Happy weekend! Let’s fly through my latest run so we can get right to the pizza photos at the end of the post 😉Yesterday morning I’d planned to do a long run with the DC Road Runners, but my bed was just too cozy to wake up early… so a solo run it was!
I put on three layers of clothing and got my Rihanna station going on Pandora. Up first: An icy Potomac River.Then my favorite Cathedral Climb…and back downhill into the city again!Unfortunately, Rock Creek Park was closed and covered in snow, meaning I had to adjust my route (no big deal since I typically make my route on the fly anyways)So back to the city streets it was — where I came across this gem! It’s been a while since I spotted some street furniture so I was extra excited.At this point my poor iPhone froze to death, but I was able to resurrect it for a final picture of Lincoln.I covered about 12.5 miles in total — about a mile short of what I was aiming for, but good considering all the sliding, stopping, and stomping through the snow, ice, and chilly winds out there! Phew. That was cold.
As promised…. PIZZA!Ever since I’ve read about this “cauliflower pizza” craze, I’ve wanted to try it out. It was our main event for Friday night!
Making the cauliflower crust was sort of difficult (I followed this recipe), but putting on the toppings was easy :).Eating it, of course, wasn’t difficult at all.We thought the cauliflower-based crust was actually pretty good! It’s not as sturdy as real bread, of course, but still held up pretty well. It tasted good, too — not nearly as filling as regular pizza, but still a lot of flavor.We kept it simple with a salad (and endless wine) on the side. It was so cold out that we were happy to have a cozy night in! Today, though, we’re heading out for some Sunday fun. Have a restful day!
