Baking and Basics

My first baking experience at the new house went well! Last night I decided to make some Oatmeal Cookies from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan- they were supposed to be raisin, but I conveniently had NO raisins in the house so I subbed oragnic dark chocolate chips and they came out fabulous!

I saved half the batch for a certain special couple who's 20th Anniversary is today (Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!), gave some to my roommate and brought a few over to snack on with Nick, who said they were really good... I had two and had to agree!

My two:

I had a nice night's rest, although it is getting cold out there!!
This morning I woke up and did my usual mid-week full body strength session. I spent a half an hour doing two sets of 12 of my Self routine, plus a few new moves I've learned.
Afterwards, I was famished, as I generally feel in the morning, so I made myself exactly what I was craving- my basic oats, with 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup water, a spoonful of pb, a big banana, 1/2 cup 0% chobani and a big dose of cinnamon. I know, it's getting a bit boring, but it is soooo good I can't get enough of these delicious filling bowls! Nothing seems to satisfy me as well as a heaping bowl of oats.

Today is a short day, class-wise (I only have two), but I'm running a couple errands after work, possibly going home to say hi to the 'rents and spending the evening getting some work done, because I work all day tomorrow.
