weary weather and weekends

ImageHonestly, this weather is really getting on my last nerve. The more it rains, the higher my chances off getting called off of work is. I woke up at my usual 10am to a beautiful and cute message from Bryan saying how much he missed me, which put me in such a good mood. I laced up my asics and headed out for a morning run, which I could barely make happen. 50 degrees this morning did not make it any better! I hate morning runs–my energy is always so low, my legs aren’t entirely stretched so they hurt when I run, and my head hurts afterwards because I run on an empty stomach. I did push myself and finished though, so I was proud for that! The weather today has been drizzling and pouring and on and off, and no warmer than 50 degrees, what is up with this May weather?! I showered after my run and had a big salad, the usual veggie burger/onion/tomato/romaine combination. I was getting ready for work since it was 2:30 and my boss Z hadn’t called me off yet, but just as I arrived and said hi to him, he told me to go home because it was so slow. Things like that truly piss me off, especially because I wasted my time going there and set aside time in my day to work. Although I do love my job there, I need a new one. and fast.

ImageMy mom tried cheering my up because it was obvious she could sense my frustration, so she made me my favorite no bake cookies! literally takes 10 minutes using the stove top and they cool instantly!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 8 Tablespoon(s) (1 stick) margarine or butter
  • 1/2 Cup(s) Low-Fat Milk
  • 1/3 Cup(s) baking cocoa
  • 3 Cup(s) Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)

In large saucepan, combine sugar, margarine, milk and cocoa. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue boiling 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in oats. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm. Store tightly covered.

 

Some people really don’t like the texture or mouth feel of this food, but I honestly love it, especially the taste. and the fact that you can cook them in 90 degree weather since it doesn’t use the oven! Definitely give them a try.

So, it’s not really a happy friday, but Bryan will be back soon and hopefully it’ll be a happy weekend?
