The good news is…
I finally got off of the couch
I ran a fast (for me) 12 miles in 1:39:22
I felt much better than my last 12 mile run which was plagued with heat and negative thinking
The rain held off allowing me to run in perfect running weather
I had time to soak in a hot tub and massage my tired legs
The Bears are playing this afternoon
It is officially soup season
I have fresh peppers (red and poblano) and onions to make Taco Soup
Fall beer is upon us
And, we are going out to Maya Del Sol tonight for my rescheduled birthday dinner celebration!
One last piece of good news for you foodies out there is that I combined a few favorites to make S’mores bars this afternoon.
After a soak in the tub and lunch x 2, I headed out to pick up some groceries. It is always so funny to go to the Jewel on a Sunday because EVERYONE (even the employees) are decked out in blue and orange. Even I as sporting my BEARS gear. A coworker of mine is sadly moving and this is her last week at work. We are doing a dessert potluck (is there any other kind?) this week. I had just enough time after shopping and before hopping in the shower to whip up these amazing looking (and smelling) S’mores Bars that I found on Janae’s blog. BTW, if you haven’t checked out Janae’s site, she is pretty hilarious.
I followed Janae’s suggestions for extra mallows and fewer chocolate chips. I had a little trouble with cracked graham cracker crust as I tried to spread my dough mixture on top. I wasn’t too worried about it…with ingredients like these, how could you go wrong?!
The bars look and smell amazing!!! I didn’t have time for taste test before dinner, but my mouth is watering just thinking about them. What I like about these bars is that they bring in a cookie element. Unfortunately, the marshmallows swallowed my Hershey’s bars whole, but maybe that is supposed to happen.
Hopefully there will be enough left to take to work on Tuesday!
