Really hard to believe it's Sunday afternoon already as I sit down to type this. I feel like the weekend FLEW by. I got not nearly enough accomplished around the house & somehow it's already almost Monday again.
Luckily this coming week is a short week for me. We get Friday off of work. So I've got my eye on that 3 day weekend prize!
Friday night was a delicious fish fry, that I inhaled & managed to capture no pictures of...
But picture clam chowder, fried fish, mac & cheese, homemade coleslaw, bread & butter & a dixie cup full of Franzia...because no church fish fry is complete without room temperature Franzia.
Saturday morning was a nice long 13 mile run. I had 12 on the schedule, but the group run route was set for 13, so I went a little further than needed. It's always worth it. Though I'm definitely feeling it today, thanks to a serious hill or two in the first 3 miles.
After my run I had the terribly hard job of stand-in fiance for a friend who had a wedding cake tasting scheduled. We headed to a local Pittsburgh bakery to test out the options. Unfortunately neither of us were impressed. But, I guess that's just one more option to take of the table. We headed back to her favorite bakery so far, Grandview Bakery & snagged a cupcake to share.
And then proceeded to snag a few pictures of the pup all "dressed" up for a belated St. Patrick's Day, before he rebelled & said NO MORE.
This morning I set out to make these Mint Chip Oreos from Your Cup of Cake. They are absolutely delicious & were so simple since they used a boxed cake mix for the cookie portion. I added much more mint extract that the recipe called for since it wasn't minty enough for my liking, but other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Unfortunately, the recipe only made 15 or so. I probably could have eeked a few more out, but I made my last set of cookies a bit larger than I realized.
I'll just be busy trying to distract myself to avoid eating these for the next few hours since I made them to take to a house warming party later tonight. MUST. BE. STRONG.
How was your weekend?
Anyone else with a short work week on the horizon?
What's your favorite kind of cake?
