This year I kept it simple and made Dan a card and sent some no-bake cookies with him to work.
No- bake cookies are Dan's absolute favorite cookie. Of course they are. I love to bake. No-bake cookies don't require baking. He takes the joy out of everything. Hehehe.
When Dan and I first started dating he expressed his love for no-bake cookies early on. Because I was young, in love, and wanted to make him happy, I tackled the first recipe I could find (I didn't even own measuring cups). I was so excited to give Dan his favorite cookie and couldn't wait for his reaction.
He took one bite and said, "these don't taste like my mom's no-bake cookies."
I swore to never make no-bake cookies again. If he wanted some he could "go to his mom's house." Then, a few years later, when I wanted to do something special for Dan, I tried them again. This time he took one bite and said, "these are the best cookies I have ever tasted."
Isn't it funny what boys can learn after a few years?
::::::::::::::::::::::Breakfast was a super filling parfait.
I grabbed a microwave tuna packet for lunch. Mmmm....this was so good, but only about 1/3 C of food. My stomach is used to volume (see above).
So, when I got home from work, I had no choice but to finish off the cake batter.
Dinner was comfort food at it's finest. (Click *here* for the meatloaf recipe.)
After dinner I wasn't planning on eating dessert, but then Dan brought some some Diet Coke cake. I only meant to take one bite, but then the whole plate mysteriously disappeared. (Thanks Heidi!)
Two forms of cake in one day? Happy pre-Valentine's Day to me.
I ran 3 miles with the "hill" setting on my treadmill fluctuating from 2 to 6 incline. Whew! By the end of those 3 miles my booty was burning.
Thought for the day:
Daily points (31) + Running Points (6) - Eating Points (42) = -5
Weekly points (49) - Mon (5) = 44
