 17: Ginger Almond Cookies
Saturday, November 10, 2012
This is another refrigerator cookie. Very nice molasses and ginger flavor.
I mixed these up last Sunday before embarking on my 12.5 mile long run. I tested out having some pancakes in the morning to see if that would work for race day since the HM is in the afternoon/evening. It worked out well. What I forgot about was that the time change was going to make it get dark very, very early. My husband asked when we were at about mile 10 what time was sundown because it was starting to get dark.
This was at 4:50 and sundown was at 5:05. We do our long runs on a trail near a golf course and they claim to close the gates at sundown. There was no way we were going to get back to the car in 15 minutes so we veered off the trail and ran around the golf course on the street. That was good because the trail is not lighted.
After a quick shower at home, we went out for some Cuban food for dinner. When we got home, my husband decided to feed some of the neighborhood feral cats. Malika decided to take that opportunity to bolt out the door. My husband couldn't get her to come back in...she kept running away. We kept seeing her on our fence but couldn't get to her. She spent two nights outside but on Tuesday I guess she finally decided she had gotten enough of the great outdoors and let my husband pick her up. We were certainly glad to have her back. We're keeping a close eye on the doors when we come and go now.
Tomorrow I we've got a 5ish miler on tap followed by brunch with some friends. Should be a nice day.
