After a whirlwind trip to New Orleans, I was ready to come home to the streets of Nashville!I dragged myself out of bed just in time to meet up with East Nasty for our usual Wednesday run.I did 3.5 with the group and 3 more solo. After three days of gym time/treadmill running, it felt really nice to get outside again. 55-degree temps didn’t hurt, either I’m taking it pretty easy this week because I ran a lot of miles last week. Plus, I have a 10k coming up this Saturday and need to rest up!
Not only was a hometown run awaiting me when I got back from NOLA — a home-cooked meal was, too!We recently signed up for a CSA (more on that later) and were wondering what the heck to do with a pork shoulder steak. I found this recipe for Spanish-style pork shoulder tacos. And though I think Guy Fieri is really obnoxious he also strikes me as someone who would know how to make a good taco. So we went for it.
And it was good! A nice change from our usual chicken/bean tacos with lots of garlic and spice.For the corn tortillas and traditional crema, I stopped by El Jaliciense. A 36-pack of corn tortillas cost $1.80… ¡trato hecho!Next time, I think we need to pan-fry the tortillas in butter to make them moist and toasty — ours were a little on the dry side. Because melty butter makes everything better.And that’s it for now, amigos! I might be back later with a bread post.
- Do you speak another language?
- Guy Fieri: like him or not?
- How often do you take a low-mileage/rest week?
