So, I realized I missed sharing Wednesday’s run! It was an East Nasty group day and look who was there. After months of injury, my running buddy Rayna is back on her feet again. Yay for running buddies.I covered five with the group plus four more solo. I must have been asleep for most of the run because this is the only photo I took and I don’t even remember taking it. Cool house, though — right? Every time I see a big old house, I’m like “I would love to live there, but hate to clean it.” Maybe I should join the Tiny House movement.Ramblings aside… other leftover photos from this week to share with you guys include this very photogenic bowl of lentils. (Aren’t slow cooker meals the ugliest yet most delicious things ever?)We spent a ton of $$$$ on groceries the other week so I was on a mission to keep this week’s budget tight. Lentils make for a pretty cheap dinner date.I followed this recipe but pitched in a ton of celery and carrots for some added veggie power. Topped with greek yogurt and cilantro! We served the stew atop a recent Costco find: this 90-second quinoa/brown rice blend. I think I like slow-cooker rice and quinoa better, but have to say that these little pouches are great to have on hand for convenience. This dinner cooked for 10 hours and 90 seconds, but I only had to actively prep it for about 15 minutes. The joys of crock pot cooking.And that’s all I’ve got for you guys today! What are you up to this weekend? We’re hoping that the weather holds out enough for a nice long run and a backyard barbecue. See you on Sunday.
