Today’s another grey, rainy day, so why don’t we start with a warm bowl of soup?This creation is called “dump all of your random foods into the slow cooker” and it came out fabulously. It’s basically a vegetable soup + shredded chicken and chickpeas.
In the mix was an assortment of randomness from my fridge and freezer… let’s see if I can name all of the weird food in this soup. Carrots, celery, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, broccoli, sweet potato, chicken, dried chickpeas. I think that’s all of them but there is a very high chance I’m missing another odd vegetable.Throw all ingredients into the slow cooker (okay, I sauteed the onions with some garlic and olive oil first), add 8 cups of water/chicken broth and forget. Ten hours later, shred chicken with a fork and stick it back in the soup for a few minutes. Top with cheese (we used parmesan) and serve with toast! I filled my slow cooker almost all the way to the top with this soup, so it’s a good thing it turned out well. I’ll be eating this concoction for days.
And now, let’s venture outside this drizzly morning:Since the weather is so depressing I decided to head toward the bright lights of downtown today. After a long, quiet weekend, city streets are finally filling up again!
Don’t worry, I make sure to stop at all of the crosswalks ;). Fun fact: One time I actually caused a car wreck while crossing the street on a run (with the pedestrian go-ahead light, mind you) so I’m always extra careful. Broadway is looking kind of luminescent today. Don’t you think?Seven miles in the rain makes me feel just a little bit hardcore. And that’s a wrap!

- Most hardcore run you’ve ever done?
