appy cinco de Mayo!
It's too bad that the 5th of May fell on a Wednesday this year. If it would have been on the weekend I would have had a Mexican fiesta! Today, I just felt like having a siesta.
I woke up to snow, and all day it was rainy, windy and ugly.
The other day I got so many great tips for running, and I haven't been able to go running due to this weather :-( There is NO way I will finish the 15 runs left in my C25K plan before my 5K on May 30th. I am going to have to just do what I can and hope for the best.
This morning I made some warm oats to take my mind of the snow outside.
Made with: 1/2 cup coffee, 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, 1/2 cup quick oats, 1/2 a banana, 1 T almond butter, 1 t maple flakes, 1/2 t mini chocolate chips.
Lunch was 2 slices of ham, leftover rutabagas, 2 clementines, and 1/2 cup of yogurt with 1 T granola.
Dinner was one of my favourite meals from when I was a kid at summer camp. We always used to call this meal "Haystacks" because you literally stack everything up in a big pile. It is basically like a taco salad - but better.
When the hubby and I first got married and I made him these, he insisted that we have them once a week, EVERY week. I thought that they would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo.
Stack the following ingredients on a plate in this order, and then eat:
1) Cooked rice (I used brown - 1/2 cup)
2) Sprinkle of cheese (I used 2 T)
3) Taco beef (I used organic extra lean, browned, with an organic taco seasoning - 1/2 cup)
4) Chopped tomatoes
6) A few taco chips crumbled on top
You can also add: lettuce, black olives (we always add them), and anything else you would like in a taco ... sour cream etc..
They are so easy to make, yet they please everyone who tries them! This was always the favourite meal of the kids at the summer camp I used to go to. We looked forward to them all week.
Nom, nom, nom!
This evening I had a small non-fat, decaf latte from Starbucks, and a glass of fresh juice (2 grapefruit, 1/3 cantaloupe, 1 red pepper). Grapefruit juice is divine with a pepper added in.
What would you put on your perfect haystack?
