“The journey is the reward.” – Chinese Proverb
Recapping last night:
As per tradition, my parents and I went to a local Chinese restaurant for dinner. I special ordered steamed veggies which was served with white rice.
I devoured the veggies and ate about 2/3 of the rice. And of course had a fortune cookie.
I also left an Operation Beautiful note:
After dinner we started to drive around town looking at Christmas lights, but our plans were cut short due to the rain.
Once at the house I wanted to make dough balls but didn’t have flour!
Fear not, my father braved the rain and bought flour for me! -Thanks Dad!
With near disaster avoided I made dough balls…
I made classic chocolate chip, peppermint chocolate chip, and a chocolate chip made with whole wheat flour (recipe coming soon! It came out pretty good!).
All that baking and my 10 miler earlier in the day really wore on me, so I crashed soon after.
This morning I woke up just before 9am.
- 1 container Chobani plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 c. multi-grain oats
- Handful of blackberries
- 8 almonds
- 1 T TJ’s Cranberry Apple Butter
Today we are meeting with our neighbors for a get-together. Then I will be hitting the bookstore looking for this lovely book…
Is there self-hosting in The Singing Runner‘s future? You’ll just have to wait and see.
Have a great day everyone!
