Blog 77: Germs and St. Patricks Day Plans?Today started off just like any other day, taking care of baby! She makes my mornings so much better! ^_^
And then I got my gym time in, I always eat breakfast after doing exercises because I think its easier on your stomach and I don't feel weighed down or sick. But I do drink a lot of water before and during my gym routine. And like I said before, I actually have a gym in my basement now, just because I hate going to public gyms because the whole time I feel the need to put hand-sanitizer on through out the whole workout. Even my friends use my gym all the time because they feel the sameway lol. I know.....Thanks to my Mum, I am very cautious of germs, ugh! lol xD
How do you guys feel about that? When you walk into a Gym or even a Store or a Restaurent, or just about anywhere, do you freak out over germs? Let me know! lol.
So after breakfast, I got laundry and shopping done. My whole house looks like some kinda alien world with all the St. Patricks Day decorations everywhere lol. I g
Acai Banana Coconut Smoothie
So this is what I'm having for breakfast! I feel in love with this smoothie after watching Soul Surfer. It is amazingly delicious and good for you. And a month ago I went on the Acai diet which involves this drink and I can tell you its the best thing you can do because I've lost my baby weight which wasn't much too lose because I am very petite, I always have been and always had trouble gaining weight and it got really tough when I use to go to the Gym but since moving the States, I actually got my own personally Gym in my basement! Which I would recommend because up until recently, you don't realize what kind of germs and fungus that cover Gyms if they are not cleaned properly.....I know, you can call me a worry bug or maybe the better name would be my Mum! lol xD
But even if your not trying to lose weight this is REALLY good for you!

Blog 76: UpcomingJust got done submitting my Yorkshire Pudding recipe. I am still in shock that the US doesn't serve Yorkshire Pudding! If they do, please give me the restaurent's name. It seems criminal or sacrilegious or something lol.
Well things are all good and baby is 2 months old now. I done my spring cleaning early because March 17, I am having a little St. Patricks Day Party with friends. I'll also be submitting recipes after the party. And March 20th is my 23rd Birthday! My friends are taking me to a Spa! And then I'm gonna have dinner and cake and spend the rest of the day with my family. And Easter will be coming up soon which I am getting excited for because this is my daughter's first Easter! ^___^
Although she won't have candy or won't be able to hunt for eggs for sometime but at least I get to dress her up!
So not much else to talk about, what about you guys? Anything new? Even if you are just viewing my blogs and page for the first time, go ahead and answer anyway
Yorkshire Pudding Recipe
I remember when I first learned to cook, somehow, something always went wrong when I tried making Yorkshire Pudding but now I've become a pro lol. Anyways, I haven't had Yorkshire Pudding in forever!! And apparently in the US its not that populer :\
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup of milk, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of beef drippings
1. Don't forget the roast beef! lol
2. Mix flour and salt together until blended. Make a well in the flour, add the milk, and whisk until consistent. Beat the eggs into the batter. Add water and beat again until the mixture is light and frothy. Set aside for an hour.
3. When the roast beef is ready to come out of the oven, ready the mixture. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C)
4. Pour off drippings from roast beef and measure out desired amount, about 1/2 cup should do. Pour drippings into a 9x12 inch baking dish and place into the oven until the drippings
