Greetings from Minnesota! 20 degrees out, and I finally managed to get outside for a run during daylight. God made a great day, and I’ll have more to say on that in my “Running Tales.”
I’m not really the type to post a lot of food pictures on my blog, mostly because I blog about cows and running. Anyhow, I figure I can safely post this picture without appearing as though I’m impersonating a true food blogger because the quality is so poor. (cringe).
I have no excuse for this grainy photo other than it was about 9:00 by the time we got supper on the table, and I was ravenous. I thought this tasty little feast may make good blog content, but I only snapped one measly picture before proceeding to fill my empty belly. So I dressed the picture up with labels 🙂
If you would also like to create your own burrito/fajita hybrids, follow these easy-as-pie steps!
1) Start some chicken sauteing with onions, peppers, and your choice of Mexican seasonings
2) Make some rice and some beans; simply stir a can of beans in with the cooked rice if you want to use fewer dishes.
3) Chop more fresh onion, peppers, and tomato if you have them – or just get out the salsa.
4) Warm some tortillas and slice fresh avocado, olives and other veggies as desired.
5) Fill tortilla shells with rice, beans, chicken and veggies.
6) and this step is important… top with cheese and sour cream. (gotta get your 3-a-day of dairy, right??)
As I said above, I made it outside with my running shoes today. It was a pretty average paced run over wet and slippery streets, but it really felt awesome. I just kept breathing in and out, in and out, and marveling at how good it felt to be running. None of my parts hurt too badly, the wind was light to non-existent, and I managed to have just the right amount of layers on.
Even though it wasn’t super fast – 4.62 miles @ 9:22 – I give thanks for it just the same. Today totally reminded me of a song I learned back in Sunday School called “This is the Day.”
- “This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
After my harried post yesterday, I realize the need to slow down and enjoy the day for what it is. It’s a day the Lord has made.
Have any things you do to remember to appreciate each day?
Any restaurant foods you like to re-create at home?
