One more day ‘til the weekend – eeeeeek!! Got any fun plans I should know about?!
Ok – do you ever have those weeks where you just don’t feel like exercising? This week has definitely been one of those… I don’t know if it’s the gray and cloudy weather we’ve had since last weekend or what – but I am in a slump my friends! I canceled my 3 mile run this afternoon but am thinking about heading out on my bike for a cruise after dinner. Yep, I committing.
In other news, our state tax refund check finally arrived in the mail! We’re cheap and it was something like $60 to file electronically, so we went the old fashioned route and filed by snail mail for free…which means it took about 6 extra weeks to get our refund…d’oh! Are we putting the refund towards a fabulous vacation, wardrobe makeover or exciting night on the town??? Nope – we’ve got to paint our house…double d’oh!! Owning a home is hard word don’t you know!?
So I arrived home from work hungreeeeeeee – and I
may have spoiled my appetite by eating a few of these…
(I couldn’t help it they are so good! I immediately stashed the rest of them in the freezer!!!) so I made a light and semi-random dinner of steamed green beans and a mashed potato 🙂
I just love steamed green beans – I don’t, however, love standing over the sink, snapping their little green bean ends off! My Mom finds it therapeutic…how about you?
I used some Drunkin’ Priest Dippin’ Sauce in my mashed potato and boy was it ever good!!!
Oh, back to those sugar cookies – a few of you asked about the icing I used. I just made a simple royal icing – here’s a good recipe to try!
Ok, I am seriously going right.this.moment., changing my clothes, heading out the door and grabbing my bike. It’s Tour de Iowa Girl Eats’ neighborhood time!!!
What do you do when you don’t feel like exercising? Just do it anyways? Take a night off? Take a week off?? Share your tips and I’ll create a tip sheet for everyone!
Have a wonderful evening everyone!
