Everything But The…

by Meghann on May 11, 2009

Tonight was my last Monday night run with my Team in Training group. Next Monday is out Bon Voyage party and the Monday after that is the Monday before we leave… ahhh.. so soon!

The sad part was our last run wasn’t even a complete one, my running buddy and I had barely run 2 miles when it started to lightening and we had to head out. Oh well, I guess 2 miles is better then no miles at all. 🙂

Before my short run I had a new bar from the people at Country Choice Organic.

The Oatmeal Raisin on the Run Bar was very dense and tasty. A cinnamon flavor was very evident and it wasn’t too sweet.

They market this bar as a breakfast on the run, but I know it wouldn’t keep me satisfied. However, I wouldn’t mind experimenting with breaking it in pieces with some yogurt and fruit. That would make a mighty tasty breakfast. 🙂

I was continuing the eating up the fridge theme from lunch and made an Everything But the Kitchen Sink meal using everything that I could in the fridge.

I started by roasting up some corn in the cob and brussel sprouts in the oven at 420 for 15 minutes.

While those were roasting I combined in a bowl

I added the Corn and the Brussel Sprouts once they were done, gave it a good mix and topped it all with a dollop of Trader Joe’s Peach Salsa.

I love Everything But The… meals! THis was really tasty and all of the different flavors combined wonderfully in the bowl. I had heated everything up together so the spinach was nice and wilted. Big Yum!

Now the problem is once everything was mixed together there was enough for 2 so I now have a portion of this left! I will just have to think of something creative to do it with for dinner tomorrow. 😉

Dessert was two of Melissa’s Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip cookies.

These babies are good after you put them in the microwave for a couple of minutes. The chocolate is soo melty, I love it.

Now I must pack.. grrr… it’s suppose to be 90 degree the rest of the week in San Antonio. I am leaving hot and humid for more hot and humid. :/ Don’t worry I have lots of sun dresses in mind, my cowboy boots are a must and I can’t travel without my running shoes!

Eating up the Freezer

May 11, 2009

I postponed going to the grocery store this week since I am leaving early Wednesday morning for the remainder of the week. Having no grocery store run to help me start the week off is sad because I don’t have the bountiful amount of veggies that is usually flowing from my fridge, BUT it does more »
