3 New and One Old - Recipe Sharing

This past week I decided to jump back on my Pinterst Challenge bandwagon and try 3 new recipes.  And to my surprise they all turned out well, and took no time to make at all!  Plus I had plenty of leftovers that were delicious and easy to pack for work!

These recipes were to good to keep to myself - check it out!

Spinach Feta and Rice Bake - From Kalyn's Kitchen

Delicious - The Feta added great flavor!  This dish was a great meatless main but you could easily top with grilled chicken or add some beans to keep it vegetarian!

Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers - From Natural Health Mag. 

Yes, I will admit I have a million stuffed pepper recipes on the blog!  But the thought of adding sweet potatoes to my pepper stuffing intrigued me.  The end results... delicious!  I cut the recipe in half and made one stuffed pepper.  I used the extra pepper stuffing to top a salad for lunch the next day!

Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal Bars - Sally's Baking Addiction

These bars are delicious and addicting!  They are not super sweet and have a wonderful peanut butter taste!  I made them for my team at work and got tons of compliments!  These make a great snack or a healthy dessert!  Make them as soon as you can!

I also dug this recipe out from the archives!
One of my Favorites!

Cooking Lights Spinach, Caramelized Onion and Feta Quiche 

I made this Quiche for Derek's cousin Nikki and her husband.  Derek and I took them dinner on Thursday night because they just had their little girl!  Their baby girl is adorable and I loved being able to spend the evening with them.  I have to say that I forgot just how much I love this Quiche, the guiche turned out perfect just as it always does!

Enjoy these fabulous recipes!

"Get Lucky" 7K Recap and St Patty's Day

Happy Monday Folks! 
Did everyone have a good weekend?  Celebrate St. Patty's Day?

Derek and I ran the "Get Lucky" 7K this past Saturday in honor of St Patricks Day and I could not be happier with the outcome of the race (Plus it got me excited for our Half Marathon)! 

I ended up running an average pace of 7:47 Min/Mile which is the fastest I have run a race!

Below are my official stats! 

Official Race Time: 33:50 
Average Pace: 7:47 per mile 
228th out of 9797 runners 
45th out of 7223 Females 
and 18th out of 1728 in my age group!!!!!

I am still in shock with my stats due to the fact that Saturday was insanely cold.  We are talking about 20 degrees when we started running!  Saturday was by far the coldest weather I have ever run in.  Thankfully the sun was shining Saturday which helped a little bit!  

Post race Derek and I met up with some of his friends at Kierens an Irish Pub downton Minneapolis!  Lets just say it was packed and most people at the Pub had run the race! 

It was a great way to enjoy the day and celebrate a great race!

How did you celebrate St. Patty's Day?
