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!

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.

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!
