happy hour[s].

in case you haven't been able to tell from the past few, or all, of my posts, i'm pretty friggin' happy. and for some reason, this past week has been especially fantastic despite the lack of auditions. today was no different. i woke up early, which was a little rough, but it was worth it because i made it to hot yoga by 8:30 and took class with another amazing teacher. by 10:30am, i'd already gotten in a great workout, shower and breakfast!

i had a coupon for oatmeal at mcdonald's (surprisingly really good? i had it on my road trip here and remember how much i liked it) and a coffee, which i grabbed for the road on my way to the restaurant.

work today was decent, too. i really like who i worked with and we were actually kind of busy. connor met me afterwards for happy hour. we each had a couple drinks (pear and granny smith cider for me! too good.) and some guac + chips and fried green tomato rings.

2 hours in traffic (and a phone call with my favorite cousin) later, i was back home doing what i do best: baking! i decided to tackle a recipe i've been meaning to make for awhile. tackle might be the wrong word, though, because the whole wheat graham crackers were super easy.

thanks for the apron, michelle :)

the recipe can be found here and i highly recommend that you make these stat. they don't really taste like the nabisco kind or ones from a box, they're more like biscuits? but they're amazing topped with some butter and jam or a little peanut butter.

the process is fairly simple: mix dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ones in another. mix together into a firm dough and put in freezer in plastic wrap to firm for 30 minutes or so. roll out dough and cut whatever shape you feel like!

poke holes with a fork and place on greased baking sheet. bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes and enjoy!

so delicious :) be back tomorrow!
