Fifteen Minute Stir-Fry + Her Next Marathon

Our free lunches at work have moved to Thursday’s, I present to you the smorgasbord!

I also had a little something new that my co-worker brought in to work from TJ’s!

food 070

Has anyone else tried these? They are not dried more like dehydrated, they are super yummy and would be a perfect wrap for something!

When I got home I was welcomed with a lovely surprise from
POM Wonderful!

food 073

They sent me four of their POM Tea’s, I couldn't wait to give them all a try. I love the original POM juices so I am sure I will love these too

I was inspired by Heathers dinner post tonight, and decided to make something similar. I wanted something quick and easy! I set my timer…

The ingredients:

This bag of brown rice was a spontaneous by at the market this week.

food 077

This eggplant is from our Garden. 

food 078

Leftover veggies: bell pepper, zucchini, and squash. 

food 079

I sipped on some of the POM Tea while I cooked, not bad just a light flavored tea. I kind of wish it was a little sweeter, but overall it was refreshing.

food 081

I gave all the ingredients a rough chop!

Then threw them in my WOK with a little EVOO and Light Soy Sauce

food 084

This dish turned out beautifully, I love colorful food! The only that was missing peanuts I was missing the crunch, next time for sure.

This whole meal took less then 20 minutes take that RACHEL RAY! (I really love Rachel)

Tonight I wanted to tell you all about the next marathon I am planning on running. I have been debating between three:

>Las Vegas Rock and Roll

>California International in Sacramento

>Santa Barbara International.

They are all three on December 6th and ALL would be a lot of fun. I wanted to do Las Vegas with Amanda, but I am not too interested in running in the desert. I also think that CIM would be great as well, but I would have to fly and I would like something a little closer.

So it comes down to Santa Barbara, which is one of the most beautiful city’s in CA in my opinion. Only a couple hours from home, but far enough to make it a trip!!

I am so glad that I have my coaching job now to pay for my running addiction:) So anyone else doing Santa Barbara? Want to join me?

Off to Thursday Night Group, have a blessed evening!

Great choice, I'm sure! I'm already going to be doing the full in Vegas, so I'll review it! =P

Hey Bobbi!
I'm doing the Las Vegas RNR, it'll be my first marathon! You should totally run that one and we could do a blogger meet n greet. I live in WA, but my cousin lives in LV, so I'm going to travel down there to run it with him, or he's going to run it with me...either way.

Cate said...

Even though you're not doing it this year, you should definitely do CIM sometime... I ran it last year and PRd by 27 minutes! (only 6 minutes away from a BQ)
I am dying to do Las Vegas RNR sometime in the future!

I have a pack of those nanners and I can't wait to try them.

Your stir fry looks speedy and delicious. I love making stir fries for this exact reason.

Good luck on your next marathon. Thats awesome girl!

That POM tea looks amazing! Iced tea is my fave and the flavor of POM probably adds a nice zing.
Thanks for letting us know about this product! Hope I can find it in Illinois.

Awww, I got all excited when I saw CIM is on the list because I am running that one! Oh well, I totally understand the reasons behind SB, I only have a 2 hour drive to do CIM, too.
Mmmm, that POM tea looks great - I can't wait to look for it! Happy Friday! :)

The lychee flavored tea is my fave Bobbi! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Dinner looks great! I never seen that rice before. I have seen the steam veggies but not the rice. I will have to be on the lookout for that!

I've never had those bananas, but they look sooooo good.

I would have no interest in running in the desert either. :D
