S is for Saturday

Whew…what a Saturday! I’ve been going going all day. I almost bailed on my roommate this morning, who I had made plans to go to spin class with, but eventually the exercise addiction in me beat the temptation to sleep another hour under my cozy covers. I downed a bowl of Greek ‘n’ Granola and then we were out the door to The Resort. I was a bit scared about taking a spin class today, as I woke up extremely sore from yesterday’s yoga, but I managed to power thought the entire hour.

Spin. Shower. Shop. Study. That was the plan for today. However, the studying might have to wait until Sunday…priorities, right?

I gulped down another Carrots ‘N’ Cake iced latte after exercising, rummaged up a little lunch from my empty fridge, and then it was time to shop. I went to FOUR grocery stores today. I told you I was going going going all day. I didn’t even find the one thing I was searching for. I then folded my massive mound of clean laundry before putting my groceries to use in the kitchen.

I made boxed brownies. I know, I’m ashamed, but if you knew how sinfully scrumptious these were, you would make them too!

While the brownies baked in the oven, I made dinner:

Brown Rice, Stir-fried Broccoli, Carrots, Red Onion and Teryaki Tofu

Cook 1/2 cup brown rice in 1 cup water for ~35 minutes. Stir-fry firm tofu in a bit of vegetable oil and TJ’s Soyaki Sauce. Remove from wok and add broccoli, carrots and onions. Stir-fry until soft. Layer rice, veggies & tofu in a big bowl and gobble up.

After 25 minutes, the decadent brownies were ready to be removed from the furnace.

I prefer to use a muffin pan because I am able to use my magic muffin papers — easy, crumb-free eating & clean-up!

Of course I sampled one fresh from the oven. Truffles they are indeed! Well, my of-age roommates are doing of-age activities tonight, so Mama Hill is at home doing mother-like activites.

See ya’ll Sunday (sometime)…
