Well, this morning I ran my last long run before the half marathon (next Sunday). I ran 8 glorious miles and it flew by. I averaged good pace overall and only stopped twice at the water stops.
When we got back, it was bagel timeeee! Yesterday was National Bagel Day so I hope you got a bagel in your belly!!
Then it was time for the drawing. Me, my mom, and my dad, all won shirts! Plus got a free t-shirt from Mountain High Outfitters…aren’t they just sweet.
And later that day, I helped my dad plant our green vegetables…all my favorites!
This morning I had a green smoothie and scrambled egg in coconut oil. Then we headed for church
Well, I consider this Lunch/Dinner…that’s usually how our Sundays roll…
I wanted to make this recipe…
Roasted Mushrooms and Onions with Gouda Grilled Cheese
And so I did.
I used a leftover hamburger bun for mine…Don’t waste food! And then we had another extra sandwich, so I split that one and took a picture of it too. The Gouda…was so good. We got Smoked Gouda from Costco…and it tasted sooooo good on this sandwich. Just so you know, I followed the recipe exactly.
I wanted to make these gluten free chocolate chip blondies from Rachael Ray magazine…
But I had to change some stuff up…here’s how I did it:
- 1 1/4 cups sliced pecans
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose gluten free flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup applesauce
- 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
- 3 ounces dark chocolate (preferably 72% to73% cocoa), finely chopped
I cut back on the sugar and they were fine…unless you prefer things to be extremely sweet. And instead of butter, I put coconut oil. I love coconut oil.
I guess there’s no running today for me…it’s pouring down rain. Have a good day
