I've started this blog to document my journey running while balancing motherhood, and eventually if I'm lucky enough, my next pregnancy.

Foodie Friday

This is my favorite day of the week while training... the day before a long run (with the exception of Cupcake Reward Day. A girl has to look forward to a treat after pounding out miles on pavement). Enter beautiful, perfect, and tasty pasta. Yum...

What I really want is some homemade lasagna. Pickle loves the homemade sauce and houses it. But I figured the obscene amounts of cheese the recipe calls for wouldn't be good for a 12 mile run.

I wish I would have had time to stick my normal carbo loading meal: Lemon, Mint, and Zucchini pasta with a little bit of chicken.

Instead, Pickle and I got hungry and didn't have enough time to go home and cook. We had errands to run and my hubby was out at band practice (yeah, my husband's a rock star) so there was no one to rescue me and get dinner going. I took Pickle to Noodles and Company so I could have my tried and true back up meal of Japanese Pan Noodles with Grilled Chicken. I am proud to report that my little man (usually a little monster when out to eat) was positively the best little date ever for a Friday night. He was cuddly and gave me multiple smooches throughout dinner.

Top that, hubby. You're a pretty awesome date, but I've never seen you gush over me like Pickle did. :)

And for my last food tidbit, tomorrow is Cupcake Day! I can't wait!

  1. Have a great cupcake day! and a great run, of course. Can't wait to see you.


I'd love to hear from you. Nothing makes me happier (except chocolate and cupcakes... but really, who can compete with them?)
