Out and about

I have just been out and about this weekend! Friday I shopped with a friend, yesterday we met up with some other friends, and today we’re going to a different church and some other friends’ home. Fun, but busy day.

Really, though, not too much is going on….I’ve been reading some blogs and saw this wonder ful looking muffin recipe here: http://www.snackingsquirrel.com/

You know that I now have to go and try to make some muffins of my own.

Speaking of baking, I tried the cake mix cookies found here: http://pbfingers.com/2010/04/11/cookie-sunday/. I ended up substituting 1/2 cup of applesauce for the oil and using 2 eggs instead of one. I used a lemon cake mix, and the cookies tasted like Jumbles….but fluffier. The whole house smelled lemony-fresh =D and, because I don’t want to serve anything less than wonderful to my family, I tried a cookie (or two….or four) straight out of the oven. YUM!!!!!

As for my attempt to gain weight in a healthy way to beat my eating disorder, a doctor suggested Ensure shakes. Each one has 250-350 calories and they are full of essential vitamins and minerals and fats. Even hospitals use them!!!! They also taste pretty good, the ones that I’ve tried so far are the dark chocolate and the cafe latte. They don’t taste like “health” shakes, and I’ve been instructed to drink at least 2┬áper day.

That’s about it for me…….gonna head off to church pretty soon….so I’ll catch up with ya’ll later!!!
