6:00 AM: 3.6-Mile Run on the TM – COMPLETED
The other day when I went food shopping, I picked up a new cooking magazine. Boy, do I get sucked into those magazines. Usually it’s the gossip tabloids, but sometimes, I’ll see a yummy dish on the front of the magazine and $10.00 later my grocery bill spikes to $130 and change.
If you know my husband, he’s a meat lover. I know, I know. His cholesterol is skyrocket HIGH, but I am going to make a good bulk of these dishes with ground turkey. I might even split it in half. Last night he wanted me to try something in the magazine.
It’s basically ground beef, diced onions, scallions, taco mix, 1/4 cup of water, refried black beans. Cook it all together, put in a baking pan, put in the oven for 30-minutes. Sprinkle a cup of Mexican shredded cheese and crunched up tostido chips. Voila.
I ended up baking for 25-minutes and for the last 5 minutes, I added the cheese and chips. And then when I took it out, I added more cheese on top.
Final Result: Pedro gave this dish an “F”. He said there wasn’t much taste. I think it’s because he’s had one too many burritos.
Running News: In case you didn’t get the Memo (because I didn’t even get the Memo myself), I did NOT get into the NYC Half Marathon. Big Whoop. I’m not sad. I’m just $100+ richer. So what’s next? The VT Marathon. But I am going to squeeze in a Half somewhere in between.
Also, NYC Marathon is now open for lottery. I am DEFINITELY in this year. Sad news, though, I was planning on deferring if I happened to be pregnant, but, I just read all these new “guidelines” that they have and one of them is you can no longer defer. What does this mean for me? Well, it basically means that I have no choice but to run this; pregnant or not pregnant. Fun stuff. Oh yeah, and the race is now $260. Sheesh. Highway robbery.
It’s a new year. What’s on your race schedule?
