This weekend I am running my 5th 5K race and my friend Patti is running her first 5K race on her 30th Birthday tomorrow! My friend Kev is also running his first 5K race tonight and I’ll be there to cheer him on. Sunday, my friend Jess is biking 15 miles in the Tour de Cure for Diabetes for her Dad who has diabetes. So, it’s going to be a weekend of exercise and races! Love it!
But don’t you worry – there will be plenty of play time too! Saturday night is Patti’s 30th Birthday party with an “Old Hollywood” theme. I have a cute dress and I’ll be sure to take many pictures! Hint: Polka Dots and red lipstick! hehe!
Sunday, Wholesome Husbands’ fam is coming over for a BBQ and I have quite the menu planned: fresh lemonade, Italian copped salad, homemade guac, my yummy kabobs on the grill, corn on the cob, healthy baked onion rings and campfire cookies (see: chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows FTW).
Holy mother. These people better come hungry!
Recipes coming soon!
But here’s a great one to hold you over!
Whole Wheat Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
Adapted from Prevention RD
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup fatfree milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz. part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
4 oz. turkey pepperoni, quartered (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 Tablespoon fresh basil, finely diced
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and oregano; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.
3. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups.
Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
4. Warm the pizza sauce, then stir in 1 tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping. Yield: 24 pizza puffs. Serving size 1 pizza puff.
Taste Test: These were not my favorite taste wise, but they’d be fun for kids or as finger food appetizers at a party! This husband thought they were pretty good!
Are you running any races this weekend?
Whatever you do, have a great one!
