Five Things

Good morning!

Brace yourself for a random post.

Five recipes I have made lately and loved:

  1. No bake blueberry jam bars  (completely DPD friendly)
  2. Crockpot lentils and brown rice - I have recently discovered how much I love lentils
  3. Pineapple, cucumber, and mint salad - I made this for small group last night - I liked it, but I don’t know if anyone else did - ha!
  4. Sun dried tomato turkey burgers - so good we are having them again for dinner tonight
  5. Roasted sugar snap peas - I continue to believe that every vegetable tastes better when roasted

Five things I am looking forward to:

  1. The detox being over tomorrow - coffee, here I come.  I want to try to make my own iced coffee.  I will likely add in the occasional dairy, but I am going to try very hard to stay away from sugar and of course gluten.
  2. A laid back weekend - it seems we will have the perfect mix of planned activities and sitting around, which I love.
  3. 4th of July!
  4. Running again.  I love T25, and I am finally feeling like I can do most of the workouts, but I do miss running.  I have one more week of T25, and then it is back to pounding the pavement. 
  5. Football season.  Is it too early for that yet?

Five new things Ina is saying:

  1. “Yeah” which has replaced “no” or “uh-uh” very appropriately and I couldn’t be more thankful
  2. “Yay Royals!” while clapping
  3. “Hummus!” which might be her favorite food of all time.  She says it as soon as I open the can of chickpeas.  
  4. “Luv you Momma-Daddy”  which is so sweet
  5. “Two” after I say one, and “Eight” after I say seven.  She will still repeat the rest of the numbers after me, but she knows what comes after one and seven.  Ha!

Five things I would do if there were more than 24 hours in a day:

  1. Train for another triathlon.  The one I want to do is the same one I did last year and it just happens to be on my 30th birthday.  I think there is something so cool about that.
  2. Read the last book in the Divergent series
  3. Clean out my pantry - I swear this needs to be done once a month at least or else things start falling on me
  4. List all the things we don’t need / use  in our house on Craig’s List or Ebay.  I have done this with a handful of items and it is very surprising what other people want.  
  5. Spend more time with Ina just being with her and not trying to do something else at the same time.  

OK, I think that is enough. Have a great Wednesday!

  1. The sun dried tomato burgers sound good. No a big fan of Ground turkey, I'm sure I could use ground chuck. I have made iced coffee that way and it's so good. You can sweeten or add cream or milk to achieve the perfect taste
