Morgan made me aware that requiring you all to purchase something in order to enter the giveaway is illegal. I looked it up, and in Missouri you can only do that if you are a charitable or religious group. I’d like to think I’m both, but unfortunately the government doesn’t recognize me as such.
Yesterday I woke up feeling a little fuzzy due to some Tuesday night wine, so I gave myself plenty of time for breakfast and coffee before heading to my workout. I had a run in mind for today, and at the last minute decided to see if I could push myself on another tempo run. (For info on tempo runs, check out my explanation post!)
Success! I kept my incline at .5%, but increased my tempo speed to 7.7! That’s a 7:48 pace for 3 miles, which is much faster than I usually run. If I held that pace for a half marathon I’d finish right around 1:42:00! Crazy!
I got in a strength workout from Best Body Bootcamp, then rushed home for lunch and a long day of writing work.
It was Wednesday, which means it was my night to cook dinner for my parents. I usually just make something I’ve seen online or have been craving, but this time my mom had a request. She found a recipe in the newspaper and tore it out for me, so dinner was Ground Turkey with Asian Slaw.
I subbed ground turkey for the ground beef, and used some rice blends we had on hand instead of white rice.
I thought it was AWESOME. My mom and I both loved the bold asian flavors, and the meat had a little kick from the cayenne! My dad (who I have learned is the pickest person ever) thought it could have been better. I had seconds and would totally eat it again, and my mom ended up finishing all the leftovers.
Dessert. Recipe later today!
- Have you ever made a recipe from the newspaper?
- Do you even still get the newspaper?
Kind of sad. This recipe was in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, but was actually taken from the Chicago Tribune.
