Morning!!!! Would you like a fancy coffee? Anthony’s parents gave us a wonderful Breville espresso machine as a housewarming gift. It makes some seriously delicious coffee that pairs wonderfully with bacon.Anthony and I have a little tradition in our little family called Big Stack of Bacon Sunday. It’s been going strong for almost a year!
What else have we been eating? On Friday I found a pork tenderloin in our freezer. It’s sort of like finding a $20 bill you forgot in your back pocket, but way better. (Did anyone else just imagine a pork tenderloin in your pocket? That would be uncomfortable)
Anyways. I covered it in herbs and baked it up in 20 minutes. Delish!Paired with some roasted potatoes and carrots and salad and WINE.I’ve been on a white wine vinegar salad dressing kick, but Friday I went back to my old friend balsamic for a nice change.Aerial dinner shot? Okay.After dinner, Anthony and I watched the LEGO movie and it was probably one of the happiest and funniest things I’ve watched in a long time. Go rent it!
On Saturday I woke up super early to go on a run with the PR Bandits, but it was raining, I was sleepy, and Anthony and I decided that a 6 am trip to Home Depot sounded better.We have a ton of house projects going on and decided that an early start would be the best way to knock out yesterday’s to-do list.
Don’t worry – the rain cleared up a few hours later and I was able to get my run in.I ran over the railroad tracks to make my way to Shelby Park…I’ve never done and more than 4-5 miles out in Shelby Park, so was curious to see what the rest of the trails held.
One thing I found was a massive pile of metal junk.And the other thing I found was this random suburb that takes over the trail around mile 5.5.I cruised through the hood for a while, and then turned around and headed back!By mile 14, the heat and humidity had set in and I had to run uphill to get home… so that was sorta tough. But I made it!I definitely missed having company on this long run, but overall it wasn’t so bad.
And the Brewer’s Festival that followed wasn’t so bad either. Recap coming tomorrow!
Have a lovely Sunday!!
- What’s the longest run you’ve done solo?
- Most money you’ve ever randomly found? (Once I found a $100 bill in a used book that I bought, no kidding)
- Random: Does anyone have any eggplant recipes? I need to cook an eggplant today and don’t know what to do.
