There were a lot of hills in DC, but none like this one.DC people — imagine compacting the Cathedral hill into .5 miles, steepening it to new heights! And Nashville people, just head to Barclay Road and Riverside Drive to experience it yourself. Like the East Nasty route map says, you’ll want to think your last happy thought before you go up.I hadn’t done this route since early summer — and though it was still tough when I tackled it yesterday, at least it wasn’t as humid this time around.Anthony joined for the torture, too! And because “the nasty” route, as it’s called, is particularly hilly… you get an East Nasty run club sticker at the end. There’s no better gift in the world.Except the gift of a cheeseburger.We’re still chipping away at our 100-lb supply of CSA meat, which has slowly taken over our freezer! Our membership came to a close a few weeks ago, so we’re hoping to finish up alllll of the meat by 2015. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.Though we usually received straight-up cuts of strange and exciting meat, one week we got pre-made burger patties. They were really good — probably one of our favorites so far!
Paired with a salad. Speaking of which, does anyone (especially Nashville folk) have tips for certain brands, or certain stores, for lettuce that doesn’t get slimy and expired quickly? Since we’ve moved here, I can’t seem to find any lettuce that stays fresh for more than a few days. Even when I buy lettuce with an expiration date 10 days out, it still goes off really quickly. I know, my life is very stressful.But other than my slimy lettuce probs, I think it’s going to be a good day! See ya.
