Pinning and Planning – Week of June 29 {Dinner Menu}

Did you know that Monday is Social Media Day? Every day is social media day for me, but I guess I should step up my game tomorrow. There are few local events happening in Tampa to celebrate the day (a lunch event at the Yard of Ale and one at Golfer’s Grail in the evening). I’m hoping to make the Mashable evening event with my two older kids in tow. I think they will enjoy practicing their golf swing and social media skills.

Social Media Day 300x231 Pinning and Planning   Week of June 29 {Dinner Menu}

I love that Fourth of July falls on a Friday this year. I love when holidays bring a long weekend and this year, we’re celebrating with a patriot potluck at our friends’ house. I’m looking forward to swimming, fireworks and the chance to catch up with old friends. Life has been so busy for all of us these days and I love that the holiday weekend allows us the chance to pause those busy schedules and spend the day together.  It’s been way too long!

For our contribution to the patriotic potluck, Allan and I are bringing Buffalo Chicken Burgers, Patriotic Potato Salad, and a new recipe I’m concocting, Quinoa Berry Cobbler. Fortunately for me, my friends are just as good food conscious as me and they love trying new flavorful healthy dishes.

Speaking of healthy patriotic dishes for the Fourth of July, I’m definitely making this red, white and blue “Spangled Smoothie” for my kids. It has some lengthy steps, so I guess I’m going to need to make it the night before. Otherwise, we’ll be drinking it for lunch.

Here’s what other yummy things up I’m cooking up for the week. Presenting this week’s dinner menu!

#SundaySupper – Grilled NY Strip Steak with Chimichurri and Baked Frites

Meatless Monday – Cauliflower and Arugula Stuffed Portobellos with a Mixed Greens Salad

Tuesday – Tampa Bay Bloggers Tasting at Roux

Wednesday – Grilled Tilapia with Skinnytaste’s  Southwest Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Medley

Thursday – Copycat Chipotle Burrito Bowls with Cilantro Lime Rice

Liam’s Preschool {Little Gators} Graduation

I cannot believe that a whole school has flown by! It seemed like just yesterday I dropped my Little Lion Man off for his first day of preschool.  Liams Preschool {Little Gators} Graduation In the beginning, I had such guilt about my baby attending part-time preschool. Months later, now I have guilt about changing preschools in the fall for a center closer to home.

The mama guilt never ends.

 Liams Preschool {Little Gators} Graduation

For the graduation ceremony, the high school students who operate the preschool made each child their caps and gowns.

 Liams Preschool {Little Gators} GraduationThe tops of the mortar boards named what each child wanted to be when they grew up. Titles like “mermaid”, “mom”, “teacher”, “spaceman”, graced the top of the caps, but Little Lion Man chose to “Firefighter”.

 Liams Preschool {Little Gators} Graduation

This small ceremony also honored the graduating high school seniors who spent several years devoting so much love and time into running the program.

During the reception, the teachers also handed out superlatives and named Liam “best dressed”, which made me giggle. It must be his surfer blonde locks that earned him that award.

As part of the ceremony, the children sang a song which has been sung at all three preschool graduations. Hearing this song again so many years after Emmalynn’s graduation gave me such a lump in my throat.

But it was the scrapbook full of Liam’s crafts and photos throughout the year that brought on the real waterworks.

We will truly miss Little Gators preschool, the many memories and the many blessings it brought us.

Man Food for Father’s Day: Pollo al Peperoncino #SundaySupper

sundaysupper Man Food for Fathers Day: Pollo al Peperoncino #SundaySupperLike most spouses these days, my husband’s job requires him to travel often and he is becoming quite the jet setter these days. With traveling comes opportunity to taste the most amazing cuisines. Being the foodie type, he has quite a refined palate and thankfully, the foods he has experienced on his travels have satisfied his sophisticated taste buds.

Sadly for me, while holding down the fort back home in Florida, I live vicariously through his boastful texts and drool inducing photos. When he returns home, I marinate in the retelling of his culinary adventures. They always sounds so amazing. *sigh*

Fortunately for me, my husband loves to replicate his culinary adventures, which is what deemed him the title “Iron Chef Allan” in the first place. Although he has no formal culinary training, he has such a knack for recreating the right flavor profile for most dishes. It’s truly a wonder and a skill I hope to develop and refine myself.

