PB and J

September 22, 2010 at 4:38 pm 2 comments

The past few days I’ve been experiencing (more) intense (than usual) peanut butter cravings, and inspired by Amelia’s cooking class, I did some kitchen experimentation last night. Yes, friends, I have combined 3 awesome concepts (peanut butter, jam, and cookies) into 1 awesome polygamous marriage of baked goods.

4 ingredient pb & j cookies

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup raw cane sugar

1 egg

jam (yes, jam is 1 ingredient)

Mix first 3 ingredients, and drop onto baking sheet using an ice cream scoop. Using a small spoon, make a shallow depression in each cookie. Fill with jam. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let cool on sheet for one minute. Eat. 4 in one night.

Moving on to running, last Thursday we headed back to Point Grey High in the rain for 4x1600m. I tried to be a lot more consistant than last time, and ended up getting a wee bit faster each time.

So glad to have these done! Now that we’re within 3 weeks from race day, I can’t believe how soon Oct 10 is creeping up! Sunday marked our final real long run, and my 2nd longest run ever (aside from the BMO marathon), finishing up 35 km at the new UBC running room.  It didn’t feel too too bad! Those last 3km were definitely a bit of a struggle, but the next day I hardly felt sore at all, and ran an easy 11km on Tuesday feeling pretty fresh. I’m about to head out for a quick 10km with Evy and Andrea before hitting the BCMC trail. Taper tantrums please stay away.
