Are you ready?
Wait. That’s just silly.
Of course you are. In fact, I probably need to really impress since I teased you with this picture on Facebook the other day.
Then I couldn’t even get my act together to publish this video we made or give you the recipe for our special Flat Kitty Friday Peanut Butter Par-tay.
Oh man, I’m a mess. In fact I’m really a mess right now. I have the worst bedhead ever and I’m wearing some old robe I found in the back of my closet. I forgot I even had a robe. It’s not pretty.
This past week has been crazy. I’ve been putting so much pressure on myself to try to get a good audition video together for this amazing opportunity. I’m one of many FitFluential Ambassadors who are submitting videos to possibly work with a well known online publication. I’m so new to this whole blogging and social media thing. It’s kind of silly I’m trying to compete with the big dogs, but there was no way I wasn’t going to give it everything I’ve got. My chances of actually getting a gig are probably not that great, but I am not one to let opportunity pass me by. I’m stubborn and if it’s something I really want, I put my heart and sole into trying to get it. People get to where they are with hard work, not just by chance. This week I’ve been working my butt off (while I should’ve been resting from the my marathon), but I feel good about what I put together.
So, as I sit here right now I am once again sleep deprived, but my all my audition videos are done and hopefully now I can catch up with life.
It’s time to share what I’ve done with you and be a better friend to you all. I owe you for hanging in there and putting up with my teasing.
Don’t worry. The recipe is here.
I shot a new short audition video that I’m submitting. I thought I needed to try again since I handed Joaquin a knife in my other video. I’ll throw it in here just in case you want to humor me and give me any feedback. It’ll look more impressive the more views it shows, but I’m not one to pressure you into watching me. Not yet anyway.
Okay so here it is. My STUFT Weekend Webisode. It’s a little lengthy, but it has 3 awesome moves to do on the BOSU and a little pizoatie creation in the kitchen. This was our premiere. Ha ha!
Just a couple of video notes:
I tried to get all done up. I’m pretty sure the make up I’m wearing is at least 10 years old. I’m blaming it for the huge zit I now have on my chin.
I talk a lot.
I made sure to not hand any knives to the boys this time in the kitchen.
The oven is obviously not on. You’ll see why I say this towards the end.
Here you go. We make this little creation in the kitchen.
Peanut Butter Surprise Pizoatie
All I can say is yum.
And since I really love you all, here’s the recipe in writing so you can go make it right now!
Peanut Butter Surprise Pizoatie
1/2 cup regular oats (40 grams)
1/2 ripe banana
1/4 cup nondairy milk or low fat milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond breeze)
1 packet no calorie sweetener (I used Splenda)
cinnamon to taste (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon peanut butter (or other nut butter)
Mix all ingredients (except the peanut butter) together in a small bowl.
Pour 1/2 of the mixture into a small baking dish or cup sprayed with cooking spray.
Drop the tablespoon of peanut butter in the center (the “surprise”).
Cover with the other 1/2 of the mixture.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.
Optional- Broil for 2 minutes after it’s done cooking to make the top and edges a little crispy.
