Sunday Dinner (vegetarian Italian style)

My father is adopted, so I've always claimed I could be any nationality or ethnicity or culture I wanted (since I don't really know what I am) and my favorite was always Italian. I wanted to grow up in New York and be Italian and have an accent and a permanent tan and amazingly dark brown hair and all the cliches you can think of when you think about Italians. I wanted that huge, loud family (which I have, but they all have southern accents) gathered around the dinner table on Sunday's eating plates full of pasta and cannolis and looking like the Godfather movies. :)

So Sunday dinner's at my house almost always consist of pasta in some way. Tonight's was no exception except for the fact that I took a little help from Trader Giotti's and got two different frozen pasta dishes, mixed them together and served it alongside vegetarian nuggets. My girls were happy and Jason even ate it without complaining. Point 1 for mom!

Tummy's are full. Linsey and Regan have had baths. Jason is at his meeting. I'm working on the Sunday Segment.

But friend Elisabeth asked me to write up a list of great songs to run to.
So - Elisabeth this list is for you...

1. Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow
2. Black Eyed Peas - I Got  A Feeling
3. The Killers - Mr Brightside
4. Eminem - Lose Yourself
5. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
6. Michael Jackson - Beat It
7. Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal
8. Buckcherry - Crazy Bitch
9. Green Day - American Idiot Album
10. Pink - You and Your Hand
11. Pink - Rockstar
12. Britney Spears - Womanizer
13. Gwen Stefani - Holla Back Girl
14. Outkast - Hey Ya
15. Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun

I could go on and on, but this is a good list to get started with. Good luck with the running. I'll be thinking about you in Cali while I'm running here in the fridged cold winter months of Missouri. :)

Awesome! Thanks, Maria. I've been searching for new songs to add to my playlist which currently consists mainly of Radiohead and Arcade Fire songs.

Reading your blog has helped keep me motivated so you better keep it up!

Thanks again!

Elisabeth: I'll keep it up alright. This is my ticket to working from home and (in the words of linsey) Being famous like Carrie Bradshaw! LOL! I can't believe that my 8 year old knows who she is. That's actually quite disturbing on so many levels. :)
In honor of you I have decided to do a Friday night Fight Song Post and list my Top 10 Running Songs of the Week!

YAY! I love that idea! I actually just started running to a podcast called, "Running Mate". I run to the 5K 101 interval training program and while I'm not a huge fan of the music, I really appreciate the guy saying, "Alright you've got 1 more minute" and I'm able to keep a nice pace to the "thumb bump bump" of the DJ music.

I can definitely use some new music to listen to while I ride my bike! I've been stuck on Radiohead album "In Rainbows" and Arcade Fire's "Neon Bible" for a really long time.
