He told me he loved me.
Who knew making the little boy grilled cheese with some bacon on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread was the key to his heart?
Now don’t get your panties in a bunch about me suddenly having bacon in the house.
It just so happens that I had an Applegate coupon to use and decided there was nothing wrong with keeping their Turkey Bacon in the freezer for the occasional breakfast treat for the boy. And just maybe, if I want to admit it, I break out the bacon so that he thinks I am cool.
In case you are looking for the key to my heart by the way, I am pretty simple; that key can be found in a slice of chocolate cake. Or a jar of Mighty Maple peanut butter.
The key to my house yesterday morning could be located somewhere inside one of the many pockets I had on me after bundling up to run in the 23 degree early morning air.
Clearly the thermometer is challenging me, but I am ready. As long as there is little to no wind, I will bundle on up to avoid that treadmill as often as possible.
As I ran, I laughed to myself from beneath my scarf watching all of my neighbors warming up their cars to leave for work.
Actually, I didn’t see my neighbors. What I witnessed was a series of empty cars being automatically started because no one was brave enough to come outside and sit in a cold car.
And there I was, running.
If you don’t run outdoors in winter, perhaps you think I am crazy but I swear to you, wearing all of these layers truly keeps you warm.
I was not the slightest bit cold, if anything, I may even have experienced feeling a tad hot.
So. Weekend time. Another opportunity for snow, ice, sleet and/or rain.
The weather isn’t supposed to get all icky on us until later on tomorrow morning which means my long run shouldn’t be affected.
I am sure the grocery stores will be packed today so the smart cookie that I am went to Trader Joe’s yesterday.
The best part was scoring a super large bag of the Organic Carrots of Many Colors. I am convinced this bag is much bigger than the last.
I get excited for things like this. Don’t you?
While I am hopeful that the weather mess doesn’t keep me stuck indoors, in the outside chance it does, I have been busy pinning a bunch of new recipes to try out.
What I love about my pins on Pinterest is that most of them come from bloggers I follow, meaning we can trust that the recipes will come out as amazing as they look.
And wait, I totally forgot to tell you that the little boy and I made Magic Cookie Bars last weekend because he needed to bake up a treat to bring with him somewhere.
If you are wondering why you see a jar of Skippy in place of my favorite Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut Butters, it is because I keep the giant jar of Skippy Natural on hand for baking.
Only if you have the key to my heart do I share my Crunch Time or Mighty Maple. And even then you are pushing your luck.
Is it supposed to snow by you this weekend?
Have you tried out any new recipes worth sharing?
