I hope you are all having fabulous weekends. Happy Super Bowl Sunday, for those of you in the U.S.! Matt just left to make the drive back up to D.C. a bit early so he can catch the game with all his guy friends — they are all from Pittsburgh and pretty pumped. Go Steelers!
We had a really relaxing weekend. Yesterday was super rainy and cold, so the girls and I postponed our long run until today. A rainy Saturday morning with nothing to do? That calls for pancakes
Mmmm. I made the pancakes using this whole grain buckwheat pancake mix — my fave! I followed the directions on the back except that I used applesauce instead of oil and added in a little ground flaxseed and LOTS of cinnamon
We made two blueberry and two banana:
And there was only ONE flipping fail! I rule.
Matt topped his with butter and maple syrup…
…and I topped mine with nonfat plain Greek yogurt and maple syrup
I love the combination of maple syrup and plain yogurt — it adds a nice tang!
In other news, I’m never eating another non-panini pressed sandwich again.
I made us sandwiches for lunch yesterday using 1 small can of chunk light tuna and 1 small can of salmon, mixed together with 2 laughing cow cheese wedges, and a hefty couple squirts of dijon mustard. Topped with avocado and spinach!
Into the panini press they went… and out came total deliciousness. The insides were all warm and flavorful and the outside was super toasty. Perfection!
We had some orange slices on the side and I also gave Matt a small cup of my Two Ingredient Lentil Soup — he loved it! Most simple and awesome recipe ever
Last night’s adventure was the UNC Women’s Gymnastics meet! It was their first home meet and Matt and I went with a few of my friends.
It was actually really fun — I was a gymnast when I was little (and so was Matt, actually!)and it made me miss it!
Plus, I made a new friend:
I’m off to relax, get some work done (hopefully outside… it’s a beautiful day!), and eventually watch some of the Super Bowl. Have a wonderful day! I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of our 7 mile training run today. It was a hard but good one!
