Today included classes and running. My run went well, it took a while for me to get into the groove but after 1.5 I was there. I always feel SO good when I run, why did I just start now? I hit 5 miles again today! This Saturday is "Wine at the Line" at Mallow Run! My second marathon and I get to run with my friend ElAnn :)

Here is what I munched on after my run. Plenty of protein and "good" carbs to fuel my body.
I was working on homework last night and Mark said, "Hey babe look to your left." This is what I saw...ha!
Dinner tonight was semi-homemade. I purchased a Honeysuckle White Lemon Garlic Turkey Breast Tenderloin and popped it in the oven on Low Broil for 40 minutes. Totally awesome and easy! Very moist.

I have a new love for Orzo. If you haven't tried it you need to it's cheap, easy, and yummy! It's basically pasta in the shape of rice. I've had this recent thing with Parmesan, I want to use it in everything I make!

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

2 cups Orzo
1 tsp minced garlic
3 tbsp diced red onion
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp parsley
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese

Cook orzo as directed. (2+ cups water, until boiling, pour in orzo, cook for 9 minutes covered on med low)
Strain water and put pasta into a separate bowl.
Stir in all ingredients. You can serve this warm or cold, it's great either way.

I also had some of my Traders Point Cottage Cheese!
