Hello! Even though it’s Thursday, it feels like Friday to me. Tomorrow, I’m off to DC (and then to Richmond for the marathon!) But first, let’s back up to yesterday… I ended up going for a morning run, after all.Since I only had to run for 30 minutes, I was able to squeeze in an easy jog in the a.m. I realized that it would be dark outside if I went after work, so got my butt out there in the 35-degree sunlight and did it. I’m sort of the opposite of a procrastinator (one reason why I do 90% of everything before 9 am) and hate having a run “hang over my head” all day.
Anyways. I strolled through East Nashville’s “Little Hollywood.” It’s a few random blocks where most of the houses are stucco-style. Like they belong in Hollywood. This pink one might be my favorite.and then there’s this.I love my neighborhood.
On the food front, this week has been a soup-er one.I had another whole chicken to work with thanks to our CSA. I’d never done chicken soup from scratch and figured it was time to tackle this classic creation. Mom and Grandma would be proud. As well as the Pioneer Woman, whose recipe I used for inspiration.My first whole-chicken noodle soup turned out pretty well! Next time I might try roasting the chicken first for more flavor. And using thicker, more pasta-like noodles. For some reason, these swirly egg ones were too… slippery. Does that make sense?Unfortunately Anthony’s been out of town this week, so I’ve been dining solo. The other night I paired my soup with a movie called Begin Again (from the creators of Once.) Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?And that’s it for now! See you at some point tomorrow, probably from DC!
- Would you ever live in a pink house?
- Thoughts on a mailbox with legs? I could see this becoming a huge trend…
- Are you a procrastinator or not?
