Friday Favorites–Candy from China

Hello! How’s your day going?

I had to head back to the mall to order the washing machine today (yesterday I did comparison shopping and decided too late). This worked out though because the mall has a Farmer’s Market in the parking lot and I picked up a cauliflower for some Cauliflower Pizza Crust action this weekend.

Friday Favorites

It was not easy to find sweets in China. Even their baked treats tasted A LOT less sweet than what we’re used to in the US. They use less sugar so the cookies and bars were very mild.

But, these candies I found on the last day are really really good!

Question: What is your favorite thing this week?

    haha no wonder why you liked that candy wrapped in a black paper – it is not chinese, but japanese. They have a good selection of sweets and lots of their treats are imported to China.

    What exactly is that candy?? Is it chocolate??
    My favorite thing this week is that I made it to the gym 2 nights this week for some awesome workouts!! :)
    I’ve never made cauliflower crust before… is it easy?

    Hi Monica. I haven’t commented on any of your China posts, so i wanted to say that I’m so happy for you for making that trip happen. It sounds like it was amazing, and I’m sure will become even more so as you continue to reflect on it. Also, on your running trots post, seriously? Never a close call till now? Lucky lady!! Also, since you were out of the country, not sure if you heard about Meg Cross Menzies, a mom and avid runner who was killed by a drunk driver this past Monday. Tomorrow people all over the world are dedicating their runs to #megsmile. In case you didn’t know about it, I thought it would be something you were interested in. It definitely looks like it’s banned together the running community.

    Is it sad that my favorite thing about this week is that it’s finally the weekend? It was just one of those weeks…

    My real favorite thing is my new Gaiam BalanceBall chair (which I blogged about yesterday if anyone is thinking of getting one).

    Happy weekend!!!
