Thursday: Open Eyes and Frames

Thursday got off to a sorry start.  I was awake from 1:45am till after 3:00am which meant the alarm was ignored.  And instead of the 6 miles I had planned, I did the CnC Plank Challenge workout and that was it.  Then the arthritis in my neck (from the bad night sleep?) set my shoulder off and there were muscle relaxers before bed.

However, there was some pretty special stuff in the middle.  It was “date night” (new name pending) and I decided we were going bowling.  Following bowling, I had a Deal Chicken for a BBQ place.

When we got to bowling, we were told it was all you can bowl before 5pm for $8.  HELL YES. In case you didn’t know, we used to bowl in a beer/fun league.  I went 2-3 in the first 5 games and then we decided we had time for one more game.  And that was when the magic happened.

I bowled my first ever 200 game!  201 BABY.  Only 2 open frames.  I even had them print it out for me as proof.  Because the pictures on my phone weren’t enough.

So I ended the day with cookies, drugs and my bowling mojo intact.

Michael bowled some great games as well.  We ended tied at 3-3.  The BBQ was so-so. But that is fine given how far away it is.

Regarding: Bake Sales

I would ROCK at bake sales.  Too bad I don’t have any kids, or belong to a church, or a civic club.  I do volunteer at the adoption center at PetsMart.  But whatever.  That is a different blog. I LOVE to bake.  I love the baking more than the eating.  And with only two of us in the house, most recipes make WAY more than we can get through before it goes stale or bad.  So I have started to pawn my baked goods off on a variety of draftee’s.  First, it was the Wed night bowling league.  Then it because the Kiwanis Garden group.  And now, I have started bringing them to my personal trainer at the gym (talk about a BAD influence).

From this point on, starting now, I will begin to post the recipes and photo’s of whatever I have baked.  I almost always get my recipes from other blogs or websites and will be happy (and obligated) to share those links with you as well.  Happy Baking!

PS:  The photo is the INCREDIBLE Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie that I made recently.  Yes, even before I started blogging I took pictures of the food.  There is an EVEN BETTER Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte. When I make that one again, I will be sure to take pictures and share.
