Egg Cupcakes

A friend of mine brought me in one of these interesting snacks. At first I thought “egg cupcake, what in the heck is a egg cupcake?” As I ate one I thought what a yummy quick on the go meal. Great protein packed, quick and easy recipe.
Heres what you’ll need:
– 12 eggs
– a muffin tin
– 12 cupcake liners
– 1 or 2 Fresh jalapenos (depending on how spicy you want it)
– 1 lb of lean ground turkey
– seasonings of your choice
– 1 minced garlic clove
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet put minced garlic and ground turkey in pan cook until brown. While the ground turkey is browning, place cupcake liners in the muffin tin, spray cooking spray in each liner. Crack open 1 egg and place in each liner (they will turn out like a hard boiled egg in the cupcake liner). Dice up jalapenos. I took seeds out but your choice to use in this recipe. By now the ground turkey should be fully cooked. I used a tablespoon and scooped out and placed on top of the uncooked egg in each cupcake liner, then take the chopped jalapenos and place on top of ground turkey. Place in the oven for at least 20-25 minutes. Once done let cool and then place in fridge.
This was my first time making them so they still needed a few tweeks for the next time. But you can play around with what you want to add and mess around with it. I think this is a great recipe for those who can’t stop make breakfast in the morning or want a quick mid morning/afternoon snack. I’d love to see your comments as to what you used and did with this recipe or have made something very similar.

What do you run for?

I get asked this question a lot? Why do I run? I was even asked this question as to why did I bother running a marathon.  The heated debate angers me.
I run for lots of things.  One, my health. I have lots of health issues in my family.  Two, my sanity. Ever heard that expression “running is cheaper than therapy” but sometimes I wonder after race fees, running gadgets.  Is it really cheaper? My mind needs the de-stress from the day. Sometimes the only way for me to unwind is to go for a run. My third and last reason is a role model to my 7 year old daughter. She honestly hates running but she loves watching me run and being there at races to watch me cross the finish line. I hope that as she grows up she will see running is great and wonderful experience.
So I leave the open debate.  What do you run for?
