Baking & Plays

After the run yesterday, I had so much energy to get things done around the house. Most of it was to bake and get things ready for this coming week. I made M&M cookies.

Home made jelly (raspberry with a hint of home grown blackberries)

And, granola bars, already cooled and just needs to be cut up. I also hard boiled some eggs for a snack through the week.

We had a mini date night last night. I had free tickets to go see a play downtown. It took a lot less time to get there, so we grabbed our tickets, then headed across the street for a snack. We immediately ordered some beers.

The pub was so cute. Here are the taps. They had more beer on tap, this is just a small selection. I had the IPA.

We also had a small snack (we shared). We ordered the cajun chicken strips that we dipped in ranch. They were pretty good. Just the right amount of spice.

Fox & The Goose was the name of this pub. It was great being literally right across the street from the theater.

The theater was extremely small and could probably only hold about 50 people. Here's the set.

This was my first time to a play (non-school). It was enjoyable, just a little slow for me. It was kinda cool to see them change the set in front of us. We did get front row seats. Only 8 of us were at this play.

Afterwards, we were snacky and didn't really want to go home. So, we drove down the street, to the Tower Cafe, and had dessert. Since going to Europe (for my first time) a few years ago, I love sitting outside at night while drinking a cappuccino. So, that's exactly what we did (while we ate the best tasting piece of apple pie).

It was a little chilly outside, but worth it! I love being outside as much as possible. Maybe coming in every few days to shower. This was my first time to the Tower Cafe. Next door is the Tower Theater. They play a lot of indie, artsy movies. I found a few that I want to go see.

It was so beautiful here. There is so much greenery and lights and a fountain.

We had a blast last night. We stayed out waaay past my bedtime (we got home at 11:45). I know, we're a crazy couple!

In case you're getting bored with my non-active daily life, the sweating begins tomorrow at 4am prompt. I'm not looking forward to getting up that early, but I got up at 6 this morning, so I should be pretty tired to go to bed early this evening.

Do you prefer movies or plays? Do you have any small theaters near you?


  1. Yay for m&m cookies and apple pie!!

  2. Your baked goods look delicious! I love plays, probably why I was a theater major for a brief period of time in college. We saw the Evil Dead musical recently at a small, local theater and it was fantastic and hilarious.

  3. Look at you!! Whipping up some yummy stuff! Can you store the jam in the pantry or does it need to be refrigerated?

  4. Those granola bars look awesome! Could you share the recipe again? I looked back at your previous posts about the granola bars, but it appears the link is broken. Thanks!
