friday roundup

Hello! I warned you on Wednesday that today’s post was going to be random. And I always stick to my word. So let’s do a list, because everyone loves lists!

1. I ate hot chicken. Somehow this event almost escaped blog land, but the other day my mom was in town and we had a “hot” date at Party Fowl. Hot chicken is kind of a thing in Nashville.party fowl in nashville tn hot chickenI got the hot chicken cobb salad. Those are SMOKED hard-boiled eggs in there! Kinda weird but good.hot chicken salad at party fowl restaurant in nashville tn2. I baked a pie! I’m usually more of a cake/cookies person, but my neighbors were having an outdoor cookout the other night and I felt like a pie was more appropriate. Since rhubarb is in season, I went wild with a strawberry-rhubarb creation. (I should have listed The Kitchn as another great recipe source in my post yesterday!)the kitchen strawberry rhubarb pie with lattice pattern3. I found the answers to all of your life questions. Find peace in the very important information shared below:

4. I missed National Running Day and National Donut Day. Since I write my blog posts at 5 am I’m usually oblivious to what day it is. National Running Day sort of slipped by me, but I did happen to go for a run!0603150647As for Donut Day, I’m going to have to postpone that one. I would love to eat a donut right now but not sure that would be wise to do the day before a race. Come tomorrow, though, I’ll be ready to treat myself. 
5. Speaking of race, it’s coming up! I’m feeling good about my training and am excited to head back to Ashevilleasheville_mountain_to_sea_trail_IMG_4088Time to go pack my bags. See you soon!

  • Ever been to Asheville?
