Lunch today snuck up on me!
Before I knew it, my stomach was grumbling and I needed food!
Fact: This meal looks horrendous.
But lots of shredded cheese has a way of making me overlook an unattractive dish!
I began by sautéing a chopped chicken sausage in a skillet while I steamed some cauliflower in the microwave. I then added leftover roasted Brussels sprouts to the skillet, followed by the mashed steamed cauliflower and a boatload of shredded cheese.
Easy, satisfying, ugly and delicious!
March Book Club
With the majority of the votes, the winning book for the PBF March Book Club is…
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. We’ll be discussing this book on the blog on Friday, April 5. I can’t wait to start reading!
Now let’s talk about St. Patrick’s Day running gear…
St. Patrick’s Day Running Gear
Are any of you out there planning to run in a St. Patrick’s Day race?
Ryan, my sister, my sister’s boyfriend and I will be running in a 10K on St. Patrick’s Day and ever since we signed up to participate, we’ve been sending each other costume ideas. You know we like to dress up for races together!
Here are some winners:
This guy gets a gold star for running with a pot o’ gold.
Make your FACE into a shamrock. I like her style.
I admire their commitment to the color green. (Bonus points for the Lucky Charms boxers.)
These girls look so cute in their green tutus!
More St. Patrick’s Day gear that caught my eye…
I saw a bunch of women wearing fun sparkly skirts over their leggings or compression shorts at the Women’s Half Marathon a few years ago and thought they looked awesome! (Bachelor fans, I think we know Tierra would be all about this one. Sparkle.)
You guys know how obsessed I am with these headbands by now. When I saw the shamrock headband on their website, I just had to have it. A headband that doesn’t slip that’s also peppered with lots of little shamrocks!? Oh yes! (Get psyched because YOU have a chance to win a $40 BICBands gift card that you can use toward one at the end of this post!)
- Target $1 Bin Finds
Surely I’m not the only one out there who gets suckered into the Target $1 bins? I found a bunch of goodies in the $1 bins last weekend that I picked up for our upcoming race, including blinking bracelets, wigs, light-up rings and more. I was especially pumped about the neck ties!
Just in case your running shorts are a little too big.
I’m not gonna lie, these PRO Compression shamrock socks shamROCK my socks off. (Sorry, I just can’t help myself.) I saw Monica and SkinnyRunner blog about them last week and was so excited when they sent me a pair to try! (You can use the promo code MARCH for 40% off any of their marathon socks or calf sleeves right now!) I can’t wait to wear them during next Sunday’s 10K!
- More Fun Knee-High St. Patrick’s Day Socks
Target comes through in the clutch again with a bunch of knee-high St. Patrick’s Day socks for only $5!
I found this little gem in the Race Junkie’s Etsy shop and thought it was adorable!
