Hello Everyone and welcome President Obama (well not officially, but still)!!
Truthfully, I have always found myself to be on the more conservative end of the spectrum politically, however, I believe Obama to be a good man with a good heart and God knows that he is the one to lead us out of this economical crisis we are in. Rock on!
I’m sorry I didn’t check back last night after work! I got home around 8:30 EXHAUSTED and had a lot of things to get done before today. It’s tough when you don’t get home until 8:30 from work and have to be there at 7 the next morning!
Here’s some highlights from the night:
A GORGEOUS chocolate cake with buttercream icing—done by Adam 🙂
Tasty little white chocolate chambord truffles by moi
Cream puffs filled with strawberries, pastry cream and mandarin orange slices
A caramelized banana tart topped with meringue
The half of a huge chocolate chip cookie I ate when I was leaving work 😉
Overall it was a good night. I got home very tired and took a bath and went to bed. Regretfully, I didn’t stay awake to watch the election because I thought it would be one of those 4 am type deals like it was last election! I found out this morning and I’m definitely not the “angry republican”. I hope and pray all Obama the very best and support him 100%.
This morning, I woke up very tired because I could not fall asleep last night even though I felt exhausted! bleh! I had a yogurt bowl with 1 cup oikos, 1/2 cup quaker oatmeal squares, peanut butter, banana and pom. seeds.
And for a snack……
And for lunch, I packed an Amy’s burrito and a honey crisp apple. I LOVE the southwestern burritos!
The project of work today was for me to make my own greek yogurt. Haha! I REALLY have been wanting to do this and, let me tell you, IT’S SO EASY!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that I know how, I think I will save about $10 every time I go to publix. Seriously!!!
First, you put regular ol’ yogurt on top of a cheesecloth that has been fastened with a rubber band or something on a bowl or container:
Let it sit out on the counter or in the fridge for 8 hours and voila!!!!
So thick and wonderful! EXACTLY like Fage! Wait, only much cheaper!
And that was my afternoon snackie: my yogurt (I had such satisfaction in eating it because I “made” it!) with pom. seeds.
I also made lots of whoopie pies at work:
And a bunch of other time consuming things that I didn’t bother taking a picture of because none of it was a finished product. I made apple pie filling, pumpkin pie filling, pie dough……
No workout for me today. I’m resting. I’m drained! I’ll be back after dinner 🙂