His latest copycat creation came from a restaurant in San Jose, California. While dining at the Il Fornaio, Iron Chef Allan fell in love with the Petto di Pollo al Peperoncino, a spicy chicken dish rich with fresh herbs and lemon. Without a recipe and just the description of the dish based the online menu, he replicated the flavor profile like only Iron Chef Allan could.

 Man Food for Fathers Day: Pollo al Peperoncino #SundaySupper

With a two-step marinate and rub, the chicken dish packs a lot of heat, an intense flavor and produces the juiciest chicken. Before marinating, he butterflied a whole chicken following Rachel Ray’s How-To here. Her method, allows the chicken to lie more evenly on the grill. By removing the spine with this method, it allows the chicken to lie more evenly on the grill. Once butterflied, he place the chicken in an oven bag with all the ingredients for the marinade.

 Man Food for Fathers Day: Pollo al Peperoncino #SundaySupper

While the bird grilled, he brushed it with some of the reserved marinade.

 Man Food for Fathers Day: Pollo al Peperoncino #SundaySupper

He then grilled each side for about 30-40 minutes, allowing the internal temperature to reach 165 degrees.

The results are truly the finest of man food east of the Rockies.

My Mother’s Day {2014}

Twelve years ago I became a mom and every day I am amazed by our beautiful children. During my long dog-days of motherhood, I’ve come to realize that my family’s love and some help with a few housework chores is all I really need.

 My Mothers Day {2014}

When it came to celebrating Mother’s Day this year, I really had no idea how I wanted to celebrate it. With Allan traveling so much the weeks before the holiday, I could barely manage planning dinner, never mind making plans for a Mother’s Day celebration. Sometimes not having a plan produces the best plans and it really proved to be true this year.

In the end, I requested a pedicure and a nice meal followed by a sunset on the beach.  And that’s just what I got.

My parents stopped by for a Mother’s Day brunch. My mom has such simple tastes and a brunch prepared by Allan is always her favorite present. French toast, veggie omelets, biscuits and gravy, bacon and home fries were among some of the items on menu.

After breakfast, Allan, the kids and I headed to our community pool for a Mother’s Day splash.  Lots of food, some R&R, sun in the fun was just what this mama needed.

Pinning & Planning: Mother’s Day and Dinner Menu for Week of May 11

PinningPlanning RunDMT Pinning & Planning: Mothers Day and Dinner Menu for Week of May 11If you read my post on Tuesday, then you know we had some difficulty nailing down some Mother’s Day plans. I am happy to report plans have been made and reservations have been set for dinner at Salt Rock Grill for Saturday evening. After our scrumptious Salt Rock Grill meal, my family and I will enjoy a delicious Florida sunset on the beach.

For Mother’s Day, Iron Chef Allan will prepare his famous breakfast spread complete with veggie omelets, biscuits and gravy, waffles, bacon, sausage links. Of course, my glass will runneth over with mimosas too.  (Did you see Cupcake Prosecco is on sale this week at Publix?) It’s a good thing I’m running a 10K on Saturday to make room for all the food I will be consuming over the next two days.

Also on the buffet will be a chocolate babka for my mom. Tune into tomorrow’s Mother’s Day Sunday Supper to learn the story behind the babka. After breakfast (if we can move), I would love to head down to the beach again for some Mother’s Day fun in the sun.

For us, Mother’s Day doesn’t end on Sunday though because we will continue to honor mothers on Monday too. On Monday evening, I’m meeting my mom, my sister and two friends (a mom and daughter duo as well) for a special dinner edition of the Brunch Babes.

For years, the five of us have planned regular get-together usually around breakfast, hence the name Brunch Babes; however, when we move our get-togethers to an evening time, we call ourselves the Dinner Divas. (Clever, huh?) So that’s what Monday is, a Dinner Divas date post-Mother’s Day.

And you thought Mother’s Day was only one day?  That’s why I’m one bad mother runner.

But the fun doesn’t end there! I’m also hosting a Moms’ Night Out movie watching party at the West Shore AMC on Tuesday night. I have tickets and prizes to share. If you want to join me, RSVP on my Facebook event page here.

RANdom Thoughts about Stress, Mother’s Day and a Much Needed MNO

Before kids, probably even before we were married, Allan and I had multiple discussions about traveling related to jobs. Growing up, my dad traveled so much and my sister and I felt the stress it put on my mom. I never wanted that for my kids. Unfortunately, in a global market, companies require their employees to travel more. My family has felt that demand firsthand.

