Holy fog!Today I did a tempo run in the clouds. I could barely see more than a block in front of me — which was actually sort of nice, because then the hills of East Nashville didn’t seem so daunting :).Do you drink soda? I love this sign but stopped drinking Coke about two years ago. No looking back!Even though it was dark and grey for 95% of my run, at the very very end I was rewarded with a pretty pink sunrise.I think I covered about 5 miles, but will never know — my Garmin seems to be on the fritz these days. I’m hoping it was just the fog that kept the satellites from loading?And that’s a wrap! Moving right along to dinner…
On the menu last night: a go-to salmon dish. Looks fancy but is very easy.I stumbled across this Dijon salmon recipe from Allrecipes a few years ago, and it’s one of the handful of meals that I actually go back and make more than once The salmon took about 30 minutes to prepare and bake — the broccoli, about five!Although I could have done the sweet potatoes in the microwave, I decided to go slow and steady with those. My twice-baked method is worth the time investment:
First, you bake the potatoes in the oven, covered in foil, for an hour at 350 (which I did on Tuesday night while watching The Bachelor… really?! Whitney?!!! Sigh.), then refrigerate them overnight. The next day, bake them again at 350 for another 30-40 minutes in foil. When they’re done, remove the foil and discover the creamiest and mushiest potatoes in the world.
I just asked Anthony to describe what twice-baked potatoes are like and he said “silky soft.” Doesn’t get better than that!Alright people, I’m off! Check back later today for a special dinner recap!
