Chili. Cheese. Fries.
Not your traditional chili cheese fries, but still just as amazing. I’ve actually been dreaming these up ever since I put the leftover chili away in the fridge last night.
At lunch time I made sweet potato fries (sweet potato cut into fry shapes, season with salt and pepper, and baked at 400 for 20 minutes) then topped them with heated up leftover chili and sprinkled with blue cheese (seriously digging the blue cheese and chili combo).
I need more chili cheese fries in my life. Especially ones that include sweet potato fries and blue cheese.
Clothes and Mud
I probably shouldn’t be admitting this, but do you remember the Pretty Muddy race I did last weekend? Well, after the race we all hosed off our dirty clothes and put them in a plastic bag so they wouldn’t mess up the car on the ride home.
The original plan was to throw the muddy clothes in the washer as soon as I got home, but that definitely didn’t happen. They stayed in that plastic bag in my garage until Saturday, when I finally got around to doing laundry and throwing them in the wash. I did one round of the clothes and shoes in the washing machine on their own, then another with towels. I pulled them out of the dryer yesterday and this is what I found.
I mean, the white sports bra and socks definitely have that dingy look to them (and, yes, I was wearing un-matching socks), but overall the clothes seemed re-wearable and the shoes are almost spotless.
So, just a heads up, shoes and clothes aren’t ruined forever if you put them through a mud run. I mean, whites might not be the best idea, but shoes and dark clothing will be just fine.
What has been your experience with clothes and mud runs? Do you take everything home to wash or leave them in a dumpster?
