Behind The Butter

New Culinary Delights

I really got what I deserved this evening.

I KNEW I shouldn’t even attempt running with my still raw and sore blisters, but being the incredibly stubborn girl that I am, I moleskinned and duct taped up my feet….


And stuffed my feet into my running shoes……..

MAJOR ouch. Couldn’t even walk two steps. And then, I had to peel/rip the moleskin and tape off my blisters, which only hurt them more (I’ll spare you the lovely photos but know there was a lot of screaming going through the house). In the end, I wrapped soft tissue on top of my blisters, applied more moleskin on top, took out the orthotics in my running shoes (this helped a lot), gingerly put my feet in running shoes and BIKED instead.

Every time I get ahead of myself, God “gently” reminds me to slow down, Jenna, and be patient. Patience, patience, patience……I’m learning!

I did have a lovely 40 minute bike ride followed by some upper body strength and crunches. Before I left I had a wheat english muffin with pb and preserves—


Christie cooked dinner!!!!


Guys…I’ve begged her for the sake of ELR, but she will not give out her “secret” recipe. By taste, she used a mix of ground chicken, ALMONDS (??), sundried tomatoes, bell pepper and celery….with whole wheat pasta. For a side dish, we had melon. And wine.


It sure was interesting!!!!!!!! Actually, it was rather good and I cleaned my plate. She said she originally wanted to make burgers and so she ground up almonds to mix in with the ground chicken and peppers (don’t ask…) but then it was too “soupy” so she mixed it with pasta instead. This is why I love her.

Since Christie was so generous in cooking such a lovely meal, I made dessert!


Cinnamon banana soft serve!!!!!!! I was in luck because her mom has a food processor and bag upon bag of frozen bananas in the freezer. Christie couldn’t believe for the life of her there was no milk or anything in this…..I still don’t know if she believes me that it was JUST bananas. I used four small-ish bananas in this so we each probably ate about two. Nothing like a healthy dose of potassium for dessert! πŸ˜‰

I sported my Murphy-Goode shirt!


What a strange, crazy summer it has been. Who knows what may come next!! πŸ˜‰ Well actually I sort of do… month from today I’ll be with Kath and Tina at BlogHer Food in San Francisco!

I’m off to get some much needed writing done. Work at 9 again tomorrow….sad that tomorrow is already Wednesday and I’m headed home on Friday!

    I know this sounds gross and I don’t know if someone has suggested this to you, but back when I was a running newbie, I used to get lots of blisters. The fastest way for them to heals is to “pop” them with a sharp object sterilized in rubbing alcohol and squeeze out the liquid. This will allow the skin to dry faster and in a couple of days it should be pain free for you to run on, with moleskin on, of course.

  • Rebecca
    August 25, 2009 at 8:36 pm

    Ouch! I hope your feet feel better. Chicken and almond burgers sound amazing but the pasta looks delish too! I love banana soft serve but mine never comes out looking like that because I have to use a blender since my food processor is broken.

  • VeggieGirl

  • Danielle J.
    August 25, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    Just in case the tissue/moleskin combo doesn’t work (and I’m not sure if someone already told you about these, so disregard if they have!) Band-aid makes blister ampoules that are really great for protecting blisters and medicating them while they heal. I bought some a few weeks ago when my running shoes started giving me blisters on my long runs. I would still get blisters even while wearing the little ampoule because of the friction that still happens between the blistered food and shoe so I don’t think you’ll be able to run pain-free, but it may help with general shoe wearing and comfort.

    Have an awesome Wednesday!

  • Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope
    August 25, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    OUCH! Just keep taking it easy Jenna. It’s better to stay off your feet now, let the blisters heal, and be back to power sooner than ever. πŸ™‚

    Good luck again tomorrow and have fun!

  • Lindsay

    You’re keeping those things drained right? I got the same blister on my arch last week, and I drained it immediately every time it filled with puss and when I wore running shoes I put gauze on it with adhesive on the sides, and otherwise it was in the air…..didn’t miss a beat of my training and it’s peeled down to fresh skin and I’m doing just body glide for shoe wear now. DRY in every way is key!

    Hi. Can anyone tell me how Jenna makes that banana dish? Does she just blend bananas in a food processor? Is anything else added? Thanks!

  • Bree
    August 26, 2009 at 9:02 am

    Jenna, listen to your mom (& make sure you use enough so there is no bandage sticking – speaking from personal experience – you basically end up back at square one). I had blisters at the beginning of the summer from wearing new shoes, they were rubbed raw, not pretty. I didn’t run for 2 weeks, instead I slipped on thin socks and my Birkenstocks and hoped on the elliptical, yeah it was a great look…

  • Kelly
    August 26, 2009 at 9:56 am

    How do you make the banana soft serve again? I’ve seen this on some other food blog. Is it just using your food processor and frozen bananas? Letting them go for how long? Please post something on this, pretty please?!

    Hope your foot feels better, no duct tape…ouch! Listen to your body and let it rest.

    • jenna
      August 27, 2009 at 7:11 am


      All you do is just process frozen bananas in the vitamix or food processor until smooth! easy, easy!
