The Home Stretch! Wednesday October 29, 2008

I’m counting down the days! Getting plenty of sleep, running easy, stretching, icing, and taking ibuprofen to keep my IT band happy. Below: the “stick”, ibuprofen, and an ice pack.

Sugar Cookies! I used a basic sugar cookie recipe (mmm butter!) and some mini halloween cookie cutters. However, I had the toughest time with the dough – it kept sticking to the table top! Maybe my kitchen was too warm? After a few cookie cut-out attempts, I just made round cookies (with sprinkles!)

My Dinner: Trader Joe’s turkey chilli, ak-mak whole wheat crackers (with lots of teddy peanut butter!) and baked sweet potato fries with ketchup. Plus some pretty gerbera daisies from Whole Foods (didn’t eat those!)
