Dinner with the Parents

I was lucky enough to get to stay and have dinner with my parents tonight! I love eating over there because they always have something good! Plus, like I said earlier today, my pantry is super bare (more on that later…) So here’s what we had:


I made a super yummy Summer Salad with mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, onion, gorgonzola cheese, and strawberries with Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing!



We also had grilled teriyaki chicken sandwiches with pineapple. I only ate about 1/2 the bun before I discarded it.



With a small glass of Sauvignon Blanc!



Here’s it all together! It was so good and I’m stuffed!! I also had a few candy corns that my mom had in the candy dish!! Love Halloween candy!!


I ended up finding some new shorts today at Sports Authority. I really like running in spandex type shorts because they don’t move around very much and I wanted a pair a little longer than my others. All shorts end up rubbing my legs no matter what I do so it helps to have different lengths so they don’t all rub the same spot!! I am so ready to be able to wear my running capris and pants and not have to worry about this issue! Come on cooler weather!!


I decided that I am going to try meal planning and am working on that tonight! I will post more about that tomorrow! Have a great night!


  1. I just caught up on your last few posts. Your running is so STRONG!! I liked the song pics you posted. I also wanted to tell you that sometimes I listen to Carman on my runs. His music is so crazy and out there. You can really just zone out to it and it of course makes you feel invincible.

  2. Shorts really are the hardest part of the running outfit. Thanks to BodyGlide, I've been able to have a wider range of shorts lately. If you haven't tried it yet, don't go another day without it.

    Good luck on the quest!
    Oh, and meal planning is so admirable - go for it!
