I was oh so close to sleeping in today. Especially when I saw it was dark and 26 degrees outside.But I had the East Nasty crew waiting on me, so I got out there and did it! I ran to meet the group and then did five miles while we chatted away. There was hardly any wind (yay!) and a beautiful sunrise. Worth waking up for. I stuck with my friend Katie for most of the miles and then stopped to take one non-blurry photo before heading home Done and done! BTW my Garmin is still in the Eastern time zone, almost a year after moving from DC. Come on, Garmin! Of all the things, you should know exactly where we are. I took a hot shower as soon as I got home. And now I’m drinking tea, wrapped up in a blanket, with the heat set at 80 degrees while I write this. Weather wimp? Nah…
So. What’s on your menu this week? We went wild and cooked up some tuna steaks the other night. Tuna is definitely not a native species of Tennessee, unless you go to the Green Hills Trader Joe’s. Here, tuna is abundantly available in the frozen aisle.I can’t say this was the best tuna we’ve ever had — but we’re not sure whether it was the fish itself, or the way we cooked it on the grill. Next time I think we’re going to try and sear the steaks for less time on even higher heat, so that you get that nice rare-yet-charred result. There are actually a ton of questions on how to cook TJ’s tuna steaks, so I know we’re not alone in our quest to get them perfectly prepared:)
Sweet potatoes and spinach on the side.And then steak night turned into game night. Anthony helped fund the Viticulture board game on Kickstarter a while back, and the creator actually reached his funding goal! So we got our board game delivered the other day.It’s a really complex game, but I think we’re getting the hang of it! Considering starting a Nashville board game club if anyone is interested.
Oh, speaking of clubs — I forgot to talk about lunch run club last week! My brother-in-law and I are still going strong and did our usual route. Don’t judge my turtleneck… it’s the warmest, coziest shirt ever — and looks even cooler when paired with my diva sunglasses. It’s the race shirt from Marine Corps and the only turtleneck I own. Everyone’s allowed to have one, right?Have a great day!
