I am so happy it is Friday and a long weekend! We are heading up to Vermont for a wedding and then I am running the Tufts 10k on Monday with my mom, aunt and lots of amazing women. It will be so nice to have some extra time with family and friends.
I am a little nervous about the Tufts 10k. I have not been running much at all and when I do, it is very slow and steady. However, I did manage to get an evening run on Wednesday which was so nice. I have found that I literally need to change into my workout clothes before picking up Emerson from Daycare. That way, once we get home, I just grab the stroller and we run. If I go into the house, I will never leave. I have to be dressed and go. You gotta do what you gotta do!
On another note, I have made 3 of the 10 recipes I posted on Tuesday. The Cinnamon Apple Quinoa was really good. Adding the cinnamon made a huge difference. I modified it a little and will definitely be making it several times this fall. The Apple Baked Oatmeal was ok, not great. I love oat bakes but this one is not a favorite. I also made the Applesauce in my slow cooker. It was so easy and so easy and so good! The best part is now I have applesauce to use in my healthy baking! I still have so many apples! I am going to try to make the Pumpkin Apple Muffins this weekend because those look so good.
My food for work has literally been everything apple. Today it is the Apple Oat Bake topped with yogurt and a drizzle of peanut butter. Lunch is a bed of lettuce and arugula with the apple walnut quinoa and chicken sausage with an apple for dessert.
It’s safe to say I might be sick of apples soon!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!! Can’t wait to read all about them!
