Grey day.I did see the bright light of the approaching train, though! I don’t think I’ve seen the front of an East Nashville train yet. I thought it would be loud and fast, but it was actually quiet and slow.And I was slow, too! Ha. I joined a Monday night volleyball league and was sort of dragging this morning after a late-night game.
Worth it, though! I really like my teammates (who are all about 7 feet tall) and it’s sort of fun to do a sport where you have to actually think and do something other than run in a straight line. I did manage to pick up the pace for miles three and four of my seven-mile journey, though: 7:19, 7:09. Race day is less than three weeks away — yikes! This half marathon really snuck up on me. Let’s see if I can magically become super fast in 19 days.So. Remember the delicious dinner I alluded to yesterday? Well, here it is. MEATLOAF! I know meatloaf is sort of a love/hate thing… but I am on the love side.It all started when I discovered a Ziploc bag full of ground beef in our freezer. So I skimmed through the beef glossary of Cook’s Illustrated for inspiration. As one does.
And I found an amazing meatloaf recipe! It’s somehow been published by Food Network if you want to check it out. As you can see, I obviously omitted the bacon it called for. I mean, bacon on meatloaf? That’s a whole new level of meatiness that I just can’t take.Served with some greens and mashed sweet potatoes. We served it up on Sunday night — perfect meal to wrap up the weekend!And now I gotta wrap up this post. Have a lovely Tuesday!
- Meatloaf: Love it or hate it?
- Do you live near train tracks? Does the sound wake you up?
- Play any other sports apart from running?
