Pasta for Dinner

You know what this means…




Tomorrow is race day!




Rewind to Thursday…I was able to get in another run in my new shoes before work.




They are super comfortable, and I am excited to take them out for the 10 miler tomorrow.  I am just hoping that it doesn’t rain!




After my run, I packed up the Chocolate Covered Cake Batter Popcorn to bring to work.  It was WAY TOO addicting to keep around the house!  One thing that I learned is that you have to wait for everything to cool before packaging or you will end up with soggy popcorn.  It still tastes great, but you lose that popcorn crunch!




The popcorn was delicious, but I needed something healthier to fuel my race tomorrow.

I was craving my typical pre-race pasta with olive oil.  I picked up some veggies at Costco on my way home from work, and the BOY threw them on the grill with some shrimp.




He used our new Herbs de Provence olive oil on the veggies which was fantastic!




I tossed in some grilled shrimp…




And whole wheat pasta




I drizzled on a little olive oil and a sprinkle of aged parmesan cheese.

Dinner was incredible!  Even the BOY was raving about how good it was (he had the same thing, but with regular pasta).  He did such an amazing job seasoning the veggies and the Herbs de Provence is our new favorite olive oil.  If pasta always tasted this good, I would make it more often!




Now that I am loaded up with carbs, I am off to bed early.  The race starts at 7AM, so we will be up before the sun!

Wish me luck!  Not that I need it…tomorrow’s race is ALL ABOUT FUN!
