Me The Chef

What a fun, effort-filled weekend!

Finally, all those cookbooks I bought and the recipes I clipped from magazines are being put to good use. And I'm really pleased with how things turned out. I was able to cook a good baked cod dish, I made lemon bars that tasted a lot better than it looked (I think I cut them into bars too soon), and the best one of all was a chicken dish that I cooked on Sunday, that was so easy yet tasted so good.

Marc had gotten a bag of chocolate chip scone mix a few days ago, and we also cooked that to see what it tasted like. Safe to say, I think we're going to be getting that scone mix a lot from now on. Yum!

To burn off all those calories we ingested, Marc and I went for a run on Saturday afternoon. We went all the way to the beach and did some exercises at the outdoor gymnasium there. (Note to self: We should go there more. It's just a great vibe to be around all these gymnasts, and to give all the different exercise bars a try.)

On Sunday after mass, we went for a short hike (that I want to do all the way through) in Topanga Canyon. We put in about a mile before deciding to turn back since it was getting too dark. For sure though, we're going to be hiking that trail again, and all the other trails in that park. It's such a wonderful way to cap off the weekend and start a new week right. I definitely feel energized and in a great mood today.
