We woke up to SNOW!First question was: Can we run in it?
YES WE CAN. This was the soft, pillowy snow — not the icy kind that made us slip and fall the other week!We were slow but steady. Running in the winter wonderland was actually really fun. Plus I got to wear my ridiculous furry hat which is my favorite accessory in the world.I’m lucky that I married someone as crazy as I am. We were pretty much the only humans out in East Nashville this morning What a morning! We’re both working from home today, obviously, so hopefully the outing will help postpone cabin fever.
In other news… we’re running a little low on groceries and I refused to go to the grocery store in the pre-storm madness yesterday. So I rummaged through the pantry to see what we had on hand. Lentils!!Our Costco-sized bag of lentils includes a mix of red, green, and black lentils that could probably feed us until 2017. I took two big scoops of these and added in some chopped carrots, celery, onion, diced tomatoes, and garlic. Plus some spices and chicken broth… all of which went into the slow cooker.We served the stew atop leftover brown rice from the other night. Plus a dollop of Greek yogurt + sprinkle of parsley.Not bad for an unplanned, on-the-spot, no recipe meal! I was this.close to considering adding some cayenne or chile in adobo for a bit of spice, but unsure whether that might throw off the whole concoction. Maybe next time I’ll try adding one of those in! (Wild, I know.)Good thing we have plenty of leftovers for today and tomorrow. Something tells me we’re not going to be able to leave the driveway for a while….
