And I don’t mean gorging on vegetables. To veg is ‘to engage in relaxing or passive activities’ and that was on the day’s itinerary.
This morning, I woke up to the gentle sounds of the rain falling on my window (I feel a song coming) and was instantly lulled back to sleep. I was on to a very good start. My entire morning was basically spent watching TV with a bag of Royce Chocolate Potato Chips in hand. These chips are a bit of heaven on earth. With the silky, creamy chocolate marrying oh so perfectly with the salty potato chip, who needs any other snack? I savor every bite of these wonderful munchies and don’t mind spending an hour on the treadmill just for them. These chips are the perfect accompaniment to a day of vegging and should be guiltlessly enjoyed.
But those who know me well enough can attest to the fact that I cannot remain idle for long periods of time. So after consuming half of my bag of chocolate potato chips, I decided to head on to the kitchen to whip up something sweet. I wanted to make something I could easily bring along to a scheduled Chinatown photowalk with friends so cupcakes were out of the question. I remembered a recipe from David Lebovitz and decided that his cheesecake brownies would be perfect.
After I pulled these babies out of the oven, I hopped on the treadmill for a 5k run (and also to calibrate my brand new Nike Sensor) so that I could do this…
So make yourselves a batch of these brownies (or run to Rockwell and grab a bag of Royce Chocolate Potato chips) and enjoy the strange rainy weather. Happy vegging everyone!
