Failed Empanadas (sp?)

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 10:03 am

Yesterday, my mom put me in charge of dinner, so i decided to make something exotic and complicated: empenadas.  Well, okay, they aren’t that complicated, but it was certainly something new.  The first batter came out too running since i accidentally added too much water and I had accidentally stuffed the second batter too much with the filling so there were random pieces of broccoli and mushrooms sticking out once the little things managed to bake.  Regardless, i need practice making savory items.

I have cross country conditioning today, and i really hope that it’s not a difficult run like yesterday’s.  My shins have been feeling better, though, i’m still worried about having to take a week off.  After all, i really want to get 300 miles in this summer.

Oh well, the season’s more important than summer training anyway.

Question for you all:

Do you/did you play a sport in high school/college??

I certainly never thought i would considering i have no hand-eye coordination, but running turned out to be something really positive in my life because of great teammates and encouragement from my family members.


  1. Hey chica! You better get on it with those empanadas 😛 They’re delicious! Glad your shins are getting better, but don’t forget to ice. I swam from the 3 grade through my sophmore year of high school. I had to quit when my parents said my swimming, having a job and school was too much. I’m certainly not one for hand eye coordination or team sports though. That’s why I run and swim 🙂

    • Hehe, i’ve had friends who’ve swum and they taught me a few different strokes and such, but I’ve never had the courage to swim competitively cause i’m pretty slow lol.
