Turtle Pizzas & Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

4 Feb

Saturdays are the best day ever!

But first lets back up.

The groundhog day party was so fun, and our food was a huge success. For our food-shaped-like-an-animal we made Turtle Pizzas! We took some pre-made pizza dough and shaped it into small turtle shapes.

We covered the “shells” with the pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and chopped green peppers. Then we put an olive sliced in half on the head for eyes

They looked cute and tasted awesome too!

Yesterday was an amazing rest day on the exercise front. I needed a day off and it felt great to take one!

This morning I woke up and ran for an hour. I felt good and there were some great parts of the run where I definitely felt strong and a little bit fast.

After running and a shower I decided to bake another Pinterest find. Andes mint chocolate cookies. They go from looking like this…

To this!andescookies2

YUM. They are so easy to make too (only four ingredients). They taste a little bit like thin mints but are super fluffy from the cake mix and thickness of the cookie.

Well, I’m off to watch some stuff on the DVR and relax!

Enjoy your Saturday!

    I LOVE the turtle pizzas. The cookies, well, I would love them, but I need to lose some pounds!!!

    Sounds like a wonderful run. I love those, they seem to be coming few and far between for me!

    Hurrah for a great week of exercise. No Zumbathon this time round?

      I try to remind myself that bad runs make the wonderful runs that much more wonderful. πŸ™‚ No zumbathon this weekend thank goodness! The next one will probably be in a few weeks!
