I’m so glad it’s Monday. Wait… did I just say that?
Yes, yes I did. Starting last week, we have had a lovely cold pass through our household. I caught it on Saturday and I missed 13 miles of training this weekend. 13 miles! That’s a lot, friends. I was down and out both Saturday and Sunday. We had a date night out with some friends planned for Saturday evening, too, which really bummed me out. I was really looking forward to it. I literally spent the entire weekend in bed. I cannot wait to run again. I have been thinking about it since Saturday. I was truly considering running my 9 miles on Sunday. Of course that was just a pipe dream. I’m itching to get back out there.
Today I’m finally feeling better. I feel human again. So yes, I’m so glad it’s Monday.
I also woke up this morning to see I had 300 “likes” on my Facebook page. How awesome is that? A big thank you and WELCOME to all of my newly added fans and followers. It definitely put a smile on my face.
Today’s recipe is happiness in a casserole dish. Unfortunately, I don’t have photos to share. I haven’t made this recipe in a while and I have it on the menu for this week. I just couldn’t wait to share it though. It’s great for cool fall evenings, and I didn’t want to leave you without it. And it’s an easy recipe. Perfect!
