Cookology

Just a warning that this will be a really long post. 😉  The boy and I went to Cookology last night at Dulles Town Center for a bread workshop.  We had a great time!  First we made a French Baguette and then Chocolate Cherry English Scones or Blueberry English Scones.

The set-up:

Back to the baguette, first proof complete (if you poke it and it doesn’t pop back up the proof is done):

We got up early this morning and went out for a nice sustained 30 minute run.

 

Breakfast (420 cal): Chocolate cherry oats topped with a little peanut butter, and a glass of chocolate soy milk w/ protein on the side.

Lunch (444 cal): Not sure why, but a nice bowl of cereal was calling me this afternoon.  My bowl included: puffed kamut, fiber one, Total, banana, almonds, 1/2 scoop designer whey, and a cup of soy milk.

Dessert (255 cal): I baked the rest of the scones this evening and set one of the chocolate cherry ones out for me – the rest are going to the boy’s office. 😉  I paired mine with a little chocolate froyo. So good.
