Good Monday morning to you.My week kicked off with a lovely run. Gorgeous sunrise today! I met up with my friend Katie for some miles through Shelby park.It’s nice that I got in 9 miles but the BEST thing about it all is that I wore long sleeves the whole time and didn’t die of heat exhaustion. Fall is coming, guys!!But before it gets too cold, we’re getting the most out of our grill. This weekend we put some shrimp on the barbie!I made this marinade and let the shrimp soak during the day, and then Anthony skewered and grilled around dinnertime. Question: Do you think it’s better/cheaper/healthier to make your own marinade, or should I just buy them at the store?
While he manned the barbie (he is Australian, after all), I roasted some veggies and added them to some quinoa with a splash of lime and cilantro. Team work!In the quinoa: baby tomatoes, corn, and peppers (all roasted); avocado, feta, and chickpeas.Loved this meal! We ate the leftovers cold the next day and it was just as good.Also, I must have been too excited about this meal to adjust any of the settings on my camera, so sorry about the blah photos.
On the plus side: Because I’m feeling extra hungry today, let’s just end with some lovely photos of cookies.I made a batch of these babies over the weekend. We definitely made a dent in the three-dozen batch ourselves…But I also bagged about half of them to take around to our neighbors! Since we moved in, we’re slowly getting to know most of the people who live nearby.And I figure if I just keep delivering cookies to everyone’s doors, we’ll be besties in no time.
Have a good one!
