Yesterday was long. Too long. Hopefully (for you) this post will be short.
Here’s a glance at yesterday.
Miles driven back and forth for multiple trips to the gym- 90
Total classes taught at the gym- 6
Bags of broccoli slaw purchased from Trader Joe’s because I thought I was out- 3
Bags of broccoli slaw sitting at home in the fridge that I didn’t remember were there- 5
Times I told Joaquin in a very stern voice “do not touch the hose”- at least 20
Times Joaquin looked at me, waited until I walked back inside and turned it on anyway- at least 20
Chicken hot dogs chewed up and spit out in Turk’s water (again by Joaquin)- 1
Batch of Green Chia Cookie Monster Dough Dip made and consumed- 1
Emails/comments that I should’ve responded to- 50ish
Emails/comments I actually responded to- maybe 3
Times I felt like I wanted to pull my hair out- I lost count
Extra minutes spent cuddling even after the following statements “Mommy sweaty and need shower” (Judah), “bite me” (Joaquin)- 5
Zits found on my face once I finally got to take a shower and look in the mirror at 9 pm- 3
Random hairs found on my upper lip after poking at blemishes- I lost count
Seconds it took to shave my moustache with my Finishing Touch razor- 20
Minutes this roasted broccoli slaw stayed in the oven a little too long- I’d say about 5
Times I’ve promised I’m not going to mention broccoli slaw or show you pictures of it- a billion
Times I keep showing pictures of it anyway- a billion
Amount of crushed red pepper on my roasted broccoli slaw (with chicken, fresh basil, marinara and leftover cheese less veggie pizza)- not enough
Time spent starting at Dancing With the Stars when I should’ve been getting work done- 40 minutes
Times I really felt like eating a jar of chocolate frosting with a spoon while sitting on the couch exhausted- 3 or so
Calories in this “frosting” that came to my rescue at 10 pm- 30
Minutes it took to make this “frosting”- 2
The amount of calories saved by eating this frosting instead of consuming spoonful after spoonful from a jar- hundreds
Crappy pictures taken (but that I’m going to use anyway because I’ve given up on trying to make this a classy food blog)- 5
Dark Chocolate Frosting
(30-35 calories or so depending on the milk you use)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder)
1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk of choice (I used light vanilla soymilk)
This stuff saved my night. It’s a modified of my STUFT Dark Chocolate Sauce that I already mentioned last week, but I needed to give it a little more attention.
It’s the perfect dark chocolate fix to handle those late at night craving.
Vitalicious Vitacakes (50 calories each) consumed with this frosting last night- 2.
Servings of Katie’s ice cream to accompany the deliciousness- 2
Months since those sprinkles have expired- 15
Minutes I though I’d have to get a couple things done this morning- 40 or so
Minutes I now have because I hear the boys “escaping”- 0
If I owe you an email or comment, don’t give up on me. I’ll get there sometime.
This frosting might just make up for my lack of being a good friend (just a little).
Have a good one!
