So Much Pumpkin!

After making pumpkin scones yesterday, I have a ton of leftover pumpkin puree to use up.  Tragic, I know.  ;)

With that in mind, I decided to start the day with some Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa:

IMG_3513I replaced a bit of the milk and water with about a tablespoon of pumpkin puree, and topped with a tablespoon of chocolate chips.  If you still haven’t tried quinoa for breakfast, go try it soon!  To learn how to make it, go here.

And expect a post soon about why quinoa is my favorite grain. :)

To get some fruit in, I paired my quinoa with a peach:

Readers be warned: a lot more pumpkin will be showing up on the blog in the next few days.  Who am I kidding?  Pumpkin always shows up on the blog.  But now I have a lot of it that needs to be used up soon!

Lesson Learned

I learned a very important lesson after my long run last night:  You will be tired after a long run.  This is no excuse to not fully stretch afterwards.  If you don’t stretch, you will be in a lot of pain a few hours later.  Now my lower back hurts.  A lot.  Today is definitely a rest day!

Here’s hoping my back feels better by Sunday morning for my 15K!

Weekend Plans

I’m pretty pumped about this weekend.  Want to know what’s on the agenda?

Friday evening:  SWE Fall Ball. Kelley, Jenny, Wendy and I are going to be the security/registration people/DDs (designated drivers) all night, which I’m actually kind of excited about.  It means we get to see everyone who comes to the dance and talk to everyone.  It doesn’t hurt that the location this year is awesome:  the beautiful theatre on State Street.  Which, by the way, just happens to be attached to the museum where our wedding is going to be!

Saturday morning:  Farmer’s Market. I haven’t gone in 2 weeks, due to being in California.  I miss it!

Saturday afternoon: Madison Food & Wine Show. Hopefully.  :)

Sunday morning:  My first 15K!

Sunday afternoon/evening: Cooking party! Several of my friends have been asking me to teach them to cook, so we’re getting together on Sunday to make some simple, healthy dishes!

What are your plans for the weekend?

    Your weekend sounds like a blast! Mine is fairly boring. Lots of relaxing going in. Just how I like it!

    This weekend will be loads of fun, but I need more relaxing weekends! :)

    That is what my normal weekends look like, but this weekend we only have plans on Saturday night and I am so excited.

    We are out of town every weekend in November!

    Congrats on your PDR in your last post! And wow, what an exciting weekend you have. :)

    Quinoa is my favorite grain too, it’s practically perfect!

    I haven’t tried it yet: I’m looking forward to hearing why quinoa is your favorite grain.
