I got my seven miles in yesterday - outside. I was pretty happy about that, because I can't begin to tell you how much I hate the treadmill. I will be on it for the three-mile "runs" this week because we're supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow. Or, as the Michigan branch of the family calls it, Tuesday.
I found a new recipe that you should make. It's really quick and easy, and delicious! It's Cilantro Lime Shrimp from Skinnytaste, my new favorite blog. It's always a sign of a good recipe when Dwight asks, while we're eating dinner, if we can have it again. I served it with brown rice and black beans.
While that meal was nice and healthy, here is one that isn't. Or at least part of it isn't.
They are an eastern Iowa treat and are so freaking good that I cannot be trusted around them! (For those of you from Aberdeen, remember Old Dutch? These taste just like that).
Not only did our Iowa in-laws give us those devil potato chips, but we got a lovely gift box full of Iowa goodies:
|The box was wrapped with a giant bow but I couldn't retie it to make it pretty|
A few other things I can't be trusted around: wine (but we knew that), cashew crunch (the ingredient list read butter, sugar, cashews), and the homemade caramels. I think I need to change the emphasis of this blog from "healthy living" to just "living".
Here's to living!
