Flatterday is back. Try to hold back your excitement, okay?
I actually think I only did a Flatterday post once, maybe twice, but it’s a nice change up from Flat Kitty Friday, yes?
It makes me smile a bit. Hopefully it does the same for you.
Yesterday’s workout was 10 slow miles in my new Mizuno Elixirs.
I had to take them for a test run before The San Francisco Marathon next weekend.
Today’s workout my boot camp class I teach and a quick 4 miles on the treadmill.
Here’s some eats as of late from this neck of the woods.
The boys and I made some low fat red velvet cupcakes the other day.
While I tried to stay away from the Dunkin Hines cream cheese frosting in the tub for the cupcakes,
Yesterday the “frosting” went on pumpkin protein cookie dough (along with some peanut butter).
I’ve been making that Yum Hum Dressing quite a bit. The other day it was mixed with this kale from Trader Joe’s.
I used it again the next day with these turkey lettuce wraps.
Again, thanks to Laura for that recipe.
We tried a new wine last night from Costco for our date night.
This is how I did up Chinese food last night.
And this is the new coffee I opened this morning from Jessica for my perfect summer mocha (iced of course for summer and all).
I brewed up those delicious beans in my stovetop espresso maker in pace of espresso. Pretty tasty.
Since it’s Flatterday and all, Flat Kitty and I were up super early today to try to get some pictures.
That’s Pat the parrot behind us. Yeah. It’s Pat, you know, like from Saturday Night Live? We rescued him (or her) awhile ago.
Oh and lovely deodorant mark on my shirt. I just noticed that. Lovely.
We got distracted by my ghost chili pepper plant that doesn’t seem to be producing any ghost chilies for me quite yet.
Oh and after I ate a huge serving of summer surprise cookie dough dip this afternoon I ate a big bowl of microwave popcorn.
I topped it with some butter spray, nutritional yeast, Slap Ya Mama and some cayenne.
It was good stuff.
And although these PR bars are not dairy free and I didn’t have one today, I’ve had a couple recently that have been good.
I had the chocolate mint one the other day.
They kind of have a lot of sugar, but they taste really good. It reminded me of a thin mint cookie.
I had tried the apple pie one in the car yesterday.
Why do I show you these awful pictures?
Flat Kitty made a few visits recently. His first one was to Jessica’s house where he tried to sneak some of her fat free biscuits with chocolate gravy and PB2 on top.
And he got really lucky when he got to accompany about 40 middle school students and 4 adults to Tampa, Florida on a science-related trip.
Susan was nice enough to share all the photos and recap the Flat Kitty festivities for us all.
Thanks for sharing Susan.
Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
And can I just say one more time that this whole potty training thing is really not that fun.
Not to name names or anything, but one of my guys sees to have it down while the other one could give a rip.
Question: What’s your favorite popcorn topping?
