not one recipe

Hi everyone.

No recipes from me this week!

We will be eating: leftover chili from the freezer one night (ok, probably two nights), breakfast one night, and some sort of Valentine's dinner...

I know that is only 4 nights...and that there are more nights than that in a week.

Brent's parent's are coming in town and staying Thursday through Sunday! So, I didn't want to plan to cook and then let food go to waste...I hate that.

I did go grocery shopping today.


I'm sorry, I love lunchables. And they are easy....and good...

I mean, it's bologna and oreos--doesn't get much better than that combo right there!

Also, my favorite veggie dip is currently B1G1 (at Publix of course).

This is also my favorite flavor...YUM.

Still on week 6 of C25K. I'm finding that running longer than 10 minutes without stopping is hard.

Or is it that running longer than 10 minutes with out stopping while watching Hannah Montana is hard???

Think on that.

around here

Sorry for the absence...I've been busy at work, at cooking, and at working out.

Brent had to work this weekend--which I'm used to, but was still kind of a bummer. So, I went for a beach walk by myself.

Inlet Beach

As you can see, the beach was pretty deserted. Except for this guy...

He was the size of a basketball. Probably the largest jelly fish I've ever seen. And yes, I did poke him with a stick (naturally).

Soon after I discovered the largest jellyfish ever, the fog began rolling in. This is a really weird phenomenon at any time of day, but especially at 2:00 in the afternoon on the beach. I couldn't see more than 20 feet ahead or behind me, so I called it a day.

Moving on...

I'm sure you would like some recipes. Well, I have one to give you. It's quiche. And it's delicious.

Country Quiche to be exact. 

To lighten the recipe, I used 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, instead of 4 eggs. I also used reduced fat cheese. And, I cheated and used already cooked bacon. I sauteed my onion in 1 tsp olive oil instead of bacon grease.

Servings: 8; 7 points/serving

I also burned/dried out made BBQ in the crock pot this week. It wasn't so good...

I am about to go run "Week 5 Day 3" of C25K...wish me luck.

The last few times I have gone down to run there has been a 10-ish yro girl in there with her mom. She likes to get on the treadmill next to me and attempt to race me/run with me. It's pretty obnoxious.

And we're also usually watching Phineas and Ferb or Hannah Montana at the time.
