Polar Bear Run...or walk if you're not a runner-girl

Gigi put this pic up too..I can't believe the kids here, they're so tough (or just crazy!)
These 2 look more comfortable Lifeguarding at the pool or in my son's room playing X-Box
3 bundled up bloggers!

Last Sunday I participated in the annual Polar Bear run, I think there were over 90 people running and walking! That's big for our little town!
I've been working out at the pool or the gym every day for 60-90 min and eating whole foods, it's been hard. No refined sugar for almost 2 days (that is a record!)
My organic produce arrived today (just in time as a bad storm is predicted) so I have sooooo much to get eaten up, I've got cauliflower, carrots, 2 or 3 heads of lettuce, snap peas, collard greens (what the heck do I do with those?) onions and shallots, avocado, pineapple, tons of oranges and apples of several varieties, lemons, 2 zucchinis, grape tomatoes, red potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes and sweet potatoes too, cucumbers, pears, red peppers and bananas.

I need to make a few dishes quickly before they all go bad!!

Giant salad tonight!!!! Maybe black bean and sweet potato enchiladas??? hmmm....


  1. I know where SP and I are showing up unexpectedly at dinner time!

  2. If I could get to your house I would meet Alena there! Sounds yummy!! As for the collard greens, you boil them up with some ham hock and onions and garlic. Typical southern dish. I would love to have your recipe for black bean and sweet potato enchiladas. I love almost any kind of enchiladas.

  3. ohh sindee...NO! No bones ever LOL. I've got a giant freezer full of boneless meat. Can't see fat, gristle (sp?) or bones ever!
    My husband loads it up with salmon, halibut, crab and pretty moose...nothing icky for me to work around.
    Alena suggested boiling the greens for a long time...that sounds stinky!! I better look around a bit. I can't do either suggestion.
