Did everyone have a good New Year's Eve? I rang in the new year with some awesome chocolate and a 5k! So without further ado, let's jump into WIAW!
Mid-morning I snacked on some kale chips, and then at lunch time I dug into this plate:
After lunch, it was chocolate time! My mom and I make homemade truffles every year, and let me tell you what, they are the best truffles on the planet. And no, I'm not exaggerating one bit. ;) I would say they aren't the slightest bit healthy as the only two ingredients are chocolate and heavy cream, but we all know that chocolate, with all those antioxidants, is practically a health food. Or if you don't buy that, will you at least buy that these little gems are good for the soul?
About half an hour before we headed to the race, I had my pre-run snack of a piece of toast with peanut butter and banana.
My official time was 25:46 (which I was pretty proud of considering everything!), and I got second in my age group.
We had planned to go to Panera afterwards (one of my favorite restaurants ever!), but it had closed early for New Year's Eve. I was so sad! We ended up going to a Thai restaurant instead and took the food to go. I ordered some kind of a shrimp salad that sounded like it had a lot of interesting goodies in it, but it was awful! It was basically a pile of rice noodles with a few shrimps. The shrimp wasn't seasoned at all, and the rice noodles tasted like they had beed doused in nothing but fish sauce. Especially after that run, it wasn't the slightest bit appetizing. Instead, I took out the shrimp and dipped them in hot sauce.
I hope you all had a wonderful and safe evening last night and that 2014 brings you joy and good times! I am so thankful to have your continued love and support. <3
Have you ever dipped truffles, fruit, etc.? What is the strangest thing you've had that was covered in chocolate?
