Thanks to today’s nasty Boston weather I got So Much Done around here.
I finally broke out our new Jack Lalanne juicer. First I made a basic tomato and carrot juice. It was 1 full tomato and 3 full carrots. It was good, but it was missing something but I only bought so many juice-able veggies.
The next juice that Abe made was much better: 1 tomato, 4 carrots, and 1 orange. This one was nice, very refreshing thanks to the orange.
It never really occured to me how many veggies went into one cup of juice. I mean really, I get it, but it’s going to be an expensive habit. I think I’ll just juice on the weekends and just make really good ones.
I did make biscotti earlier in the day…but I have a bit of a sweet tooth today! After my crock pot dinner that was Really Bad (don’t use this recipe
…it was super disappointing!) So what fixes a bad dinner better than a better dessert? I decided to make chocolate chip cookies with the basic Toll House recipe with both semi-sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. It was a nice combination, everyone should try mixing the chips once in a while!
Now that I’ve taken a bit of a break from running, I am going to have to be more careful on my calorie intake. I will start that tomorrow : ) But also tomorrow I plan on doing an easy run to see how I’m feeling and gauge how things are looking for the fall.
