I was in a rush tonight and had to eat at work. So for dinner I had protein bar, a bag of Funyuns, and some red vines. My stomach must think I hate it. The best part was that I ate that crap so I could go to work again at 6:30pm, but the person I was going to meet cancelled on me at 6:15. This was after I crammed the above mentioned crap down my throat instead of going home to eat something really tasty with my family.
I did work out yesterday, a short jog of about 3 miles. It felt alright, the weather was warm (for here anyway) 30 degrees with little wind. It was pretty damned slippery though, I had the penguin hustle going on to stay upright and avoid pulling a hammy.
I felt so good about working out that I rewarded myself with one of these. It's like a power shake or gatorade, sort of....
If your idea of relaxation is getting locked inside a giant egg-like thing with your legs sticking out, then the Armchair Paradise is just the thing. I know a couple of moms that would enjoy something like this...
I was going to take a nap, but I had an embarrassing moment today when I got my wiener stuck:
I got it unstuck though and I'm going to take a nap with my cat.
Someone should make this and give me a fully detailed report (I'm too lazy):
Makes about four cups
4 tablespoons good ground coffee
2 cups water
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 envelopes gelatin
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons good rum or cognac (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate shavings and curls
Brew the coffee with the water using a French press. Put in a small bowl or a glass measuring cup. Stir in the sugar and pinch of salt and sprinkle the gelatin over top. Let it soften for a few minutes then whisk vigorously until gelatin is thoroughly dissolved. Refrigerate until it is set - about two hours.
Add the liquor, vanilla and a pinch of the salt to the cream. Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Remove the cream to a separate bowl, and whip the coffee gelatin, quite firm by this point, until it is frothy and creamy. It will look like a thick dark mocha espresso drink, but still with tiny flecks of brown coffee jelly. Stir this frothed coffee jelly and the cream together.
Spoon into a mold or individual cups and refrigerate again until set - at least an hour. It will still be quite soft and creamy, like a refrigerator version of ice cream.
It is that time of night when I should be between the sheets drooling on my pillow, but alas, here I am falling asleep in front of the computer again. I have this habit of falling asleep sitting up and when I do, my middle finger rests on the right click button of my mouse. My fingers must need to lose some weight because I invariably end up right clicking somewhere random on the screen.
I definately have some kind of attention span issues, because I have the TV on some history channel documentary about "mega-excavators", the internet is providing some random music I found, and I'm typing in my blog simultaneously. Yeah I think some pills might help, but maybe just some self control.
It's just about that time of night when the infomercials begin to look like quality products I might need...
