I started out saying that I was going to run 20 minutes without stopping then when I got there I said "Oh 5 more minutes will be easy", then I got to 30 and checked my distance. I was almost at 3.1 might as well keep going. Thank goodness for 90's Hip Hip on Pandora and Tupac. They got me through it! I was slow but who cares?! I have a little over a month until I run a real one...outside. The weather needs to quit being bi-polar so I can practice outside!
We will call this week's dinner plan the Pinterest plan. I just made a bunch of stuff that looked good, nothing I made on my own. I was too busy being a crafty crafter!
Sunday and Monday I only spent a couple hours making 8 things! I even had 6 things in the oven at one time. I do not have to cook the rest of this week and possibly some of next week! Completely worth the time!
Here is my list of things I made:
Meatballs with a sauce of BBQ and grape Jelly. This one is for Marcus....even though they are amazing.
Black Bean, Quinoa Casserole-This was so good I couldn't wait for it to cool down before I ate some!
Quinoa Pizza Balls (I love balls haha)-And I might have a slight love for quinoa these days. I haven't tried these yet but they smelled good!
Homemade Greek Yogurt-This wasn't a lot of work but took a total of 16 hours. I haven't tried it but hopefully it is good. If it is, it will be worth it!
Oatmeal Cookies-So easy and healthy. They satisfy a sweet tooth....and I may have put some chocolate chips in them:)
Skinny Potato Casserole-YUM-No need to say more
Quinoa Apple Cake-This was weird at first and I discovered coconut oil doesn't taste great in baking but it was still ok. Kind of like a crumbly coffee cake.
Turkey bacon, egg cups-Egg beaters, Turkey bacon, Spinach, and tomatoes.
I also made quinoa, oatmeal and brown rice. Chopped up cucumbers, lettuce, kale and spinach.
I think it took me an hour each day and of course just checking on the yogurt!
