Yesterday I went to one of the biggest, most amazing convention/festivals I had been to in a long time – the Maker Faire, in Flushing Meadows Park, in queens. No, this festival had nothing to do with food or fitness. But so many people – myself included – forget that a healthy is not only about food and workouts. We need balance, and fun, and that what my Saturday was about.
I forced myself to put aside the massive homework assignment I have due monday, because I would not have made much progress anyway. Instead, I nerd-ed out all day, at a giant DIY fest.
It was a blast, and I don’t regret doing it. Yes, I may be slightly more anxious now that I have less time to get my work done, be feel so much less guilt. If I had stayed in and worked all day, and still not gotten anything done, I would have felt worse.
In the spirit of the Maker Faire, I did a little ‘making’ of my own. In the form of two loaves.
This came out super moist, not too sweet. I’m not sure if I want to tweak it or not.
This one was bitter and bread-like, not so much like cake – but the consistency is near perfect, and it cuts like a dream.
So, I’m leaving this one up to you:
Which would you rather see the recipe for first? Banana bread or Dark Chocolate Loaf?
I hope the weekend went well for everyone. I think we are finally getting some real autumn weather around here. Now I’m off to finish some homework, and maybe get a little sleep. I will certainly try 😉
What kinds of festivals to you go to for fun?
