When I woke up at 4:45 this morning, it sure felt like I was waking up in the middle of the night! The time change is really messing with me. It gets easier, right?
I woke up bright and early to run with Back on My Feet . The Father Bill’s Place team runs at 5:30 every morning on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so I decided to commit to the Wednesday run with the occasional Monday or Friday run mixed in.
Every run starts with a big group circle where we all put our arms around each other and recite the Serenity Prayer together. This morning, we also did some quick introductions because there were a couple of new volunteers and wished a resident (of Father Bill’s Place) a happy birthday. Then, it was time to head over to the YMCA to get our run/walk on at the indoor track.
Last week, a lot of the residents walked on the track, but, today, many of them were running. I think they’re gearing up for the St. Patrick’s Day 5K in South Boston this weekend! I wish I was able to cheer them on, but I’ll be just be finishing the Quincy Half when the race starts in Southie. Next time!
Last Night’s Dinner
Spinach Artichoke Dip + pizza?!? Um, yes, please!
Last night’s dinner combined both of these delicious entities into one: Spinach & Artichoke Pizza . It’s the best of both worlds, right?
This pizza tasted fabulous, but what I loved most was how easy it was to make. I’m all about the simple recipes!
Just combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Spread it on a prepared pizza crust. (I used a Mama Mary’s Whole Wheat Pizza Crust, which was really crispy, almost cracker-like.)
Shake on some grated Parmesan.
And bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. Viola! Spinach & Artichoke Pizza!
This pizza definitely worked as dinner, but I think it would make an even better party appetizer. Perhaps for March Madness?
