Being Busy

Okay, so I didn’t run 6 miles.  But I’ll get to that in a second.  First, I’d like to share my latest recipe with you:

Veggie Chow Mein
Makes 2 servings

We had the Broccoli Slaw in the fridge, and I wanted to use it up.  Not knowing exactly what I wanted to do, I tossed this together.  I loved it.  Anna loved it.  And said it reminded her of Chow Mein.  Hence the name. 

Ingredients:
1 12oz bag of Trader Joe’s Broccoli Slaw Mix (essentially shredded broccoli stalk and shredded carrots)
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Unsalted Butter
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
1/4 cup Unsalted Dry Roasted Peanuts

Instructions:
Heat butter and oil in pan over medium heat with red pepper flakes until crackling.
Add broccoli slaw mix and saute for 5 minutes
Add vinegar and cook until evaporated
Stir in hoisin sauce and peanuts, heat and serve

Let me know if you try it.  I’m excited to make it again!

Okay, now to the running.  I know that I told you that if I didn’t run six miles today, that you should give me crap.  Well, I didn’t run six miles.  But you can’t give me crap.  I ran 6.31!  So it’s not too much higher than the 6 I wanted to do, but it’s still realy respectable.

Now, to keep this up, I’m asking you guys to hold me accountable to running/walking 4 miles tomorrow.  This sure helps!
