Coming Soon to a Blog Near You

Is is possible to fail a dentist appointment? After my one hour stint in the dentist’s chair today I am convinced that the answer to that question is in fact yes.

I was pretty positive that after my dental hygienist got through with my gums there would be nothing left. While I may have jumped to conclusions a little too quickly, can you really blame me when every mouth swish into the sink was red with blood, and every prick of her little tools tickled my tear ducts like a sappy tragic movie?

Still, it was a really nice feeling to walk out of the dentist’s office with a plan of action. The next time that I visit I will be a prime patient. No bleeding gums or tears here! This is the list of things that I am going to work on: use a softer toothbrush, work on my brush angling, floss regularly, and drink only filtered water (no more nasty chemical water from my school!).

So that’s basically how my first morning of Fall break went for me today. Very promising.

Instead of sharing another cinnamon roll recipe with you guys today (I bet you are very disappointed on that account because it’s not like I haven’t posted a cinnamon roll recipe with you before…), I am going to give a preview of what’s coming soon to a blog near you 😉

1. Cinnamon Roll Recipe. Duh.

2. Vegan Chocolate Cake. Grain-Free too of course. And no coconut flour in sight for those of you who can’t eat/don’t like coconut.

3. My super easy roasted chicken recipe with vegetables. Recipe and instructions.

Before I leave I also want to share a few more recipes in the latest version of Friday Food Finds.

As I mentioned on Wednesday, today I made the decision on what magazines that I am going to subscribe to. My final picks were Eating Well, Fitness, Food Network and Entertainment Weekly. Food Network wasn’t available via my brother’s fundraiser at school so I will need to do that separately (but I’m so excited– thanks for the suggestion Heather!)

Thanks to everyone who left a comment with their suggestions. I looked into each and every one of them. My local library has a sale every few months so I think next time I will have to pick up some back issues of the ones that I didn’t choose. They all sounded so good!

Have an amazing Friday and an even more wonderful weekend everyone 😀

Questions for you:

Do you have The China Study Cookbook?

What are your “Friday Food Finds”?

How do you achieve an *A* at the dentist?

My Weekend Baking Adventures

Did anyone else’s school have fundraisers growing up? Wrapping paper. Candles. Frozen pizzas. Chocolate. Magazines.

My brother is currently in the midst of a magazine fundraiser to raise money for when the high school band goes to Disney this next Spring.

I’m kind of a magazine addict. Really, I should show you all my stacks and drawers of magazines sometime. It’s ridiculous.

Currently I get Eating Well, Cooking Light, Seventeen and Nutrition Action. In the past I’ve also gotten Fitness Magazine and a few other less than stellar choices like Discovery Girls and some dog magazine… From library sales I’ve acquired back issues of magazines as well like Shape, Self, Prevention, Weight Watchers, Health, etc.

wir-magazine-collage

The main point of all of this is that I need some advice this year on what to choose. I’m looking for any suggestions on magazines that you’d think that I’d like. Whether they be food, fitness, fashion, whatever. Just leave your suggestion in the comments and I’d be really appreciative!

Now onto my Week in Review and MIMM post to link-up with Healthy Diva Eats and Clean Eats Fast Feets. Let’s start listing, shall we?

Week-In-Review-Button-Final

  • At school before I left for home on Friday I downloaded Part 1 of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire on audiobook.

  • Unfortunately I didn’t get to listen to it much though because I was too busy trying not to crash while it rained like crazy. Eventually I had to pull over at an exit and wait for the storm to calm down a bit.

  • When I finally got home I was a little wiped out and decided to not go with my parents to the away football game. Instead I stayed in and made a new recipe. Pumpkin Pie Bars!

  • Saturday was spent just lazing around and hanging with Lilly.

  • We also did some grocery shopping and bought some delicious squash.

  • Later my dad rented Now You See Me from Redbox. It was just as good as I expected!

  • Sunday morning I made another pumpkin recipe… Pumpkin Apple Cinnamon Rolls.

  • And promptly burnt my arm when removing the cookie sheet from the oven. Drat.

  • Before I left for school again I also made some roasted chicken and vegetables. I had a bite of the squash from the vegetables, and some of the chicken de-skinned and it was so good!

  • My parents were super nice and decided to drive part of the way back with me later that day. Surprise surprise though when it started to rain again. Hard. Like on Friday we had to pull over. My dad took the lead and my mom and I followed him in my car until we made it until the half way point where we go our separate ways. We stopped at Wal-Mart while there to get some new windshield wipers for my car.

  • Thanks Dad for installing them for me!

  • I didn’t get back at school until it was already dark so I didn’t have any time to write up this post last night and instead focused my efforts on Accounting and Astronomy.

In other news, I only have a three day week thanks to a Fall Break at my school. One day down. Two more to go 😀
