Well, there's an oxymoron, I guess. Sunny and monday? Anyhow, school was a drag and I was really glad to get home and do some baking! I made pumpkin muffins (I'll post the recipe tomorrow, I'm too lazy to put it up now) and added dark chocolate chips and dried figs! I had one for a snack and they were divine, if I do say so myself :]
For dinner, we were supposed to have baked acorn squash. But all the acorns at the supermarket were super huge, like the size of my head! So we bought this kind called buttercup, and they were really good! They were almost as sweet as sweet potatoes. To bake them, I just added a little butter and brown sugar. Mmmm. Had it with a Quorn cutlet brush with olive oil.
And I actually had dessert with dinner tonight, which is A Big Deal for me. I never feel like I'm deserving of a main meal alone, and I especially don't feel like I deserve to treat myself after dinner. But tonight, I made an exception for this
It's a vianetta ice cream cake. It's a once of year thing around here, and I needed to challenge myself. I'm feeling rather guilty now, I did do some crunches. I haven't let myself restrict though, because I keep repeating to myself that this is normal, healthy thing for a 14 year old to do. I shouldn't have to worry about letting myself have dessert for once, none of us should. Good night!
