S’mores S’mores S’mores!

Still looking for different ways to mix up the old fashioned regular s’more!!  Tonight I ate probably the tastiest s’mores I’ve ever had!  One was just having a marshmallow with a Reeses, which I have been told to do so many times but never had any Reeses around!  (Thank you grandma for spoiling me with sweets!!)  Now that I finally had some from my grandma, I couldn’t help but try it and a Reeses s’more is soooo good–no wonder everyone raves about them!  The second s’more I tried was with a neopolitan coconut bar that my dad surprised me with from Cracker Barrel and I gotta tell you this one was just as good!!!!  Coconut lovers must try it!!!

A Different Kind of Track Workout

After not being able to do a track workout for a week or so, I decided it was time to hit the track again to do my least favorite thing of all… speed work!  This was the workout I decided to do:

200 jog
200 fast (0:39)
200 jog
400 fast (1:31)
400 jog
800 fast (1:32 & 1:32 = 3:04)
400 jog with 1 minute stretch
800 fast (1:28 & 1:30 = 2:58)
400 jog
400 fast (1:27)
200 jog
200 fast (0:38)
200 jog

Overall I was happy with the times, especially since I hadn’t been able to do any track workouts while I was in New York for a week.  Clearly my sprinting could use a lot of work but for the most part I was happy with it and getting back into the hard runs!

Cream Cheese Pancakes

Decided to try a new pancake recipe this morning that my aunt told me about… cream cheese pancakes!  I found an interesting recipe that is supposed to actually be pretty good for you too because there aren’t many ingredients at all.  I was super excited to make them with strawberry cream cheese because I thought that’d be really tasty and interesting, but turns out they were just ok.  I personally liked them, but it’s a different kind of taste that I don’t think is for everyone!  On top of that, they’re extremely thin so they’re hard to make and flip as well.  (you can see how thin they are when you look at the edges curled up… kind of like a crepe!)  But on the bright side they’re fairly healthier pancakes to make every once in a while!
