Nacho AVERAGE Nachos!!

Isn’t my title super creative? Haha, I’m such a nerd :) I really lack any creative bone in my body so when I came up with this title for tonight’s post while I was walking Sadie, I was so proud of myself! Haha!!

Let’s first start with today’s run. I had 6 miles on the schedule. I was a little worried about ice on the sidewalks and there actually was quite a bit! Luckily I never fell or busted my butt!! It was more crunchy than slippery so I was able to slowly run over the ice spots. Either way, it was a GREAT run!! It felt tough and I was getting a little frustrated a couple miles in, but I realized why it felt tough when I checked my mile paces! Average pace of 9:03!! Wow, I was movin!! No wonder it felt hard!! I did a hilly 6 miles in 54:17, which is my fastest 6 miler to date!! That’s 42 seconds faster than my NYE 6 miler!! I am seriously so impressed and happy with myself!! Here are my mile splits:

  • Mile 1: 9:31
  • Mile 2: 9:31
  • Mile 3: 9:10
  • Mile 4: 8:38
  • Mile 5: 8:54
  • Mile 6: 8:34

All I can say is WOW!! After my run, I took Sadie on a 1 mile walk where I brainstormed my awesome lunch and creative post title!! Haha!!


So onto lunch!! I took a cue from Lauren’s dinner last night, and made some Nachos!! And they were Nacho Average Nachos! Ha!


First, layer your dish with your favorite tortilla chips. Of course I used the Jalapeno Scoops!! Make sure you eat a couple while you work :)


Next, layer your toppings on top of chips. I used chopped tomato, spinach, onion, corn, jalapenos, and a little leftover taco meat from last night.


Top with whatever cheese your little heart desires!! I used shredded sharp cheddar.


Bake at 350* for 15 minutes!! Perfection!!


Look at that cheesy goodness!!


Topped with a dollop of light sour cream and Taco Bell hot sauce!! Y’all this was one of the BEST LUNCHES EVER!! Yum!! It was so ooey gooey and messy, a fork was definitely required!!


I also had an orange on the side. I love oranges!! I must buy them more frequently!! I hate peeling them though! Do y’all have any orange peeling tips??


My body was super tired this afternoon so I did a bunch of blog reading and a little school reading! Haha :)  Seriously, my Physiology book makes me want to poke my eyes out! I can only take a little bit at a time!

Snack was my usual combo:


1/2 cup Quaker oat squares and 1/2 TBSP each of PB and Chocolate chips. Also, Chai Spice Black Tea with a splash of skim milk. Yum!!


And dinner tonight was Pork Chops and Brussels!!


I took 2 Boneless pork chops and seasoned them with Chili Seasoning, Garlic Salt, and Pepper. Cooked on medium heat in EVOO for about 8 minutes each side. Then slathered on my favorite BBQ sauce and cooked 1 more minute each side.




I also roasted some brussel sprouts in EVOO, salt, and pepper at 400* for 30 minutes. I ended up dipping my brussels in ketchup! Took them to a whole new level! If you haven’t tried it, you must!! I also had a biscuit on the side! Love me some biscuits!!


Random wedding question: Are you supposed to invite your out of town friends and relatives to your bridal shower even through most of them probably won’t come??

I am currently watching American Idol so I better get back to it! As usual, cookies will be dessert tonight so y’all can picture those in your heads! Goodnight!!


  1. Those nachos look yummy! I will be trying that!

  2. Great job on that 6 miles! And those nachos look beyond average :D

  3. My mom said the rule of thumb is to invite people to showers who you're inviting to your wedding..however, I'm throwing my sister a shower in a few weeks, and her wedding is in Seattle. They're only inviting 75 guests but I'm inviting all of the same family friends we invited to my showers and weddings. So I guess an out-of-town wedding is a slightly different circumstance!!

  4. So glad I was able to inspire you with delicious nachos. No one should ever feel that they need to eliminate such good foods like this from their life! It would be a tragedy not to eat nachos! :)

    Great run today girl!!! :) You're awesome!
