Tamale Pie

Happy Friday! This morning I kicked my butt at the gym with a 35 minute tempo run as part of my half marathon training plan. I ran at a 8:46 min/mile pace and with a warm-up and cool down, I completed about 4.35 miles on the treadmill.

For some reason, after-work runs aren’t happening as often as I’d like. By the time I get home, it’s almost 6 pm, and by that time I’m starving!

Tonight we’re having a fun Olympics/Chinese takeout party with Brittney…at least, I hope her and Ryan want to watch the Olympics! I can’t wait for the track events coming up (obviously).

On Sunday, I have an article being published in our local paper about an Olympics party menu. I did a bunch of research on the topic, and some people were simply picking different types of cuisine for a party spread (think Mexican with French and Italian). I recently made this tamale pie, which would be perfect for a party or any weeknight dinner. I love how easy it comes together and most of you will already have these ingredients in your own pantry.


On my current to-make list:

These ultra-crunchy crackers from King Arthur Flour look better than anything you can buy at the store. Crackers have been on my list for some time, and I feel this recipe may be it.

I love Jessica’s blog, How Sweet it is. Her recipes and photos are just dynamite. This recipe for Brown Butter Peach Crumble Bars reminded me of the Savannah Bars I bought during our trip to the Appleton Farmer’s Market. Maybe this will be how I’ll finally use up my frozen peaches from last year.

Question: Which Olympic events are you must excited about? In addition to running, I love gymnastics and swimming.
