3 Things Thursday

Posted Oct 18 2012 4:49pm

Ready for a random story with no real point? Good. Here we go. We had a discussion a couple weeks ago at work about weird, superfluous (<— Sean would be mad at me for using such a “big” word) phrases that people use, like “not gonna lie” which had me cracking up and reminded me of how Sean and I used to get SO annoyed when people would say “to be quite frank” or “frankly”. We would always just insert a random name instead of frank when we were talking and would end up saying, “to be quite rachael” or “to be quite sean”. Which is totally normal, promise. Then I almost went to use to open this post with “not gonna lie” and I had to chuckle and delete it. Unnecessary story FTW. Moving on…

1. I made this recipe earlier this week and it was a freaking slam dunk. Sean raved about it for days. If you’re looking for a good soup recipe, TRY THIS ONE .


definitely not my picture because I am not a food blogger. and mine didn’t really look exactly like that. still not certain how Cooking Light gets all their dishes to look so pretty.

I followed the recipe almost to a T, except that I didn’t use a green pepper because I bought the three-pack of peppers that comes with red, orange and yellow. It was still delicious. Oh and I also didn’t use queso blanco because I’m not sure I’ve ever had it before so I didn’t know if I’d like it (let’s be honest, it’s cheese, of course I would). So I used shredded colby-jack cheese instead, which is one of my favorites. Make this ASAP. You won’t be disappointed.

2. I’ve been on a roll with dinners this week and last night I made this pork with roasted apples and onions recipe .


also not my picture, but you probably already guessed that. but someone average must have photographed this because mine looked almost exactly like this!! kidding, Cooking Light , it probably means I’m good at following directions.

The only change that I made to this recipe is that Sean and I added a fried egg to it. Sounds weird, I know, but it was amazingly delicious. I was super hesitant about making this because Sean can be a little weird about fruit mixed in with dinner, but he was giving out compliments left and right about this one too. Sometimes I forget how much I like pork, and this just resolidified that I should probably be making it more often than I do.

3. Those are the only two dinners I’ve made this week, so that’s really all I’ve got. Other than that I’ve had a few mediocre runs, one good hot yoga session, and I’ve worked a lot. Exciting stuff, I know.

Oh wait, I do have one gripe for all the cyclists out there: I know that you are all out there trying to log miles just like us runners, but PLEASE do us both a favor and yell out “on your left” or “on your right” if you’re coming up behind a runner. I don’t wear headphones when I run for this very reason, but I do tend to zone out, and yesterday I almost got hit twice because I had a cyclist zoom past me without alerting me that they were there. It’s just common courtesy, and I don’t want to put myself back on the injured list any time soon because I got hit by a bike.

Any new recipes I should try? I had a BIG recipe fail a couple weeks ago so I’ve been sticking to safe stuff til this week. Now I’m feeling experimental again, so send them my way!
