Heat?! What heat? Team Quincy is totally cool!
I’m so glad that I woke up early to run with Back on My Feet this morning. I missed my friends! It was also nice to see some new faces in the group!
I ran two miles with BOMF and then did two miles on my own at home. When I returned from my run, I made myself an iced coffee with soy milk and vanilla protein powder to drink while I walked Murphy. Iced coffee + pug walk = fabulous.
For breakfast, I whipped up some scrambled eggs with Garlic Gold and nutritional yeast, which is such an awesome flavor combination. So yum. I also ate a banana with breakfast.
Last Night’s Dinner
I made myself a “special” Arnold Palmer to enjoy!
For dinner, I cooked some Mushroom & Herb Risotto and added some chunks of chicken breast to it. It was simple, yet delicious. The TJ’s Mushroom & Herb Risotto was really good— I’d definitely buy it again!
After dinner, Mal and I decided that we wanted something sweet to eat, so we baked some Cutout Sugar Cookies from Mama Pea’s new cookbook, which I am absolutely loving. There are so many amazing recipes in it!
The cookies turned out great! The frosting was especially easy to make and so, so, so delicious, which, of course, is probably trouble for me!
