The Art of Vegging

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.

it's just wrong not to open this box immediately

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.

I'm not really fan of brownies of cheesecake but these are just irresistable!

These brownies will not disappoint. They are very dense and moist and the combination of the sweet chocolate and savory cream cheese is quite decadent.

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!
