Meal of Dad’s Favorites

Happy Father’s Day, Dad!




I love you! (I need a newer photo of me and dad… this one is from May 2008!)


This weekend, I headed to Tampa to visit my dad. Luckily, my dad only lives about 1.5 hours away from me, so it’s easy to drive over for the day or weekend. I went to Tampa last Father’s day too!


I started my morning with a HOT run. According to my 10 Percent Increase each week plan, I was supposed to run 6.0 miles today to make it a full 15.0 this week. I got started a bit later than I would have liked, forgot water, and ended up only running 5.0 miles (total of 14.0 miles this week.) 

I finished in 52 minutes feeling extremely dehydrated. Note to self: BRING WATER!


Breakfast was delicious!



Blueberry Pancakes with maple syrup:



Shot glass worth of Orange Juice




After my run, I showered up, and met my family at their church. Once we returned home, we were all starving and ready for a delicious lunch of all dad’s favorites!



We started off with cheese pizza triangles.




Green beans with butter and spicy pepper




Baked beans with Bacon




Homemade Pasta Salad




Chicken on the grill




My plate:  a bit of each




I thought dessert was just mini cupcakes. I grabbed one of each:




They were BETTER than regular cupcakes. The white one was raspberry cheesecake, and the chocolate one was mousse!




These tiny little things were so rich! I savored every tiny bite of them.


I definitely have a sweet tooth! I love dessert!


Don’t forget to wish your dad a happy father’s day!
