All good ideas should begin with chocolate
As you can see, I was excited that KU wasn’t losing but I was more excited to bake!
The second part to good ideas should always be chocolate chip cookie dough
My camera took this all on it’s own. As you can see there is an example of pure hard work above…can’t you see the blur of my arm?? Super mixing skills right there. Feel free to count as your workout for the day.
Cookie dough, meet brownie batter. As you can tell from the photos I do my best baking at night.
Then these babies go in the oven, and I proceed to get my stuff set out for the race tomorrow:

By her standards, it is amazing. I hope I get some more good ideas like this soon. Reallll soon.
Now I must exercise self control and stop blogging because I am hoping to PR a 4 mile race in the morning!
