I did ok today, no tears until the drive home. I am ok now..just keeping busy. Thanks again for all the wonderful words of encouragement, I can not tell you enough how grateful I am for all the support and love.
Today I got home, and immediately tackled the BSI recipe I have been working on. I absolutely adore sweet potatoes. Thanks Melissa for choosing them as the star of the show!
There are so many things I already love to make with sweet potatoes, but I chose to try something different, itâ€™s more fun to play in the kitchen! So I played with Rachel Rayâ€™s Pumpkin Potato Pie recipe.
MY Healthier VERSION
Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pie
1 sweet potato peeled, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
One 9-inch frozen pie crust shell, thawed
1 tablespoon butter
One 8-ounce package sliced mushrooms
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
One organic 15-ounce can pure pumpkin puree3 large egg whites beaten
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat the oven to 425Â°. Place the sweet potato in a large saucepan with enough salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain, then transfer to a bowl. Reserve the saucepan.
2. Using a fork, prick the bottom of the piecrust. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
3. In the saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and scallions and cook until softened, about 7 minutes. Stir into the sweet potato, along with the pumpkin puree, eggs and yogurt cream; season with salt and pepper. Spoon into the piecrust, sprinkle with the nuts and bake until set, about 20 minutes.
mmmmmâ€¦.enough said. I paired it tonight with some Whole Foods Stuffing, and I am stuffed, I ate too muchâ€¦lolâ€¦
I am so thrilled that there are so many of you joining the challenge! Itâ€™s so exciting to know that there are others who love to run, and get pumped from the competition. I wanted to just give a quick recap of the rules and such in case you missed the first post.
So hereâ€™s the deal, start tracking your miles from November 8th until the weekend after Thanksgiving. I decided to extend it to Sunday the 30th because I know a lot of you will need that push to run after all that TURKEY, or yams if your anything like me. On Sunday the 30th email me your total mileage; at marie dot bobbi at gmail dot com. If you have PILED on the most MILES I will crown you winner, and send you a very special homemade package of all my favorite running goodies (wish I could send you a Garmin but I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s going to happen this year:). I know this is based on honesty, so scouts honor!

I loved this comment from Lacy today, â€œI was totally inspired this morning by the Pile on the Miles challenge. I went a little further than I usually go and kept thinking “Pile on the Miles” to myself to keep on truckin. new mantra! hahaha. it really worked…â€ What an inspiration for me to run hard tomorrow morning, thanks Lacy!
Well I need to clean up the mess in the kitchen, and catch up on my blog reading. Have a great night everyone!
