Surprises. Don’t you just love them? The UPS guy delivered late last night and dropped this package of samples from Bob’s Red Mill

Samples From Bob's Red Mill

I went wild! Ted was thinking.. “what has she ordered now?”  I eat the 10 Grain Cereal and the Steel Cut Oats usually once per week, so those tested by Moi and prove delish! As for the 4 other items:  Polenta, Milled Hemp Seed, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, and Whole Grain Blue Cornmeal…I’ve never tried them. I’ve never even heard of blue cornmeal.  So here’s a warning guys… there is going to be a lot of test baking going on in the Apple Crumbles kitchen.  The best part is that each one of these packages has at least one wonderful looking recipe on the back .

Thank you Matt, at Bob’s Red Mill for being so kind and sending samples for me to try.

Now for Tuesday AM news.

Did some incline work on the T/M for 35 minutes.  Worked back and triceps today:

  • 8 sets x 15 of all:
  • Mid pulley rows and tricep kick backs
  • Lat pull downs and tricep presses
  • 4 x 10 of the following:
  • Bent over rows + tricep dips.

Shane and I went for a 3 mile run/walk. On our way home,we went through the MVCC parking lot.  They section the lot off with gates for pass holders.  As we were walking through, I thought we would be able to get from lot to lot via the “grassy” dividers.   As it so happens, those dividers are where the plows dump the snow.  What’s fun for Shane isn’t always considered fun for Jo.   I tried to pick the shortest bank to climb and get over. Going up was amazingly ok,but on the way down, a leaping, sprinting dog doesn’t help the “slow and easy” descent.  We made it, covered in snow and the sneakers were filled. 

Breakfast was as follows:

Pre work out shake: 1 scoop Chocolate Jay Robb

Post work out meal ( about 2 hrs later):  1 VPX + 3/4 cup Frozen Raspberries.  Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal + 1/2 pear, peeled and chopped to cook with the cereal + 1/4 pear chopped and added to cereal after cooking along with 1 TBS nuts and raisins.   The other 1/4 pear, Ted had to help me eat. Too much PEAR!

I’m down loading emails for work at home and forwarding them on to Sue if they need printing or immediate action.  This is just in case I don’t have my work computer for the entire morning.  We shall see!

One more thing… tonight I have a guest post…tune back and learn something great about fruits!
