I noted in my blog yesterday that Diana of Diana Tries A Tri fame made me laugh so hard that I was dedicating the next Athlete's Plate to her and making it all vegetarian.  So after making that announcement I have come up with one dish.....Peanut Butter and Jelly.  But as Kovas pointed out to me we need an alternative to Peanut Butter and he recommended Sunflower Seed Butter and so there is my one dish so far, but I will create a perfectly vegetarian menu for the day.  I do have a week to do this you know.  Anyway, I want to challenge you to send me an idea and I will create a menu based on that.  It can be an ingredient, a theme, anything you want.  I love a good challenge.  I will run the menu by you once completed and then shout out your blog during the announcement of the menu for that day.  Great way for us all to share our ideas on food and pass the word so we all begin to eat healthier.
CSN Stores was gracious enough to allow me to give away a $45 gift certificate.  If you are interested in putting your hat in the ring (OK, entries into random number generator) then go to the announcement from yesterday here.  Good luck.
On Day 4 of 30 of giving thanks for the people, places and things in my life (please notice the order in which they are is important to me to live my life this way....people, places and things) I am thankful for the early morning training sessions in which I am able to be home to see my wife and step-son off.  This morning was a perfect example as Grandma picks up Chico on Thursdays and I had a short :30 run that I did with the Castle Hill Running Club.  I was home by 5:45am and Chico gets picked up around 6:30 so we had some time together.  On his way out the door Karen picks up Chico and they look in the mirror, hug each other tightly say....BYE-BYE then smile and laugh.  Great moment and so simple.  I then walk Karen to the car because according to her I did that when we were dating and she wants to keep it alive.  I like that.  Let's stay married as if we were still dating and trying to impress each other.  Let's not stop dating.

About the Author:

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
