Stuffed Peppers and a Cold One

by Nicci on 12/08/2009

Dinner: Spicy, Cheesy Stuffed Pepper w/Rice.

Sometimes, we all deserve a half-cheat meal…meaning the slice of pizza hiding in the back :)

(One cup of cooked rice, leftover homemade queso, onion and bell pepper.  Cook the rice then toss with spinach, onions and leftover queso, at 375 for 20 minutes. )

Too complete this half-cheat meal,  I happily drank a beer.  I’m a victim to the best Texas dark beer.

This summer I’d like to visit the brewery and sample every flavor they brew. My favorite thing about Shiner, is it’s dark and nobody likes it but me…among friends.

I’d have to say these last two weeks have been crazy.  I’ve been having car problems and now my cellular phone is acting up.  Everything around me seems to be breaking and everything costs money to repair. Boo!!

On that note: Santa needs to bring me a new phone….plus that Garmin Forerunner305. I feel lost with a half-@** working cell…my lifeline to society!  I need that forerunner for this Half training too, let’s not even talk about that craziness. There are so many training programs I’ve looked at and  my brain hurts. I’ve decided to stick with short runs during the week 3x and attempt long runs on weekends; cross-training every other day.

Anyone know of a ”Couch to Half” Program out there?  kidding :)

Work is just as crazy too, with projects due and needy people all around. I wouldn’t mind helping someone with things, but when they call in ”sick” all the time, it gets old. Uhmmmm….

Lunch: Turkey Flat Out Wrap with light mayo and broccoli n cheese!

Breakfast: No Go,  I left my instant oatmeal and banana on the counter; running late for work.

PS. Here’s a pic of the wedding cake,  Diana requested!  Stop by her blog too, one of my Texas girls representing the Central part of our great State.

”Let Them Eat Cake”


Sadly, I didn’t think twice about cake, because I planned to run Sunday.  I did hear it was as good as it looked.

The Biggest Loser Finale is on tonight, 90210, then Bad Girls Club…Woohoo

Have a great night,


Do you give yourself a cheat meal/day and what’s the best thing you indulge in… food wise?

**A girl has to indulge once in awhile!**

I’ve been thinking cheesy today, and now I see that stuffed pepper. Ooo-la-la!

Your stuffed peppers looked SO GOOD! MMMM and I must say… I LOVE beer!
Thanks, by the way, for the half training schedule you sent me! I FINALLY got around to looking at it and it looks pretty good!
Good luck w/ the phone and Garmin! =)

boo i hate when all of a sudden all of your must-haves just stop working! those stuffed peppers look amazing! i don’t typically have a cheat day/meal because i’ll indulge a little bit everday so that i dont go overboard. hope you have a wonderful day!

Tracey @ TropicalHappiness December 10, 2009 at 10:28 am

I am asking for a Garmin too!!! When is your half? I actually saw a REALLY reasonable 12 week half training program online, with the basis of being able to run about 3 miles 3-4x per week. Let me know if you want me to send it your way.

Nicci December 10, 2009 at 12:58 pm

My Half is in March!

I LOVE STUFFED PEPPERS!!! I thought about them the other day and really want to make them, the problem is my hubby & little one don’t like them as they have cheese and they don’t like cheese (can you beleive that). However, I think I will make them this weekend for lunches next week. =)

Hey lady! I will be in Dallas for 10 days :) Next Saturday (19th?) through Sunday the 27th.

Email me if the meet-up is happening. I’d love to try to come!

Your cheat meals are better than mine, girl! Mine would be that slice of pizza x 4 – eek!!! That cake is awesome!! I STILL have stuffed peppers on my recipe to-do list!

Kat December 9, 2009 at 5:00 pm

I love to see another girl who’s not afraid of REAL beer. I’m not always a dark beer fan, but I don’t waste my time with “water” either ;)

wedding cake=heaven. I need to really watch myself. :( I’ve been indulging on a daily basis. :( Good luck with your training.

Stephanie December 9, 2009 at 12:37 pm

That stuffed pepper looks divine! I just drooled reading this post ;)

Lee December 9, 2009 at 10:58 am

Have you looked at Hal Higdon’s Novice Half marathon training plan? I definitely recommend it.

Missy Maintains December 9, 2009 at 10:41 am

I don’t give myself a cheat day because I like little treats every day. A cheat day would probably lead to a binge! I eat some dark chocolate every day.

Mari December 9, 2009 at 10:12 am

Bad Girls Club is sooooo good! lol Did you watch Jersey Shore too? Trainwreck lol

Morgan December 9, 2009 at 8:55 am

Your plan for the Half is actually a good one for putting it together yourself. I have my old Half training plan still if you’d like me to send it to you. My triathlete friend put it together for me and made sure to include cross training. Just shoot me an email girl! :)

Morgan December 9, 2009 at 7:05 am

I’m all for indulging. Lately, I’ve developed more of a salty tooth, so french fries always feel like an indulgence, though I do bake them at home. Also, chips and salsa are dangerous around me, I will ALWAYS indulge in them. it gets ugly.

Melinda December 9, 2009 at 5:51 am

The pepper looks so pretty! I almost always have a small piece of chocolate each day. SOme days I don’t, but even if it is just a few hershey’s kisses, then I content.

I treated myself to a fry up breakfast yesterday, as I’m on holiday I thought why not?

Lo December 8, 2009 at 9:49 pm

p.s. i also ate pizza tonight. and a twix bar. cheating is fun ;)


Nicci December 8, 2009 at 9:25 pm

OOOh, good idea Suzanne. I may have to invest in that. See I have a ipod touch, wonder if that app can be on there. must check out.

Jolene ( December 8, 2009 at 9:07 pm

I love indulging in pasta!!

That stuffed pepper looks fan-freakin-tastic. WOW!

Suzanne December 8, 2009 at 8:53 pm

Get an iphone and just use mapmyrun app. 2 birds. one stone.

Rose December 8, 2009 at 8:42 pm

Every time I see a pepper like this, it makes me wish I liked them!

Nicci December 8, 2009 at 10:29 pm

Rose- I used to hate peppers, now I can’t get enough of them. Especially a stuffed pepper like this one.

'Drea December 8, 2009 at 8:21 pm

If it makes you feel any better, I don’t have a cell phone. I refuse to get one but it’s starting to get interesting with the demise of pay phones.

I have unintentional cheat meals when I get invited out to eat. The last one I had was a ceasar chicken wrap at Crazy Bowls. My heart dropped when I found out that the CCW has 45 fat grams. No wonder it’s so tasty.
