Linking with Sar for Thursday Thoughts! :)
1. My first ever giveaway has ended!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Congrats Simone! Now we'll have matching bracelets! :)
2. I'm getting nervous already for my 5k. I've been googling average times and worrying that I'll place horribly. I read a story about a man who runs way faster than me and he got 138th! Eeeep!
Of course, my race only had about 80 people registered as of Monday. But I'd really like to not be last across the finish line!
3. I had this for dinner last night and it was Awesome. Seriously already wanting to make it again. I took pictures while I was cooking it, but forgot a picture of the final product. Whoops? But it's seriously so easy, you shouldn't need my pictures.
All you do is cook some pasta (they say penne, but I used rotini) like you normally would, throwing some broccoli in for the last two minutes. Strain that, then set it to the side. They say to reserve some pasta water, but I never remember to do that.
Then, in the same pot you just used, saute some onions and garlic in olive oil till the onions are lightly browned. Dump the pasta and broccoli back in, heat till it's warm, then top with ricotta and nom! I also added lots of parmesan. :)
Like I said, wayyy easy. It also only used one pot! If you click on the picture it'll take you to the pin, or you can go straight to the recipe here. Another bonus: the recipe is written to cook for one! Which is awesome because most recipes aren't, which makes it hard when you only cook for yourself. And if you want to make it for more, it's pretty easy to adjust! :)
4. I'm going to see the new Batman this weekend! We've watched the previous two movies over the last two weekends, so now I'm making Pat take me on a date to see the new one. :)
Other than that, we're going to KU's first football game and maybe playing cards with some friends! And, of course, I'll be running on Monday! (eeee!)
Do any of you have big plans this weekend? Can't wait to hear!
