Excedrine Migraine is the wooooorst. It only lessens my actual headache and tips a hole in my stomach a mile wide.

I really want a coffee too, but that is a terrible idea.

I treated myself to a jawbone yesterday! I’m hoping this will keep me aware of how active I am and how much I need to improve. Let me know if you have one so I can have more accountability!

We are twinsies! I also opted for the black band!

Definitely take it easy the first couple days. This will let you see where your baseline is and help you set realistic goals!

If someone broke into your tent trying to murder you you could just scare them off as a bear.

I had a craving for all things MD today, so I whipped up some Crab Bisque and a Tandy Cake.

I was sure of the ingredients, but not measurements of ingredients for the bisque, so I did some googling, which inspired some giggling as there are a billion different recipes on the web.  I used this official Old Bay Website recipe and it turned out uh-maaayyy-zing!  [I also don’t have access to MD Blue Crab here, but was able to sub some jumbo lump local crab meat.  It was a fine substitute.]

The Tandy Cake recipe was inspired by a Facebook Recipe, but it was tedious and cumbersome, so I used a boxed mix and these baking hacks I learned on tumblr.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to report on the cake(s) until later, as I got started pretty late and it’s not yet set.  I also made two smaller cakes and only had enough chocolate to finish the one, so I’ve got to get more chocolate and finish up the second one tomorrow.  ANYWAY, you can find a Tandy Cake recipe here, and I can answer any questions if you get stumped!  Cheers!

Coming from a state champion baker:

docholligay:

If y’all use a decent box mix and use melted butter instead of vegetable oil, an extra egg, and milk instead of water, no one can tell the difference. I sure as hell can’t. 

Also, if you add a little almond extract to vanilla cake, or a little coffee to chocolate cake, it sends it through the roof. 

This concludes me attempting to be helpful. 

Reblogging this again because I’m about to make a cake today or tomorrow and I’m eager to see if this makes a difference.

aisforaimeekay, I think it’s all true!
