We went for a great run this morning amidst falling clumps of snow. The roads are now completely clear and there’s actually steam coming up from the earth! Don’t worry, I was VERY careful on my run not to look up at the icicles under the advice of Safety Guru Dwight K. Schrute:
It was actually really warm out there –
We ran to the Y so Matt could lift weights. It was about 2.25 miles each way, and I did 15 minutes on the Stepmill while we were at the gym. It was a fantastic run – light and airy.
Once home + showered, we made a delicious lunch featuring Kelsey’s Homemade Pimento Cheese! I LOOOOOVE pimento cheese but don’t eat it much because I am wary of the store-bought kind. I used to hate it, actually, when it would be on sandwiches at church suppers when I was little. Then I realized it was CHEESE! This recipe was so easy and required no special equipment other than a grater. Kelsey is a recipe genius!
The only change we made was using 2 tbsp of greek yogurt + 1 of lite sour cream because we ran out of sour cream! I think you could probably use all yogurt and it would still be delicious. I don’t think I’d use a regular yogurt though because it might be too sour/runny.
My sandwich on GH Dakota bread, lightly broiled.
It’s interesting to me that I didn’t calculate (or really care) about the nutritional information for this recipe. It crossed my mind to think about it, but then I thought even if I did know the nutritional info, I’d still put the same amount on my bread, so it wouldn’t matter and kind of shrugged it off. The year-ago me would have probably done the whole recipe by weight and calculated the nutritional info by grams. Plus, the volume of this is most shredded cheese with just a little light dairy mixed in, so it’s probably comparable to just putting the same volume of shredded cheese on your sandwich. 1/3 cup ~ 100 calories.
To go with my pimento cheese toast I had a huge spinach + veggie salad –
This was about 3-4 cups greens + lettuce tossed in POM dressing (see below), ~1/2 cup leftover roasted veggies, peppers, carrot, strawberries + almonds.
- 2 tbsp pom
- 1 heaping tsp mustard
- 1 tsp olive oil
- pinch salt
