Quickie Weekend

Ew, it’s Monday again. Gross.

Per usual, the weekend FLEW by. No bueno.

Friday night was low-key: ran a few errands after work, ate pizza that Tyler made, and caught up on recorded episodes of The Following.

Saturday, I got up early to get ready/paint my nails prior to hitting up the afternoon session of WINEFEST! More deets to follow…

Sunday consisted of a hangover, a trip to Costco, napping, watching the entire Ke$ha reality series on Mtv, and walking the dogs.

I had doubled up on workouts all last week, so I gave myself the weekend to recover. Plus, I tweaked my right shoulder, so I let it rest. ‘Doubled up’ meaning, I would do cardio or circuits during my lunch break, then hot yoga at night.

Since that’s a pretty basic weekend, the only mondo thing to share is the recipe for the single serving microwave chocolate chip cookie I’ve been making lately to satisfy my sweet tooth!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 T butter, melted
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk (I sometimes used 1 T applesauce instead)
  • splash vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 3 T flour
  • 2 T choc chips

Here’s what you do:

  1. Melt the butter in a small bowl. Add both sugars, egg, vanilla, and salt. Stir until combined. Add flour, stir. Add choc chips, stir and ‘flatten’ dough in bowl so that it can heat evenly.
  2. Microwave for 40 seconds. Then microwave for additional 10 second increments (I usually only do this once, but I guess it depends on the super powers of your microwave). I generally remove from the microwave when it looks just a touch undercooked, as it continues to cook in the bowl after you remove it from the microwave. Allow a couple minutes to cool, EAT.

Oh crap, I just realized I already posted the recipe here.
