a taste of home

I didn't run my 7 miles today.  I would like to run them outside and not on the treadmill so I am going to  head outside tomorrow.  It is supposed to be in the 50's so that sounds much better than running in 30 degrees today.  I did make it to the gym.  Instead of running I worked out on the elliptical.  So I am proud of that one.  Now if only that stupid number on the scale will start going down I will be really happy.

I made some yummy beef soup tonight.  So yummy I had two bowls.  Yeah not sure if that helps the good old scale go down.  But on a good note I had a salad for lunch.  I would show you a picture of the goodness but I was enjoying it so much I couldn't stop and take a picture.  Beef broth with onion, celery, a bit of tomato and beef pieces along with some egg noodles.  Reminds me my mom.  I usually request this soup when I go home to visit.  I have just recently started to make it myself.  It is really not hard at all.  And so nice to have a bit of home once in awhile.  Funny how some foods can just take you back to a specific place and person.

It looked sort of like this only no carrots and more beefy..less chickeny.  

What are some foods that remind you of home?

That sounds yummy.
Hey, was it you that wrote about the basketball guy at local races? There was a dude dribbling two basketballs at the DisneyWorld half last week.

I don't have super memories from growing up but I do always think of my dad when I make spaghetti casserole - the one meal I remember him making (unless a grill was involved).

None of the foods that remind me of home are any good for making my scale go down, but man are they yummy! Sometimes you just need comfort food! =)

Comfort food is the best..especially if it is from a family recipe..It somehow puts things in perspective.
