I had house guests last night that participated in the Peachtree Road Race
this morning.  I made a Carb-Loading dinner for them last night - whole
wheat spaghetti and spinach brown rice spaghetti for me - I have found that
the Tinkyáda Pasta Joy brand of brown rice pastas are very good - gluten
free, good consistency, good texture, not mushy - a VERY good wheat pasta
substitute.  I made a vegetable ragout, a meat marinara with ground buffalo,
a patty pan squash tart (very pretty!), and garlic bread.  They got up at
5:30 this morning, walked the 10K plus - they figure about 10 miles in all,
and just got home a little while ago.  They were craving protein, so I made
a big omelet for everyone along with mango nectar and fizzy water cocktails
and now they are all napping hard!

Tonight will be foods on the grill (steaks and some chicken spinach sausages
I found), baked beans, watermelon, etc.  Fireworks at the Tobesofkee Sandy
Beach site (which is where Fool's War is held) so that will be fun for me :)

Hope everyone enjoys their day!
