Katie and I were supposed to meet up for a run this morning but the slick sidewalks and thunderstorm warnings made spin class sound a little more appealing. I’ve traded in quite a few runs lately for spin classes or strength training (or sleep) … can you tell I’m over summer running?
Instead of focusing on the weather, let’s have an apple fritter!
Yesterday morning I had a coffee date with my pal Tracee and when I found out that The Red Bicycle gets donuts delivered FRESH EVERY MORNING all the way from KENTUCKY I figured I had to try one. Of all the fried donut delicacies, I think apple fritters and maple glazed are my favorite . Though sometimes I buy sprinkled ones just because they make for the best photos. #bloggerprobs
Coincidentally, I had a second date with Tracee after work! She happened to be playing a show near my office so I dropped by to hear her sing. This song is my fave.
Posting this photo as proof that sometimes (very rarely) I stay out until sunset. Beautiful skies in Nashville last night!
When I got home dinner was waiting for me. Love my slow cooker. Regular readers might recognize this old standby — Martha’s white bean broccoli soup. I used dried beans and kept them simmering with the broth, onions, and garlic all day long on low heat. After 6-8 (or 12 hours, in my case!) hours, add broccoli, close the lid, and cook on high for 15 minutes.
The blend and serve with all your favorite toppings. Mine include cheese and bacon
Slice of buttered rosemary-garlic bread on the side! We only have a few sprigs left in our garden and I’m putting them to use in some savory loaves lately.
Time to grab my umbrella and get out of here!
