Cousin Lovin

Last night my cousin Amanda and her husband came over for dinner and to watch the Big 12 Tourney.  

We had so much fun that we could barely stay awake until the end of the games.  Party animals over here.

Dan and I tag-teamed the mushroom chicken in garlic white wine sauce (click *here* for the recipe) while the veggies were roasting. 

Uncle Ben provided the yummy rice.  

Amanda brought a chunk of heaven peanut butter pie for dessert (click *here* for the recipe).  

Dan took a piece before we could take a picture.  I can't blame the guy.  Knowing that a few uneaten pieces remain in my fridge is killing me right now.  Killing me.  

Other Eats
I woke up craving cereal, but there was no cereal to be had.  I improvised breakfast cookie dough cereal by mashing up a banana, a tablespoon of almond butter, and 1/3 C oatmeal and topped it with a cup of skim milk.  Perfect fuel for a long run.

After my 10 mile run I was in a hurry, so my second breakfast was to-go.

Lunch was courtesy of my boyfriend Joe and the microwave.  Super quick, easy, and tasty!

Yes, I am that girl.  The girl who brings curry and tuna to eat in a room of cubicles.  I am sure my neighbors LOVE me.  

Other snacks:

I also grabbed a handful of quinoa chips before bed (3).

Yesterday I Smash-ed through 10 miles.  I am now convinced that anyone could run while watching a musical. Try it.  

Today I am running in the Wesport St. Patrick's Day Run.  This race will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the first race I ever ran.  Five years ago.

I have obviously matured in the past five years.  I am really sad because this will be the first year that I will run it without my friend Chessa (pictured above).  But, we will make up for it by spending St. Patrick's Day together next Saturday in LAS VEGAS.  Winna winna!
