First, the desert. My skin. One of the downfalls of winter running is the dry skin. It's bad enough anyhow in the winter, but after running outside in the blustery wind this weekend and this morning, my face and hands are so dry. Yeck. I put on so much lotion before I went to bed last night, I almost slipped out from under my sheets.
And now, the dessert. Much more exciting topic. I'm in charge of dessert for Christmas Eve (I think my mom puts me in charge of this because she knows we can always get pies from Baker's Square if I screw up). I'm trying to decide between: oreo cheesecake (Cheesecake Factory recipe), boston creme pie, candy cane pie, and this double chocolatey cheesecake thing. Any suggestions? I think I should probably make two given the number of people we have.
I ran three miles this morning. We got a few inches of snow overnight and it was still snowing, so it was like a little winter wonderland. I felt less lovey about the snow when I was slipping and sliding while trying to run up a steep hill. Might be time to break out the yak trax.
