Not only am I pictured in my lovely outfit, but you can see me at the starting line, too! I also love how her son told her that I was planning on running 3.14 miles on Pi day last week and that made it in the article. It just goes to show that anything I say in class can and will be told to their parents!
Also, am I the only one who can't access my Google Reader anymore? Where did it go!?! I know that Google decided to get rid of it, but I thought it wasn't going away until July! Makes for a very boring lunch period...I usually read the blog posts I missed during the morning.
Oh well, I guess I can actually get some papers graded or something during lunch now :)
I try to share healthy food on here, but today, I've got something to satisfy your sweet tooth!
I saw this mix for Orangesicle cookies from Pillsbury in the grocery store and just had to try it! Last summer, I tried the Pink Lemonade cake mix and frosting for cupcakes. They were incredibly good! Very sweet, a little tart, and the perfect taste of summer. While it may not feel like summer where you are, I feel like it's non-stop summer down here in Florida. I was definitely in the mood to see if these cookies would taste like one of my favorite summer treats: Orange Creamsicles!

Very, very tasty! I'd like to think that since they are "Orange"sicle they count as a fruit. Wishful thinking, huh? These were also husband-approved, too, but he usually likes anything I bake (except anything mint...bad for me because I love mint desserts!).
I frosted a few of the cookies with the Orangesicle icing. It made them extra sweet (perfect for me) and a little softer than those without. Either way tastes great, but I do recommend the icing.
There is also a mix from Pillsbury for Pink Lemonade again this year, as well as another flavor I have yet to try: Key Lime! I found them on the baking aisle at Wal-Mart, but I imagine you can find these at any grocery store.
Question for you: What's your favorite summer-y flavor?
I'd have to go with pink lemonade and watermelon. Just thinking about those tastes make me want to be on a beach!!
