Turkey Trot Playlist and an Easy Recipe

November 21, 2012

Word on the street is that the average American consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving.  Holy gluttony!  It is partially for this reason that I will be running in the 39th annual United Way Turkey Trot in Denver.  I figure that getting four miles in before I eat four slices of pumpkin pie is probably a pretty solid idea.

I’ve built the following playlist to jam out to during the run (no, I do not think it’ll take me 20 songs to run four miles–rather, I have iPod A.D.D. and skip around a lot).  I wanted to share it with all of you in case you want to hit the pavement before you hit the dinner table tomorrow!  Below the playlist is my favorite casserole recipe, which judging by its ingredients, isn’t very healthy.

1.  Ellie Goulding – “Anything Could Happen”

2.  Rita Ora feat. Tinie Tempah – “R.I.P.”

3.  Flo Rida – “I Cry”

4.  P!nk – “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”

5.  Florence + The Machine – “Shake It Out”

6.  Kanye West – “All of the Lights”

7.  Nelly – “Just a Dream”

8.  Monsters and Men – “Little Talks”

9.  Lady Gaga – “Monster”

10.  Eric Church – “Smoke a Little Smoke”

11.  Miley Cyrus – “Party in the U.S.A.”

12.  Lil Wayne feat. Drake – “Right Avoe It”

13.  Katy Perry – “Teenage Dream”

14.  Lupe Fiasco – “The Show Goes On”

15.  Taylor Swift – “The Story of Us”

16.  Nicki Minaj – “Super Bass”

17.  Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch – “Sweet Nothing”

18.  Little Big Town – “Tornado”

19.  Rihanna feat. Drake – “What’s My Name”

20.  Kanye West – “Power”

No Measure Corn Casserole (Seriously, if you mess this up, you shouldn’t be in the kitchen)


1 can whole kernel corn
1 can cream style corn
1 (8 oz.) carton sour cream
2 eggs, beaten
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 stick butter, melted
Pour all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix them together.  Oil a casserole dish.  Pour the mixture into the dish.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 minutes.  Enjoy.  Then turn on the playlist and run until it’s over, because this puppy is fattening!
I wish you all the happiest of Thanksgivings!  May it be filled with family, friends and gratitude.  I’m so grateful for every single one of you!
