Suddenly Sore

It’s been a great Sunday!

Jason and I decided to check out the UCF Farmers’ Market. It just started last weekend, so we were unsure of what it would be like.


They had a great selection and the prices were decent.


Fruit and veggies make awesome pictures!

Since it was only the second week, some reporters were there from the Orlando Sentinel. Jason and I were interviewed and they followed us around and took pictures of us shopping while asking us questions!


I will have to remember to look for the article!

We LOADED up! All of these items were $11.00!!!


By the time we got home, I was STARVING!


Lunch consisted of:

free Chick-fil-a pattie from yesterday, sans bun (it was soggy!)…


…mini sweet potato with brown sugar…


…side of broccoli


… and a nibble of mac n’ cheese leftovers that Jason was having.


Oh yes, we cannot forget the pickle tasting!

Remember my list of foods I am afraid to try? Pickles were one of them!! Caitlin gave me one on Friday to try. EEEEEEWWW!!!


Me no like pickles. YUCKY!


I spent a good part of the afternoon doing homework…


…eating fruit…


..and munching on popcorn.


Jason and I made a HUGE pot of chili for dinner. Jason asked for my help to make a kick butt pot of chili for the ABC cook-off, so expect many chili dinners in the near future!

We used this recipe, and added a few extras. Some CRAZY stuff went in there!

  • Acorn Squash
  • jalapeño pepper
  • cocoa powder
  • beer
  • pinto beans
  • Chinese five spice
  • lime juice


I was unsure of how all the flavors would taste together, so I did a fair amount of taste testing.


While it was simmering on low, Jason and I went on a short stroll around the apartment complex to get the blood flowing in my legs. They have gotten soooo sore all of the sudden!!!

Anyways, once dinner was ready I was barely hungry. I had to try a bit, so I had a little bowl.


It is definitely a MUST TRY! The flavors went together PEREFCTLY!! I was so impressed!


I had a baby brownie for dessert!



I’m now icing my quads, and watching the Desperate Housewives premiere with BFF Debbie!!

My legs are hating me right now… they seem to be feeling worse! They are evenly sore, so I’m not too worried. (If only one hurt this bad, I would be worried that I injured something.)

I’m pretty sure this weekend went by too fast!

Off to bed!

  9. Don’t you just love Farmer’s Market!?!? You can’t beat the selection and prices, though I think some markets can still be a bit pricey at times.
