Today I made a fancy lunch!
Okay, so it wasn’t really fancy at all, but it was more time consuming than my typical three-minutes-from-fridge-to-plate lunches.
I made soup!
When I saw Chelsey post her recipe for cabbage lentil soup on her blog yesterday, it immediately caught my eye because I randomly bought a head of cabbage at the grocery store earlier this week.
I bought the cabbage on a whim, not knowing what I would do with it so when I saw Chelsey’s recipe, it was like she was speaking to me through the internet and I knew I had to make it.
I followed her recipe for the most part, only changing a few minor things and it turned out great.
I ate two bowls of the soup along with a side of tortilla chips for some crunch!
Gotta love a veggie-packed lunch!
Turkey Trot Costumes
Yesterday I put a call out for any pictures you guys might have from past Turkey Trots where you dressed up and looked nice and festive.
I received a few pictures that made me laugh and searched the internet for some additional costume inspiration photos for those of you hoping to dress up for an early morning Thanksgiving Day run next Thursday.
I think this may be the easiest costume to recreate…
Does this guy remind anyone else of Eddie from Christmas Vacation?
You could always buy a turkey friend and skip the whole dressing up thang…

Just in case your dog wants to run…
The winning costume that I would love to wear…
(Picture from Jackie whose friend is making these beanies for their run! And yes, I asked if they were selling them on the internet anywhere. Sadly they are not.)
Questions of the Afternoon
