Dodging the office goodies was a bit harder than anticipated. Instead of the typical store bought treats the common kitchen table was filled with homemade cookies, blondies, biscuits and various other treats. All homemade, all fresh and all fantastic looking.
I was good and resisted, but when snack time hit I decided to sample a piece of a chocolate chip blondie.
I was tempted to purchase pre-made crust at Publix, but opted to prep a batch of Jenna’s Best Pizza Dough instead.
- 1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 C Ground Flax Seed
- 1 T Chia Seeds
- 1 T Dried Basil
- 1 T Oregano
- 1 packet Yeast
- 1 1/3 C Warm Water
The dough rested over night and after work I split it in half. One portion went in the freezer and the other was rolled out to a beautiful thin crust.
I had two slices of my homemade pizza with a side Spinach Salad.
This treat just goes to show you how co-workers can surprise you. The Vegan Peanut Butter Cup was whipped up by one of our developers last night on a whim after a football game. He didn’t use a recipe and just went with what he thought would taste good.
I was a little thrown off when he said vegan because he does not seem the vegan type, but I guess that goes to show you not to judge a book by its cover. He told me he is not a vegan, but likes to experiment with vegan baking and is trying to go vegetarian for the month of October. Who knew? Its amazing the things you can learn from co-workers if you just take the time to talk about life instead of work. 🙂
Alright, I have an early 7 mile tempo run planned in the morning and my bed is calling my name, but before I go here is my nightly plea to go VOTE. 🙂
