Greetings from CLE!Cleveland has been good to me so far. (I’m in Cleveland for a work conference btw, for anyone wondering why the heck I’m here)
Amazingly cool weather and nice, flat streets. Perfect for an easy run! I created an on-the-spot route that started downtown and headed east on Superior (I love running east first — right into the sunrise!)Then, I hopped over the river to get a good view of the city.I ran around the Westside market, which was receiving early-morning shipments of fresh fruit, fish, and more. Must come back here for lunch! Maybe I can get a sandwich to go and eat it on this abandoned plaid loveseat.After touring Ohio City, I ran back across another bridge — so many bridges here! — to say hello to this man.Even though I had no idea where I was going, I must have looked like a local because I got stopped for directions twice on my run. Ha.
Thumbs up for Cleveland so far!So, how was the rest of your weekend?
Anthony and I were going to end ours with a casual dinner out somewhere, but then decided we’d rather splurge on some nice seafood to cook at home instead.This salmon recipe has been one of my all-time favorites for years. It’s pretty much the only way I cook salmon.
I also fired up the Weber like a true modern woman. To grill some… OKRA! A side of a rice/quinoa/lentil blend brought it all together… for under $20! I love a nice meal out, but I’m also content making something just as good (or DARE I say, better?) at home. I think this is a sign of getting old and grumpy.My only complaint about cooking at home: having to do dishes. Maybe next time you’ll see this salmon served atop paper plates with a plastic fork…
See you from C-Town tomorrow.
