OK, so I swore I’d never post pictures of me pre-, during,* or post-run.
*Seriously, how do y’all actually take pictures while running and still continue to be running?
But I figured I made Sister Smart take all of these awkward photos of me when we were in Wisconsin…*
*And yes, I’m still playing catch-up^ from that trip and subsequent days of merriment in Austin.
^Not to be confused with ketchup which is also fun to play with.
…and it would be a shame not to show them to you.
Also, I’d hate to miss an opportunity to make fun of Sister Smart inheriting our family’s “sweat” gene.Besides, since this wasn’t actually what I looked like when I was running…
*I would say “mistress” but that sounds like very dangerous cohabitation.
(When it was obviously not raining…?)Because I ran with the big dogs.
But yes, I ran with the big dogs. I “went out for a run”* and when it came time to turn back and wait at the park with my book while the two marathon running members of my family kept going…well, I kept going too.
*And no, Maria, not to the grocery store…although I did also do that.
[And yes, Sister Smart may have slowed herself down for all of us, but we're going to ignore that for the moment.]
OK, that’s it. Now that I’ve bragged about running a distance that to many people would be scoff-able, I have resumed my daily routine of reading US Weekly and watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians while on the elliptical.
Because this is a food blog (most of the time, anyway), you’ll be happy to know that we immediately made lemon and limeade pie* after our run.
“Dad, we can’t find a can opener, and the Juicy Juice method isn’t working.”
“Did you not see the electric can opener right behind you?”“Well. That’s just silly. Why isn’t it working?”
(This is where we all say, “How many Pembers does it take to open a can of milk?”)“Let me see that old-fashioned* one.”
(Makes 2 pies)
Note: This recipe is the same as for Pink Slip Pie, but without the addition of fresh fruit in the layers. So yes, I made it even less healthy.
1 8-oz. container Cool-Whip (or generic whipped topping), softened
1 14-oz. can fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 can frozen lemonade/limeade concentrate, melted
2 9-inch graham cracker pie crusts
1. Stir together whipped topping and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl.
2. Add half of the lemonade concentrate, and then increase amount to taste. [I prefer to use the whole can.]
3. Pour lemon-or-limeade filling into the prepared pie crusts.
