Being sick isn’t fun :(

Filed under: April Posts — crazyrunnerchick @ 2:41 pm

So yesterday, i tried some bean sprouts in my lunch, and they definately didn’t taste good XP, nor did they sit well with me.  After play practice i threw my guts up and then some.  I was not a happy camper. So, I stayed home today from school since i still feel a bit nausious.

But something good still came out of it.  Since throwing up everything in my stomach the night before, i was really hungry, but i didn’t want anything to make me more sick so i thought pancakes would be a good bet.  So, i made up a quick batch of pancakes and they came out like real pancakes!  I made them perfect this time!

I need to get better at taking pictures... hehe

These are officially my sick day pancakes– or just pancakes because you really don’t need to eat them when you’re sick ^^
The ingredients are:
— 1/2 cup of flour
–1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
–1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk
–1/4 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
–stevia or sugar to taste
Steps:
1. Start by heating up your pan on medium heat
2. Mix the flour and baking powder
3. In a separate bowl, mix the almond milk and the apple cider vinegar
4. Mix all of the ingrediants together and add in your sugar or stevia or whatever you want.  If you want you can put in blueberries, banana, or chocolate chips 🙂
5. Cook them like you would any other pancakes.  Pour in the batter and when the little bubbles come to the top, flip them.
-Makes about 2 pancakes
I thought they were pretty good, but i accidently cooked one side for too long (wasn’t paying attention) so it got a little burnt :(.  that’s okay.  I’ll do better next time. 
Also, later this week, i think i might make a variation on my no-bake cookies.  Like adding in chocolate chips or peanut butter :P.  I love peanut butter– best stuff on the planet… besides chocolate.  Also, I might actually add a tofu recipe.  Big fan of tofu right here.
What’s your favorite food?  i could never decide… All i know is that it’s definately NOT bean sprouts.  Yuck.

College Visit :)

Filed under: April Posts — crazyrunnerchick @ 9:18 pm

Hi 🙂

So i visited a college today and i really liked it there. It was a Christian college and I truly enjoyed the atmosphere and the chapel.  Everything was brick and it had really pretty scenery– not to mention a good teaching program which is great considering i want to be an English teacher when I’m older.  This may be the college i go to, so I’ll be sure to apply 🙂

It was kind of a sad day despite the college visit.  A year ago to this day my doggie, Jackie, died of (we suspect) an anurism (sp?).  She was probably one of my favorite dogs since I had her since she was a puppy that we picked up at a farm when i was in the fourth grade.  When she died, i cried like I’ve never cried before!  I was really upset…  But I know that she’s in heaven now, and I’ll see her again one day.

She was such a fantastic friend

Despite all that heartache and such and the fact that she was irreplaceable, we did end up getting another dog because her sister, Heather, was getting pretty depressed at the loss of her sister.  So, we got her a Jack Russell puppy to get her mind off of it.  His name is Gizmo, and he’s just an addition to our family, not a replacement. 

Don't be fooled by that sweet expression 😉

Anywho, since i really don’t have any recipes or other cool stuff to share, I’ll share this:
Chocolate-covered Katie is holding a vegan bake sale online to help the people of Japan.  Even though I’m sure that there’s not really anyone that reads this blog, I might as well try and spread the word.  Here’s the link  if you’re interested:
Well, I’m off to bed because i gotta get up early tomorrow to run.
