Nailed it with a side of weekly goals

I’m gonna let you in on a not so big secret, I’m not a wonderful cook. That doesn’t mean I don’t cook, because I cook 6 nights a week(Friday is date night). I’m just not that great at it…yet. I’m determined to get better.  So, yesterday me and my SIL made dinner for my FIL’s bday. She made a delicious shrimp pasta and I was in charge of bread sticks. Instead of just buying them I went out of my comfort zone to make them from scratch.

Let’s just say I’m glad I did a test run Saturday night. . .nailed it!

Now that I know how to make them, they’re actually pretty easy, fast, and tasty. Moral of the story: always do a test run when feeding other people, and don’t give up=)

We had fun listening to Christmas music and watching a Christmas devotional. Then we enjoyed some yummy dessert, cookies and pie. Grandpa got help blowing out his candles from cousin C.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. I bet you guys are getting so much snow, I can’t imagine. Makes you so lucky to have that treadmill indoors.
