Guten Morgen my fine friends!
Weekends are always so wonderful when they are jammed packed with fun things. We went and saw Alice in Wonderland last night in 3D. What a fun movie! Johnny is definitely on my fave actors list and he amazes me in all the different “out there” roles he plays. Have you seen it? What were your thoughts? I love, love, LOVED the red witches character, I think she would be the perfect Halloween costume for this year
Of course we never travel into a theatre empty handed….well empty pursed. The treats and water always seem to end up crammed in my handbag so we can sneak them in. Last night we brought some crackers and some cookies with us.
I tried a new recipe for cookies over the weekend and this one was hands down the bestest!
They have some added protein powder in them to give them a real PowerHouse punch! They are great for pre workout sessions and great to keep you full and going through a long day of shopping
I found the original recipe here on fitnessista.com (thank you Gina!), but tweaked it just a smidgen I am always tweaking and modifying to what I have in the house or to my own diet. I love baking and am always up to the challenge of thinking up modifications
I don’t know about you, but when I make cookies, bars, etc. I always leave myself enough in the bowl to lick clean. I can’t wait for the bowl when I am done….I am like a little girl all over again!
