Tried and True


Friday means date night! After work, Runner and I went on a 3 mile run. We had a gorgeous view of the Capitol and Washington Monument. The highlight of the evening was Z-Burger for dinner. We sat outside to enjoy the perfect weather.

Speaking of good eats… I am by no means a fancy chef, but I have enough kitchen tools that I think I am. I want to share a few of my favorite, tried and true recipes. Perfect for weeknight meals to feed your hungry runner.

Taco night – for anyone who is just starting out cooking. Buy a pound of ground beef and a packet of taco seasoning and follow the directions on the packet. Chop up your favorite toppings and you’ll have a meal in under 30 minutes. Don’t forget the sour cream and salsa.

Cheesy Volcano Meatballs – when I shared this recipe with my sister, she asked if the meat had to be browned before it could be used to make the meatballs. True story.

Baked Chicken Tenders -instead of the egg mixture I sometimes use ranch dressing or barbeque sauce.

Juicy Mitras – this is what we call it when I make Juicy Lucys. Make a basic burger but stuff some American cheese in the center of the patty.

Corn Salsa – our newest love, so simple.

And when all else fails, sometimes boxed Mac ‘n Cheese just hits the spot.