As of late, Allan has been traveling so much forcing me to become a flying solo parent and his absence leaves me with way more than I can handle. I become easily agitated and very irritable. The stress is slowly chipping away at me and I’m losing my energy and spirit.

With a schedule that changes weekly, it’s hard to find a training schedule I can stick to and I find myself running less, which makes me even sadder. Running would definitely help with the stress. My life at the moment reads like a really bad novel. Motherhood of the Stressful Running Pants

Thankfully, my ankle felt better last Friday so I could fit in some Body Pump and a run. Since it was rainy and icky, I attempted to run three miles on the treadmill with an average pace around 10:30 mm. Not great, but at least I ran.

It rained Saturday, so I went for a make-up run on Sunday with some Striders.

Yesterday, I hoped to do my usual Monday morning cross-training spin class, but I accidentally attended a cycle circuit training class at the Y. A sub was in for the regular instructor and she mixed in HIIT (high intensity interval training) spin with some conditioning stuff. At first, it was a shock to my system but once I got into the groove, it offered a nice change. We would get our heart rate up on the bike and then do some conditioning exercises off the bikes with weights. I modified some of the exercises because I didn’t want to overdo it. In the end, I really did like the change and my accidental circuit spin class.

With Allan out of town again this morning, I elected to take today as a rest day to catch up on some work.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and I have nothing planned. No dinner reservations made. No brunch. Of course, all I really want is happy, healthy (mentally and physically) children and a pedicure and a bottle of Prosecco. Is that too much to ask?

I did make some MNO plans, though because I really do need an escape a break. If you feel the same way and you live local, I would love for you to join me at the AMC Westshore 14 at 8pm to see Moms’ Night Out the movie.

Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

Next week will be spring break in our neck of the woods and I cannot wait! I am looking forward to unplugging from the blog and enjoying the outdoors with my kids for a whole week.  Out of curiosity, I asked my kids what activities they wanted to do over our spring break staycation and they came up with a really great list.

But mom picked first! Spring break will kick off with a beach trip because I have been craving to feel white sugar sand between my toes and the warm springtime sun on my face. I also have been craving Frenchy’s Grouper Rueben sandwich.

 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

On Sunday, I have the Sarasota Half Marathon but that afternoon my kids and I will board Thomas the Tank Engine for A Day Out With Thomas: Thrill of the Ride Tour.  For the first time ever, Thomas will talk to all the passengers which will cause my little train-lover blow a gasket!

At some point on Sunday, the kids will set their leprechaun traps once again in the hopes of catching that tricky little leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day. If we catch a pot of gold, we’ll jet set around the world for spring break. If not, we’ll settle for a day at Busch Gardens.

 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

Because it’s been forever since my family has gone canoeing, we’ve planned a canoe trip down the Peace River to search for sharks teeth with our friends. I don’t think Little Lion Man has ever sat it a canoe! At least I don’t have any photos proving otherwise.

img 2335 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

My little vegetarian has requested a day to go strawberry picking and since Absolutely Mindy declared Wednesday as “Middle Child Awareness Day”, we’ll set aside Wednesday to be our day for that berry special event.  On the way, we’ll swing by Parkesdale Farm Market to fuel up with some of the best strawberry milkshakes and strawberry shortcakes.

 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

While on that side of I-4, we’ll visit with T-Rex and his friends at Dinosaur World. Little Lion Man has been begging to visit dinosaurs ever since he met a few up close and personal at Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo.

IMAG4484 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

Another day, we’ll bounce around the idea to either jump at Airheads or find time to visit a spray ground. We’ll also try to block out some time to see The Lego Movie too.

Then make a splash at SeaWorld its 50th Celebration. SeaWorld has received a lot of negative press related to the film Blackfish, but even if SeaWorld removed its star attraction, we would still visit the park. I love SeaWorld’s message of conversation, animal rescue and rehabilitation. Plus, the roller coasters are pretty darn cool.

 Our Spring Break 2014 Staycation To Do List

We’ll wrap up the week with a glowing finish when my girls and I run the Electrodash 5K on Friday, March 21. They are so excited about experiencing a running dance party! (I’m giving away two Electrodash 5K entries. Don’t miss out if you want to join us!)

Then we’ll sleep in Saturday morning and rest the remainder of the weekend to recover from such a fun-filled, action-packed adventurous spring break staycation.

