Shart Brownies

Jason over at Life of an Aspiring Triathlete really does it up right. Not only is he training for his first 70.3 (half ironman) in April 2011, but he is a crafty and unique cook. He has started a segment on his blog called “The Athletes Plate” where he creates a menu to fit a particular blogger’s qualities and characteristics. All recipes are healthy and pretty easy to make. shartbrownies

Guess who is highlighted today? Yours truly. Go take a look at recipes for such things as Shart Brownies (I don’t think that’s corn in there) and Oatmeal with brown SUgAR. The Tootin’ Torta Rustica looks pretty tasty too. Yes, Jason could have gone with Kovas’ suggestion of broth with Baby Ruth’s floating around in it, but he took the high road.

Leave me a comment here and just maybe I will nominate you to be featured on the next Athlete’s Plate!

In celebrity news, I got an email from Dean K. today.  I had told him he was on our Christmas card. His response?

Not worthy? Give me a break. Okay, maybe if you could run 400 miles at one time rather than just 350 you would be worthy. Or, if you could run from here to Greece on water, well, then you might be worthy.

Then he gave me a P.O. box cause he for sure knows I would stalk his house. I might even stalk the P.O. box just for the hell of it.

Going to hang out with “the clan,”

  1. Totally jealous of your email from Dean and your listing on Jason's "The Athlete's Plate". Plus, I'm totally digging the photo of the black bathing suit with the white panties, goggles and swim cap.

    Run on.

  4. If you watch the post office box, you can always follow him home...

    I love the new profile picture!

  5. I can't believe you can casually say "I got an email from Dean K. today." I am SO jealous :-)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm right there with all the other jealous people! And stalking a PO Box doesn't really count as stalk, you just happened to need to mail some last minute Christmas cards, right?!

    I love the swimsuit photo! and you would kick my a@#.

  7. That's a great thing to be able to say! You now have to drop the phrase, "I got an email from Dean K. today" into every conversation for the next week.

    The food looks delish too! Congrats on being picked :)

  8. Super jealous about the email. But awesome! And Jason has a fantastic idea. It's making me hungry...

  9. Not sure when you added it, but that swimsuit photo is out of control sexy - the white underwear just completes that "kick-ass" look.

  10. AWESOME

    (the swimsuit pic..although the dean thing is kinda cool too)

    ReplyDelete
  11. So awesome.

    Love your menu.

    Love your undies.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the swimsuit pic - you trendsetter, you! :) And who can resist Shart Brownies (although I have to admit I was a proponent of Baby Ruth bars!)?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love Jason's blog. The menus are great.

    I'd love to be featured but not sure if I'm kick ass enough. BTW, love the swimsuit pic.

    Dean is awesome. That's cool that he emailed you.

    ReplyDelete
  14. LMAO! I love that Dean wants a copy!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You make me laugh out loud every. single. day.
    Thank you for being so awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. and I've been just Photoshopping my head on his body!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just found you through Jason and I'm in tears at my desk...... love the FAQ section........ love the posts that i've read so far!

    I needed a laugh today.....battling being sick SUCKS!

    ReplyDelete
  18. ha! Such appropriate names.

    I could just see Dean's assistant showing up to get the mail with you loitering in the lobby waiting to to attack him. "Where's Dean? He doesn't get his own mail?? I came here to deliver this Christmas card in person, dammit!!"

    ReplyDelete
  19. If Dean is not worthy who is? Probably the shart brownies! Loving the suit pic--was that the one in the grab bag?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Teamarcia - no. Haven't gotten that one yet. I'll model it in all it's glory once I do.

    ReplyDelete
  21. that's a cute idea, the athlete's plate! maybe dean will write you into his will...i mean, he's on your xmas card. doesn't get more family than that!

    ReplyDelete
  22. BAHAHA shart brownies. They look delightful, too. (Nice work Jason!) Also? I really think you should start showing up at the gym in your sexy white underwear/black suit combo. The posse would love that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I sure hope your undies don't get caught on any pool equipment laying around as THAT would be embarassing.....

    What did the PPosse think of the outfit? Did they comment?

    I tried to get them into the menu but everytime I found something I just laughed and couldn't bring myself to do it.

    As soon as you pick somebody out let me know as I love stalking (a la you and Dean-O at the PO Box) other blogs to get to know the people out in the world.

    Happy Eating.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would stalk the PO Box just to see if he picks it up personally!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the new picture of you....hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Genius! I love the Shart bownies, but I think the Party in my Cabana Cookies look the best!

    I probably have too much food on my blog already to be featured...but still...frosting covered in peanut butter and dipped in chocolate? (With a hard workout on the side???)

  27. Still giggling about your Ahtletes Plate recipe titles but the food looks really yummy. I was happy for the link to the interview you did, I had not seen it before.

    "You" are my celebrity news, whenever you comment on my blog. hehehe

  28. so i think i entered the inner realm of runners. you are funny.

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOVE IT. totally stalk the PO box. i'm jealous over here. and that new picture is gold. pure gold.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well, I'm not sure why you wouldn't want me on your Christmas card, but I guess Dean is the next best!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You have your own menu and you are close to Dean - you da woman! =)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I put something extra special for you on my blog post today. Yes, I might be brown nosing. Great, that's funny too :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hold on... I'll be right back, but first I have to wipe up the lemon water that I just spewed all over my desk when I saw your page with the swim suit/underwear pic. OMG.

    Such hilarity with the Athlete's Plate!

    I think you should nominate me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think Dean is your new BFF. You can now exchange recipes and poop stories... maybe he can even play a game of Fart-in-the-Round with the fam.

    Jason's blog is open in my other window... gotta leave it open until I decide which recipes to print...

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is awesome about Dean K! ha Love it.

    Happy Holidays to you and your clan.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So, did you MIND sending Dean a copy? My bet it was in the very first mail out of your place.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Brownies AND cookies in one day, now that is a cool menu. Congrats!

    And your profile picture, amazed the picture taker held still long enough for the shot, I'd have been laughing too hard I think. Good one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Loving your new sidebar pic... very hot, don't know why you wasted your Christmas cards on your fam and Dean when you could've just gone with that one?!

    Congrats on the athletes plate feature... just think if you hadn't gotten hurt, then you probably wouldn't have qualified for the swimming upstream salmon and brown rice, I'm thinking he could have some how incorporated the pussy posse. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those meals sounds delicious and all but for some reason I have to use the bathroom now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. How do you make that look right ? UM, Nice job. I got nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Laurie - read what I wrote above. Everytime I tried to put the Pussy Posse in a recipe name I laughed so hard that I had to stop. Must have been about 4 or 5 dishes before I just threw the idea away b/c I was getting an ab workout.

    ReplyDelete
  42. cool. love the email with dean. and can't wait to see the grab bag bathing suit pic.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love his "Athlete's Plate" posts! I don't know how he comes up with the stuff he does! Ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I.heart.Dean. Love his chapter in Ultramarathon man on the Western States 100...dreamy!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Um, I'm kinda wondering....now that we are BFF's and I met Mr. SUAR and all, you ARE planning on putting me on next year's Xmas card, right?

    ReplyDelete
  46. That's got to be one of the best blog ideas I have heard in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Jason rocks. The Shart brownies had me laughing out loud. You eat one first. ha

    And yeah, for the record, if I ever got an EMAIL from Dean K, I would frame it, not to mention a picture with him. ha You have his PO Box?? Can I come stalk it with you???
