Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I talk all things running, food, and kids! Join my healthy living adventure, and enjoy life!


I'm getting back into the menu planning game and I'm linking up with Jill and Laura (who just ran the Houston Marathon and BQ'd TODAY, so go congratulate her!).  I used to do really good with menu planning and then I just got away from it.  Brooke asked me if it saved money and I honestly don't know but like I told her, it brings a sense of organization to my otherwise crazy life.  

So here is what I have planned for the week!

Monday:  Blackened tilapia and roasted veggies (broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower)
                  This is meatless Monday for Start Clean 2013

Tuesday:  Pad Thai (without the chicken) and peanut chicken

Wednesday:  Chili

Thursday:  Crockpot Potato Soup and salad

Friday:  Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

I'll also be making smoothies tonight to freeze and thaw for breakfasts on the go.  If I have time I'll make another batch of my granola since a certain 4 year old might have eaten the last of it.  Here is the recipe for my new friend, Kristin!


Honey Cinnamon Granola

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1.5 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
2 teaspoons cinnamon

1.  Heat brown sugar, honey, and vanilla over medium heat until it all dissolves, stirring frequently.
2.  Pour oats into a medium bowl and add flax seed and cinnamon.
3.  Pour sugar and honey mixture over oats and stir until completely combined.
4.  Spread wet mixture over a silpat covered cookie sheet.
5.  Bake in 325 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
6.  Remove cookie sheet and let granola cool.  It will harden as it cools.
7.  Store in a ziploc bag or some other airtight container.
