Corn Muffins!

Hello World! I hate letting so much time pass since my last post. Training has been less than spectacular. I'm blaming our lack of a summer. Tomorrow morning at 4-something in the morning, is the official start of summer. The Oregon weather gods feel differently. DB and I went swimming in Hagg Lake the other day to get a feel for the water for the upcoming tri, and for me to not have another freak-out episode in the water. The swim went well. We just stuck by the shore and The Beagle even tried to swim out towards us. I wish I had a picture of him. He hates the water but I think he thought we were in trouble out in the water and tried to "save us". Below I have posted 3 simple recipes for some "staples" in my workweek diet.

Oh and in honor of Father's Day, I rammed my step-dad's pickup into a poll. The side of the pickup now has a giant dent. errrrrrr..... I blame genetics.
