I'm so glad I married someone who loves to read as much as I do. Really, fellow readers are hard to find. I haven't really read a good book in a long time, but lately I've read Black Heels to Tractor Wheels (Pioneer Woman's book about meeting her husband, a very entertaining and light read!) and am currently reading French Women Don't Get Fat, which I am loving.
Later, I made dinner and randomly decided to make chocolate soufflés in my convection oven. That thing has no limits! This was my first attempt at any kind of soufflé and it really wasn't as hard as people make it out to be. I used a darker chocolate, but I think next time I'll try a little lighter one. They turned out pretty well! I served them with some homemade vanilla whipped cream. I'll post a recipe soon for these. :)
This morning my stomach was hurting from too much soufflé and cream and I felt like a zombie, due to not getting enough sleep. But I decided to go for my run anyways and even though it rained on me a little, I ended up running 4 miles! I have now beat my record! I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but that's the furthest I've ever run in my whole life. I hope I can continue to get better. My legs weren't even hurting at the end.
Tomorrow is Christopher's birthday party, which is going to be a pretty big event! Lots of Cubans in one place, food, probably dancing... pretty standard stuff. I'm going to be making lots of Oreo Truffles tonight to bring to the party.
Also, there are some changes on the blog! I added a "Recipes" and "Life in the 305" tab to get a little better organized and just for easy blog browsing. Hope you enjoy them, and I'll be constantly updating those sections, so please keep checking back. :)
