Well it’s Thursday and I haven’t blogged in about a week…why you may ask? I have been back at work since Tuesday. For some reason this past break was extra relaxing and I am having an extra hard time adjusting to working and being with high school students:) Oh well they are tired as well as indicated by one of my students who told me on Tuesday that he had been up for 23 hours. It’s been a good week though aside from taking a bit of time for me to adjust to working again:) The joys of being a teacher. Some highlights of this week:
Making the following recipes that turned out amazing:
This was awesome only I didn’t use the crock pot. Instead I put them in the oven at 400 for 30 minutes. I also added a layer of water to the bottom that covered about a 1/4 inch. They turned out really great but the only thing I would add is some sort of a tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes and garlic. I also made this with that dinner:
I loved this and had it for lunch on Tuesday as well. Definitely something I will make again only I will use the original recipe values so I can have it all week:)
Last night I made this recipe:
This was a great way for me to make bean burritos with some new spices. I actually used chipotle spice versus the actual chipotles. I even used the greek yogurt they suggested. Dave couldn’t even tell the difference from actual sour cream. I liked it but I am not a big sour cream fan so I could have done without both of them. This also made for a great lunch today.
The other thing I have been using this week:
I finally got my running shoes Tuesday night. I ran my first run on Wednesday and was a little nervous as I haven’t run in any shoes besides Brooks for 5 years well really 12 if you don’t count my free pumas I wore for 6 months 5 years ago but I digress. I did a shoe finder that runner’s world has and they recommended these based on how I run and how much I run. I am happy to say that I love them! I did a 4.4 mile run on Wednesday and an 8.4 run this morning and felt like I was flying. Great switch and so glad that I bought two pairs. I am off to go and make veggie pita pockets and mushroom soup and then 1 more day:)
