WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
I would like to send a big Shout Out to my cousin Faye for her 50th birthday. Faye had a wonderful dinner at the Classic on Noble to celebrate this blessed occasion. She flew in from Florida just to share this special occasion with her family and friends.
Faye looked stunning in her sparkling silver gown. She was definitely the center of attention. She really is 50 and fabulous :)

So, I decided to challenge myself to run six miles. My friend Tam and I met up and ran first thing in the morning. This is the first time since I broke my foot back in February that I have attempted to run six miles. Also, we ran the same course at Golden Springs where I broke my foot, so, it brought back bad memories.
Anyway, the run was great and I felt great running it. The weather was great and the sun wasn't beaming down on me. For some reason, I like doing courses and trails better than tracks when I am running long distances.
Brussel sprouts and bacon is a match that I have grown to love. My friend Dixie turned me on to it. Of course, I had to add my own special twist!
A container of brussel sprouts
1-2 large sweet onions
1 package of sweet peppers
1 package of pre-cooked bacon (6-8 slices)
1/2 cup of olive oil
Tony's Creole seasoning salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the brussel sprouts and sweet peppers in halves. Cut the onions into large chunks. Slice the bacon into 1 inch pieces. In a large bowl, toss all of the brussel sprouts, peppers, onions, and bacon in the olive oil. Season with the Tony's Creole seasoning (or any seasoning of your choice).
Spread the mixture onto a baking pan (or cookie sheet) and bake for 30-40 minutes.
I would like to give a big shout out to all of the WJR Club members and friends who showed up and completed the first unofficial 13 mile club walk at Ladiga Trail today.
My feet are still feeling this walk. I am glad I was able to complete it!
