Happy weekend! Hope yours has been run-derful.Anthony had the running crazies yesterday and opted in to join me for 10.5 wintery miles.We did a classic loop I love: Arlington to Memorial Bridge to the Mall to Dupont to Georgetown to Key Bridge and back.I used to do this route all the time when I lived in the city — in the reverse order of course :).
My favorite 0.5 mile part is definitely the Mt. Vernon bridge, which looks best in the warm tones of diva sunglasses.It was a bit grey out…But I busted out a new pair of HOT pink PureConnects to brighten things up!All in all, it was a lovely run. Nice to stretch my legs out for some long miles — I think this might be the longest post-marathon run I’ve done?
I should really start separating my food and running thoughts into two different posts, because I always fail to find a natural segue…
So… fish?We had a can of chipotles in adobe sauce and a can of hominy that were taking up precious cabinet space. Enter this recipe: roast salmon with sweet chipotle glaze and hominy puree. It uses them both!The salmon had a smoky sweet, spicy flavor. The hominy was just okay — like the reviews of this recipe suggested, I added lime juice for some zest. Plus some simple pan-fried zucchinis on the side!This meal was super quick and easy to make, but I wouldn’t rave about it. We give it an official Mary-and-Anthony-approved score of 7/10.
The long weekend, though, gets a 10/10. Hope you’re having a good one!
