I Can NOT Be Trusted with Blondies

Well helllooo there! So last week, I tried another one of Trader Joe's frozen dinners. Me eat something from Trader Joes? unheard of! Anyways, this was the Tilapia Citronette - marinated tilapia fillets topped with grilled asparagus and sliced carrots.
Wanted to give the frozen view...there was two large fillets in there. Plenty for Kevin and I.
After following the directions for baking in the oven...the fish came out perfectly flaky and the sauce was flavorful. I would definitely buy this meal again.
Last week was a busy week with lots of fun stuff. A friend of mine was in town from Missouri, so we played trivia on Tuesday night at Rams Head Tavern, went out Thursday night to Looneys and saw a good band, Friday was a crab feast at a friends house, Saturday was another cookout, then America's largest free arts festival. SO fun, but I regret not taking more pictures!

(Camey, Ashley and I at Looneys)

Even with all the festivities going on, Saturday morning, I managed to get up and make it to my dad's training run. My friend Mara was in town and came along for the 6 mile run on the B&A (Baltimore & Annapolis) Trail. The weather was great - not too hot and the path was mostly shaded.


The run was extremely difficult for me and as we got farther along, I felt myself needing to go slower and slower. Wake Up Call! The weekend long runs are KEY and have been few and far between over the past month or so.


After the painful run, I took Oscar for a slow walk and then came home to an exciting surprise.A package from Jasmine @ SweetandFit!! Awhile back I donated to a great cause - the Lupus Walk in DC - and ended up winning a batch of Jasmine's Banana Butterscotch Blondies!I had to dig in IMMEDIATELY.oh. my. goodness. These are the most incredible things - they basically melt in your mouth. I am embarrassed to admit this but they got here on Saturday and are ALL GONE. It is Monday. oh man. I did have a little help, but still! I ate so many and am now dreaming of them. They were seriously THAT good.


Just because - she threw in a jar of chocolate PB2 and I cant wait to try it out. yessss.Thanks Jasmine - you rock!


Be back tomorrow with more about Artscape, a mountain bike workout, and a planned off-road brick workout tomorrow night.


Hope everyone is doing well...

Blondies are seriously addicting. Veggiegirl sent me a whole batch and I polished them off by myself in three days! They were amazing!

I've never tried the TJ's tilapia. I love almost all of their frozen dishes.
