Pumpkin muffins & pea pesto pasta

Since I've been nannying at the new place, I've been looking for recipes and buying the food needed for each recipe at the beginning of the week. This is something I've been trying to do for awhile anyway, but this has really MADE me do it. Last night I made Lemony Pesto Pasta with Edamame, except I used peas  instead of edamame because Waseca HyVee didn't have any:) And I used whole wheat spaghetti and left out the almonds because I was lazy and didn't feel like preparing them... 2011_5_2-springpasta04.jpg  It. Was. So. Good.

I ate thirds. It was also minimal work & easy ingredients. Going in the recipe box:)
Today I'm making pumpkin oatmeal muffins with raisins.  
 I really can't wait for fall. ahhh......
Running is going well. i still can't bring myself to run in the morning. I really like running at night, and no matter how tired I am, I am usually not too tired for a run. I guess I shouldn't fight it, but it seems like common sense to run in the mornings! My husband says he would like me to do that too, but that means him & I getting up at 5, because my 10 month old can sense when I leave her 10-foot radius. I swear.  So we'll see. I'd love to sometime be able to get up early, run, shower, and still get the ladies ready for the day to leave by 6:45. But this week is not that week. I don't know how people do it.

Boy, do I love pesto! What a tasty looking recipe. :)

Mornings are really nice for running- cool air, etc..but I get your situation with the 10 month old with radar. I need sleep, so sometimes I toggle between sleeping in and running late or getting up early. A treadmill makes it easier too..but I prefer that as my last resort. It does free up the evenings though.
