Hello.This wooden lady welcomed us to the Smiling Elephant last night! We loved this (famous) hole in the wall so much last time we visited that we’ve been dying to go back. The pad Thai, as usual, did not disappoint!We also tried the papaya salad, which was a bit too hot for my liking because I guess I’m just a wimp. Anthony — and my parents, who are in town visiting! — loved it, though.But actually, Smiling Elephant wasn’t the highlight of our night. Listening to our friend Tracee was! You can rock out like you were there, too, by listening on her website I know this is a running blog, but for the next three days it’s going to be a random blog. My hip has been feeling a little funky since the marathon, so I’m giving it a few days of rest.
So instead of running news, I’m bringing sweet news! And by sweet I mean dessert. And by dessert I mean, oh my goodness, desserts galore. I just got this email:
Guys, I’m inches away from total baking FAME. I’m so pumped to be a finalist in 12th & Broad’s Seasons Treatings competition! Mostly because this gives me an excuse to make and taste-test baked goods all weekend.
Speaking of which, I’ll be back with some bread later today!
