Trish and Pete's 5k Morning Adventure!

It felt like a scene out of Cinderella. Birds chirping, bunnies frollicking! Everything and everyone calm and happy and content. When its 6 am, all is right in the world. Pete and I got a good 5k run/walk in this morning. Its such a great start to the day, really puts you in the right frame of mind for a day of happiness and success! (It's paying off, I think I have another deal!)

I do think the events of last night played in to this morning's great run. Pete and I had some quality time, went to bed early, and woke up refreshed!

I took the camera with me on the run last night, and got some interesting shots.

MMMMM. Grass! Seriously Pete, at least put some dressing on your salad!

After the workout last night, it was time to cook! I think this is one of the best meals I've made in a long time, fairly healthy as well. (Just ignore the butter!)

Shrimp, Broccoli, and Sun-dried Tomatoes Scampi with Angel Hair

1/2 pound large shrimp - peeled and deveined
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 (6 ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package angel hair pasta

1.Put the heat on under the pasta pot full of water.

2.In a large saute pan heat the oil from the drained sun-dried tomatoes. Add butter. When butter is melted saute the garlic about 1 minute, add the sun-dried tomatoes, heat for about 1 minute. Add shelled and deveined shrimp. Cook until shrimp are done, about 5-8 minutes.

When pasta water comes to a boil, toss in the broccoli florets. Cook about 2-3 minutes.


Then add angel hair. Cook according to package instructions. Drain and turn into large past bowl.

MMMM. Its looking and smelling sooooo good!

4.Spoon shrimp mixture over pasta and serve


Pour a glass of red wine, relax and enjoy!

Oh, and then take the dog out again - cuz he never gets enough!
