Green thumbs, fast runs and quick dinners!

22 May

I am so happy to report that I actually planted something in my garden on my own and it lived! I was very nervous after the beautiful pink tulips my mother in laws gave me died. So when she gave me these babies I was so worried about planted them, but they SURVIVED!!!!

Ignore the one wilted one behind these two beauties! That one goes from wilted to perfect everytime it rains….annoying but I will take what I can get!

That segways us right into todays run right, I mean not random at all but here we go! I took it to the treadmill again today, I had to make dinner and finally wash my two pairs of jeans that actually fit me so treadmill it was. You see Dan and I are trying to save money for something extremely important…more on that in a post to come. So I have been making our breakfasts, lunches and dinners instead of buying them and trying to use up what we have. I also plan on taking up OAMC (once a month cooking), cheap and time saving there are some great recipes out there!

So todays run was 3.10 miles in……..29:20 WHAT?!?!?! That is miraculous for me! I am so happy with todays performance. NO it was not a run with no stops, sadly! I didnt walk at all but I did stop around 1.53 miles to stretch the backs of my quads they were pretty tight. Then I got back to business and was good to go until the end!! SWEET RUN INDEED! I am pretty happy with my ability to push myself lately and I know this running streak will only help me get better!

Finally we come to last nights glorious recipe! I used my brown sugar garlic chicken recipe and it was still just as good! I forgot how long it has been since we had it….Valentines Day WOAH! So delicious though, I served it with roasted broccoli and broccoli cheese noodles. Those noodles rock they are $1.00 per bag.

I tweaked my roasted broccoli recipe and it was SO good!

Garlic, olive oil, chili flakes and grated Irish cheese= Wonderous. Bake in a 375* oven for 45 minutes and Viola!

I tried to make the picture horizontal but it was a no go, so you will have to deal….plus it doesnt take away from the beauty!

So that was todays run, last nights dinner and my “gardening”….what are some dinner you have had lately!?!?!

I am looking for dinner suggestions for us and will post them to the blog, so any and all are appreciated! I am also so pumped about my current runs and running streak…how long was your longest streak?

My good blogger friend Chris who posts as running corgi went 100 days! SHE ROCKS!!!
