I’m bummed. Two days from now is Racefest, the 10k I’ve been training for. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to run (OK, wog) it because of some last minute work stuff with David. Instead, we’ll be gone and my little registration will be left in the dust. (Can you transfer registrations? If so, anyone want it??)
I’m not sure what to do. I need to look and see if there are any other 10ks soon. If not, do I map and run my own? That sure sounds anticlimactic after the hard work I’ve put in. Any ideas?
The other day I introduced you to my baked banana oat cups.
Well, I pulled the recipe off in order to tweak it. I got quite a few email and comments about the missing link, so I’m sorry I didn’t give you a heads up. The good news, though, is that I baked a new batch last night with a revamped recipe and now they’re an even better warm and delicious quick breakfast. David liked them, too, and thought they were even better reheated the next day. Note: if you’re saving them to eat throughout the week, you must freeze them after they cool. To warm up, simply wrap the frozen oat cup in a paper towel and nuke for 1 minute.
Anyway, the new recipe (and nutritional info) can be found HERE. Let me know what you think!
A few have asked for an update on Hailey’s eating adventures. To date, she’s eaten: avocado, broccoli, sweet potato, cheese, bread, raspberries, blueberries, mango, carrots, acorn squash, apple, cucumber, Greek yogurt, an olive, green beans, egg yolk, baked oatmeal and brown rice.
Most of the time I give her large pieces that she can handle herself, though other times (and with smaller foods like berries), I’ll pull off tiny bites and let her pull my hand to her mouth to “feed herself”.
It’s really been fun watching her discover new tastes. She makes some funny faces, but usually goes back for more. I think her favorite thing so far has been a strip of grilled cheese. She downed it! Overall, I’m focusing on as many veggies as possible, because of course she’ll like grilled cheese. She is human, after all.
Now off to the pile of laundry so we can repack it all again. Always an adventure
