I was still feeling under the weather on Wednesday, so I did a 20 minute core workout (HardCore Abs) and crawled back onto the couch. I didn't even feel like cooking, so chips/salsa/guacamole became my dinner. Definitely not the healthiest choice, but it was the only thing that even sounded remotely appealing.
Thursday was definitely the low point in terms of this plague/cold. I took a rest day, but at least I managed to eat real food for dinner before returning to my position of hibernating under the fuzzy blanket.

Saturday was glorious. Mr. R&R (who is at the beginning of this lovely plague) and I slept really late and spent the entire day in our pajamas. We were supposed to go to a tamale-making party at Mr. Fix-It and Nacho Nurse's house, but in the interest of not passing this cold on, we stayed home. I may not have worked out or made a dent in the mountain of laundry that seems to have accumulated, but I did test out a bunch of recipes that I've bookmarked/pinned/downloaded over the last few months.
First up was a black bean burger with Sriracha mayo. I used a loose interpretation of this recipe.
The next time I make these, I'm going to try toasting the bread crumbs first in hopes of absorbing the excess liquid. I cooked two of the patties according to the directions and the final product was really delicious...especially when paired with seasoned oven fries and Sriracha mayo (I used a ratio of 1 tbsp Sriracha to 3 tbsp Light Miracle Whip). Yes...I put a little of the Sriracha mayo on the burger and used the rest for dipping purposes!
Cookie Dough Bars. These things were pure deliciousness, although I think they should have been called "Cookie Dough Mousse Bars" since the cookie dough center was more mousse-like than dough-like. They were relatively easy to make. The hardest part was waiting for the center and top layers to set so we could taste them! Believe me when I say that they're worth the wait...and the dishes.

Now it's Sunday and after a solid day of doing nothing useful, I need to go look over some paperwork for my mom, clean my house, do my laundry, and get ready for another full week. Hopefully I can cram in a workout too!
