I tested out running two days in a row, and it was a success! Six miles and the fresh air was just what I needed to wake me up.
6 miles @ 8:40 average.
The majority of our day was spent cooking and celebrating Thanksgiving with the kids!
We are going to miss them a lot next week but I’ve learned that it is just a day and we can celebrate it whenever we want.
The grand finale.
And then we ‘relaxed’ and watched Home Alone.
Going to miss these two:
Food talk—> HERE is the recipe for the funeral potatoes (we used bread for the topping instead of cornflakes). The rolls and two of the pies were from Kneaders. The cranberries, turkey, pumpkin pie and stuffing from Costco, and below is the recipe for the salad.
Here is the creamed corn recipe (it is Andrew’s absolute favorite);
20 oz frozen kernel corn
1/2 pt whipping cream
8 oz milk
6 tsp sugar
pinch of pepper
2 Tbs melted butter
2 Tbs flour
Combine all ingredients except for the butter and flour. Bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes and then add stir in the butter and flour and mix well:)
Some Friday Favorites are coming your way…
*Don’t forget my gift guide is here, and it includes most of my favorite things ha.
*I treated myself to a hydrofacial (I went to Spa Trouve). This was my second one ever, and I left feeling like a new woman (I also left with deliciousness… a spa that gives you cookies after is the best kind of spa). I may be whispering in Andrew’s ear to go the route of Dermatology Nurse Practioner so he can help my skin all of the time:)
*It was 22 degrees for my run yesterday. Usually, I would have to bring some hand warmers to go in my gloves at that temperature, but I didn’t yesterday because of these gloves. My hands were TOASTY the entire run. When I got home I am very happy to have gloves that will get me through the 10-25°F mornings without hand warmers.
Having the right gear for winter running makes winter running fun.
*Beck’s Friday Favorite= Fry Sauce (ketchup and mayo mixed). He got ahold of it at lunch while we were in St. George, and I could read his mind… he wanted me to fill up his sippy cup with it.
*The winter boots I will be using all winter long. I need warm toes, and I do not settle until I find a boot that will give me that joy:).
*Allison sent me this idea from mamafitlife_ and I might have to try it when I change Beck’s diaper to make things easier for me:)
