“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.” - Mark Twain

Another great summer vacation day!

We started off by doing a little shopping and then had lunch at the Kooky Canuck! I used my FourSquare discount and saved $3.00! I ordered the Cajun Cornish Hen with Beef Stroganoff (it was a side, crazy, I've always thought of it as an entree!) and salad. I ate most of the salad, a leg from the chicken, and some of the stroganoff. I brought the rest home for later.
I wore my new shoes I bought at Sam's yesterday. They are Skecher's tone-ups. The heels didn't bother me, but the straps were rubbing on my skin a little uncomfortably. They may just need some breaking in. I'm going to wear them some more before we leave for Las Vegas.
I did some online shopping today. I've learned to never take the first price I find! I found 5th row tickets to KA, a cirque du soleil show at the MGM Grand, for $100+ less than ticket master was offering. I was stoked!

I've also gotten to the point new bras are necessary. I've moved them to the last hook and they are still loose. I went to and they were having a buy 2 get 2 free sale and 5 panties for $25. I was about to check out and I remembered to check for a coupon code! I found one and it saved me $25!!! Because of the extra savings I opted for next day delivery. I want to get them before we left and now it wasn't going to cost extra! When it was all over, with the sale and coupons, I save $142.50!

We bought some peaches from The Peach Shed several days ago. Blaine has been wanting a peach cobbler. I peeled and sliced about 8 peaches. I put them, a stick of butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a teaspoon of almond extract in a glass dish. I baked them for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I didn't do it, but I suggest covering with foil!

Next I mixed a cup of sugar, cup of self-rising flour, and a cup of sugar all together (you might want to add a pinch of salt, I forgot). I poured it on top of the peaches. I baked this in a glass 9x13 dish for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. You want to make sure that it's nice and brown!

I like eating it with a little vanilla ice cream! I will definitely be ready for a fill when we get back!

Today's food: 100 calorie cookies, 100 calorie pretzels, Cornish hen, salad w/ranch, beef stroganoff, Cajun chicken, shrimp, and sausage pasta, mashed potatoes, cucumber salad, peach cobbler, and vanilla ice cream
