Double Digits & Savory Oats Brinner

Are you as excited as I am that its Thursday already? I have had a wonderful day thus far which has included:
  • A busy day at work
  • Laundry
  • My first ever double digit run- just over 10 miles:


  • A little shopping
  • Reading the newspaper outside in the beautiful summer like weather
  • A walk with Frank
  • Brinner- Savory Oats with beans, broccoli, cauliflower, green pepper, hot sauce, and Parmesan cheese:

and an apple with cinnamon on the side:

Josh is still at work but will probably have the same dinner plus some cheesy eggs. I foresee some more pumpkin with honey in my future! What are you doing on this fine Thursday night?

Edited to Add:
Julie is having an awesome Nature's Path Giveaway- check it out!

Right now I am addressing a birthday card (it's tomorrow)to my sweet hubby and then we will probably watch Bones, CSI, and then The Mentalist...we love that show!

Enjoy!

Are you training for a 1/2 marathon? Good luck!

We had leftover black bean soup for dinner. I love it. I am relaxing tonight. Josh is still working on the basement. It is a project. They are launching Body Step this week and next. You teach that one, right?

I had pork chops for dinner. I never did get around to making that squash, but I plan to have that tomorrow or Saturday. I do have a light, meatless mac and cheese recipe going up tomorrow that you might like though (bonus tip- add broccoli to it)
