We’re halfway through the week! It’s been a while since I met up with East Nasty for their Wednesday morning run, so today I got out extra early to get there on time. Is anyone else as happy as I am that the sunrise is at 5:40 these days? Pretty sure most of the world is asleep, but Anthony and I wide awake and loving it.Today’s route took us downtown. There’s something special about being on Broadway when it’s 100% empty. (Except for that oncoming traffic… don’t worry, I dodged it.) PS, is it dorky to wear your watch outside of your sleeve? I’m trying to start a new fashion trend.Then back over the bridge and toward home. Nice seeing you this morning, Nashville. I usually limit myself to three photos per run, but I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of these beauties. Nine miles, done! I’m feeling back to normal after coming down with a cold last week. And feeling ready for my 5k this weekend!
In other news, it’s an official fact: Anthony and I could eat Mexican food every day for the rest of our lives. (Our longest streak to date: 10 days straight on our honeymoon)I had some verde sauce leftover and frozen from when I made enchiladas a while back. I tossed it in the slow cooker with some chicken, cooked up some Mexican brown rice, and called it dinner! For the rice: I pre-cooked it, and then mixed it with jalepenos, tomatoes, onion, and spices in a stove-top pan to dry it out a bit and give it that crispy texture. Topped with some sauteed bell peppers for some veggie power.
Speaking of rice, by the way: I listened to this podcast yesterday and found the brown rice taste test quite fascinating (as well as the segment on the pork industry.)
A couple of tortilla chips may have found their way onto our plates, too. Crunch!Adios amigos!
