The Pacing Fluctuation

I took my new running partner

for a nonstop run of 3/4 mile. Not too bad considering I haven’t jogged a lick since February!

These two

do not make good running partners. The dog is seventy pounds and whips me from one side of the sidewalk to the other, no matter which side I am on! The girl complains after a quarter of a mile.

I will try for two miles tomorrow. The pace is slow, slow enough for me to catch up to the chihuahua.

I made this for breakfast.

Eggs with turkey kielbasa, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes. Went well with the black bean and corn salad I made yesterday.

Also I made this for lunch.


I found this baked ziti recipe over on The Quick and Dirty Cook and modified it a bit for our kitchen. I used rotini instead of ziti, omitted crushed red pepper for the kids (I added it to my own portion later), and added more veggies like zucchini, mushrooms, and carrots. The ricotta melted into the pasta was so good! I did what the recipe called for in that I used small spoonfuls of ricotta over the layer of pasta. Just enough to make it creamy, but not enough for the kids to say, “I don’t want any cheese on mine!”
