The long and the short of it

Andrew has encouraged me to post more so he doesn't get the idea that I fell off a cliff or something. This will be very short.

Monday- rest; get referral for physio
Tues - 7 miles in about 59:00
Weds- 3 miles in the snow in ??? (no watch); get appointment for physio

Chocolate Balls (aka Peanut Butter Balls)
  • 1 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 pkg chocolate chips and 1/4 slab parawax
  • Beat egg, add dry ingedients, form into small balls & chill in fridge for an hour or so.
  • Melt chocolate chips and parawax in double boiler and dip chilled balls in hot mixture.
  • Chill or freeze balls and keep cold until ready to enjoy.

We had a beautiful winter blast here today and I'm now working on my Christmas decorations video. I'll be posting it at and you can sign up for a free account to start enjoying all their runner related content and the community that is forming.

And just for Andrew we have todays's word of the day gaffe which seemed appropriate given the kind of jokes he likes to tell!

See you!

Really enjoy your photos...

Happy holidays!

Andrew said...

Oh I know you can't get enough of my jokes!

Remind me to tell you the one about the three strings that went into a bar...

Andrew, that's like the one about the Irishman, Englishman and Australian that went into a bar... the barman says "Is this a joke or something?"

Nice snow. I think I'd be happy enough with 3 miles!

I HATE those stupid measurements you use on your side of the Atlantic.

Who the f*** measures walnuts in cups? In civilised countries we weigh our food stuff before it goes into the bowl! That's what I bought that shiny new kitchen scale for.

*meekly* How much is a cup of walnuts/icing sugar/peanut butter in grams?

I'm sorry, did you say something? I couldn't get past the photo. I'll stop complaining about all the rain here now. ;-)

The best post ever - the receipt finally.

Thomas, cups are a standard unit of measure (volume not weight). According to the web a cup is 48 teaspoons or 16 tablespoons which, by my reckoning is 240ml or 0.24 litres.

FYI... here in Cork "gaffe" also means 'house'. Frequently used as "Come over to me gaffe." :)

Enjoy the snow.
