More leftovers

November 27, 2010

Woke up this morning and went on my final Phoenix run. We only did 3 miles but Bernie was booking it. On my sore legs I tried to keep up but he was running like 7 min miles.

Pre-run snack whole wheat toast with apricot jam.

After getting ditched I made oats for everyone. This was a really good batch

-1/2 c steel cut
-1/4 c rolled
-1 tbsp brown sugar
-half banana
-about 2 c water eyeballed
– 2 handfuls frozen bloobs (blueberries)

Heat first 5 ingredients together for 3 mins, stir halfway, and then add the bloobs for some melty, frozeny blooby goodness.

Basically sat on then couch all day after that. It was glorious just doing nothing. For lunch I had reinvented leftover. Open face turkey sandwich and mashed po-tots.

-whole wheat toast
-cold turkey (I decided I like the leftover turkey better cold)
-cranberry sauce
-green bean casserole

It was all the flavors I love at thanksgiving on a sandwich. Delish. I want to learn how make a slimmed down cranberry sauce I love it so much I could set it all the time.

For a snack later I had more raspberries. Dinner will be a special post coming up!

Atomic horseradish and Harry Potter

Too bad for Nova’s loss today :(… Not sure whether to be glad because years where they start off super they fizzle out or to take this disappointment as an indicator of the season. Can someone get a statement from Shane Clark again? Thanks.

This afternoon I had a snack of raspberries. One of my favorite flavors of all time.

Then dinner was leftovers with a twist. Spicy turkey lettuce wraps

-leftover turkey
-part skim mozzarella
-sirracha (sp?)
-big red lettuce leaves

Melted the mozz, scooped on the ciarracha (new sp?). They were good.

On the side I had green bean casserole and stuffing (which I over served myself… Only ate about half)

After that is when we busted out… dun dun dun… The shrimp ring.

And atomic horseradish.

Atomic horseradish challenge.

After cleansing the sinuses. Stings the nostrils. We went to see HP7 which I loved!! I almost cried in the first 10 mins and then sobbed at the end. I really didn’t remember much from the book except for tidbits. Ignorance is probably bliss because I am usually disappointed about what they leave out when making the movies. I can’t wait for the next one. I am sure there will be more tears :/

good ole rocky top?

Woke up this morning to my mom and brother getting ready for long run part deux. preworkout snack was a south beach diet cinnamon raisin protein fit granola bar. i love these bars lots of protein and tastes like a cinnamon roll– you know but in the form of dry granola but it does have an icing strip on it.

we ran 6.5 miles at a little over 9 min pace. my legs were hurting by the end. and are pretttttty preeeeeetty sore now. I love running here though. Very flat really nice run weather lots of new houses and mountains to gaze out.

For breakfast I had a cup of coffee with peppermint mocha flavor and some milk and some of this delicious egg casserole Same made.

i believe it has

  • egg
  • hashbrowns
  • peppers
  • ham
  • cheese
  • For lunch I had a bunch of fun samples at Sams club. I think they were hAving a frozen pizza party because there were at least 3 kinds. Love samples!

    Chips and salsa
    Deli roll thing
    Chicken noog

    Now I’m watching Nova play Tennessee. Go cats..

Turkey trot x2

November 25, 2010

Even though I got in super late last night (130 am eastern time?- ish) I woke up at an ungodly hour.  It was about 6 am phoenix time.  Thank god i figured out my brothers wifi password (first try! and “she knows the code”).  At 730 my brother, Bernie, and mom woke up.  I had this nature’s path granola bar as a preworkout snack.. pumpkin spice i have only come across once but it is chewy and delicious and has pepitas in it so slightly salty. soo good.

i also had this cup of ff milk.

we then headed over to his neighborhoods annual turkey trot. A 3 mile walk/run around the hood.  Bernie ended up “winning” the trot, then my mom, then i came tagging along behind.  I havent worked out since last friday and the pace was faster than i usually would run. We ran it in about 25 mins.  When we were done Bernie thought we hadn’t done enough so we agreed to do it again if we slowed down the pace. The next 3 miles were done at a leisurely 9:30 pace.  I really enjoyed the flat AZ land with the mountains in the background.  It was pretty chilly this morning but once the run started it was perfect running weather.

heinous just woke up pre run photo:

With 6 miles under our belt we came home and i made a quick breakfast

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • lots of salt and pepper
  • whole wheat toast (end piece.. i love the end piece anyone else?)
  • apricot jam

Now I am hanging out watching football and my nephew run around the house while my mom and Sam cook. probably going to need a nap later. happy thanksgiving!
