The wedding is a week from today. We leave Thursday for the park (Devil's Den) and will return the following Wednesday. Most everything is finished and we are just carrying on with our lives. Our lives are a little different these days now that I have started running. A typical Saturday used to involve a park or the library. Now it looks like this:
|We are Color Runners.|
Saturday the girls and I completed the Lawrence Color Run, the Happiest 5k on the planet. It really is. I brought the jogger and plenty of blankets for the girls to hide under but they had other ideas. Mo ran most of the second half and Audrey kept asking for more color. It helped that several of their own age friends attended and one ran the entire run.

When planning for a run of any kind, whether timed or just for fun, like the Color Run, it is best to fuel up. Complex carbs are fabulous and we recommend Sweet Potato Pancakes. They are easy to make and fun to eat. I wish we had made two batches because the girls and daddy ate most of this batch.
Sweet Potato Pancakes
- 2 cups shredded sweet potato
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 tbsp flour
- 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- oil for the pan
Squeeze potatoes after you shred them to remove the extra water. Add to a medium bowl with the three eggs, beaten. Stir in flour and salt. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and add 1/4 inch of oil (we used vegetable but Canola would work great as well). Place rounded tablespoon of batter in the skillet and flatten. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side or until crispy. Place on a towel-lined plate to drain while you cook the rest of the batter. Serve with applesauce and sour cream.

The #SundaySupper Team decided to embrace Color as well and put together a menu of All Things Orange. Go check out them out!
