Today was my first day of the 30 day challenge! I actually just finished. 10 pushups, 10 sit ups, 10 air squats. x5. I really liked it today. I didn’t do full pushups all the way through, but that’s ok. It was a noiseless workout. No bouncing around finding every single little squeak the floor can possibly have!!
And chocolate…you should probably know that chocolate is the number one thing that I am craving right now. Its an awful craving to have because you can never have enough. You eat one little fun sized chocolate and then another and you have to physically restrain yourself from having the whole bag. Needless to say, I found a really great kind of chocolate. It is a great little piece of creamy goodness. This is one of the few fruit center chocolates that I enjoy.
Here is how I feel about snow…and incidentally about chocolate. 🙂
This is just a post about what is making me happy at the moment. I am feeling very giddy and I don’t know why! You all get the fruit of my giddiness- pictures!
I’ll finish this post off with something productive and beneficial to you, a recipe. It is a kind of a rainy day here in Ohio. There is still snow on the ground, but it is windy and snow-raining. It is more rain than snow. It is very beautiful- to me. Pretty sure my friends don’t like this weather…I do. I love any kind of rain:) This recipe is called Cherry pretzel dessert. It is not the same as pretzel salad, though. This is a church potluck favorite:)
2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 melted butter
1 Tsp vanilla
2 packets Dream Whip
1 cup milk
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 can pie filling of choice
- In a large bowl, combine pretzels, sugar and butter; set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Press remaining mixture into an ungreased 13×9-in. dish.
- In a large bowl, beat the whipped topping mix, milk and vanilla on high speed 4 minutes or until soft peaks form. Add cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar; beat until smooth.
- Spread half over crust. Top with pie filling and remaining cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with reserved pretzel mixture. Refrigerate overnight. Yield: 16 servings.
