This morning came. I was up at 6:30, dressed and coffee in hand. The weather wasn't as bad as I feared. I just bought D2 a new winter toddler bundleme stroller bunting so I figured 'why not' and packed the car. D2 woke up first (surprise, surprise) and I got her dressed. We went in and woke up D1. I asked her if she wanted to run a race with mommy and she perked right up and was ready to go! I packed lunches/snacks and got my gear ready and we were out the door. I was still in the mood of 'if we can get there and ready on time then I will run'. We got 3/4 there and hit a huge patch of stand still traffic. I thought we were done. These races do NOT wait on people. We finally got there and it was a low key 250 people group. I got the stroller put together, buntings in place and kiddos strapped in with hats and we were ready. All this with 25 minutes to spare. I got in, got my number and we were on the starting line. I swear that 25 people congratulated me. I was the ONLY person with a stroller and therefore the ONLY person with a double jogger. I think I should have won SOMETHING :)
|I never post pics of the girls, but I was so proud today!|
We then stopped at Whole Foods. Love that place. We got some necessities and I got one of my favorite things ever. Its a 'chicken' tofu. OMG. The texture is EXACTLY that of chicken. If you have a whole foods.... you HAVE To try it. Its heavenly and you would NEVER EVER know it wasn't chicken. SO good. I had to take a pic.
Then I made spaghetti squash spaghetti. Was SO yummy. The best part is that its sooooo low fat & calorie.
Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti
2 spaghetti squashes
Jar of spaghetti sauce
Ground meat (I used bison)
toppings... I used black olives & parmesan cheese
Cut squash lenthwise in half. scoop out seeds. drizzle with EVOO and place face down on foiled pan. Cook at 400 for 35 minutes. Brown meat, store in spaghetti sauce and add any 'extras'. Remove squash from oven when done and let cool for 10 minutes. Fork squash into 'noodles' but leave in shell. Top with meat/sauce mixture. Top with parmesan and bake for additional 10 minutes. ENJOY!
I paired this with a spinach, caper, and tomato salad. Yum!!!
