If loving dirty water dogs is wrong, then I don’t ever want to be right

Today was a rest day.B For the first time in weeks, I actually got my long run out of the way on Saturday and was able to relax on Sunday.B My only workout for today besides chewing was this:

Let’s just say that at the moment me and TurboTax are not on speaking terms but both my parent’s and my taxes are complete and two months before the deadline! B I’m probably the only tax CPA in the world that doesn’t extend her taxes.

With no long run hanging in the back of my head,B I had time to make pancakes this morning!

They might not be golden perfect (I might have gotten distracted by watching vampire diaries and forgot to flip them over until a I heard a slight sizzle) but they tasted great.B The cat agreed:

Tony and I did a great job in almost consuming all 8 servings.B If you don’t pour half a pound of maple syrup (real stuff, none of that fake Aunt Jamima shizzle), they’re almost healthy.B Only 158 cals per cake!B They’re fluffy and super easy to make. If you like your pancakes on the sweeter side, I suggest adding vanilla extract to the batter.B I do that sometimes, but this morning I just wanted to bask in maple syrup.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Sunday is also our food restock day with a stop at Costco.B Where the second highlight of my day came:

This is where the title of my post is from.B I may have had a mild mustard accident but the tiny onion machine that costco has can’t be beat.B I begged Tony to split one because Sundays are my weird craving days.B I promise my dinner was much tamer and more balanced.

Tomorrow I’m hoping for a 15 mile tempo run, we’ll see how that goes.B Knee was feeling a bit stiff so I iced and just took some advil.
