Bikes and Brownies

This weekend has really flown by! I’m sorry that I haven’t been around all weekend, I needed a break from the computer screen! Nothing too exciting happened, anyways.


This afternoon, I went on a bike ride with my friend, Mark. Caitlin and Kelly were supposed to join us on a trail, but bailed last minute. We decided to go anyways!




Instead of driving to a trail, we decided to just ride the airport loop. I got super excited every time a plane flew over. I used to work at the airport, but I still NEVER get sick of seeing them. I always find airplanes amazing.




I know, I’m a nerd. I love airplanes.




We got a late start to the ride, and had to cut it short to make it back before sunset. We rode a total of 13.0 miles in about an hour. The winds were making us SO slow! There had to be gusts around 20mph.




I also saw a random brown cow.




On the ride back, Mark and I were talking about what type of food we were each going to eat when we got home. After discussing various amazing sounding foods, we both decided we were going to make pasta. I suggested we make dinner at my place since we both wanted the same thing.


I bought this new type of pasta, Garden Delight, which has a full serving of vegetables.




We basically started throwing random contents from my fridge into the pot. It started with pasta and ended up with:

  • grilled chicken
  • halved grape tomatoes
  • peas
  • garlic salt
  • lemon pepper
  • smart balance butter



It actually worked out really well! It was fun to throw a bunch of randomness in. The pasta had a great flavor, and I was glad that there wasn’t really any sauce to mask the taste.




Between the two of us, we finished off the entire box of pasta. I had seconds.




YUM! The best part, was that it cost around $3.00 for the entire meal. Yay for cheap eats!


After dinner, we made some delicious-buy-one-get-one-free-from-publix brownies.





I had a little piece with some Cake Batter ice cream. A-ma-zing!




I’m a sucker for sweet stuff! 🙂


Okay, I’m off to finish up some school work before the crazy work week starts! Gaaaah.
