Sorry this post is a bit late but I have been super busy! Let’s start off with my run, it FINALLY stopped raining so I was able to do my long run outside today. Three miles! Yes I ran the ENTIRE thing 🙂 yup three miles in 29 minutes, I am really happy about it. AND I looked super awesome afterwards:
Please do not be jealous, I know I look good. It was really hot and humid out there, I think my face was red for about an hour after my run, HA. Later on in the evening, after I finished up some work, my friend Lejia came over and we baked:
really we made a LOT of cupcakes, haha.
Lejia wanted to make strawberry cupcakes, and I wanted to make these really yummy looking raspberry cheesecake ones, so we decided to make both.. bad idea, now we have about 65 cupcakes.
notice the grapes, just because you are making dessert doesn’t mean you can’t snack healthy.. haha.
The icing on the strawberry cupcakes did not turn out as we had anticipated
it was a bit runny.
But it was still very good. Next time we make these, or really any other cupcakes, we are going to try and make a healthier version with less butter and sugar.
Lejia had to leave before we started making the cheesecake ones, so I was on my own for those. They were a bit more involved than I thought they were going to be.
But let me tell you… oh man they were worth the effort.
I may or may not have ruined one of them… you had to cook them in a roasting dish with water on the bottom and I may have gotten water in one of the cups:
he looked sad, and I had to throw it away, but the rest of them turned out amazing
I was really excited I got to swirl a few designs into the cheesecakes
After all the cupcakes were finished, we went over to my mom’s house to have dinner and say goodbye to my aunt who was leaving to back to Iran (sad). It’s ok she will be back in March… or sooner. hehe.
We hung out at my mom’s for a few hours, then met up with a few friends for a few drinks and bowling (we really love to bowl haha). I had the best game of my life… 168! haha it must have been all those cupcakes!
alright well that is all for this update! I hope everyone has a good weekend!
