Holy crap – I totally forgot to pick a winner of the free entrance fee to a Spartan Race in 2014!  I put everyone’s name on a piece of paper, then picked one:

Tony picked me up some strawberries at Sam’s Club the other day – they are huge!

I was worried that they might not taste good, but these are delicious.  I ended up making zucchini/egg white breakfast tacos.  Tomatillos were on sale last weekend so I made some tomatillo salsa.  The only bad part about these tacos were that they were really watery – I should have squeezed out more of the moisture out of the zucchini, but these were delicious.

I ended up slicing the strawberries – I can’t believe this is only two strawberries!

I tested my blood sugar right before working out – it was only 145.  I ended up eating a tangerine to bring it up a bit.  I wanted to run, but thought it would be better if I walked, so I did the treadmill for 40 minutes – 3.8 mph at 9.5 incline.

I was flipping channels when I was working out and stumbled upon the Travel Channel.  It was a show about southern BBQ.  Lordy lew I loves me some BBQ.   This show is a woman from Canada (hi Roz!) who is a competitive BBQ cook and also does a BBQ crawl.  Could you imagine getting paid to eat BBQ?  She was driving through Alabama, and ended up at a place called Big Bob Gibson BBQ – home of the white BBQ sauce.  Wait.  Hold up.  White BBQ sauce?  Why have I never heard of that before??  They used it as a mop sauce for their chicken.  Of course, as soon as I got back to the office I had to look it up.  I found this recipe on Southern Living – it’s mayonnaise, water, vinegar, pepper, creole mustard, salt, sugar, garlic and horseradish – holy moly I cannot wait to try this the next time we grill a chicken.  Have you ever heard of it??

I ended up having soup that I brought home from the restaurant over the weekend – it’s one of my favorites – sounds weird but it’s delicious – tomato basil soup with . . . blue cheese!  About every other bite I’d get the tang of the blue cheese.  I made a grilled cheese sammie on the panini maker on the side.

Tony called me in the afternoon and wanted to know what I had planned for dinner.  I told him taco salads and when I didn’t get much of a response after that I asked him what he wanted.  We had some brats in the fridge and he wanted to know if we could grill those up.  Yup!  I had baked a couple potatoes over the weekend, and Tony asked for twice baked potatoes.  Done and done.

That would be sauerkraut and green peppers on mine.  Afterwards I thought it needed to get kicked up a notch, so I added pickled jalapenos.  It was 40 degrees out when I grilled – this meal just tasted like summer!  We had a winter storm warning last night, but happily, we only got two of the 8 inches predicted.  Isn’t it crazy to be happy about only getting two inches of snow in the nearly middle of March??!!

Time to get my shit together and scrape off the car.  Make it a great day!
