Good morning! We woke up to dark, rainy skies today. I took it to the treadmill.Maybe if I put this photo in black and white I will look slightly less shocking. The pictures of me on the Internet just keep getting better.1.5 miles easy, 5.5 miles @ 7:16 pace. Now if I can just hold that speed for another 6.5 miles this Sunday… and let’s hope the race day weather is a little more inspiring than today’s forecast.Moving right along to dinner. Last night we hosted our friends Rayna and Kevin over for a little Sunday night supper:On the menu: butternut squash lasagna! This Cooking Light recipe never gets old (and never photographs well).Looks like I made this same concoction December 3, 2013 and on October 31, 2012. Three years in a row!
Plus salad.And a homemade pumpkin pie! I use a mix of Food Network and Cook’s Illustrated to freestyle the recipe. I overload the filling so that the crust can barely hold up. Key ingredients: real pumpkin and real ginger. And real whipped cream should go without saying!Good friends, good food = good way to end the weekend. Also, I feel like I should admit that I got blueberry jam all over my keyboard this morning, so every time I typed the letter T in this post, my finger stuck to the key.
See you later!
