Just Call Me Martha

WARNING THE FOLLOWING PICTURES ARE GOING TO MAKE YOU HUNGRY, PLEASE READ ON A FULL STOMACH!

Helllllllo beautiful people in my life! I have been one busy bunny around these parts. I started baking right after lunch and didn’t get done until 7:30pm. Needless to say I felt like a true baker, I don’t know how Angela does it.

I multi tasked….no make up today :)

Tried hard not to taste too much… ya that was HARD!

I would love to say I have some great healthy recipes for you all, but I went with a few classics from an old Nestle Cook Book I have on hand ( in no way are these healthy).

I received some Amish Friendship Bread from a friend at the gym and today was the day that I was able to make it!!!  It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

I made two loafs, one for the Hubby and I and the other I will be giving to a friend;)

Because I didn’t get done baking till late Hubby was so sweet to get us Chinese take-out!!!!! I would have loved to make a fine and creative dinner, but I had no more energy.

I enjoyed my meal with a glass of White Wine that we got from my Grandparents last year from Fresno.

I ordered the Garlic Shrimp with added tofu on top of my own brown sticky rice. I had this portion times two! I also had a piece of the Amish Bread, holy amazing!

While enjoying dinner Hubby and I watched the finale of “Sing Off” it was ok. I am not a fan of Nick Lachay who was the host, he was annoying!!! But I love Ben Folds he is one talented musician!

Overall it was a great day, I only have a few more things to get crossed off my to-do list and then I can just sit back and relax for the rest of the week!!! Tomorrow morning I am going for an easy 3 mile run with Mr. Rick and Fast Jill this will be my first time running with them since my marathon!!!! Can’t wait to catch up.

Good night loves!

I don't think there is such a thing as a healthy Christmas cookie. It's just not sensible and why would you ever even want to attempt such a thing? :)

OMG Bobbi, your baked goods look fantastic. I am so envious of your ability to bake. You really are a super woman! :)

Have a fun day dear.
