Thank you all for the early birthday wishes!! Birthday plans are in the works. Josh and I are hoping to do something special this weekend (maybe rock climbing or kayaking). I’d love to get some Fresh Berry froyo too. And my parents are having a little BBQ birthday party for me on Labor Day. So lots of great things in store! Its a big birthday week in the food blogger world! I'd like to send a Happy Birthday out to Rose and Erin!!!
OK, onto today. I am super crabby.....not sure whats up, maybe just not enough sleep? I think Frank is in the same boat...
My manager allowed me to work from home today=heaven! I put in an early morning four mile run, in hopes that the run would get things moving in my tummy. No such luck. Work was fairly busy (made the day go by fast!). After work, I ran out and took my friend Jennifer’s 45 minute spin class. I was a sweaty monster afterwards (fabulous!) When I got home, I realized I had gotten my/Frank's prize from a contest we won on Meals and Moves:
Thank you so much Janetha and Penelope Jane!!! Frank & I cannot wait to enjoy our treats (Frank already opened his cookies ;)).
For dinner tonight, I made a recipe from one of my favorite blogs, No Meat Athlete. As soon as I saw this recipe, I book marked it and put it into my meal plan for this week. Since I had some TJs refried black beans sitting in the pantry, I decided to use these (versus cooking up the black beans as per the NMA recipe).
The corn cakes came out AWESOME! Aside from the refried black beans, I topped mine with salsa and bell pepper. SO yummy!!
Now I am awaiting Josh's return from the gym. I think we're headed to Lowe's to pick up our new grill. I am super excited. Maybe the new grill will make the crabby me disappear ;)
Do you have a grill? What is your favorite grill recipe (feel free to provide links!!)?
