Helloooooooo world! How are you doing today? 😉
My week is finally relaxing. Even though we are learning in school, the big tests (except for the finals) are over. What a relief 🙂
By the way, if you’re still in school, when is your last day? Everyone on the East Coast seems to get out of school earlier than we do over here. (6/15 is our last day) So just wondering, when do you get out?
This weekend was in a good way, intense. With a coincidentual pinkness with the clothes we wore, it was pretty funny! 😉
I was also wearing pink that day, so I guess people around here like pink on a sunny day!
I found this poster in my classroom, and it was very inspirational.
“If at first you don’t succeed, you’re in good company”
Lincoln: “Abraham Lincoln’s first business as owner of a dried goods store was a flop. He was later appointed postmaster in his township and had the worst efficiency in the county.”
FDR: “FDR began his public career in public service after flunking out of Columbia Law School. He then decided to run for governor of New York.”
Eisenhower: “Dwight D. Eisenhower was rejected three times for command positions before being appointed Supreme Allied Commander in 1942.”
Truman: “Harry Truman opened a hat and shirt shop at age 35 that went bankrupt after just two years. Truman worked 15 years to pay off the debt.”
Wow! It’s really interesting to find out that famous people like them had rough times before they became presidents! 😉 I thought it was very inspirational to see how even when things are bad at first, it’s going to turn out okay. 😉
After school, we had a surprise birthday party for my friend.
And there just happens to be quite a few couples in this group!
(btw, she is NOT turning 40) 😉
See? They were pink too 😀 And they don’t even go to school with us anymore, so it was just very funny how many of us were coincidentually pink!
And because we are a good team (and a good group of friends), we made a human pyramid!
We’re 17 – 18, but we’re still silly and we’re still kids. 😉
There were many photos taken, and I’ll put up a couple.
I love my friends! 😀
Moving on to my cookings now. I made a few things, and they all turned out fantastic!
It’s the same recipe as she has, but instead of Shredded Coconuts, I put in Cashews and Oatmeal. (that’s all I had, and I’d prefer those two over coconuts) 😉
And you can put these in yogurt for extra sweetness (or chocolatey-ness)
Mmm the marble design…Hey! It’s good 😉
Second, I made Pure Bars!
I read the ingredients on the wrapper, and I put in what they needed 🙂 (except for walnuts; we didn’t have any!) 😦 But it still tasted like a PURE bar!
When it was being mashed up in the bowl. 😉
Thrid, I made Raw Marinara Sauce!
This was one of the key ingredient that made the Sauce taste like it did.
TJ’s Sun Dried Tomatoes! ($3.29; too pricy, I think, but oh well!) It was really helpful, and it made it taste more tomato-y. Anyone know a recipe where I can use this? I have quite a lot left over. 😉
Well, that’s it for this week! Like always, thaaaaanks for coming!! 🙂 (and enjoy the sun this weekend!!!)