Pinterest Inspired Valentine’s Day Cards

I *heart* Pinterest.

Who doesn’t? Am I right?

I’ve been pinning all sorts of Valentine’s Day ideas since I first joined Pinterest. You may remember the Valentine’s Day cards my kids and I made a couple of years ago.

I pin fun holiday ideas all year round.  You do too, don’t you?  Pinterest puts new meaning to “Christmas is July”.

I had my eye on this crafty car Valentine for my little guy for a while.  I knew it was the perfect Valentine for my little car enthusiast’s preschool classmates.  To recreate it, I purchased a pack of cars and 40 count small heart treat bags at our local dollar store.  I designed the card on PicMonkey and assembled it to look like this.  The text reads, “Valentine, You make my heart race.”

IMAG4299 Pinterest Inspired Valentines Day Cards

When I showed Emmalynn the assortment of Pinterest-inspired Valentine’s Day cards, she loved the s’mores craft.

IMAG4322 Pinterest Inspired Valentines Day Cards

To recreate this Valentine, I used the same loot bags as above and purchased s’mores making items at our local supermarket.  With very thoroughly washed hands, Emmalynn assembled little s’mores kits for her classmates which included two graham cracker squares, individual Fun Size Hershey’s and pink one large marshmallow.  Again, I designed the card on PicMonkey and affixed it to the little bag with Scotch tape. The text reads, “Valentine, I need s’more friends like you.”

IMAG4321 Pinterest Inspired Valentines Day Cards

Since Allana is my moustache lover, she loved the “I moustache you a question” Valentine’s Day Card for her middle school friends.  We used her Christmas portrait, added some text and a moustache on PicMoney, because she felt it was necessary to add a handlebar moustache to her own face.  Then, we uploaded the cards to Wal-Mart’s photo center to print them.

AllanaValetine2014 Pinterest Inspired Valentines Day Cards

We found some fun fuzzy facial hair at the dollar store which Allana affixed over the word mustache.  She like the idea of hiding the word “moustache” under the actual moustache.

IMAG4320 Pinterest Inspired Valentines Day Cards

I love PicMonkey for creating fun things like this as well as fun graphics for blogging and photo editing too.  Right now, PicMonkey is offering my friends (We’re friends, right?) one day of free PicMonkey Royale (their cool upgrade option).  So give PicMonkey a go!

PicMonkey is normally free, but with my special link, you can play like a Royale and test out all the cool fonts, designs and photo editing options that aren’t normally free.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Run DMT!

The Coolest Halloween Ever

At the ripe old age of three, Little Lion Man finally understands the concept of trick-or-treating.  Knock on door and in a very cute way say, “Trick-or-treat!”  It also helps to look absolutely adorable in an airplane costume.  You get extra candy for being ridiculously cute.

 The Coolest Halloween Ever

Yes, Little Lion Man worked the Halloween system.  He’s a very manipulative wise three year old.  Now if only we can have him to pose for photos or to stop saying “CHEESE” with a grimacing smile.

 The Coolest Halloween Ever

This year, Halloween had an added bonus at preschool.  Liam strolled through the halls with his preschool and high school teacher friends to trick-or-treat.  They visited classrooms where other high school students teachers offered candy to all the tiny trick-or-treaters.

After preschool, we visited his sister’s school for the annual character costume parade.  There we found our own purple My Little Pony Emmalynn galloping by as Twlight Sparkle.  Middle school students don’t participate in the character parade which made a little sad to think our little preteen big sister, Allana, missed out on the fun.

Later that night, we hit the streets for the real trick-or-treating.  Emmalynn tossed the wig and Allana decided to use a pillowcase for her loot bag, because “that’s what all the teenagers use.”  Yes, she’s all grown up.  She’s too old for character parades and too old for plastic pumpkins.

While out walking through our neighborhood, our TARDIS found her Doctor.  “You’re the 10thDoctor!”  We all shouted at the poor unsuspecting teen as he strolled past us although he was thrilled that we recognized his costume. (Notice his pillowcase.)

 The Coolest Halloween Ever

“You’re the TARDIS!  So cool!”  Allana said finding Doctor Who while trick-or-treating was “the coolest pre-birthday present ever”.  I’m glad I could deliver that.

After our brief encounter with The Doctor, it was time for us to head home and inspect our precious.  Of course, my kids scored soda and mountains of candy trick-or-treating.
