Good morning! I’m glad I didn’t run today because it’s gross and grey out. Supposed to be nice tomorrow morning, though — perfect for a long run. BUT I did squeeze in a few extra miles before the skies turned dark yesterday. My brother-in-law, Joe, just moved here and turns out his new job is right down the street from my office. So we decided to start a lunchtime run club We covered about 2.5 miles together, one of which was over the pedestrian bridge (completing a 3-day bridge-running streak for me!). A breath of fresh air in the middle of a busy workday felt awesome. I could see this becoming a weekly outing… right Joe?One thing that definitely is a weekly happening: taco night.Tacos are just too tasty and easy NOT to make on a weekly basis. I’m pretty sure Anthony and I could eat Mexican food every day for the rest of our lives. I mean, we did eat it for eight days straight on our honeymoon…Okay, I wouldn’t say my Mexican is quite as authentic as the stone-ground homemade tortillas above… but I’m it’s still pretty darn tasty.For these pulled pork tacos, I threw the meat (Boston butt… try not to giggle when you ask the butcher for it) in the slow cooker with some spices and citrus. Then we pan-fried the meat to get it nice and crispy.We also sauteed some random spinach that I spotted in our fridge. Sort of weird but we just washed it down with beer for good measure.and now it’s time to get this day started! See you this weekend!
- Does anyone know any vegetable-y Mexican side dishes? I’m always at a loss.
- Do you have a lunch break?
- To my married folk: Where did you go for your honeymoon?
