How can it already be Thursday? Dang. This week is going by super fast.
Today I am thankful for my Mom. She’s awesome in so many ways. I’ll just focus on her cooking today! After my race on Sunday I went to her house and she made me Spanish bean soup. Apparently, it’s only called Spanish, I think it’s more of a Cuban inspired by Spanish dish.
I am a huge fan and it’s actually quite easy to prepare. But for whatever reason, I’ll never be able to make it taste quite as good as my mom’s.
Yes, that is a Diet Barq’s Root Beer. I hardly ever drink soda and my mom always has these. They are quite tasty if you’re in the mood. Some recipes for the soup can be found here, here, and here. My mom uses chorizo (Spanish sausage) instead of ham and boils the potatoes first. What are you thankful for today?
One of these days I need to meet your mommy!!! Next visit!
Today I am thankful for all the wonderful things that have come into my life since I began running and blogging. I've met so many amazing people and I'm so thankful for that!

Mmmmm! Bean soup! After a long run or a race I so crave beans (for the obvious protein). wish I could say that I grab dry beans, do the soaking business, and make it from scratch, but hey – I'm a guy! I grab a few cans of beans from the store (an assortment of kidney, black, white and garbanzo) and make a killer white chili (with chicken). Yumm! Heck. Now I'm hungry….
Say – put some in a tupperware and send it over!
