Home-made pretzels eaten by one

After eating the leftover pad thai and adding whole wheat linguini I was determined to copy Hungryrunnergirl's home-made pretzel idea.  I bought a huge jar of yeast at target and needed to break it out. The recipe can be found here and I couldn't believe how good they were.  Ryan said they were boring but he forgot to alternate dipping them in peanut butter, butter, and caramel.  Yes, that is a letter R and K..Aunt Annie's in the mall is now featuring them I heard.

Gone Wrong

@nikerun is asked followers to comment on their embarrassing running stories so I thought I would share mine on here. Running with your iPhone in hand may be the safe route but if you become fixated on a certain song or text message it can turn ugly.  I took off my gloves to change the song and next thing I know I am face down on the concrete.  I almost called 911 just for a ride home.  I am pretty sure multiple cars saw me and just kept on driving by. Worst part was I tore my brand new Nike running tights!  I have been known for roller-blading wipe outs but never just running on the road.

Despite the farmers tan I really like this photo. Aruba was so amazing and I hope to go back someday.  Snorkeling, great food, and family time!

Pad Thai

Apparently Sprechers Restaurant in Madison, WI has amazing Pad Thai!  I was apprehensive to order but I was so happy I did.  The mix of noodles, tofu, and peanuts were perfect and I am so full right now I can't move.  Well not too full to have some of Ryan's birthday brownie sundae of course.  I saw someone order jambalaya and I wish that they made a vegetarian version.  I am a lover of spicy food and am known to add hot sauce and crushed red pepper to lots of foods.

Wish me luck on my 10 miles I am putting in tomorrow. I still can't decide if I want to take it to the dreadmill or outdoors.  Tune in tomorrow.

Did anyone dine out tonight??!

Wisconsin Winter Wonderland

Ran 4 miles outside last night. It was about 32 degrees. I tried to tie a scarf around my mouth to heat the air before it hits my lungs. This worked for about 30 seconds and I am paying for it this morning because my throat is sore. Thank goodness for lime green tea ;)

It is 10 am and I am alread excited for my grandpa's birthday lunch! Soup, salad and breadsticks here I come. Maybe if I can figure out how to post a photo you can feast your eyes on my minestrone.

Have a great day!
