Mexican Casserole Night

This Garmin Forerunner is incredible!! One of the main pros for me on the treadmill over running outside is that I can keep track of my pace, but this Garmin does that for me outside. It definitely made me work a bit harder and it was easy to keep track of how far I went and how fast I was going. I got mine on Amazon.com and it was supposed to be 299.99 but I got it for about half that! It’s also great because you plug it into the computer and it keeps track of your workout history for you. Love it!

Today’s run:

Distance: 5.00 miles

Total Time: 47:26.58

Average Pace: 9:28

Calories Burned: 586

After the run, I rehydrated with this:

I had never tried this flavor before and I liked it. I think I prefer plain or pineapple but this one was good too.

I had been dreaming up a Mexican Casserole all day, and here’s what I came up with.

I used (for 4 servings)

  • 1.5 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn
  • handful of cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flower

I mixed all that together and put it into an 8″ pie pan:

In a heated 375 degree oven, I cooked it for 35 minutes, pulled it out and topped it with 1/2 cup RF Mozzerella Cheese:

Then I turned the oven up to 425 and threw it back in for 15 minutes till the cheese was melty and getting brown.

For toppings, I used pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro leaves.

I also made a salad with mixed organic greens, cucumbers, radishes, and some of the pico de gallo.

Yum! It was really tasty and exactly what I was craving. I love making casseroles but I rarely take the time to make them. I’m so glad I did today because this was ooey gooey and delicious and now I have it for lunch tomorrow too!

I’m off to watch some TV and relax. Have a good night!!

    Running with the garmin must have been so fun! I use my iphone to track distance and a polar to track my heart rate… nowhere near as fun as a garmin!

    That casserole looks so yummy. I was thinking of making something with rice and beans tonight but was too lazy so I’ll have to add this to the list!
