19 years ago today I became a big sister! Probably one of the best days of my life whether or not I realized it then. Happy birthday to my amazing little brother, Jonathan! I’m so glad that you exist.
I wish that I could have spent the day with my little bro, but we live on opposite ends of the state. He lives in Philly and I live in Pittsburgh, but I’ve forgiven him for choosing to live in a less interesting city than me. As long as he promised never to be a Flyer fan. He can cheer for the Phillies, although preferably not the Eagles…but the Flyers? I’d disown him. It’s true.
So just about 2 weeks out from
Dooms Day the PIttsburgh Marathon, but I didn’t run. My shin has been feeling better and I didn’t want to run too soon. I plan on running around 15 miles tomorrow if my shin feels up to it. I’ll at least got out there to run and test it. Pray for me, friends! I’m trying not to stress out, but it is really bothering me!
I rode the trainer instead, which we all know is my favorite form of exercise. That’s sarcasm.
I also made Natalie’s Curried Sweet Potato Chickpea burgers. I love all things curry, sweet potato and chickpeas. How could this possibly go wrong. It couldn’t. Especially when you add a gallon of Heinz ketchup to the burgers. It’s like Abby Normally’s taste bud heaven.
I also went to the store and hit the jackpot:
Bad news is that I got Dave hooked on Puffins, too, so now he eats my stash.
We had this same problem happen before. I used to hate beer and Dave made it his goal to make me a beer drinker. Now I like beer and he gets mad when I drink his beer. How did he solve the problem? He stopped buying beer.
I wish I had the will power to stop buying Puffins.
No, I don’t. If eating them means I have to share, so be it.
If only they made gluten-free PB ones, I might get them all to myself.
If you could combine all of your favorite foods/flavors what would it be? A burger? A salad? A dessert? A bowl of oatmeal?
Mine would probably be a burger like the curry sweet potato chickpea burger, or some kind of dessert that combines chocolate, mint, coconut, and grape Skittles. Sounds amazing, right?
