New Addition...(10.19.2008)

This weekend has been a really good one. Saturday night, Kevin made his famous Chicken Marsala over fresh linguine. I have been hearing about this since we started dating, but this is the FIRST time he made it (after a year and a half!!). It was amazing!! I will be posting his recipe soon (hopefully tomorrow) - definitely something to have every once in awhile since it isnt really healthy for you. But totally worth it. Here is a picture to get you interested...This morning, I woke up and ate a piece of toast with AB and fig jam before the run. I ran 6 miles and felt good. It was freezing and windy this morning, so I wore long sleeves and my head thingee for my ears. Kevin and I started out with 2 miles around the park with Oscar. Kevin had to quit after the park loop as well because of a bad "runner" toe. Just gross. But he got on his bike and rode with me for the rest of my run. So that was nice!

After the run, Kevin whipped up some protein shakes with vanilla protein powder, skim milk, a banana, and some frozen berries. The Fancy glass made it taste better. ;)We got free, last minute tickets to a jazz wine festival out at Linganore Winery and decided to head out there and also pick up a pumpkin at Larriland Farm. It was a perfect fall day and we had a great time at both places! I was SO happy to find more PUMPKIN BUTTER at the farm...yessssss!!I wasnt too hungry for a big dinner because of lots of wine and food at the festival - Kevin and I split a crab cake, each had a cup of crab soup, and then apple fritters - sorry no pics...but everything was great! Getting home, I wanted to use the pumpkin butter, so I made a small bowl of 0% fage, GoLean Kashi crunch, pumpkin butter, and almond butter. This is a great combo!Tonight we also brought home a new addition to the house - a kitten!!! We are calling her LUCY and hoping she is a girl - havent been able to check yet. She and two of her siblings somehow crawled into my dad's car and drove home with him from work. My parents drove up the driveway and saw them playing under the car. The kittens then proceeded to crawl back up in the engine! My dad said he had seen some cats around the parking lot at his work. So anyways, we stopped out there and were able to grab Lucy, so we could bring her home and begin the spoiling process. She is really scared right now, but I am so excited to see the interaction between Oscar and Lucy, once she gets more comfortable.

Good night everyone! Oh and Hail to the Redskins! :)

that chicken marsala looks incredible- in my meat eating days, that meal was one of my favorites.
smoothies are always better in a fancy glass :D especially after a great run!

Oh my gosh your new kitten is so freaking cute! How fun! How is she adjusting to her new home? I love fancy glasses, they make every beverage better :)

There was so much about this post that I loved, but LUCY IS MY FAVORITE! HI LITTLE BABY!
I hope she really is a girl. I had a hamster that I gave a girl name, but later we found out he was a boy and I felt bad. :)

erica & all/lucy is doing OK - we have her closed off in the extra bedroom, so she feels safer. She ate all of her food over night and we found her hiding behind the chest of drawers. Hopefully we can coax her out tonight!
