Good day! Popping in to share a couple of runs and some random eats of late. Starting with today’s outing with East Nasty:
We ran around Nissan Stadium which made me think of football and the fall. Anthony and I don’t really watch football but every year we say we should (more as a social thing that anything else). Maybe this fall I’ll finally make the effort to learn the rules and figure out how to enjoy sitting on the couch for 3+ hours and watching the game. I think the secret might be a steady supply of wings and potato skins. Good idea? Bad idea? (The football, not the snacks. I know the snacks are a good idea.)
Anyways, tangents aside, this was a good run. Glad I had the group to get me out there!
On Monday I headed out for a solo jog. After a weekend of fun at the lake, it was pretty tough to wake up for this workout and I was asleep for 99% of the run.
At least it was sunny skies kept my eyes open and feet moving.
After a couple of flat runs over the weekend, the East Nashville hills felt especially painful on this run! Gotta love them. One day when I actually sign up for a race again I’ll be thankful for all this unintentional hill training…
On the food front, meals have been all over the place lately! On Monday we were still hosting our friends Laki and Bernie and their family, who arrived back from the lake late that afternoon. We needed dinner on the fly. What’s better than a pile of nachos? We pile everything into a foil cup and then broil until the cheese is nice and melty. And yes, that’s my slow cooker AND bread machine going in the background. The kitchen is always on at our house!
I also met my brother-in-law for lunch the other day at Burger Up! We’ve both been wanting to try this new East Nashville restaurant and it was the bomb. Probably one of the best burger joints I’ve been to in a while. Even though I guess I didn’t technically get a burger? Does a patty melt count?
And lastly, I met some other blogger/media/advertising friends at Chuahan Ale & Masala House on Monday! What is this orange ball of goodness? A Nashville hot chicken pakora, of course . Forgot how great this restaurant is — it’s been over a year since Anthony and I went and we need to go back! There are SO many new and popular restaurants in Nashville right now that it’s a bit overwhelming.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have a photo of a vegetable to share! Ha.
